No trolls allowed

Can we have a troll policy? I'm not talking infringement of free speech, just those people without lives that come in repeatedly insulting people and trying to incite riot.

Can't you just block them? Please?

    One solution I've seen used is the ability for individuals to block certain members. In that sense, it's not infringing on freedom of speech, just granting each individual member the freedom to selectively ignor someone that is annoying them.

    viv, are you suggesting something like the "ignore" feature on irc or using a filter on newsreader software?

    could that work on this type of bulletin board system? would entire threads be blocked or just the posts from one member? i can't see how the second could be accomplished?

    Yes, Rouquinne, that's it! On the old BHC bb you could filter out the posts of whoever you wanted, it didn't eliminate the entire thread.

    I have no idea if it's possible here, just brainstorming.
