Apart from Jeffrey acting really quite weird I believe there should be
at least a round of trying to convince him that his views need serious
revision. (Not about copyright, mind you, but about calling others
names, starting ad hominem debates and offtopic rants and considering
himself the leader of the pack.) Good contributors shouldn't be driven
away even if they became obssessed or believe they're gods. Maybe he
needs a vacation (a longer one), not a kickban.

Good contributors have earned the "right" to spend some time on them
before we administratively kick them out. Try not to handle such
things too lightly.

ps: "Take my advices, I never have used them anyway."
