What is done about trolls on this board? I've seen a few. Some I know that you've silently dealt with. Others keep coming back and annoying the members who do use this community for its intended purpose. Is there any way to report some one who we feel is being a troll?

Also, is it possible to have a sticky for those who come here wanting to be diagnosed? I've seen many people come through asking the same question in virtually the same way over and over. The answer never changes. It's always go take a test. There's no way to tell from symptoms alone.

Trolls are people who post things specifically to get a reaction out of people. They might not even believe what they are saying.

An example is some one claiming to be a 15 year old girl insisting that she's ready and trying for a baby. This gets a rise out of most posters and tends to amuse the troll.

Trolls can also be spammers which I've seen dealt with here in a nice silent manner.

lol Maryam. See my previous post. If someone will write an answer I'll post it at the top as a sticky.

If you see some one you think is a troll, please send me a private message and I'll look into it.

You're right. I do try to get rid of all spammers. If you see one slip through the cracks, pm me and I'll take care of it asap.

J.T.
