Not much more than reporting you to a moderator/administrator and let them deal with it.

This is a serious forum, where we dont call people names in a discussion.
At least I dont sink that low, and I dont tollerate that others offend me!

or put some metholated spirits on a cotton bud & go with that, it evaporates so theres no chance of anything (wd40) staying in there and collecting more dust when the port isnt in use.. when i used to work in a guitar store & the repairee guitar's jacks were crackling, we'd get some soft sandpaper, put it round a stick and polish it up with that..

I almost fell out of my chair when I read WD40. Isopropyl alcohol should do the job, it cleans anything electronic contact I need it to (buttons, etc,) when they get dirty.
