Thanks forumdude - I think we all handled him the best way we knew how.  You and the admins have to be commended for being as understanding and patient as you were - if it were me, .... well, I think you know what I would have done a month ago. 

One thing to consider: if someone like him shows up any time soon, check the address they're coming from and compare... unless they're going through a proxy anonymizer (sp?), they'll likely have the same IP.

Here you go, Dude: https://www.facebook.com/groups/duderino/

What FB page are you dudes talking about?  Link pls...

I hate to find any humor in this since it has forumdude upset, but...if Icon is genuinely as angry as he claims to be, why does he keep mixing Lebowski quotes in with his rants? It's almost like he's just trolling all of us. And the last comment about The Jesus made me LOL.

At first I was upset that his real name was posted here, no matter what he was responsible for doing, but if he's going to make this much of an ass of himself on Facebook *under his real name* then it's not really doxing.

He posted some weird thing from Siksastaka about chanting name of lord and being tolerant as trees blah blah blah...
Posted this on my fb wall! I may have to block him if he keep up the shit at me. Fear that if I do he will go and libel me.

If anyone else has any ideas on how he should be handled please reply here. I'm at the end of my tether.

I hate to bring this up since this cat is well out of the proverbial bag for most of you, but if you're going to get involved in Internet forums, you really don't want to attach your real name to your forum account.

Obviously forumdude is known since he's the head honcho, but when you're faced with a situation like this on the Internet, it can get really ugly if the offended party already knows who you are IRL or can easily do a bit of Facebook or Google stalking and figure it out. It sucks because you want to make friends and get to together for a beer or socialize on Facebook, but once someone goes off the deep end over something, everyone is vulnerable.

If this gets out of hand, I would suggest removing the Facebook integration from the board. Don't use the same avatars here and on Facebook and don't comment there on a Dudeism page under your real name.

Dude, your advice to not engage is the best way to go, for sure. You're right, the guy won't listen to reason and unfortunately anything anyone says is fodder for his persecutory delusions. If you do have to talk with him, I'd just stick to the facts like a broken record and not wear yourself out by trying to get him to "come around" to a different view.

To those he's reaching out to as friends beware that he's probably only interested in you because he wants a sounding board for his rage and because he thinks he can recruit you to his way of seeing things -- you're a means to his delusional ends and you, too, will become a persecutor in his eyes once he gets a whiff of any doubts you might have.

I don't mean to sound overly dramatic, Dudes, nor to strip Icon of his humanity, but this guy is unbalanced and needs some serious help. You all are good dudes, but you don't need to be the ones to help him.


I just banned Icon (aka Brian Birmingham) from the Facebook Group he was ranting on. I will continue to ban him from all Dudeism related pages. I would also ask that no one encourage him by engaging with him. All the reason in the world will not have any effect on that guy. I hate to do this but the guy is toxic, unapologetic, relentless and exhausting. I guess after nine years of running this thing we're fortunate to only have one bona fide problem child in our beach community. Well, and Thinking Dude, but Icon makes Thinking Dude look like a harmless kitten.

If anyone else has any ideas on how he should be handled please reply here. I'm at the end of my tether.

Wise words MA...  you obviously have had real world dealings with such people as I have.  Scary shit, yet you can't help but feel for him.  I have to be honest and say I feel a tinge of sadness for him...

The guy has mental health problems. We should all sympathize here. But this aggression will not stand. And this isn't 'Nam. There are rules. And whatever other Lebowski quote illustrates the situation. Ha ha. Four quotes in a row! That's got to be a record. But of course, I'm being sincere, not flippant. Poor guy. It's not easy finding peace when you need the world to bend to your will instead of vice versa.

Thanks for your patience, Dudes.

Jesus, mang! Why the hell would the waste his time doing shit like that? The undude needs to relax; life goes on, man.

Personally, I suspect that he wasn't really a "christian," and was only using that particular religion to fuck with people. But, that's just like my opinion, man.

I dont know what he is in religion sense except maybe confused. He posted this on the fb group and on my wall

"One should chant the holy name of the Lord in a humble state of mind, thinking oneself lower than the straw in the street; one should be more tolerant than a tree, devoid of all sense of false prestige, and ready to offer all respect to others. In such a state of mind one can chant the holy name of the Lord constantly."

(Siksastaka, Verse 3)


Makes no sense to me why, but I am just going to move on. Gonna go bowling on my android.

Holy shit, yeah, Thinking Dude; he damn near single-handedly‎ defined the phrase "take your meds!"

Makes about as much sense as self flagellation.

Nah, I think he truly was what he said he was. Why do I say that?  I've dealt with quite a number of similar whack jobs.  Not that my opinion should define this situation; I'm just a child wondering into the middle of a movie...
