    This is more of a suggestion to the good members here at Android Forums. As with any online forum, big or small, trolls will find their way in. Especially with the large influx of users AF has seen recently those numbers mount quickly.

    The staff here seems to do an ok job of combating this but sometimes their hands are tied. You see you can do a great job of trolling and never break a rule.

    That said, many of you probably know and if you do, here is a reminder, if you don't know, here is a tip.

    USE YOUR IGNORE LIST.

    Trolls feed off of attention, if you spot a troll trollin' they WANT you to call them out and argue. They want you to get so mad you get yourself banned, that is a win for them moreso then just making you angry and it does happen.

    So use your ignore list. It is a native part of our forum and works great. Simply go to your usercp from the link in the nav above and click the left menu for "edit ignore list" or CLICK HERE

    Then just type in the name of the person that is tick'n you off and *POOF*, they are gone....like magic.
