I've just banned a few troll accounts - the two grahams and the heid. I'll try to keep a closer eye on things over the next week or so to hopefully react a little quicker next time. I'm now cleaning up the threads they contaminated so actual serious discussion can resume.
This past Friday I handed out one week bans, final warnings as it were, to two of the more notorious posters on the forum. I'm guessing this was their reaction. In any case, bugger it, I'll just make their bans permanent.
I can sometimes be slow to react to issues on here as I don't get on as often as I'd like. If folks could help me out by reporting the posts of any suspected troll accounts, then I should be able to take care of things a little quicker. Also, please don't be shy to shoot me a private message if you have any problems.
