    I mean he clearly has a troll persona, which lets face it is not only the most hilarious thing you can do, but maybe the most original too, but surely Trolling is against the rules, I think even mods have said we're not to take him seriouslty, well whats the ****ing point of him then?

    Another poster has said he's gone into the American Politics thread to cause arguments, because it's boring else. Isn't that trolling?

    OH, you're a Scot that's right.

    I'll remember eventually, give me a chance.

    >"Now he's just causing arguments that man is!"

    I refuse to post seriously in most things because in relation especially to cricket I love the game like a son I'll never have, but I know very little about it in comparison to anybody else here, and nothing but. If I do troll, as the buzzword goes for any base-level banter that happens online, it's lighthearted mockery and nothing vicious (can think of once in my entire time here I went over the line with a personal attack) especially in the Politics thread you've just mentioned, which ironically has been more amiable since the greatest poison decided to exit the system earlier this week.

    You want trolls? Go for people like vicleggie, they get their comeuppance and I keep swimming.

    Can we please not mention Michael Clarke? I remember the Ashes challenge from one of the EA Cricket games and Jonathan Agnew's annoying voice goes "50 for Michael Clarke. The blonde bombshell from New South Wales..." every time in my head when I read the ****'s name.
    Its ****ing irritating as ****.

    Reporting is definitely the best way to deal with these issues, but as it is rightly pointed out, that can only go so far if we're being passive. In this case, the issue genuinely was mods not being active enough and cleaning up the reports. A lot of us are in the middle some stuff that is time consuming, putting pretty much the whole load on the handful who are more active. It got bad enough where the most useless mod here (myself) had to clean up the spam threads.

    As Dan alluded to, we're discussing a few things in the mod forum and hopefully you'll see some changes soon.

    I feel like I've had to say this a few times before, but the rules as they are right now were written almost entirely by mods with a small contribution from James. People who are not mods anymore had a big hand in it. Even the infraction system wasn't his idea IIRC.
