Since JAZZMAN has been silent (perhaps just setting back enjoying the rumble he has started) can he be simply considered a TROLL?
I would not be a bit surprised to learn that JAZZMAN was put in timeout by the admins.  Shame too because he was working on the record for the most consecutive posts without any technical content; 89 posts...

No, name calling isn't allowed here.

I won't call him a troll, but will say his posting activity resembled that of a troll.   Wink

I would not be surprised by that, and have no doubt that he'll be back.

Now I have heard everything a security risk by using your callsign on eham. Wow.
What security risk?Huh
Unless you are a Secret Agent...   Keeping it real.. Nuff Said..

Well, if you say something someone doesn't like (almost impossible to avoid these days), anyone can look up your home address on FCC ULS using your call sign and show up at your door. I kinda think that's a security risk. In my estimation, it's a bigger risk to have custom license plates with my callsign. ("Humm. Nice car. Let's see where he parks it...") But everyone's risk profile is different.

I've always considered the ignore feature a sign of intellectual weakness but considering how some serial posters here never have anything to say that comes remotely close to sane, I'm starting to reconsider my position.

"Intellectual weakness" can be exhibited only when one argues with an idiot....or to try changing their minds.

I think it was Mark Twain who said something to the effect, "It isn't wise to argue with an idiot because a bystander wouldn't be able to tell the difference!"

Well, I don't have any of these "guys" on ignore, but it sure is nice when they don't show up here.  When you have guys like "jazzman" whose sole purpose in life is to stir up chit where there wasn't any before, you have to wonder what form of "disorder"  they are suffering from.

Being in a large city, I learned long ago that I can pick those that I engage with. I'm not obligated to humor every nut job that's talking nonsense.

If someone approaches me and seems 'off', I can ignore them, or simply tell them no.

You can't change people. Let them be.
Let the naive ones humor them.

Ran across this awhile back.

'I think it's important to always keep in mind that, prior to the advent of internet discussion forums, there were many thousands and perhaps millions of mentally ill individuals in this country who were largely "out of sight and out of mind" to most Americans. these are people who might be on disability and spend virtually all of their time as shut-ins at home, so most people would never encounter them in work or social situations. for most of us, such people simply didn't exist. when these people would venture out into public, they would often have "episodes" and "outbursts" which would cause normal people to recoil, shun and ostracize them, thus causing them to further withdraw into their shut-in lives

but with the advent of internet discussion forums, these people are "in their element" here. they can now talk to literally millions of people from around the world, from the safety of their little hovels, without fear of any negative physical consequences they would expect to receive in the real world. hence they feel free to say whatever thought passes through their tortured minds, and there's not a damn thing anyone can do about it. this is the greatest development of their entire lives, and they often spend all day here, using multiple handles, to the exclusion of all other activities.'

That explains what's happening perfectly. Why would ham forums be any different?

For his sake, he better be nice, because I'm very accurate.
