This matter is before the court on the plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis. The plaintiff submitted such application on April 16, 2015. Along with his application to proceed in forma pauperis, the plaintiff submitted a complaint and several other documents. There is no doubt that 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g), commonly referred to as the "three strikes" provision, denies the plaintiff the advantages of proceeding in forma pauperis. See, e.g., Flores v.
