Banning disruptive trolls (poll)

Post by MarcosZeitola » November 17th, 2014, 8:06 pm

I had it with Paloatoguy and his BS. He used to be confined to his own threads but lately he's shitting up other threads too with his copy-paste messages and images, gibberish and yelling. He adds literally ZERO to any discussions. I'm all in favor of banning him, rather then waiting for him to disappear. This forum is supposed to be all about freedom of speech but a good gardeners knows when to cut the rotten apples off. No reason to run it like it's some f***ing nanny state. So I made a poll on whether or not to ban him, like we did with Cornfed before. People like PAG or Anatroll make me appreciate Cornfed more, because Cornfed at least made a few decent and insightful posts about modern culture. Even a broken clock hits the right time twice a day, but allowing a disruptive troll to mess up a forum has nothing to do with "free speech".

I am pretty confident the poll results will show that very few people consider this man a valuable addition to these forums. A toddler can copy and paste shit too, throw tantrums and cry, but sometimes toddlers have to be disciplined and this person is NOT a good addition to the forums at all. Getting rid of him would probably improve posting quality, if only just a little bit. He's had his time, he's had his laugh, but the entertainment value has gone away and he just gets on people's nerves now.

There's a thing to be said for allowing controversial views such as racism, and allowing opposing views. I get that. But deliberate trolling, derailing of discussions and messing around should not be allowed to freely happen without consequences. It may be funny for a while, but the novelty wears off and shit gets old. I say we end this and be done with it.

Why don't you just put him on ignore? Add him to your foes list. Then you won't see his posts.

I don't like putting people on ignore, it messes up discussions especially with others quoting them. And your reply is off-topic, as you do not go into his actual behavior and posting history. I know this is a free speech forum, but when did free speech become a thing for trolls?

My God PolloAlto, how low do you want to go? Just get the heck out and put and end to this misery.

You don't want people here to keep you around out of pity, or do you?

It's good to see people ridiculing him more now, as this is all he deserves. That's what trolls are for. He was only ever a problem because anyone believed his bullshit. I am not in favor of banning. If the ignore option is too clunky, then Winston could make a Trashcan/Trollville type of forum or a section of forums like that where trolls can post. That wouldn't limit free speech since they would still be allowed to post. Otherwise, enjoy the free entertainment with someone you can berate endlessly and it is all deserved.

I think there should be a "no" option that doesn't say "he's funny". It should just be "No".

The only reservation I have is that this might be the thin end of the wedge. First he is banned and then before you know it, everyone politically incorrect is a disruptive troll and therefore banned.

The difference is that I am engaging in honest discussion whereas PAG is a bullshit artist.
