where have I given any indication that I wish to discuss anything with him
Just for fun, I did a couple of searches here in this forum.
RedBV has posted to slackerx 78 times, and to ramseylurker 51 times.
I didn't bother to search for how many times he's mentioned me and my cousins, but there have been a few of those, also.
As for his link above, I skimmed that particular thread, and found that RedBV called BS "my dear Nazi simpathizer" or similar in post numbers 68, 73, 74, 76 (in a post to slacker), 93, 99, 118 (three times), 119, 219, 264, 265, 280, 303, 347, 526, 529, 533, and 542. (I may have missed a few.) And that's just in a single thread that was chosen by him to illustrate the problem.
Now, just to add a little color to my post...

"Gracias a diós y nuestro señor salvador, fue el diablo el que me enseñó a tocar violin."
"Thanks to God and our Lord Savior, it was the devil who taught me how to play the violin"
A member of another forum recommended some forums. I am checking them out. I feel for you as a single mod. With a background as a moderator, and with a military background, may I suggest a few rules for you to follow that will make your life as a mod more pleasant?
Don't explain or argue. Never, never, ever.
First offense just post, "That's one, read the start page."
Second offense, just post, "That's two. there won't be a third."
Third offense, just bring the hammer down, and post nothing.
IMHO, don't modify those simple rules until you have a year on the job.
