5. I've seen those threads...
And I've got most of the threads (and the people in question) on ignore now.
The ones that I don't have on ignore eventually make it there.

There's no changing their minds.
None whatsoever.

And if you "gang up" on them, you'd most likely get banned from DU.
The best thing to do is ignore their posts, either by clicking on ignore, or by ignoring the whole threads. Anyone who tell you to "twiddle your joystick", well, you should click "Alert" on them. (I consider that an insult. I don't know how the Mods will consider it, though...)

Like I said, you can't change their minds.
