I'm not entirely sure that I've got this in the right forum, but...
Perhaps you've heard of Judge Floro, a former judge in the Philippines. He was removed from the bench because he was found to "suffer from psychosis that impaired his judgement". He believes that he has psychic powers and claims to communicate regularly with three "mystic dwarfs" whom he consulted in court when he was still a judge. In addition to his law degree. he holds a masters in philosophy and theology.
Pretty irrational and, in some sense, religious, eh? But that's not why I'm posting this. I have reason to believe that this same person is posting on my forum at Graveyard of the Gods. I think he also posts on a number of other forums but I don't expect that most of them have as extreme an anti-censorship policy as GOTG does. I'm not certain that it's really him but he claims to be the real Judge Floro , his posts seem utterly sincere, and his IPs resolve to the Philippines. It could be an elaborate hoax, of course, or some kind of deep satire but I've not yet seen anything that I think should tip me off to that. I realize that I could be wrong but I think it's him.
He posts regularly for a while, then he disappears, then he comes back for a while, then disappears...
And that's not why I'm posting, either. Rather, it's to ask this: what would you do?
So far, I've been humoring him. If this really is him, it seems unlikely to me that my trying to reason him out of his psychosis (through an Internet forum, no less) is likely to be of any benefit to anyone. I'm not going to ban him from the forum because we simply do not do that there. I could simply ignore him, of course, but there is some entertainment value in all this. If nothing else, it's interesting. And tragic. And funny. (I used to live with a roommate who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia so I'm not freaked out by people who have mental illnesses.)
Given that preventing him from posting is not an option, what would you do? Converse with him? Ignore him? Argue with him? What?
If any of you want to take a look (no registration required), his most recent thread is here.
Reality is the graveyard of the gods.
