Troll infestation---


We have a troll---Lots of smutty posts and rude nonsense answers--posted under a lot of different names.

Members---If you see signs of a troll---please hit the report button ( red dot !)

We have been swinging them around over our heads and throwing them over the garden fence---

It's fun--but is disturbing to new members who have never seen a troll before.

How about a troll hunting award? I would be even more diligent if you promised me an impressive looking certificate or something.

I don't need posse status or no stinkin badges! "Via con dios!" trolls!

I try to report them almost every morning( since I seem to be the only one up at the un godly hours I wake up) but 9 times out of 10 it will not go through.

Just curious. I think all I have found have newbie status. Isn't there a way for your system to catch them by ISP address rather than username?

By the way, the latest one I found had O'Mike as a username! I had to do a double take and then giggle even though it is not that funny.

What happens if several of us hit the red dot at the same time? Who gets the point?

If several people hit he red button at once---we have them listed in chronological order---

I think a gold Deputy star would be a good prize--

Let me see who has the keys to the prize closet.

Is it okay if I just report every post that everybody makes? I'm bound to get lucky and get a troll now and then, right?

I’m thinking a cheepo window air conditioner would be a better prize.

It’s 106 right now and I could defiantly use another one.

How many times do I need to hit the button???
