I second some form of censure here.  I already filter this person's email
when I can, via my mail handler and client, but I am still subjected to his 
non-constructive constant arrogance when included in other's replies.

Obviously I find his tact, social skills, and ethics reprehensible or I
wouldn't have bothered taking the measures I have.  Simply put, people
are welcome to their opinions, but his are bordering anti-social and 
are downright rude and insulting.

Everyone is welcome to opinions and points-of-view, but having such shoved
in faces at every opportunity is intolerable.
