Shame on trolls

My comment was not aimed at you, a number of folks have posted 
requests to enlist supporters, researchers, funders, for their 
projects. A few have repeated the tequests for many months, became 
irate and accusatory at lack of response. Might wonder if the aim 
is/was to grab free work, or proselitize for an ideology, overcome 
loneliness and isolation, front for others, or to just fuck with 
somebody. All these have been happening on cpunks since its earliest 
days. Lack of moderation allows that abuse or promise. Promises have 
sometimes come true. Moderation never delivers on promises, usually 
suppresses them as off-topic or calling them trolls..
