Another forum I was on had one of these "characters." He claimed inconsistent mods for his bike, made big brags, and seemed to be argumentative and insulting (lots of name calling) for it's own sake. He had several short term bans. Eventually a bunch of us figured him out as just being bored, and engaged him as such for everyone's amusement--including his I believe. But he eventually earned a permanent ban.I was talking about the less than one percenters that spring up occasionally on bike forums. In the 4+ years I was a mod I probably saw about half a dozen of these characters. Typically posting random nonsensical posts containing left field thinking, controversial or inflammatory content, bragging/boasting etc. Generally banged out with skant regard for punctuation or grammer, typing what immediately enters their head.
