    See, I understand the mods issues with this sort of thing. The guy is obviously here to troll. His posts are merely for his entertainment and not ours. But, he hasn't broken any rules. When you don't have specific rules for banning criteria you have people making subjective calls. When I was a mod here that didn't go over so well...people complained about that as well. You can't have it both ways. You either have a situation where members feel others are being banned inappropriately or are allowed to stay despite their trolling.

    i'm a big believer in the "greater good" theory...why should one troll be allowed to ruin it for everybody else?
    Don't let him. Just skip over his posts. He is just looking for people to respond to him and even have threads started about him like this one. I would suggest the mods remove this thread. If we ignore him he will go away.

    Because we don't make the rules here. When I was a mod...I was given the ability to ban based on what I believed to be the greater good of the board...ie people who had proven themselves to troll at the Trib, people who made habits of attacking other posters, those here who were only here to create an air of discontent etc.

    The problem? You had one guy...me...making those decisions as John was more involved in the tech side. They were based on my judgement. Members were not included in those decisions. Therefore, when someone was banned...they had no way of appealing that decision. Some felt that certain members were banned unfairly and those members were not given a voice. No matter how I seen it...I think they were right.

    I think these kinds of forums work best when you have specific rules for banning...but I would include one...where if a member receives 5 nominations for banning it goes before the community for a vote...infractions listed...and the member given a voice to defend himself. This gives you the greater good that you speak about.

    Since that doesn't exist...I use the friend or foe function. If I don't want to read a trolls comments I don't have to.

    And for the record, I think the mods here do a terrific job of moderating, keeping the forum organized, and having an even hand. I have no issues with how this place is run.

    I imagine that acting as a moderator is much like running a fantasy football league, i.e., a thankless job that others are very willing to second guess.
