Nothing wrong with that. I also would say that if you are a "rubber stamp" for the school then a message board might not be the place for you.

    I do not think it’s the opinions themselves, but the way they are presented.

    Every public forum where identities are disguised will produce trolls, people who enjoy provoking other people just for the fun of it. Almost by definition, a troll doesn't really have anything interesting to say, they are just seeking attention. Blocking them is the ideal response.

    Unlike Facebook, where blocking a user prevents any post from showing up on your feed, blocking a poster on Gsufans will produce a notification each time the person posts, saying a post has been blocked. You are given the option of viewing the post if you want to.

    Yes, along with the unfounded personal digs.

    I used to think you'd eliminate that by making people put their real names, but the Facebook group just rips that theory up.
