Forum Post: We need a report button for trolls

This forum is becoming unreadable due to the amount of name-calling trolls that are posting now. The "votes" system for comments is getting gamed so that troll comments are MORE likely to appear, completely the opposite effect than it was intended for.

Can we get a report button instead so that the trolls get banned? Disagreement and debate is fine, but too much of it is just name-calling grade school level BS. If these forums are supposed to be productive, the trolls have to go.

God forbid we have a decent forum in place like, IDK, phpBB? That's only been around for over 10 years...

If there was a report button for trolls, it would just be abused by the trolls themselves. Sad but true.

The moderators need to make a much bigger effort to get the conspiracy theorists out of here.

Since OWS is the 99 and rich 1% and trolls would not be rich,, they trolls are part of the 99 and have a voice,,, unless your math is way off.

Different opinions are welcome. Name calling is not.

Holy shit you just went Swayze in Roadhouse.

Guy says, "What if they call my momma a whore?"

Swayze responds, "Is she? ...Just a noun to elicit a prescribed response."

I have a scroll wheel on my mouse for this kind of junk, but it makes the forums nearly unreadable.

There's plenty more:

take a look at this. maybe you will see that you are an idiot and should probably stop protesting because you obviously dont know what you are talking about.

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2011/10/30/nyregion/where-the-one-percent-fit-in-the-hierarchy-of-income.html

the top .1% doesnt even make as much as what you are saying.

first off wealth does not equal income or even actual money. say bill gates has 40 billion dollars, he cant go to the bank and withdraw 40 billion dollars. so you are implying that the government should tax a person on money they dont have.

and the minimum cash income that you are referring to is household income, so yeah, there are a lot of people in the top 1% that make 400k.

No, I don't care if you're against me, you're not even a consideration....you are evidencing yourself as an achievement hater, you can call it what you like, or ally yourself with who you like, but the end result is the same....you are out to punish those who create more than you, and accomplish more than you...... What you should be doing is developing your own talents and abilities and raising yourself up, not wasting your time bringing others down to you level, so you can feel better about your lack of performance......

slammersworldisback needs to be banned. There are easily 100 more posts just like the ones above. Straight up trolling. If I ran this forum this poster would be IP-banned.

I think we are just going to have to ride the storm out for a minute. Don't give up.
