By the way, all of these comments were written by the same person, a resident troll who most frequently goes by the screen name of "grom", "akbar" and "me 109".

Incidentally, this is why I'm considering requiring registration for all commenters.

Why not just ban or suspend his ip address.

If you're not checking ip addresses, then you could start checking them in order to keep the commenting free.

Just a suggestion. I'm not sure how much of a code change that would be, but that's probably what I would do if you wanted to preserve anonymous commenting.

Trolls are tricky! I found that out years ago by trying to control spam & trolling by checking user IP's.

They are like those critters in "Wack-a-Mole".

It's sad when the only people you have to talk to are sock puppets.

I agree with required registration BTW.

On the upside, it's back to school next week, so mummy and daddy will have the little gaffer tucked into bed by that time of night. I hear Peggy sings a real sweet lullaby.

In other news, yesterday's BKS audio is slowly creeping online. Will be interesting to see if the Bratina audio is released before the Spec's Q&A.

Funny he was willing to "gamble" that the province would pony up for his damn stadium but he assumes the province won't deliver for LRT...
