Postings by  (Mark Robert Thorson) are sufficiently
extreme that no one with any sense could possibly believe them.  I think
his postings serve the useful purpose of persuading anyone who reads them
that some people oppose cryonics for reasons that are (very) clearly
emotional.  The next time they hear someone arguing that cryonics is either
technically infeasible or undesirable, they will be more inclined to
believe such opinions are based on emotion.

In addition, his postings provide an opportunity to counter-post.  Almost
any response will look calm and reasoned by comparison, and can serve to
educate people about basic issues.
