Troll indicator 1 - His username o54m4 = Osama (I only noticed once pointed out to me). Troll indicator 2 - His rep graph and -rep points(Although I understand this could be put down to 'ganging-up'. Troll indicator 3 - His action- he is trying to post his own ccc and league table (see todays post) whilst Dave is away. I know what your saying, that anyone can post what they like, but he is doing it to Troll Dave and everyone else who participates in the CCC. Troll indicator 4 - In the past when somebody has (deservedly) 1-voted him he has responded by randomly 1-voting as many people as he can.(This also helps explain why his posts now get a large share of 1-votes).
I agree with what you are saying regarding the 'ganging-up' that happens in the Lounge, and it would be great to see this eradicated, but in this case I think you are stan ding up for a Troll. I have given him the benefit of the doubt in the past, but his trolling has got progressively worse.
Well Dalek Dake's a bit of a troll too. So it's not as if trolls are banned from the Lounge.
When this guy's actually trolling or being abusive, it makes sense to down vote him and taunt him. But when he's making a normal thread, people should leave him alone. Judge a thread by its content and not by who posted it.
That's just my opinion though, and unfortunately not many of the present-day loungers agree with me. The ones that do agree with me don't even post here anymore.

I do agree with this point which is why when I noticed it was him down-voting people a long time before anyone else noticed it I didn't say anything. But unfortunately he is a long way down the road to Trollville and it won't be long before his account is deleted.
CCC is acknowledged by all here (except you, obviously) to be the sole prerogative of Dalek Dave[^], and in his absence, his chosen deputy, which this week is Pompeyboy3[^]. So lots of CP members are now downvoting you for muscling in where you should not be. By all means start your own puzzles but do try something original.
