As of Tuesday night, I have now banned 30 people, and pulled ratings from 36. About a dozen of those bannings were bona fide trolls or zombies. The rest don't have to be permanent, and I'll be happy to revisit in a few weeks. I may revisit the ratings ban as well, though not for at least a month.
I'm still reviewing some individuals, particularly some borderline cases, but the bulk of the purge is done. We'll soon be adding a "NR" icon in place of the mojo bars for those whose ratings have been pulled. I'm not convinced that's actually a wise thing to do, but I'm going to give it a shot.
I'll still be moderating, but I'm going to get back to writing and doing more positive things than trying to babysit the biggest assholes in the comments. My trigger finger is still itchy. So now's not a good time to test me.
