I moved your post here.

Calling people a troll is against the rules, this has been mentioned many times. If people are doing it, report it. I have not seen any reports regarding this so haven't acted on it.

Hitch and Benotti are doing it all the time. Of course you have seen it.

I don't see any of the reports that you filed on this, maybe you should point out specific infractions rather than making blanket statements that may or may not be true.

True. There are literally hundreds of posts a day to monitor and also rules that can be flexible: for example, I mess with Netserk often, even impersonated him by using his old avatar and signature. From his reaction, I feel that he was good sport and understood that it actually was a compliment to him: I like the guy. He knows it. I wouldn't do the same for 99.9% of the members. We all have our threshold of tolerance to jokes and posting styles.

If something offends you, please report the post. The reports get dealt with swiftly, behind the scenes, and sometimes lead to, you know the say, disciplinary action up to and including termination :) . Sad, but we don't want to be YouTube either. We can disagree all we want and still remain courteous.

You know, I would say that I'm fine with it 8/10 times, but such references are only truly funny the first few times, so you (I) would have to explore novel ways to signal that you somehow are picking up on what kind of human being that is behind that avatar and screen name you see.
