Just to be clear we are talking one individual who could best be described as a bit of a nutcase. I would certainly not tar others, and in particular people who have contributed constructively to any discussion here, with the same brush

which is all fairly obvious but the number of posts on the front page is still nearly 3x what the thread has, why doesn't it update correctly?

That would be an ecumenical matter

Is there any way that boards.ie could get the IP's of the trolls, and have them arrested, should said troll threaten boards.ie or it's volunteers?

I wouldn't worry about it. He's probably due to go out on strike from boards soon anyway.

I wouldn't associate the very informed comments of those posters with the trolling and spamming that went on.
I completely agree, didn't think my post implied anything negative about them or at leas that was ny intention.

C&T troll: I'm a winner, I can do this all night,?

Normal poster: Kind of makes you the opposite of a winner...

(I don't use their username as I don't know if they want to be named here)

I suspect there are 2 trolls who are regularly trying to disrupt this forum. One is pretty bad with the comments they make, but the other is a particularly nasty piece of work, making comments within usernames, e-mail addresses and posts that are aimed at mods and posters. This evening (s)he pleaded with the mods and some users to kill themselves, under the username "Electrocution", and also posted this:

Quote:
Lets finish them - lets put the mods 10 feet under

trying to get railwaymen the sack for stupid humans
and this:

Quote:
let them detrain, tie them to the track and led the train decapitate them

FINISH THEM
In the hope the other troll actually reads posts rather than simply posting to disrupt the forum may I suggest (s)he has a think about whether (s)he really wants to associate themselves with this particular individual

Now I have not been involved in any discussions in this forum other than in my capacity as Admin. I have been subject to some comments, but it's water off a duck's back to me. I really am not taking a great deal of interest on the underlying topics - I'm much more interested in getting on my bike than catching a train or a bus. I've little doubt I will be subject to further vitriol, but would like the wider community here to have a flavour of the people who are trying to get discussion around here closed down.
