    ...approved tradition at Daily Kos.

    The commenter in question, DatsRight has said this:

    New Teddy? No Way! Mcain never drowned anyone?

    And this:

    Kennedy Option..Chivas with or w/o the rocks.

    And this:

    His name is Ted..someday he'll be dead Bawh Bawh.

    It's all subjective, of course, but for my money, this puts him in the category of "egregious" and "obvious" trolls. The HRs seem appropriate to me.

    Some people would be better off not reading diaries they comment on, since they already have all the answers.

      So what are the standards?

        ...yours and others' to deal with 95% of this stuff. If it was only up to me and other administrators, we would do away altogether with the autoban, which DatsRight has now triggered.

          you are depending on vigilante posses to do your dirty work for you?

          Are you sure this is the culture you wish to encourage?

          Weren't the previous comments you cited enough?

          If he hadn't triggered autoban would he still be around?

          Those hateful comments are not sufficient for you to take action.

          Well, what is then?

          This is at least as diary worthy as your new politeness policy.

          You are encouraging mob justice.

            ...appropriately - before I assembled the evidence.

            This was not an instance of mob rule or a vigilante posse; it was an instance of the autoban working precisely as it was designed to work - booting out an egregious and obvious troll. Commenters correctly identified DatsRight as a disruptive, inflammatory, bad-faith actor, tagged him as a hide-on-sight poster and ejected him.
