Let the trolls ban themselves

We've had some problems with trolls in this site through the years... although they are (luckily) a small minority, they tend to stir up angry feelings and/or insult other ppl in here.

As a suggestion, I was wondering if it is not possible for the site to automatically ban (temporarily/permanently) someone who reaches a number of downvotes during a specific period of time. That way the site would make those trolls keep a track of and ban themselves. Like -50 votes a day and get banned a week... -100 a day and get banned permanently. Of course a comment can be really just be poor and have no malicious intention... and that's why we should also tolerate a bit of "whining" from some and raise the bar to where the score reaches a "trolling" level.

The reason I write this is because some ppl comment for no other reason than to get as much downvotes as possible. Anyone can get downvotes, but persistently getting it and reaching scores of -500 or -1000 or even lower... That is because that person is doing it on purpose... It's not that hard to be polite.

Finally I hope we can all help each other making this place nice to be in... even if we might have our differences and rivalries.

Peace!

Well if someone was so inclined they could ban an member by making 100 accounts and down voting , hell with the right macro you could ban every member on the site in a few hours, just saying

Axactly as Golefty said.

FR must then have a very smart data mining engine to stage all that before taking action. Smart enough to learn the behavioral troll actions versus bot-iterative commands.

But nevertheless. Still an excellent idea, FR can analyze number of swear words, downvoted etc...

Tuan_jinn: But you also have admins checking things that are way out of what is normal... instead of checking every single comment. It would be a helpful tool, not something the entire site would rely on.

How about using Pelle's idea but instead of banning we just bring it to the moderators' attention? For example: A comment with a score of -10 or lower gets automatically flagged. The moderators can then check out what's wrong with the comment (if anything at all).

Sometimes users down vote a comment just because it doesn't align with their club, for e.g pro barca comments on a madrid page , or vise versa. or when someone attempts a failed joke like one of those "this is BIll jokes " and get -40 likes, should they be banned for that, i have found the website to have a lot less trolls lately and when it happens i find the moderators handle it well. but if its a huge problem still maybe something else need s to be looked at

do you guys feel the trolling is out of controll :P
