I say, let the trolls post here but don't give them control of the threads. Stay on topic and this board will remain relevant and interesting. Let them drag you (us) into PA and we will be back at the Campfire looking at a bunch of grey.


That is usually the difficult part since some trolls are quite adept at the "Non Sequiter", the "Red Herring", the "Strawman", and the "Implied insult" along with "Word Stuffing", "Shifting Definitions", and "High Horse Hooey Bombardment".


Another method the board should encourage is reccing good well written and thoguhtful posts, maybe reccing good wit and sarcastic comments, and not reccing or even responding to ad homenum (sp?) insults and attacks.

I know....a lot to ask of folks....yet a goal.
