I prefer users who created their account in the 9th innings of an 8-4 loss. Those are the die hard contributors.

Nah, this is a time to get more interest to the site. We'll deal with problems as they come.

Come on. The dude who created an account and then first posted "Go Cubs" or whatever and then immediately after made a pro Cardinals post was hilarious. Then he created another account and had that one banned also.

Yeah seriously. Our mods are great and they take care of problems swiftly. It shouldn't offend you to see some troll comments on occasion considering the way we normally talk to each other. If we can get a couple of solid posters out of this playoff run, it will be worth idiot trolls posting. And as pointed out some of the trolling is so bad its freaking hilarious.

I prefer the idea of letting as many Cardinal fan trolls sign up as they want, then ritually sacrificing them one by one
