Meh... they keep things interesting. They're mostly just starved for attention, ignore them and they go away (just don't ignore this one please)

I don't really count you as a troll.

To me, troll is someone who is openly offensive and hostile online.

Although, that isn't the right definition. But that's what I mean by 'troll'.

- Have speciialized banning debates if you reach a certain threshold of negative reports have a vote on whether they're banned

- Ban by IP so they can't get back in

They can change their IP/TPS address with no problem at all.

When we ban, we ban the individual and in some cases the IP. IP as noted does not work as well as you would think.

There isn't really anything we can do. Andy could ban him from the site, but there isn't anything stopping him from creating another profile.

Well there is nothing we can do really unless some of the troll accouts say who the really are on this site. Or they could be new.

Who knows?

Psychoanalysis usually works.

How? There is not much you can learn about a troll other than their texts.

There really is, the basics being

Homophobia: they're gay

Banning people: they're shy and reclusive, afraid of being wrong, cowards.

Sexism: had bad experiences of the opposite sex/ cultural tradition- so can't question their way of thinking.

et.c, et.c...

Nothing, they are just trolls, nothing to say but cry and whine.

Most come and go as well, they go faster if ignored. Basically, JoeCalavry is a good persistent troll.
