Folks,

It is playoff time. People from enemy forums will visit. All global mods sitewide may have to step in and deal with issues, and my observations tonight lead me to make this post, and one specific point:

FOR THE LOVE OF MODERATION PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND TO TROLLS AND JUST REPORT THEM INSTEAD!!!!!

Vigilante justice of telling a troll to GTFO or whatever makes things worse, and could inadvertently get you into trouble as well. Just report the post, let a mod deal with it and clean the thread up and all is better. But the more you feed the trolls, the harder of a job it is for mods, and that's no fun. We want to watch the playoffs, too, so why give us more work?

Also, not all people from enemy forums will troll. Many are polite. Be polite back to them. They shouldn't expect the red carpet to be rolled out for their team, but they shouldn't have a valid point rejected because you decide to yell "TROLL!" at them.

Thank you for understanding.
