I personally think being able to *temporarily* ban an account for up to 3 days would be sufficient to curb weekend or late-night trolls. As stated above, not sure if that aligns with GL's policies.

Also, I would like to re-iterate the "don't feed the trolls" mantra - report their posts, but resist the urge to reply, please.

GL should get this guys IP address or some other way to identify him and have him permanently banned. Did they just scrub his comments or put a little effort into making sure this sicko never gets access again?

Besides the obvious hacker selling his wares, what's also outrageous is all this talk by so many regular forum users lately about how to glitch, exploit and even just hack and even results of what they did in the past or possible uses in the future. I have never seen this kind of stuff allowed in forums in nearly 20 years. Something is definitely wrong around here.

It is only fun to troll if you get a reaction. Do not react, that is what the troll wants from you, just completely ignore.

@BT9 - I love glitches and am not afraid or ashamed to use them. If not for two glitches that gave me plenty of cards, I would not be playing this game.

Little reminder for everyone: You can add users to your foe list, so you won’t have to see their posts. Let them talk to themselves next time.

I did that. Unfortunately some people reply with quote from the troll and so I ended up reading some of his nonsense.

This last weekend wasn’t a pleasure on the forum, no moderating/no contact/no help around. As we‘ve seen this troll had a good timing and obviously some powers to do what he liked. I didn’t know about the „don’t feed the trolls“ mantra. And to whom I report troll posts if nobody’s in the house? If just someone with responsibility would have read just for one minute if there‘s something/what‘s going on in the forum, reports were invalid. Please pin above something like an emergency plan how to behave with trolls.

Everybody else needs to do the same. As I said above, we can block them, so at least we won’t have to see their posts.
