They seem to come out of nowhere, but are more and more on this board...

Shouldn't we create a system to prevent them for posting, or at least to create threads ?

Something like only authorize "older" posters to create new threads, I know this wouldn't be easy to do, but it would still spare us all these stupid threads pattyfan, jas 123 or other seles, davenport have been creating lately...

Well, I'm sure that would be hard, but how are we meant to know who are trolls or not. We need to wait a while to figure out for sure if they are trolls or not...

Every board has its share of trolls and it helps not to feed them by arguing when you know they're only doing it to annoy you.

Unsurprisingly they disappear more swiftly after appropriate use of the report post function and a bit of patience.

While we are at it, let's also ignore people who try to control the postings of other people on the board.!.!.!.

Honestly, trolls are half the fun of posting here, some are very funny!

Half the hilarity of trolls is how people fall into the traps each. and. every. time.

There's more than a grain of truth here. I'm guilty of falling into those traps sometimes, and every time I know I'm doing it! A really good troll knows how to push just the right buttons.

WTAWorld is liek troll central. It wouldn't be the same without them. Most of the trolls haven't been banned anyways.;)

Actually some of those people don't fall into the traps. They invite themselves in because trolls are more appealing to them than your run-of-the-mill WTAWorld poster.

Some trolls are fun.

Some are annoying.

I prefer that they give me the power to decide which to ban and which to idolize.

Erm...

Just don't respond to their threads. It's really really easy, I'm telling you. You just don't fucking click them. Or in the case of a regular post, don't press that little button on the bottom right hand side of the post box marked "quote". Just...don't click it and you're problems are over!

I like trolls, they break up monotony. But you can do whatever you want.

When someone posts things that a majority of people don't like they are branded "trolls"
