Could we start locking new 'income trust' threads and try to keep the discussion contained to just one thread? The current situation is reminiscent of the issues we had with the medpot guys who kept bringing pot legalization into every discussion...

Edit: And just out of curiosity, do the forums have any sock-puppetry detection measures in place?

Seems the mods are doing a pretty good job with the trolls, after the recent flurry of troll activity. Number one rule, don't engage the trolls. Do not reply to their posts, do not acknowledge their presence. The only way to fight a troll attack is to ignore every post, and every troll.

Anything else is giving the candy bar to the child throwing a tantrum.

Here is some good information.

Playtime Trolls
Playtime trolls are relatively easy to spot, but they may not be apparent to the naive user. There isn't a single set of characteristics that applies to playtime trolls, but you can look for some or all of the following signs:

a lack of buy-in to the list philosophy or values
generally low level of activity, with sudden spurts of interaction - or perhaps a new persona that has strong opinions on controversial subjects
a mixture of friendly posts with a confrontational style of interaction
the use of provocative language and sweeping generalisations about certain topics or categories of people
a lack of in-depth understanding of the topic
a lack of personal information
a lack of a genuinely unique perspective on the topic
a lack of humour
restarting topics that have already been done
use of language that encourages the dialogue to enter topics that are controversial and likely to upset some team members
the use of attention-seeking gimmick (e.g.: "I was once exploited by an XYZ")
they follow up their own articles if the group doesn't respond to their posts
inconsistencies in the style and nature of the post and any proclaimed information (e.g.: claiming to be a child but writing with an adult style; claiming to be adult, but writing with a childish grammatical construction).
also note that trolls often seem to use free email services (such as hotmail.com) or have email addresses ending in .edu. However, trolls could be virtually anyone, and the email address is no guide as to whether the persona is a bona fide user or not.

To counteract playtime trolls, the best action is to ignore them. If you are convinced they are trolls, then you can advise the list manager. However, if other group members respond to the suspected troll's posts, then you may have to consider some of the responses outlined for tactical or strategic trolls.

Any of that sound familiar?
