    Maybe I should delete the posts that show how to defeat the restrictions?

    very much. there, that's 5 glad to see you are trying to limit troll problems. that's what made the espn Packer message board unusable, 1 troll with dozens of screen names.

    yes, but the trolls quickly found a way to spam bomb the boards.....by voting on old polls

    Cool. in the early 2000's that board was all Packers, all the time. then the trolls took over, & i've been looking for a new home for several years. I found this by googling "packer forum"

    Couldn`t a small fee be introduced to join, maybe something like $5 or something ? That would discourage trolls from making many names ?
    Despite recent "problems", I`d be prepared to pay a small fee to continue on the forum. Just saying !

    Probably changes the rules under which the board operates.

    Maybe I'm different sometimes I find value in what supporters of other teams have to say. Sometimes you can be too much in the bubble to see some weak spots in a team. Often you learn from a loss than win sometimes.

    New to this site. I'm a Packer shareholder, not a troll or spammer. Is there some type of requirement in order to join the chat room? It tells me invalid username or password even though I'm signed in.

    Thanks....

    Seems mostly the trolls that go around here are the Mike McCarthy complainers. Lol jk, no I know, everyone's free to have an opinion on a coach or player within the rules, but it just baffles me how much complaining about him I have seen on multiple Packer forums I've been to. I don't think I've ever seen as much complaining from the home fans about one of the winningest head coaches in all of football as I've seen about MM and it's silly.
