Some of the other forums I visit (non-tech) have a specific forum where members can go and handle issues they have with other members, site owners, etc. These forums have 1 rule. No racist words. You can flame anyone for any reason. This is the place for trolls to hang out and do what they do.

Consider starting a Pit here and moving threads that get out of control there. Let the members settle their differences there.

I have to say that the pit forums I visit ALWAYS have the most witty posters on the site. These people are truly gifted at flaming people and dealing with trolls.
We talked about this a while back and it's come up a couple times since by members like yourself suggesting it..

We've decided against because it would invite people to be rude everywhere since they'd think the worst that would happen is it would get moved to said area.

We decided to continue to just tell people to take it to PMs.

It is, however, still something we think and occasionally talk about so its not a solid "NO!" but.. there are no plans at this moment.
