Users attacking other users in posts - wich from of abuse RRS feed

  • Question

  • I and (imho) other users have been having trouble with one user attacking, criticising or (d)evaluating other users. Not the content of thier post, the user themself.

    The observed actions include:

    - saying the user "is only posting noise"

    - declaring the users posts to be "BS".

    There are other, more subtle actions where I can't quite figure out wich part feels offensive to me.
    For me it feels like he is trolling, but he actually seems to have some knowledge (when he isn't attacking others) and even a decent score (in the thousands) - so he isn't like the usual 0 point troll.

    He does usually post something remotely relevant to the thread - at least one 1/4 of it - so I can't exactly mark it as Spam or entirely unrelated. But he is attacking me and some other Forum users in Person.

    So wich form of abuse should I mark it?

  • I would vote for either "Off topic/irrelevant" or possibly "Other terms of use or code of conduct violation".
