Some people never learn, even when sanctioned for what they are doing. It is the case here. The important point for PR practitioners is never to be sucked in by cranks like this. It can happen. In my career, I've been introduced to a few oddballs who apparently believed in their products and ideas and wanted to retain our services to tell the world about it. Sometimes it takes internal persuasion to resist the urge to sell new business, and on occasion one can be trapped by a well-meaning wingnut. Just because an individual is willing to pay doesn't mean one should take an account. A PR practitioner has a reputation too.
