    Hello,

    I know there are many people here who are tired of about ten people each posting twenty threads a day each in Politics and Current Events and it's always the same people, one has just posted his FOURTEENTH THREAD today in about six hours, that one is almost certainly a sock, joined six years ago, has less than 400 posts and 250 of those posts have been in the past day and a half.

    I think it would be a very good idea that these ten people are limited to posting two threads a day because posting so many multiple threads and twenty threads a day every day is a combination of Spamming and Clogging both Politics and Current Events.

    I add that the vast majority of these twenty threads a day each are pretty much designed to get people arguing with each other.

    The mods here (not all of them, thanks God!) tend to ban the conservatives for posting the truth and almost never ban liberals.

    Look at Vigilante 's example: he has been banned several times before the election and is still banned while a lot of posters you've mentioned have had quite a few of racist comments and get away with that..

    Prolific posters keep their board stats up so I doubt that limits will be applied. You may wanna just ignore.

    The moderation on this board is decent and they will deal with the stupidity of spammers.

    I sometimes ignore them unless I am in my mood to flame then I might pick up some of their threads and play with them.

    I know it is annoying when you see an entire page of one poster and it is impossible to ignore but again the moderators usuall deal with this...

    Conservatives are so persecuted.

    I have chosen not to mention any names, because it's Announcements and Feedback and I rarely post a thread in this section of the forum.

    However this stuff is just getting too much and I know others agree because there have been private discussions about this group of ten posting at least twenty threads a day every day and they've been doing this now for several weeks.

    These threads only are posted in the Politics Section or Current Events, but at least five of these ten people post all of their multiple threads a day only in the Politics Section and the nature of many of these threads violates the rules of the Politics Section.

    Each OP is designed to be some form of Red Rag to the bull situation, each thread follows the same modus operandi, post the OP, professional Trolls pile in to fan the thing, then others get into the thread to defend their side of the argument, then the name calling starts from the Trolls, then the others defend themselves and then the thread gets derailed and then the Trolls report on anyone who was defending either themselves or the target of the attack, repeat and rinse twenty times a day.

    They are ruining this forum and it's about time something was done to reduce their obvious deliberate disruptiveness, it would help if this crowd was limited to posting just two threads each a day.
