Fellow Internet researchers,

Lachlan Brown is a troll. 

The solution to how to deal with a troll's disruptive effects is 
not simple -- both ignoring him and restricting his access via 
moderation or other means have their drawbacks. If anyone is 
interested, I've just co-authored a paper analyzing a case of 
trolling that bears similarities to the one currently taking 
place on this list. It's under review for publication, but I'd
be happy to send a pre-publication copy to anyone who emails
