Actually for chronic trolls and baiters they should simply be warned then banned. Gets rid of a LOT of problems.
We're now letting a select few trouble makers dictate and ruin what has been a GREAT forum...
Well, as one who was always labelled a "chronic troll and baiter" - that's always a bit of a subjective line. And I know first hand that the mods around here are extremely fair.
So let's not get carried away. They'll do the right thing. And this is STILL the best forum out there - even without an edit button.
