in thread Crazy like a troll?

True, but voting on a post that will be erased is not too effective either. There should be some other way to alert vroom of trolls which are inherently different than bad posts in the manner that trolls should be erased while a low rep post might bring up a misconception that everyone should be reading about. In that case, I would keep the misconception and scrap the troll even though they may have the same -- rep. Well, the trolls have so far few and far between trolls, so I'm not too worried, but I see it as a potentially serious problem (since it's just really easy...)

Update:I still have to disagree with you kudra. There really needs to be some better mechanism for dud posts. I'd rather help someone and ++ some worthy node. If you are also following the discussion above, you'll note that some other guys agree with me. I feel that -- some dud is probably going to take from a ++ or -- where it's really deserved. I guess I'm sayign that trolls are not really valid nodes, especially since they are soon to be deleted.

[Corion]: Do you want to launch a script and keep the command prompt/console window open?
[Corion]: Do you want to wait for a key press before closing the window?
[LanX]: I want the command line in the history
[tye]: -Mouse
[Corion]: Option a) would mean launching cmd.exe /k c:\path\to\ batchfile- launching-perl- script.cmd. Option b) would be to add pause as the last line of said batch file.
[LanX]: First day after holidays ... and already stressed by the fact that colleagues changed stuff without communication ... apparently I'm the only one trying to fight entropy
[Corion]: LanX: The command is always in the history if you typed it in before. If you didn't type the command into the command line, it will not be there. I think there is doskey which can stuff command lines into the history
