I have noticed that there are some extremely obnoxious trolls who post on many threads with aggressive, irrelevant & insulting replies.

Of course, its their freedom of speech to do so, as long as they dont abuse or threaten others.

What The Local can do, is to introduce a blocking feature, so that we as discerning forum users can block out these trolls ONLY on OUR view - either on a user basis or individual posts - if thats possible to implement.

This will facilitate much cleaner reading & interaction on these forums, I can think of at least 5 users whom I would block right away if the forum had this feature.

Thanks, just found it! Its not very intuitively placed, I would have expected it be able to click on a user's name and add to the blocked list. But should do the trick for now.

This amazing thing called freedom of speech; what happened to the good old days; silencing the dissent. People should know their place, toe the majority or keep it shuush.

I really hope all the people on here moving to and settling in Sweden don’t share this view, else the future is not very promising!

Present-day Sweden in a nut-shell.

Could these people be any more pathetic?

Mommy, there's a troll on the forum, it's so annoying, it's so obnoxious, I need to block it, I need a clean forum where I can keep up high-quality discussions about cure for AIDS, NASA experiments and Pluto's unusual orbit, because my life outside this forum makes no sense! I spend my whole time on this forum and it has to be kept in order.

Anyway, I'm gonna keep trolling whenever I feel bored at work. biggrin.gif

Meh we throw around this troll thing too much. Some people are just enjoying life posting shite.

If this really bothers people what an anonymous person writes on here then blimey

Yes, the lack of sterility and controls on this forum are indeed contrary to everything Sweden stands for.

We just can't have people saying things we don't agree with, why, that would be completely undemocratic.

I enjoy the trolls but not the ones that are nasty to posters that are asking for real help

Ya, like when Gamla gave step-by-step instructions of how someone posting here, who was really, really clearly on edge, could commit suicide?

I'll bet Old Gamla has a shoe-box under his bed with missing women's DLs.

Eh Gamla, you old turd?

Troll and racist are two terms that are vastly overused.
