As moderator:
When someone disrupts a thread please do 2 things.

Anyone that watches CSI or any Police Drama knows that anyone that tracks up the crime scene causes lots of trouble.

Moderators can delete/move disruptive posts.
Moderators can ban a poster from replying to thread after warning.


Remedial actions are hard to perform with a bunch of posts quoting the disruptive person and posters tracking all over the evidence. Remedial actions take time and effort. Moderators have to document their actions. Closing a thread is much simpler than salvaging one with lots of messy posts.


Personally I like salvaging threads, but I cannot with there are a lot bickering posts from posters that know/suspect they are bickering with a troll.

If you feel that a thread is worth continuing. please remember those divine words of wisdom from the ancient internet sages.

For goodness sakes, don't feed the ~@#$%^&*!!! trolls.


It is hard to ignore trolls, but it is enlightened.

Thank you for your kind attention.
