    Currently to access this forum a user needs "100 posts and 1 month" of membership. Would you change this to limit a little bit further access to diminish trolling etc.? How?

    In what way would that diminish trolling? What's your definition of trolling?

    "trolling etc." ;) notice the etc.

    100 posts and one month are quite easy to obtain. It requires little effort, so you're going to have people that have little of no clue of how MR's netiquette works - and how we communicate (= fight ;) ) on PRSI come here and stir the pot.

    It should at least match the requirements of the Marketplace forum.

    Well part of the problem of not being able to post in a certain sub-forum is that you don't learn how it works hands-on. That said, I don't think PRSI is any kind of "sanctum" that needs to be protected. As far as political sections on forums go (I'm a member of many different fora), it's pretty low-brow. And that includes posts from users who have thousands of posts. We're never going to see an end to "Are liberals/conservatives really this retarded?"-type baiting posts. That's just the nature of online political discussion.

    We need fresh blood in here. Whatever that takes is my vote.

    More new and fresh takes please. Place is stagnating.

    Same here, it took me like two months of constructive posting in other areas to be able to join PRSI. If someone is going to troll they're going to troll regardless of what it takes....that's the point of being a troll.

    The requirement to pretend that you are actually a mac user is a burdensome one.

    I would like to hold PRSI elections where we can elect our own moderators.

    I nominate myself and all my multiple personalities, if I win everyone will be required to own a gun and duels would once again be legal, that should cut down on the personal insults :p

    I think there is a certain change that happens in PRSI. I joined here and never had any desire to troll when on the other threads or groups. The temptatio

    Is trolling a problem? Us regulars seem to follow the rules. I don't have a problem with the rules as they are now. It's not like the 100 posts you have to have now are some how vetted.

    I don't think we can freely talk on this issue without addressing past or current moderation practices. Violating this rule will get us suspended or worse. I think there should be a dedicated thread or forum to openly discuss those issues.

    Do you think that this thread should be in the "Site & Forum Feedback" section, or here?

    Every once in a while when a front page article we'll have a few non-regulars chime in on the conservative side of the argument. Maybe they don't like the circle jerk of leftist drivel. Besides like the 6 or so quasi conservatives must be gluttons for punishment.

    Well, not sure whether the thread wishes to have this topic discussed (or taken) seriously - in which case I would recommend that you request it be moved to the SFF section, or merely have some fun discussing it amongst ourselves here, in which case I'd suggest that we leave it be, where it is, currently.
