Fairy Dilemma

I need help. I don't know what to do. I am pretty distraiught over the whole thing. Here is the issue: I HAVE ONE MEAN HUMMINGBIRD! If you haven't read the original post about it, see it here. Chubs has NOT gotten any nicer. I used to go through a full feeder worth of nectar in a week (I would fill it on Sundays because it was almost empty) and now I have maybe gone through about a fourth of a feeder in a week. I don't want to reward Chubs' bad behavior. I am thinking maybe I will just take the feeder down. Ryan suggested that we maybe get another feeder (one for Chubs and one for everyone else), but I feel like that is either A. rewarding the bad behavior or B. he will have two feeders that he won't let any of the other hummingbirds eat at. Honestly, he will sit by somewhere (sometimes in the palm tree next to our bedroom window, sometimes in the bushes in the yard below us), wait for another hummingbird to land on the perch and then start chirping and dive-bomb them until they leave. I just don't know what to do. I know some of you may be laughing at me at this point, but I am serious. Don't you remember the guinea pig issue earlier this year?! CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?!
