    Top 25 posts Infection Rate 9.64%
    Total thread infection Rate 6.83%

    So while I rather not post on bitcointalk any more, I still visit it often because you lot are always there and it seems to be more and more infected lately. So I crawled the last three weeks and calculated what percentage of total posts are obvious trolls and divide this by total posts. So we now are officially at 6.83% infections rate.

    well, 6% is not so bad.

    The solution might indeed be to ingnore, and to not engage the trols.

    It doubles their presence, it doesn't double their effectiveness. Those are not the same thing.

    When I was slaughtering trolls, and Xcoin, I mean Darkcoin, I mean whatever, was still complete crap, it was pushing $12. Debunking them, with a quote, does work.

    And having the sack to man the harpoons, put my money where my mouth is, certainly didn't hurt.

    Fair enough it doubles their exposure then and as much as I enjoyed your harpooning the trolls, aren't those same trolls still squatting over the thread?

    Edit- Realized crawler failed me redid the numbers below

    Okay here are the numbers 28/10/15

    So the infection rate has increased to 9% or is a third larger. Meaning roughly one in 8 posts will be troll or troll related and some trolls are more successful than others. Interesting note Smooth has been quoted more times than eduffield.

    Nice graph. Ignoring the trolls and keeping the discussion amongst ourselves and other "respectful" posters is the way to go.

    EDIT: mprep is taking a machete to the thread this evening. Over 30 pages gone!

    Fascinatingly Trolls quoted people in 100% of thier posts, perhaps to make ti seem like they are being engaged or to induce a response?

    I didn't realize there is an international no trolls day, but is this like a national no smoking day where everybody ignores it ?!

    I think the reporting's had an effect, I've been reporting absolutely everything they've posted that looks like FUD (ie. practically everything) and I think a few others have been doing the same, not nice for the mods but it gives them a taste of what we've been suffering there and it's not us spamming posts. They seem to be having a crackdown at the mo so that could be helping, apparently the spambots have gone ballistic on BCT and they're on a deleting spree.
