I thought troll hunting was going to be deleted?

And I though saying "reported" on a thread was tantamount to troll hunting.


Has loads of troll hunting initially, and none was deleted, despite MNHQ posting on thread confused

Could MNHQ clarify? Is on thread troll-hunting to be left to stand, or should it be reported and removed?

You would have to report the post first OP before mn even know about it. Have you reported any posts on that thread?

The Op was reported as were troll hunting posts. MNHQ obviously aware as they posted a reminder about troll hunting guidelines on thread. In email to me said they would "let the [troll hunting] posts stand for now"

I didn't think saying 'reported' was troll hunting?
I've reported a couple over the years and put this on the thread to alert other readers that it's already been reported to save them doing so.

Of course its troll hunting. Its posting on the thread that you don't think the OP is legit.

No, it's informing other posters that I suspect things may be not as they seem so am alerting MN to that fact. Not just in regard to Trolling either, sometimes in regard to nastiness or language that is beyond the pale.

It needn't be done nastily, just raising awareness.
