    Default Trolls who contribute nothing to the site.

    First of all...
    Why do the Moderators continue to keep them around? A member who contributes NOTHING to the site except hostile arguments and badgering, should be cast off back into whatever internet world they came from. They post nothing but continuous garbage threads, and they never respond with logical arguments. We have other trolls who venture here and actually show reasons to stay and argue... San luis, Northern lights, Devilspawn, forgive me trolls if I forgot anyone...But certain clowns do nothing to help this site with moving in the right direction...

    I can see how keeping them around only makes them look more of a fool, because they have nothing better to do with their lives than sign onto a Broncos message forum everyday, and make complete jokes of themselves post after post...For HUNDREDS of posts....but It's getting old, just like a bad joke told over and over again....and I'm getting sick of multiple stupid threads being started and ending EXACTLY the same way each of them do. Someone put a stop to this, please...

    When your garbage can is full, you take it out before it stinks up the kitchen..When your dog shits all over your lawn, you go pick it up, and throw it away...Or the neighbors will start to move away from the shit ridden, garbage filled neighborhood, that smells and looks like shit.
    ANYONE else agree, or care to fill in any of my blanks?
    TIA...

    I don't care personally, but if it's that big of a deal to you, just ignore them.

    Ultimately you choose what threads to look at and not to look at. I look past the bullshit I don't want to read about or don't care about. All message boards are like that. You'll never get rid of that.

    Mainly we don't act in such cases because being stupid and useless is not actually a rules violation, and we don't run off anyone for merely being a dunce. That can of course be changed if thats what the members want, but that leaves an awful lot of subjectivity in Mod/Admin hands. I would like a "Septic Tank" or "Horses Butt" to move some worthless threads to, and its something we've discussed here before. I've even suggested "Arrowhead Stadium" or perhaps even better "The Black Hole' as a dumping ground for this kind of crap.

    Sounds good to me...And banish them to only be able to post and start threads there..I would also assume it would be a op-in forum?

    You'd have to make that an opt-in type of deal, that way for the people who don't want to see that shit when the click "New Posts", they don't have to.

    That's easily done by Mods manually if some poster can't seem to start a single useful thread. I don'yt know the technical V-Bulletin stuff well enough to know if Tned can make that happen

    I've never been the type of poster to go boasting about leaving or exiling myself from the forums on the count of being thin-skinned...but this is supposed to be a refuge and place of logical discussion...At least for me...And the garbage is piling up...to a point where the Vanilla scented sanctuary is turning into garbage island.

    One can only hope Dreads idea is passed and executed.

    I have always been an advocate of restraining poster from starting threads until they reach a certain threshold of posts .. I have believed that back to when I joined mania in 2003 or so..

    but that would take a VOTE of the members to do..
