I took over a small to medium sized forum, which I suppose is small in terms of most internet forums, but has quite a high profile as it deals with a small community of people based in one location.
One prolific member was banned previously by the administrator. That person knows the forum subject well, but is the type of person who never likes to admit they are wrong and often turns to attacking other members if they don't share the same view. Some long term members have said that they will quit the forum if that member ever returns.
That person even started a blog attacking and slandering the site and its members. Every now and again the person pops up under a different username on the forum, but from the style of writing, it is easy to spot them.
I know that person caused some trouble for the previous forum owner. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to deal with this kind of person?
