    Is it possible for all of us to agree not to respond to anyone with a Troll moniker?

    I just posted a reply to a troll. I am thinking it is better to not respond, remark or quote trolls. Let their screen name die a lonely death.

    How do we know who is exactly a troll other than the one specific person?

    There are a few running around with the Troll moniker. Perhaps they have been banned.

    I wish I had your fortitude. I try but every now and then they need a bitch slap.

    I dont respond to idiots, that I know of. Pretty much takes care of it.
    Insensitive, rude, non compassionates in life as on board.
    They will go away. Or we ban them. And they do it again, we ban them. its about who has the time. Those of us who work for a living, dont have time for the crap. We come here for comraderie, support, info and a laugh or two.
    Those with no lives, or lives filled with hate and discontent, are the trolls. They should leave the basement, wash off the cheetos, and get a life.

    I see the troll moniker on one member who has over 6000 posts. Is this person really a troll, or is someone just not happy with their opinions?

    TOS ?

    There is nothing to keep that from occurring as TOS is now labeled as a TROLL.

    What is the difference in what TOS posts and Integrity?

    If you don't understand that, there is no use trying to explain it to you.

    Hopefully you are not serious ... if you are, "Bless your heart!"

    I would refer you to post by TOS but ever post of his is monitored and has to be approved before being exposed to the members. Many of his posts have to be edited and quite a few never make it to the board.
    Dude has some issues ... I hope I never meet him.

    The problem I have is going back to the reference in another post about pornography, how people view it differently. All I'm saying is the posts I've seen from both members have their obvious trolling times. Other times both seem like they genuinely are trying to create dialogue. I guess the troll is in the eye of the beholder.

    You're telling us that the crap he spews has been reviewed and has met the seal of approval by a BC mod?

    ​Curious as to what is finally bad enough to say no.

    Why does this site take the time to label trolls but doesn't just ban them?

    ​Because every forum member, even the trolls,are another "hit" on the counter that's measures website traffic and contributes to advertising dollars.

    If you ban a troll or other type of poor behavior members, they just register under a different name.

    If you know who they are, members can react to them accordingly, they can be put in queue, etc.

    There are books and articles on reacting to this behavior if you Google.
