Who does it look like was dissuaded from posting in threads like the again....people trolling the thread or people posting valuable non-mainstream content? Trolls got a "don't do it again or else....I'll say don't do it again or else next time too!" The other side got "if I post about the biggest win in Women's basketball in years I'm going to not only get people trolling the thread, but taking credit for the thread's success." Eventually there has to be consequences for repeat performances, or the wrong type. Of people are going to ignore the site.
BTW, congrats ladies.
