    How can we get rid of the trolls on here? They're such a waste of time.

    Which ones? You have to be careful. TT would not survive without the humor of some of them. It would affect the balance of the forums!

    Some trolls do keep things moving, add a little spice.

    Yes that was decently funny. Not his best but funny. I like the kid who said he kept getting "aroused" while on the courts it was funny (RestockingTues)

    Too bad he got banned. I use to hit with him(restockingtues) and his on-court humor isn't as funny as his forums humor.

    I thought this section TT Updates was meant for the admin to post updates not for us to complain.

    The person/persons who posts all those large photos is definitely a troll. He even replies to his own posts to make it look real.

    This thread brings to mind something i have always wondered. Does putting trolls on the ignore list ruin part of the fun of the forum? Because i have been very tempted to put 6-1 6-3 6-0 on that list

    Nope. There are plenty of people who can't resist replying to any troll, resulting in the blocking being a bit of a waste of time as you can read their posts when people quote them.

    1-3-0 is adorable though, like a puppy almost :p

    This board relies heavily on you, the user, to report posts that you feel don't belong or are offensive. Not every reported post is acted upon but it helps us keep an eye on the situation.

    We wish it were easy to make this board perfect for everyone, and we do our best, but the ignore list can do a lot for you in specific cases.

    If you feel like someone is trolling, do your best to not give them the gratification of replying.

    If a poster is ignored do we continue to receive email notifications when they reply?

    It would help with the mind clutter if that could be changed.

    A lot of people here seem classify trolls as anyone who disagrees with them. And sometimes it is hard to tell a troll from someone with ridiculous/extreme opinions.

    Its the internet.. one does not simply get rid of trolls

    You speak some truth here. Use the ignore list for those who you feel do not contribute to the conversation. You can also unsubscribe from threads that no longer interest you.

    And please don't forget that the report button is there for you to help us make the place better, but please only report rule violations and not just people with differing opinions.
