    I've only ever been on two other forums. One worked well, as the mods stepped in at the whiff of trouble. the other one I only visited for a couple of days. The abuse on there was horrific. Never seen anything like it. One woman started it, then couldn't control it. Outta there with 48 hours.

    So I have no idea about these things, but surely something can be done?

    I think Mods are the go. We are all adults here and I am sure no one uses their "powers" to kick people off they don't like! Mods still have to be accountable for their choices and actions of banning...warning etc to Morgan. The last couple of days here have been somewhat disheartening to be honest. The trolls stay because they can. If they are banned immediately...they might return, but it will stop if they are banned again...immediately! Or hopefully they will run out of email addresses

    For me, that is an understatement. Disheartening isn't the word. Just sick of it. I know many ppl say just ignore them and they will go away. i have not seen any trolls/trouble-makers here simply go away from being ignored. They just get more annoying. Hell, they obviously have a lot of time to kill!

    Bugger, cut my finger this morning and my typing sucks!

    I've been a mod before and I have never banned anyone without consulting with other mods and admin first. There is a way to go about these things, you don't just do it as soon as you get peeved or feel like dishing out punishments.
    Being a mod means you have to remain diplomatic and not allow your emotions to control your decision making. I would normally wait a day before making decisions, when I had calmed down and thought about things from every perspective Threads would be temporarily locked or vanish for a few hours and return when things settled.

    The obvious spamming trolls were instantly removed along with their posts and the ones who seemed like trolls were given the benefit of the doubt and unless they broke guidelines they were allowed to stay.

    I think this is a very good idea.

    OO, before you rush off .... just had an email from your Son. He is the nicest, most polite person I have spoken to in a while. Take a bow M'Dear on raising such a wonderful individual.
