Sounds to me like Tony needed to learn the ancient usenet art of killfiling. Seriously, if somebody's so rude and provocative that you don't want to read what he writes anymore, just... don't.
Not that I'm suggesting you should go around plonking
anyone who disagrees with you and publically posting
your killfile like some kind of demented Skirvinesque
badge of pride, or anything. That's childish.
But I am saying that occasionally you'll run into
someone who makes himself so odious that you can't
deal with him any more. So don't.
