in reply to Limiting Spam posts, Trolls, Joe Jobs and other maleficence

By implementing such a mechanism, we would be removing a learning opportunity for the community of non-trolls who've not yet had the experience of dealing effectively with trolls. Compared with other on-line communities, Perlmonks is actually rather good about dealing with trolls, and we're also good about coaching people on how to deal with trolls. Sadly, we also occassionaly model ineffective troll-countering behavior, but that too can be educational.
