We have now already more reaped nodes in 2017 than in 2016.

More of the reaped ones in 2017 till now were marked "troll" than between 2011 and 2016.

    Even if we blithely assume that this means there are more trolls today than a year ago, it seems unlikely that a rule restricting them to trolling only in SOPW would do anything to change that. I can see the OP's suggestion, if implemented, maybe doing a bit to cut down on posts to the wrong section (...which itself assumes that most AnonyMonk posts are the sort of thing that belongs in SOPW), but that's about it. The content of the posts would still be exactly the same.

    Sometimes I wonder if I'm merely an insensitive pig...

    ... or whether we gotten a lot more PC, and a lot more touchy.

    Frankly, had I been around and had more time to spend here, over the last several week, I most assuredly would have voted "Keep" on some of the nodes which have recently been considered and reaped.

    Princess and the Pea, anyone?

      I think we are living in a time where political correctness gets "redefined", especially in the English speaking world.

      But while the maximo leader from Mar-a-Lago is using at least his own twitter account to spread his "charming" insights, we are confronted here with regulars (with IMHO pretty obvious mental problems) who ride rude attacks, while cowardly hiding in the dark as AnoMonk.

      Not opposing this - especially when they single out one "target" after the other - will consequently lead to a loss of good contributers and hence to a decline of the monastery.

      I hope my POV is clearer now, of course YMMV.

      ) I'll use an anonymous account to insult you later. ;)

        But why worry about rude attacks from AM? Do they harm you; your kids; your relationships; or your future?

        And did you drop a word of phrase in the para beginning "(n)ot opposing ...?" Perhaps a pronoun referring to the OP's proposal? Pls clarify: what are you "(n)ot opposing?". You can even do so in the anonymous insult, if you wish.1.

    And what is that supposed to prove? More trolls? Nope, just more of them were reaped. And the question of wether anons should be blocked has been asked and answered often enough, sundialsvc4.
      Not more trolls, always the same. Jeff. :)
