    Er, as he was shot down in flames can you please cancel the Pos Rep I gave to Tomcat and replace it with Neg Rep? I like to be on the winning side :bow:

    Feedback is exactly what I want tomcat, and it is appreciated. Unfortunately we can't do everything we want due to time/cost/technical hurdles, and this is one of those cases. It's a good idea, but not implementable with our current resources. Keep the suggestions flowing though!

    what about 'trolls' ? I have seen other boards ruined by these online parasites who look for trouble and just want to generally make everyones life miserable. any issues with them here? or perhaps they are the dishonorably discharged members whose profiles I see here with a line through their names? I am curious:confused:

    That is correct. There are a certain number of possibilties going from a warning and/or and email , a few days in the cooler, or a permanent ban for trolls looking for trouble. They usually get spotted right away and even if we miss them, some of the rogues can report them.

    Yes, Katrina, just as Skipper related. I have very little tolerance for those who come in here just to stir up the caacaa. Otto, the owner of this and another good forum, likes to keep a clean ship, and we do.

    I joined recently as I was impressed with the knowledge, photos and general useful/interesting information on this site, anything that keeps it that way sounds good to me

    The little "Nazi" invasion we had a little while ago is a good example. They were all dealt with in a timely manner :).

    Hello Katrina....

    Yes, we occasionally have such problems. There is a 'Panzerpenguin' who deals with many of them, and as for myself, I favour a method which you may appreciate.....

    Read carefully about this matters: What is an Internet Troll? (Posting Guidelines - Netiquette) What is a Forum Troll?

    If you wish will read in spanish: La Primera y Segunda Guerra Mundial - Fauna Virtual, los Trolls...

    Martin, how dare you refer to him in such a manner! Quote: "PanzerPenguin" You should know better! Luckily, I have managed to soothe the feathers of our fearless der PanzerPenguin (note correct terminology and italics when referring to our little feathered friend) and he will let you off the hook this time!

    But indeed, :panzerpenguin: loves to kill :troll1:!
