It would certainly help.<quoted text>
I personally think that to require someone to register with Topix before being able to participate other than reading posts would be a good start.
my question is how is it that Beliefnet. Which larger and has a larger community is able to control and keep the troll down to a dull roar..
Yet, I am told here on Topix that level of control is not possible..
Either Beliefnet is not real or someone on topix is lying..
But then beleifnet is about a community of all kinds religion, philosophies and is ad driven.. With a small amount of news thrown in..
Topix add driven a lot of news thrown in. With people from all kinds of religions and philosophies posting together.
The difference seems to be that topix has more news thrown in. Why that should make a difference is beyond me. That seems to be salient point. A minor point as I might think it is in reality. but that seems to be topix position.
