    I agree. I sometimes leave the posts after banning the poster, if they are interesting and potentially helpful to other members.

    I'm easily swayed. Those sound like good points to me too!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    When it comes down to keep us free from trolls, your label should be changed from "Moderator" to "Exterminator" . Great job guys (and girls, of course!)
