I enjoy this site a lot and have direct many of my friends and new beekeepers to the site for its great information. Moderators have a tough job, I was one for a while and wouldn't do it again.
For the most part this site is civil and informative however, i think a lot of us here don't recognize a troll when we see one. A troll is someone who is looking for attention and will do or say anything to get it. Post inflammatory comments, absurd ideas etc. Reaction is what they are looking for, ignore them and they go looking elsewhere, which would make the moderators job a lot easier.
Assume most posts are genuine but when you see someone post a question, silly or not, and then try to start an argument with whoever answers your troll radar should come out and the ignore button be pushed, admittedly some of the threads are entertaining but in the end they almost always go too far and people are offended and the site could end up losing a member that is actually contributing good information...
My two cents
