What do the "troll hunters" do? Nothing, really. The trolls tend to bring themselves to the attention of the mods, and the mods and staff are the only ones with the power to ban.

We could have little skulls added under our avitars for each one we slay.

I don't know milsurp's pattern, but I can pretty much spot clean_cut or a copycat troll.

That's because they can't do anything really. You call out a troll, you end up getting a warning and the troll skates.

This board really needs a feature like free republic - a 'report abuse' button on each post to directly draw attention to the troll. Around there trolls don't last long and the board runs a lot smoother because of it.

Otherwise they tend to survive in the shadows while they build up their post count. They may get reported to random mods, but unless one mod establishes a record of a specific troll, it usually survives for a long time, shitting on the board.

A treasure chest like the one at the dentist office.

Do we have to submit the whole carcass or will just the ears do?

What's that?



The only "treasure chest" at my dentist's office is attached to the front of his cute assistant, and I am definitely not allowed to play with it.

Not much difference between the trolls and troll hunters.

Both seem to enjoy stiring shit up.

A ''report user'' button would be nice in some situations. All one has to do is IM a Mod i suppose.
Link Posted: 4/16/2006 10:26:09 AM EST
Yes.

Trolls are annoying, bandwidth wasting, little weener heads.

But there's the problem of finding a mod that's actually online, and then the reports can get spread out between - what, 6 mods?

What the fuck is a troll
Link Posted: 4/16/2006 10:28:03 AM EST
No. The only thing worse than trolls are the self appointed "troll hunters" who are the biggest trolls of all. Ahem...SgtAR15..ahem.

here's a thought, ignore them and they go away.



The advice is often given, but it never works. They just turn up the volume and intensity until they get attention.

Actually the troll hunters are more annoying since they attract more trolls.

At least we do not ban them in 30 seconds, like some OTHER sites...

They do have a right to express their opinions, and we have the right to tell them where to stick them...
Link Posted: 4/16/2006 10:58:53 AM EST
the problem with a bounty for trolls is that people dont know the difference between a troll, and someone they don't agree with. there are plenty of threads where a fight breaks out, both sides accuse the other of being a troll, even when neither one is.

that said, i think team members should be able to vote on people. each person gets a rating based on the voting by the team membership, and if you fall below a certain rating your name is brought to the attention of the mods.

if you're not a team member you don't get to say shit.

How hard is it?
If a troll, or troll-hunter gets zero reaction to their posts,
they go away to find action elsewhere.
Just ignore them. 100% ignore them.
