comment How to deal with closed-minded rule lawyering players
@mxyzplk I don't think it's a duplicate, because that second question's key issue involved house rules, and the top few answers are centered around the house rule component. The problem here isn't that the DM created house rules that the player doesn't like, it's that the player appears to argue against any ruling, even if it's backed up by the book or a prior ruling.

comment How can I make an overweight character?
@mxyzplk I took OP's mention of investigating the BoVD and the PHB weight section to mean they wanted to know about any potential mechanical effects. I agree, I'd prefer OP to chime in, but wanted to put in a model for what we mean by "clarify your specific problem".

comment How do I help my group stop derailing our GM’s set-piece battles?
+1 for "the GM needs to change how he is planning." This is a GM problem, not a player problem, and it's on the GM to not make setpieces that can be undone by a completely reasonable action by the players.

comment How do I deal with aggressive/disrespectful criticism?
+1; this is solid advice. @JDR I'd also suggest looking through the problem-players tag, in particular these three questions as they all touch on possible motivations for this guy's behavior and provide more advice on dealing with different aspects of the situation.
