Sure. People violating the TOS of Asylum should be warned then banned. But let's face it these measures are useless against serial trolls and attention whores. Absolutely nothing can prevent them from registering new accounts, using a proxy to bypass an IP ban, and repeat history again and again.

The only semi-efficient way would be to have some form user rating, and an option for the Mad Scientists to mark a user as an alias of another one and make them share the same rating, maybe with a penalty. But that's more work, for little added value as the signal to noise ratio is quite good. The vast majority of users do behave and manage to ignore the odd ones.

You're right about banning. The silent treatment might be the best recourse.

I'm sure TP had good reasons and it is his decision, however I find it goes a little too far when one poster threatens another one.



Funny.

I said the same thing *many* years ago.

In regard to the same poster, even.
Imagine that.

I decided to forfeit my admin status when the Doc had no problem with the threats and other such behavior...


However, I think the only actual solution at this point comes down to one simple thing: don't feed the trolls.
The only way this poster gets anywhere is by people giving him attention. And like a young child, it does not matter whether the attention is positive or negative. He will take whatever route gets him the most attention, which is clearly negative in this case.

Ignore, ignore, ignore.
*Every* time.

And there will be no problem.
