To moderators: do you ban trolls from the website? I know that you can lock certain topics, but there is a member here who constantly offends people. Raj62 is the member name.

I'm not aware of any other complaints.

What's the specific nature of yours? Telling us you think someone is a troll isn't really all that useful. If they are breaking the rules, then report how and where please.

I'll just add that it is better if reports about other members are made privately by PM to one of the mods: TallyMan, Moog, or Sallamandrina. Unless of course it is a blatant troll / spammer in which case it is better to post in the moderator attention thread above because the moderators watch for new posts in that thread and you will get someone's attention quicker.

Gah, when will people start knowing the difference between trolls and ignorance? I just looked at his posts and saw no troll. Just an ignorant person. Being ignorant does not make you a troll. Besides he only has 12 posts and hasn't made one since March 11th.

And it's against the rules to call other member trolls but seems to be okay at times and when I did it one time here, I got reminded about the rule and that I had been called one too in the past.

If in doubt it is best to send a PM to a mod. The only circumstances when it is really appropriate to publicly declare someone a troll is if they are one of those blatant trolls e.g. those who have just joined to mock those with aspergers and are very insulting to everyone, they also tend to pick offensive usernames.

If someone is just ignorant or not up to speed with the site rules then send a PM to a mod.
