we have a serious problem in the community: trolls have the ability to close threads.
they can wait a few hours, and close them again, and we have no tools to do anything about it.
a recent quote from a troll:
I take zero responsible if you get this thread closed for a period of time by reporting me - I can’t be at fault for something others are doing.
the troll is right! it is the action of REPORTING a troll that is causing the trouble! we should not, CANNOT, fear to use the report button. this particular troll actively spouts hate speech, and is polluting the entire forum. closing the threads they pollute is not helping, as they just move on, and then the threads re-open anyway.
i request, as an immediate interim fix, to stop closing threads temporarily. if possible, ban a USER from posting for 24h.
and of course, ACTUAL active forum moderation would help.
