There are already tools in place for this.

"Consistently low-quality contributions over time" is one of the "canned" suspension reasons that moderators are presented when communicating privately with a user.

If you feel this user's consistently low-quality contributions are harming the site even while diffuse enough to have avoided triggering an auto-ban, consider flagging one of the user's posts with a custom message to moderators asking them to look into the user's contributions as a whole.

This process will likely go the way you seem to think best if there have already been conversations--on your site's meta, particularly--about some of the things you say here:

[These posts] give the site a bad image  

the entire community seems rather tired of them  

a person who constantly peddles snake oil is doing nothing but causing harm

Conversely, if you haven't had those conversations as a site, please consider raising these issues on your site's meta, developing consensus, and linking the offending posts to those discussions before flagging a single user.
