Ok guys this problem has been bothering me for a while now, so I thought I should make a thread about it in site discussions. I have seen many instances since becoming a mod of people quoting obvious trolls, quoting posts that are obviously going to get trashed and replying in other ways to posts that will inevitably get trashed along with any responses to them. And the most frustrating thing is that I don't just see this from newcomers I also see this from members with thousands of posts here who issue reports all the time, and usually report the offending post after replying to it. Now this acknowledgement of trolls not only perpetuates their trolling and bumps it to the top of the latest discussion box, it also multiplies our workload by a vast amount. Instead of having to just deal with the problematic post itself we have to clean up all the responses to it as well. So what I would like from all you guys is to think before you hit the reply button. What will a response from me achieve when it will just end up being trashed with all the rest? So instead of hitting the reply button, just hit the report button instead. Thanks guys.
