    rather/prefer she stop/stopped

    He would rather / prefer that she stop / stopped calling him "Idiot".

    Can I use either 'rather' or 'prefer'?

    Is it 'stop' or 'stopped'?

    Many thanks.

    Can I use either 'rather' or 'prefer'? I would use "prefer", especially with the presence of "that".
    Is it 'stop' or 'stopped'? I think there is no good reason to use the past tense. Use "stop".

    Many thanks.
