Disclaimer: I don't have 'trolldar' and tend to take OPs at face value

I repeatedly see troll hunting on threads, particularly those where OP is a first time poster or has undergone a name change. Or when a man has the effrontery to start a thread. I report and Mumsnet deletes the offending posts.

However, are any sanctions applied by MNHQ other than deleting posts? Reason I ask = it often seems to be the same names that are calling troll. Is there anything like three troll hunts and you're suspended?

Or is troll hunting not sufficiently egregious to require a sanction?

Hi there, Aridane!

Thanks so much for flagging this.

We do take action against troll hunting - though, as ever, it's done on a case-by-case basis. If a user persisted to troll hunt then we would take further action.

If there's anything you think we are missing, please do report to us! We're always more than happy to take a look.
