One particularly troublesome person has been trolling this site.
Happily the moderators have contained the problem and I want to express my appreciation for their good work.

I agree, the moderators have thus far done a great job!

I would like to bring up what discussed in the chat in regards to this:

  • Don't poke the troll. As much fun as it sounds like, anything you do to him, comments and the like, feed his need for the next attack. Just report the answer/question or vote to close if you can.
  • Be sure its him (or any other troll) before action is taken. We still need to maintain a friendly attitude to other new people.
  • Don't edit any of the obvious stupid questions into good questions, it still feeds him. If you like the concept of the question, wait for his to close, and open up a real, proper question of your own.
  • They're rolling everything of his under one account, so we should see everything go there.
  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks for the feedback, those are good points. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ I noticed a picture that I've seen floating around on Usenet where someone enjoys extolling the virtues of point-and-shoot cameras over DSRLs, provoking long flamewars. I guess it was inevitable that this person or someone inspired by him or her would show up here. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Well, we're just not going to engage in a flame war (hopefully). We (the community) have the power and this is a time we just need to use it appropriately. \$\endgroup\$

Think of it as a good opportunity to work for the Deputy badge. :)

In seriousness, it probably helpful to keep a watch on this page: https://photo.stackexchange.com/review (See the little explanation box on the right of the page.)
