Hello marinersk

A long version of my reply would include an analysis which persons are causing the damage and speculating about their motivation beyond just trolling.

And I would talk about how the senior monks are underestimating the damage° because they don't see the "juniors" who silently avoid the monastery.*

The short version is that we have good mechanisms to handle named users, which fail with Anonymous Monks who "lost their marbles".

Hence I'd say some restrictions on censorship should be lifted in the case of AM , because realistically a real account would have been blocked or ignored already.

One possibility could be allowing janitors to  reap AM immediately, another lowering the threshold° for automatic reaps of AM, or a combination of both.

I also like the idea from Discipulus of a quality feed back by signaling the level of negative votes

Because a newbee might think otherwise this rude reply he got is normal and accepted here.

Instead of shrinking the font one could also grey it out successively.

In any case this must be well discussed , because any change of rules might ruin the game or open new exploits.

In the end it's a social not a technical problem...

My 2 cents. :)
