No. It should just get locked/deleted, and the offending posters banned (not a perfect solution as it doesn't get rid of the truly dedicated, but it should help). Locking all their threads is surely no more effort than moving them to another forum.
It would be different if we had people who wanted to discuss "fringe" or "flaky" science, but we don't. We have one or two posters who randomly vomit crap into the form, then return later to vomit even more crap. There isn't even an attempt at having a discussion, and the lack of sentences, variable definitions, or any real argument whatsoever precludes there ever being a discussion.
