Is it time to get rid of the trolls on here?

Just in the last few posts, Neopolitan and Taco MacArthur have done nothing but troll. Sometimes they make interesting and useful posts. That is the reason I put up with their trolling. Now I'm starting to re-think this system. These are users that have been banned in the past and come back under different IP addresses and usernames. They start off posting decent under these new names then go back to their trolling ways. Not sure it's worth headache anymore.

It's no secret who I am so I won't pretend. The last time you banned me wasn't really fair. I called out a certain poster and proved I was right, the next thing I know is you are all pizzed off and I am gone. I don't really troll anyone on here, I have my jabs like most people and most people know I am goofing with them. I do think lotr takes the brunt of all the trolling. He is decent poster. I think Neo is a good poster also and Taco. Taco doesn't post no where near the amount he used to though.

Everyone trolls sometimes. Though it would certainly be tougher than our POTUS is with Russia.

See?

There are a couple mods that need to lose their mod status to be honest. Football forum. Locked me up to where all I could is read his PM's to me. One even suggested meeting up in real life to, I assume, fight.

While we are talking about this anyway.

As far as the trolls...I skim theirs usually. I can ignore them on my own without having to get into formal censure.

Both have added to many discussions here. I think 90% of the users on the debate forum have trolled.

I have no issues with trolls on a political/debate forum.

I'm a big boy, I can handle trolling.

However, trolling on the sports threads get real old, real quick. Most people come to read and enjoy good commentary on their favorite teams, conferences etc. There are trolls who simply look to denigrate and insult. They need to go.

ronnie must be among the lowest value-added of all the trolls. Seldom posts anything of any redeeming value.

Maybe I don't understand the definition of a troll, but I don't think that pair fits it with respect to the debate forum.

We need dorks to smack around.

These are the people with the lowest reputations. Some no longer post here and some have taken up new names after losing access for a while:

There are a few others that are not on this list that would be labeled a troll. And there are a couple on the list above that aren't trolls but have difficulty playing nice with others.

There have been others make the same comment. Most of the complaints I get are from people upset about trolling.

The other major complaint is from posters who complain about people from rival schools. At least with this complaint, it's mostly from passionate people defending their schools rather than someone getting their kicks by trying to make everyone else miserable.

The debate forum mostly polices itself. The trolls mostly try to mess up the general forum and the pro/college forums.

29 names for 12 or 14 people.

Then why in the hell did you start the thread in the debate forum?

I love those guys.

It's your site and you can do what you want obviously. But do you not see a bit of hypocrisy in starting an entire thread to call me a troll while censoring straight forward questions about another user's behavior?(don't worry, I won't get into specifics, but you know what I'm referencing.)

Hopefully this isn't considered a troll post as I'm genuinely curious. I'd go as far to say perceived favoritism may drive some of the trolling behavior.

Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Did you start this thread because of the Mavs thread? Because I don't see any troll posts from me in that thread. I agreed with one poster that it wasn't the topic I expected when I saw Mavs in the title, gave my opinion on the topic and questioned your intent on wanting a debate on the subject since you had not taken a stance.
