That will be the neat trick. Perhaps a link to a class on non angry self expression would benfit many of our the members at the other board

I can think of four people I would completely ban. There are others who I would put on a " post review" 'status for a period of time. It's difficult to know who those people are unless they use the same screen name. I guess their email address used to register at the other site could be tagged.

The direction of tPF is shifting, doubt I'm going back at any point.

I imagine think that the mods there think things will cool off shortly after the election is over.

Who is going to determine who those "known trolls" are?


On a board with lots of members I use the ignore feature on people who act like dicks. I don't care what their political persuasion is. Or if all they do post lol or tissue? On a smaller forum I'd just run them off.

I agree. The basic concept is we can be decent with each other even when we don't agree. Life is too short to be in attack mode all the time.

I don't even use the ignore feature - I learn how to selectively read. I successful forget certain people exist because I programmed myself to just scroll past their posts. It works pretty well.

If Exo showed up, I would assume that there would be no disagreements about banning him.


We need a few punching bags, keep that in mind.

Then you are ignoring them without using the "feature." Its even faster if they are on ignore. I don't use it just because I don't agree with them. I'm on the right side of the political spectrum and there are a hell of a lot of people on the left side that don't act like dicks or just post silly stuff. I have about as many on the right side on ignore as I do on the left and there aren't really that many people who I put on ignore. I only use it on boards with a lot of members.
