Difficult persons often shared certain behaviour that deviates from common standards. This is not about the topics of their discussions or aggressive style, this is obvious and there are other pages that talk about that. There are subtle elements of style, that can act as a warning signals to the online community. Don't start fighting, the WarningSignals are just indicators that something may be wrong. Be more careful, think twice about your words, read between the lines. WarningSignals can just be habits of individual style or happen accidentally.

Deviation from CommunityExpectations.

Appeals to ego (theirs or ours):

Excessive energy

Power plays

Deviations seem to have the meaning to set the person apart from the community, to draw a line, to show to be different.

A single signal means little, but three or more of these signals add up to a serious warning.
