Contrary to some opinions here, that is why I believe TROLL ALERTS are useful.

I agree with this statement. At first, I thought the TROLL ALERTS were a complete waste of time.


I'm tired of being told who the troll is, or seeing accusations fly around the board. I'd like to think I'm a reasonable adult, who can decide who to ignore on my own. I don't need any board police telling me who I don't want to listen to.

For the record, the following post (copied in its entirety) somehow managed to receive a "troll alert". I, quite frankly, would rather see more posts like this on the board than any "troll alert":

Hi, I'm new to this board. Starting in January I want to put money away in a high yield savings account for my e-fund. I love my credit union but it just isn't cutting it. I was looking at ING and then was lurking a bit on this board and saw that it seems people also really like State Farm. For a newbie, which is the better deal??? Any horror stories or happy exchanges welcome. Thanks.

It seems to me that the alerters are now the ones spamming the board with useless stuff, rather than the trolls.
