The trolling on this site
is getting out of hand has been out of hand since DK4 was launched in February. Time and time again, we've seen trolls come, stay for weeks at times, rack up hundreds upon hundreds of HRs, and nothing happens. Recently, repeat zombie Red State Ambassador/Blue State Ambassador, along with however other many names this person has, comes in and acts like Jesus because he knows nothing will happen to him.
The troll knows you're weak on trolls, Markos. They're taking advantage of you, they're taking advantage of me, they're taking advantage of all of us and the way this site is being run. I'm not going to TTFN and all that crap like I did last time over this same damn situation. I'm going to be here and fight for our right to have a site where we know these fucking trolls will be dealt with swiftly.
Several front-pagers and staff members acknowledged the existence of Blue State Troll today, and dropped HRs like it's actually going to make a difference. No banning, nothing. Just drop an HR and that's that. Really? Like that worked for the other 253 people who HRed this douchebag before you did. The person has made 3 comments and has accumulated 254 HRs. This person is acting like he speaks for the entire website, and you're not doing anything! What the hell is it going to take? It doesn't take much to get DailyKos negative publicity, just look at the unfortunately-worded diary posted several days before Gabby Giffords was shot. If a troll comes here, posts a bunch of diaries, and one agency picks it up and runs with it, how are you going to combat it? Fuck, if nothing else, that will ruin the credibility of our site.
You need to deal with the trolls. Not just this wankwaffle, but all of the repeat offenders. As much as you don't want to, we need a moderator, dude. The autoban system isn't working, and it hasn't worked in a long freakin' time. I hope to God that you don't take care of your cars like you do this site, because I don't want to be anywhere near you driving that thing.
