I will check your posts. Trolls go after the top enemies most.

Thank you. Somehow those trolls work by yelling elsewhere to silence many things in this forums.

A few of them are nutty, they have multiple accounts and swarm at once to suppress posts.

Average posts get -1 or 0 rating on average by trolls, which represents that 1 or 2 trolls disliked your post. Good posts usually get +1 +2 +3 which represents that the same 1 or 2 trolls down voted it and 2, 3 or 4 people liked it. Very good posts usually get +4 and more.

I noticed some of you posts are still +1 trough, other posts were raised up in front of yours. Don't worry, it's all normal considering how many trolls are here.

Trolls target certain individuals more than others. Just read some lower comments, rating 0 or lower, they are among the best.

I gave a couple of points here to help, the board continues to get flooded with garbage I always have 0-1 point, yet I seem to get more positive responses. The trolls are flooding board with crap. We need to work together here despite some of our differences. The debate is fun, and as we hash things out in this public town hall like forum, the trolls scroll through and de-rate, I see it when I go back to same posts to send replies. I have yet to de-rate anyone except the obvious trouble makers. Lets help each other keep the viable posts at the top. Yesterday, there were several, like italian food recipes, ads, etc bogus issues that were obvious anti-semite/racist, and they are always at the top with few comments. I wish I was an admin on here , I would clean things up quick...

hidden, upon re-review of the posts, and removed YOU from the spam alert. I am sorry, you got grouped in; The whole post was the culprit, I saw your link in there, and in error - I grouped you in. I humbly apologize, I accept full responsibility for this error. - I was so fed up as this has been going on all week. hidden you were right pointing this out, and thank you for doing so. I would have never caught it if you didn't link "mistakes" You can go back to the page, and verify you are no longer grouped in the violation, only smartenough on that post...SPAM ALERT corrected, I am sorry. I will be more cautious before executing the script next time...

After all I am only human, and therefore sometimes capable of mistakes...Take care.

No , I don't mean authoritarian, I mean get rid of the spam, and the posts that are like "goto this site to see Ron Lawl" naked , etc. there is a lot of crap that appears on here, maybe you missed some. There also have been f-bombs, etc in the titles, thats the crap that needs to go...The outright crap.....I never get any points, and any that I did get some time back are in negative last I checked, despite the fact that 5 or 6 were there and about 4 responses. Then -5 and some troll responses. The trolls create more accounts and vote themselves up.

Now do something!!!

I don't see how biased la times article can help with trolls.

The would've say that 30 tons of personal property have been confiscated from evicted protesters and thrown to the landfill and now they are wasting city budget, that they don't have, looking for dangerous chemicals that could be left by peaceful protesters.
