Discussion, debate and polite adult argument can be really instructive and enjoyable for everyone. But when it degenerates into calling each other foul names, insulting one another's ancestry or gender, and attacking the person directly vs. his/her opinions or beliefs....that's when a line need to be drawn and a warning given. And FWIW, there are several regulars from BOTH sides that are guilty of going too far. I think the mods are quite capable of making these distinctions to make the forum a comfortable place for all.
    Agree, though our policy as mods has been address "obnoxiousness", as you very well define it, only if it disrupts a topic.

    annoying or objectionable due to being a showoff or attracting undue attention to oneself
    That's good. between oceanloverOH's and that, maybe there's room for a troll rule after all--not promising, just speaking for myself here.

    ...I just put people on ignore BUT I still see the spam topics they start so I can understand how people don't want to filter through all the BS, for example with cigar, they spam...

    Here's a thought after looking at the OP advice. In addition to ignoring trolling, start and post to non-trolling threads!

    Or you could always do like another forum I was a member of did.

    Create a "Garbage can" and "Soap box" section or sections and move crap like cary's "Americans have little dicks" threads there if you're not going to delete them! They would even move an individuals posts there if he or she was doing nothing but trolling in that particular thread!

    Trolling is being deliberately annoying to bug people and get a reaction. Imo, that's what you do. I doubt I'm the only one who views you that way. Btw, you said you were leaving, so why are you still here?
