Aran/Mods

I know Aamir made a thread like this, but once again the mods/Aran either ignored it or didnt see it.

Hey Aran,

I have been coming to the site for years and I really enjoy the laid back atmosphere. I have been on other sites, mostly NFL forums, where it is a dictatorship and mods will shut down every tiny little off topic post mere seconds after its posted. I do not want this site to be like that, but there comes a time when that is needed. So here is my question, WHAT DO THE MODS ACTUALLY DO? I do not mind off topic posts, but when a poster is allowed to troll for over 4 months and over 500 posts that is just pathetic. Yes I am talking about the infamous ENOGSIWONdede. The dude has yet to make a good post and is below -2000 points. Lets looks at some of his recent posts:

I also recall him telling Aamir to and I quote, "go paint your prick pal". So Aran, it is time to start enforcing some rules against trolling or elect a few mods who will.

Ps. I am sure no mods will see this because they do not exist

I fully support you on this.

I fully support you on this. It's getting really annoing with all those wortheless threads and comments. Something must be done, because it definitely affects all forum negatively.

I concur. I respectfully

I concur. I respectfully request this guy to be kicked off of this site. Some people just ruin this site by making terrible posts. Enough is enough.

You guys just feed the fire

You guys just feed the fire by replying to him though. Obviously, he's doing this to get attention... And how do you solve the problem of somebody who just wants attention? Ignore them and they'll eventually find something else to do.

Eventually Aran and the mods will take care of it though.

MODs, to my knowledge, have

MODs, to my knowledge, have the ability to delete a thread, delete a reply to a thread or edit another poster's reply if deemed inappropriate.

They used to have the power to ban users, but now I have no idea how that's done.

My Idea

Aran should make a separate forum about trolls. There we can discuss why the troll's account should be banned from the website and have it in a nice democratic style ; )

im surprised. nbaflyguy, you

im surprised. nbaflyguy, you call out enogsiwondede for his asian shot blocker poll, but he didnt do anything trolling wise. It wsnt a good thread, but it wasnt the worst ive seen on here on a week by week basis either. You and many others actually kept it alive and actively commented on it and made that thread relevant, so you actively made the chocie to contribute to that thread and keep it going but then decide it doesnt belong here? It also provided for some entertaining geography lessons as enog educated some people on here about the countires and regions that make up asia.

Nbanflguy: Enog has been banned. My apologies that it didn't come sooner. Everyone please keep posts on topic. Trolls will be banned for repeatedly making off topic posts.

Also, in the NBA section of

Also, in the NBA section of the forum there are some users posting completely offtopic (and repeating the comments in every thread). Actually, what bothers me is that I'm missing new threads because old ones are being brought to the front because of this...

Some posts are ridiculous but

Some posts are ridiculous but some are funny they are so bad, our old friend Euroballer springs to mind, I tend to ignore topics started by people who we know are poor posters whilst maybe looking at what say Euroballer posts just for a laugh.

If posts get offensive certainly along racial lines then I would agree they need to be shut down but if someone posted say name "The Top 10 White NBA players with rhythm" then I think we would just laugh at it or maybe suggest Darko or Scalabrine
