    but that would take a VOTE of the members to do..
    Of course, that could also lead to a troll posting their idiocy in 100 threads to get to the threshold...

    There is no foolproof method - and some members enjoy slapping around a few adolescent halfwits from time to time, so its not always clear cut that they should in all cases be thrown out.

    yes but it might also keep them from coming here to be stupid also.. not worth posting 1000 posts (an arbitrary number) to start a thread.. and if that is all they are doing it then becomes Spam and we nuke them that way..

    most knuckle heads are like water they seek the easiest path if it is not here then they move on..

    Got to remember folks we all started as virgins as mods and ADMIN and have only been learning for 20 months or so..


    so mistakes have been made and and a few more will be..

    Bannishing stupidity to a specific section (septic, etc, etc) and keeping them there would do wonders...I bet they would leave after a certain amount of time when people start to ignore and forget about them...Also threads that go completely downhill can also be merged there...win win situation...Can we start a vote or a poll thread ASAP?

    Believe it or not the preseason starts in less than 3 months...Lots of BS Mcdaniels and Orton threads will probably be started in anger, and need merging...Just a thought

    "Contribute Nothing" is an objective term. Some could say I've contributed nothing with this post.

    Hot Dogs and Chli Fries. That is all.

    If a person has 500+ posts saying Hotdog and chili fries...Over and over again...They should be banned as well.

    Trolling isn't enforced here, just get used to it.

    OH, and definitely don't respond to the trolls...

    Because if we do nothing, they go away...

    That's because there is no such thing as "trolling" in the CofC. As long as that remains the case it won't be enforced or sanctioned as such. Personal Attacks? Yep. Baiting/Flaming? Yep. Spam? Yep. Nudity/obscenity/illegal activity? Yep. Being dumb and pointless? Perfectly allowed, so there is nothing there to enforce.

    I don't think we need one of those here.

    The smack forum is the smack forum. If you think threads are garbage, don't respond is what I say

    But I don't really venture outside the smack forum, so if there are garbage threads elsewhere on the site this may be a idea to discuss...

    I don't I see where the garbage is piling up anywhere except for smack. Our current resident troll has actually been relevant and had decent (wrong, but decent) posts the few times he's ventured into Broncos Talk.

    It sounds like your problem is in the Smack Forum and the multitude of threads that all devolve into the same topic. Am I understanding this correctly? Because those threads definitely belong in Smack and I'm not sure why they would be moved even if we did have a Septic Tank.

    Maybe we should make the smack forums opt-in. I personally don't care, because I like to watch trolls make complete fools of themselves. Especially when they actually make a descent point, then completely ruin any presumption of intelligence by making a totally assinine statement like "John Elway is overrated".
