I wish we can do internet law suits. I'd like to see a lawyer knock on his door to serve him an order.

If he acts in real life the way he does online it won't be lawyers knocking on his door it will be the cops or worse.

Tried to get past the front page without laughing. Didn't work.

Although I've never shared your enthusiasm for keeping IMFDB's gun images exclusive, this is one case where I definitely agree with you. I don't care if he wants to start his own pathetic Wiki to compete with ours, but I sure as hell don't want him using our images and claiming they're his, while whining about what fascists we are. After all, it's not like he doesn't know exactly where the images come from. Whereas many of the people who have used our gun pics without permission most likely just found them on a quick Google search and weren't aware of our policy regarding their use.

More likely, the men in white coats.

Don't worry, I promise that MPM and the rest of us still love you guys. Even though you're all gun-hating, monarchy-worshiping pussies. :P

But seriously, I have seen a couple of British users who have given us lots of problems. I remember I once asked a user (whose profile identified his location as the U.K.) not to upload pics of guns we already had. He responded to me with insults and profanity, and after I temp-banned him, he used another IP to vandalize my talk page. As for Moviemaster himself, when MPM explained our policy on images to him, he responded with an anti-American tirade. I realize that these anecdotes hardly say anything about English IMFDB users in general, but it is just a little weird.

Of course, some of our most annoying forum trolls (PersonOfInterest, BurtReynoldsMoustache, Sillybunz, etc.) have been Americans.

It's basically a scaled-up version of general childish dislike of any kind of authority; at a certain age, any authority figure is automatically stupid and terrible, from your older siblings, parents and teachers to the government. Obviously for Americans that's where the buck stops, but for kids from other countries they can mindlessly dislike America because it's a Big Authority Figure Nation (TM).

So basically it's the same reason he doesn't get along with other users, write properly or understand the concept of following rules.

In all fairness to you Brits, childish and mindless disdain for the U.S. government is pretty common over here (and it's not limited to any age group). It's way too common amongst both Libertarians, with all of its armchair Minutemen who spout mindless pseudo-aphorisms about abuses of power, and leftist undergrads whose views of the U.S. government come from their professors and Rage Against The Machine lyrics. The only difference between them and the aforementioned anti-American Brits is that the latter have a far less nuanced understanding of American civil society.

MPM, I know this might be a tedious task, since you have literally hundreds of images from your own armory on this site, but have you ever considered reuploading versions of them with an IMFDB watermark like this one of an M9 pistol?
