I'm curious about how CV handles abusive/rude users who continue to act inappropriately on the boards despite being directed to the CV posting guidelines and warned about their inappropriate postings? See the discussion here with the user James Draper, who has been abusing the board guidelines and posting inappropriate comments: Need to know the correct way to compute p-values for a two-way ANOVA across 4 groups with unequal sample sizes?
I've been attempting to help this particular user who wasn't satisfied with the fact that I initially advocated closing/moving his post to Stack Overflow given that his initial question was better suited for programming. I've tried to be very accommodating to this user, but he continues to use flippant language and make rude comments. Several of his posts required deletion, so it may be hard to get a feel for what was actually said originally and why I felt this user went beyond in appropriate. Is there any system in place for board moderators to either warn users or remove them from the site?
