I can handle someone not saying "thanks" when they've been helped, but 
this kid is outright abusive.  He consistently demands help, and if it 
doesn't work the first time -- with zero effort on his part -- he slings 

Having an op in the channel would really help.

In the short term, I'd guess this kid would do whatever he could to 
circumvent the block to cause trouble.  An op or two in the channel 
could work to keep him out, regardless of which host or nick he uses.

This is also a strong reminder for everyone to register their nick with 
freenode, and to identify themselves when logging in.  It's just a 
matter of time before someone like mindamp appropriates the nick of a 
regular and starts talking trash in the channel.
