Patrick, you should make TROLLS pay
Again, treat it as a thought experiment.
In the event the OP was referring to Marcus and Jazz my defense of Free speech would still stand in my first rely.
Marcus - no. I don't see any tells. Jazz is consistently using uppercases in his titles. To me it sounds like a tell, sure.
I think I know which individual you are talking about. I used to enjoy his or her posts. Definitely not a troll, if it's the same person (being abrasive doesn't make you one).
HEYYOU is the only real troll!All others are loser,failure nothings.
WookieMan: I think that you helped me to better illustrate why "ignore" button is not quite all that. You did it by asking that other members stop responding in "MAGA HATS, THE NEW SWASTIKA" thread and thus stop propelling it to the top. Whereas you could've just used "Ignore" button yourself.You don't need to explain, I can see why, and use it as an example.With "ignore", you can create user-defined comfort zones (echo chambers in extreme cases). Using "taxation for propaganda", you prevent exploitation of a platform for political/financial gain. The two objectives overlap, but only slightly.
Each post that meets certain criteria (some combination of hard rules with ML could help on this) should be considered a political advertisement.
We can't ban offensive speech because then we'd be at the mercy of the most easily offended; the lowest common denominator, and wouldn't be able to discuss jack shit.
Sure. Basic rule is this: propaganda contains more persuasion than content. This is by design. Here's my preliminary list of tells, a couple of them go back to Goebbels and probably further back in time.
