A Moderated newsgroup is almost impossible to troll. [...]
There is some overhead involved. It would require
organising, advertising, straw poll, voting, establishment
and resources (dedicated server and management staff).
Perhaps it is time to start comp.os.linux.advocacy.moderated
group? Your thoughts?
I agree, & it's one of the reasons I like mailing lists.
Seems like the trolls are squealing already. ;-)
We haven't heard the last of it! :-)
Per the Hyphenologist link:
Subject: 5.1 Ignore them and they will go away.
uk.local.yorkshire contained this telling sentence.
Most people like the countryside, but not everyone is willing
to tread shin deep through pig shit to get to a meadow.
Kill filing is only a partial solution. In a moderated group,
only place the trolls would be screaming is outside the forum.
They could wallow in their mire there.
