The following proposal for the chat has been passed by Staff with the understanding that it is to be interpreted in the spirit with which it was written.
The Pest Troll Measure: Often, you will find that somebody is being incredibly annoying. They might not flame, or post inappropriate content, but their actions will fall just outside of the ground of borderline spam and borderline trolling. I propose that the following definition should expand our definition of trolling: A Pest Troll is a user who posts comments frequently, often with a common theme. To qualify the user as a pest troll, the comments must be intended to irritate in some way. The comments must also be made frequently enough to cause agitation of a greater degree than simply posting these comments alone. Pest Trolls will often manage to cause as much irritation as a Troll or Spammer, while also evading being banned with the argument that their comments are not flamey enough to deserve the title of Trolling, nor frequent and repetitive enough to deserve the mark of Spam.
