    A mod making a thread which implies trolling might be a positive thing, ITSTL.

    If we teach our young posters to be more familiar with trolling then they wouldn't play it so badly when they progress to international foruming.

    I'm thinking more in terms of counter-trolling policy tbh.

    We all know trolls are irrational and hate our FREEDOM, so we'd better invade and take them all out before they develop Weapons of Mass Trolling to take them out pre-emptively.

    I call this strategy "Operation Sledger Freedom", and recommend the extended use of Atmospheric Forum Strikes. There may be some collateral damage, but if they're associating with trolls or look like trolls, is it really that big a loss anyway?

    Up to 15% of the post should be allowed for trolling because apparently everyone (except Sledger) trolls up to 15% per post on average.

    Never in a million years would I have thought Brumby to admit this!!!!!!

    I have breached the 15% rule on occasions, but haven't been reported. If I was Sri Lankan on the other hand, I suspect I'd have been up before the beak by now.

    It should be allowed because it's too easy to troll when in a match thread and then change your posting style to be within the accepted limits under scrutiny.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    If trolling was never legalised then who would have the highest post count of all time?

    I'm looking forward to Brumby's take on this.

    I made a handful troll posts on Planetcricket back in 08-09 and they are always brought up as evidence I couldn't hack it in gamer-friendly forums.
