I agree on that. He has some serious problem and needs help.

But what is really worring is that, somehow, he is influencing the behavior of the other members of the group. What happens in CDT is quite strange for a scientifical group.

The people here should recognize that his behavior is not to be imitated, but, on the contrary, he should be helped.

I would suggest some occasional posting to other scientific groups, just to taste the normality. I often visit the word reference forum, very very interesting :
