It's up to the mods to remove the troll posts...which they seem to leave up most of the time.
and i agree,you do get people who will try and de-rial some threads on purpose,or say ridiculous things..but you have to put up with that,and if you argument hold weight,then let the people decide.
Most people here are not stupid,they can see when a thread or person is being attacked or insulted for no real reason then to belittle a thread.

So that readers know it has the possibility of being censored ... in a case where a thread is horribly being censored, another thread could be created to show the fallacy in it ... this could spark some real debates
Im down for 5 a month.
1. Members had some control over our own threads such as being able to delete the posts of trolls and rude/ignorant people in general. Many other forums on the net give members that option. It would also help in keeping threads on track instead of de-railing the OP.
2. Members had control of being able to block a member from his/her future threads. I have seen cases of people actually posting rude comments in the threads of people they just dislike, time and time again. Bullying so to speak.
