    A feature both useful and entertaining...I call it "Troll-b-gone".

    Here's how it works...

    Once a troll has been identified, the administrator initiates a setting that allows the troll to post and see the content of all it's posts, but all other members only see the trolls moniker and the word "Troll".

    Simultaneously, the troll is blocked from viewing any new posts to a special "Troll betting" forum where members can wager rep points on how long it takes before the troll gives up posting.

    Useful and entertaining.

    This it's what happens when a fella is still awake at three in the morning.

    I'm halfway with ya.

    The trolls should be able to read and post as normal, but their own posts & topics should only be visible TO the troll.

    Anyone familiar with IRCd might recognize this treatment as /shun
