Trolling has become an acceptable alternative lifestyle.

The comment was made the other day about every site having this troll problem...not so! Other sites have members with strong opinions, but they seldom reach the troll level that we see here.

I won't name the other site(s) that I'm thinking of so they won't become infested by trolls. But, on those other sites there are concerned members who take initiative and report such violations of the site policies. The moderators don't accept such obvious violations. They have the power to immediately delete such nonsense and I don't mean just moving it to a DUMP. Violating ones "right to free speech" isn't an issue on those sites. Each member agrees to behave in a certain manner by becoming a member.

I know that this is eventually supposed to happen here, but in the meantime, butt monkeys like this troll will infest and inhabit this site.

The DUMP and even the LOUNGE are just inviting the trolls, IMO.

Our moderators have the same capabilities. However each only has privileges for the forum they are assigned to moderate. I could have taken care of the problem much earlier if he were posting in the body /exterior forum but he wasn't . Our moderators for the lounge haven't been on this morning.

That's good to know that the moderators have that power entitled to them ...finally...but, how effective is that power if they are limited to only their forums?

When a member reports a post to a moderator, ALL moderators should get the same message and be able to take appropriate action whether it's their forum or not.
We need a centralized dispatch center for troll reports!
