An individual that the late Hunter Thompson would certainly call a relentless reprobate.

Interesting, however probably fairly accurate summation about Mary Hayashi regarding the description as reprobate. If one looks at the meaning and associated synonyms, one need only pick their favorite!
REPROBATE - an unprincipled person (often used humorously or affectionately).
synonyms: rogue, rascal, scoundrel, miscreant, good-for-nothing, villain, wretch, rake, degenerate, libertine, debauchee;

Yes, and what a bonus that we can assign to this person all these synonyms without even having to refer to her race or ethnicity.

I doubt very much Hunter S. Thompson would have called Hayashi a "relentless repropate." He may, however, have called a person who generates this kind of thread a "relentless reprobate."
