I truly believe Government spam cells were the reason for the Can Spam act of 2003, agents purposely spammed peoples email box with crap which wasn't even marketable to outrage the public so the Government could get the ball rolling on legislating the Interest.
Agent trolls are the next big thing and this so called internet bullying phenomenon that has been popping up on the Nightly news lately. Sure trolls maybe be a hassle to deal with but they are not interrupting our lives if ignored.
Same for this forum, once moderators start silencing.. Who will be considered a troll to be silenced? If you are a person who occupies many forums like I do, you will see that the forums that regulate trolls and spam are the worst form of moderators and post to be on.
It is than given the power to the moderator to decide who is and who isn't a troll and in many cases that I have witness the power is abused.
Personally I don't want a moderator banning me for trolling because it doesn't fit his or hers agenda. Nor do I want to go with the cattle on how I should speak and paraphrase information.
