Commissoner Beware: Dante_Rage_Wolfington-Howling

EDIT 2: Though he has been banned from FA on his Dante account, he has come back on a new account claiming to be Dante's room mate:

Additional Edit: Here are screenshots left on an artist's page through this new account. The artist is one that Dante harassed in the past, and they saw through the new account right away. As you can see, the typing and language are very, very like Dante's.

EDIT: Updated with his new FA account, replaced the last screen-shot with a more readable version.

WHO:
Dante_Rage_Wolftington-Howling

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/danteragewolfington-howling/ (abandoned)

WHAT: Harassment, threats, and attempts at free art

WHEN: They first commented on my free pantsu icon raffle, on May 17th. He has left his FA account and has promised not to contact me since July 3rd.

PROOF: I will put with the explanation, to hopefully help you follow better.

EXPLAIN: For the past few months, Dante has been annoying me. He was a bit annoying during my pantsu icon raffle, where he kept mentioning that his birthday was soon after the raffle ended.

Him entering:

Comment on raffle reminder:

I personally found his continuous mention of his birthday to be sort of a pressure, even if he didn't intend. I just assume most people wouldn't mention it at all if they didn't want to put pressure on the artist.

May 31st, after the raffle had ended, he noted me. I was completely confused at first at what he was asking for, but after clarification, he was breaking one of the rules of my TOS: I must be paid before work. Here he's trying to order a commission and promising to pay later because right now he doesn't have a paypal:

I don't have screen shots of this because the shout got bumped off my page (I only felt the need to make this article after tonight, so all caps are recent), but in it he asked if he could commission me for a pantsu icon, even though they were journal only. The fact that he was aware of it, and wanted one even though he had no paypal, really stung me bad.

July 19th, after I had answered someone else's question about my future pricing on reference sheets, he comes to the deluxe reference sheet I did for my fursona and commented:

I put him on my blacklist then. He's the first and hopefully the last.

June 22nd, he came to my page and apologized. I accepted, and he then asked what being on the blacklist is (I only have a small portion of this, as shouts got bumped off):

Then, on June 28th, he came back to my page and asked to get off the blacklist again:

I replied "No.", but he wiped his shouts before I could grab it. But at this point I was more than fed up with his whining.

Today, July 3rd, I posted a journal opening up my pantsu icons again. He came in, whining about how he wanted one but he was on the blacklist. Then he tried to get someone to commission me for him, which I did not want:

He sent me a note, and well...Here's the notes (long read):

After this I was absolutely stunned, and felt making an A_B post was necessary so other's wouldn't have trouble with him as well. But I was unaware of weather I had to have actual, money exchanging business to post him on here (I couldn't really find anything about it on here, sorry if it was somewhere and I didn't realize) so I made a journal on FA asking for advice. Here's how the journal basically went (black boxes used to hide screenames and conversations not relevant to the situation, also screenshot thanks to someone on FA. Journal is also deleted as of now, but I have un-censored screenshot still saved):

And it ended there. He wiped his account, and I'm making this post. I hope people can watch out for him, because this was not the best experience.
