Free Speech Isn't Free
At least for trolls. I have implemented my first anti-troll action ever and banned two specific IP addresses: 22.214.171.124
and 126.96.36.199 [Update: and now 188.8.131.52. That was the third addy I've seen this troll use, but it was so infrequent I thought I could ignore it. No longer.]
. These have been the biggest offenders, and I'm hopeful that I won't need to ban an entire range.
I also deleted a bunch of idiotic posts, so some commenters' reactions to the troll might sound like non sequiturs. This won't completely solve the troll infestation, but it helps a little and certainly made me feel good.
Hopefully our troll friend will get a life, get laid, and stop whoring for BushCo.
