What we need is an EASY Button. Every day, especialy early morning, we are invaded by trolls, especialy on the local boards who's only purpose is to sign up and disrupt. Even though we FReepmail the mods about them sometimes it takes hours to get them removed. Teddy WAlmat and the many variations of thet name and many other. It would be nice to have an alarm button where we could just flush these guys down the old tube in short order.

Local boards don’t have an abuse button.

You cannot use the "Report Abuse" button on the local board.

The same guy/gal has been signing up for weeks, usually in the early morning. He/she/it never posts on the general board. By the time we report to the Mods the guy's used all kinds of profanity, etc. Just a general nuisance on the local board.

I find that troll amusing.
He’s persistent. Hard to rile him up though..

There is no such thing as an abuse button on a state board..I freepmail the mods..but it takes time..and sometimes a lot of time for results.

Our Texas board is very active.

Actually we should be able to out debate them.

We can't have a system where everyone can just go around pushing a button on anything they don't like.

We also have the option of totally ignoring them, the moderators will catch them soon enough.

Yeah! All Texas FReepers should be able to call upon The Lightning Bolts from Above to rain down at our command!

Nice post fellow TXFREEPER, screw you other 49+[etc.] State/Country/Territory/Province/Entity FREEPERS!

Seriously, we needed the humor here, right?)

There is something creative on the conservative live interactive forum on channel #americapolitics on the undernet server of IRC called Rule 8.

Its a script where fellow chatters, who are not recent signups, can vote one time either aye or nay on another chatter - and if that person gets 5 ayes they get an automatic ban of 3 hours. A nay vote cancels an aye vote. No votes in 15 min resets the counter. The bans are on the IP of the chatter and increase in duration the more times a chatter gets rule 8’d out of the channel.

It gets a little ugly sometimes when the trolls and liberals gang up and nay each other to prevent a ban. But over all it really works well to get rid of the liberals and trolls as well as adds a fun way to fight back at the liberals and trolls.

If the mods are interesting mail me and I can get you the script.

They are not there to debate sniper, only to disrupt, they are worse than trolls, they are scum.

What's to keep the trolls from using the "Easy Button" on legitimate Freepers?

Careful what you wish for - the Marxists would relish such a tool to squash the legitimate debates and seize control.

Use “report abuse” on a random thread to get the mods’ attention more quickly in that situation. This thread would be an appropriate candidate.

An easy button that would alert the mods who would know to take immediate action.

I say hook that button up to a wireless transmitter and make Jim Robinson and the moderators carry a portable beber stuner. When someone presses the easy button the stuner like device can stun them (make sure the beber is set to stun and not kill so we don’t run through hundreds of mods a day).

I should debate “fu Meg33”?
He just fills up the board with insults and nonsense.
He never posts on the main board..
I think he has had about 6 names.

I also got freepmail slamming the tea party.

He’s lonely and it’s no wonder!..I never answer him.

Hey, this post is just above the "Chinese Hospitals Tosses Live Baby" post.

Gives me that oh so queasy National Inquirer feel ~ so I haven't read that one yet.

TWO CUPS OF COFFEE FIRST and I will read it.

I reckon this particular one posts to the Locale pages
to circumvent the n00bie post-review system. My theory
is that the system does not apply to the Locale pages.

It’s a theory.

You'd have Dan Rather and his daughter in here every day zapping left and right. We don't need them, nor anything that allows them to do that.

Dan once a month or so is quite enough.

Same with that McCain girl ~ what's her name, Miss Chubbs? Used to sing with the Ditzy Witches or something.

Saving this thread to report our next troll by pushing “abuse”.

MUCH quicker response.

If you want immediate attention, click ‘Report Abuse.’ Mods generally do not sit around waiting for mail to hit the inbox.

Cicci: A button, you know, Senator, come on.
