...and more then moved on to the forum post above, when I later decided to deactivate his account, which in retrospect looks to have been an even better decision for devtome but demands some suffering (or ignoring) in the thread.

Definitely the lesser of two evils, since this avoids further dilution of generation shares. Plus, now that the new devcoin thread is moderated and I think 90% of us have the troll on ignore, it's a very minor annoyance  :)




Now, back to the matter at hand, what if there were some sort of reward tied to helping "clean up" the wiki? There would be the potential for abuse that we would have to account for (ie: what would prevent a spammer/scammer from marking everything for deletion?) but it would provide some further motivation for the average user to help keep things tidier on the wiki. Furthermore, anything marked for deletion would be exempt from the wordcount for the latest generation shares, which would help stop drivel if users can respond fast enough.

Just one idea, of course, and not yet very fleshed out...but coupled with EmilianoZ's thoughts it could provide an effective deterrent for writing garbage.

I just read some of that diary and I can't believe someone would post such personal stuff.  But yeah, I also can't imagine anyone googling anything in that entire write up for any reason.

On drivel, in case anybody's wondering about the troll on the devcoin thread at bct, it relates to an exchange here:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=210446.msg2441690#msg2441690 and similar via pm.

The writing sample was...

"I bet I can write for days! What I need is someone to sit here and write everything down I say, kinda like Hunter S. Thompson or Jack K...ha you know who. Well If I start talking about pennystocks and kool-aid touters~ it's all over! I'll attempt to not make you feel too bad. You expect to make it in this crazy game youse gotta due your homework! What I need is for Yoshitoshi to build is a proper level two quoting system for all nucoins. ...iz good idearrr?
*speaL cheek'dd*"

...response was a dazed but pretty reasonable "Hi. Not quite sure what that was mate, you can't just write drivel. Me and others do read and check through submissions to devtome and can just remove articles that add zero value. But I have activated your account to enable you to be a writer in the wiki, so good luck with your articles. Any more questions please feel free to ask."
 
Followed by "drivel? "  do you know who you are talking to?lol  >>>what country are you posting from? so you are censoring based on just what YOU feel is useful? wtf"

...and more then moved on to the forum post above, when I later decided to deactivate his account, which in retrospect looks to have been an even better decision for devtome but demands some suffering (or ignoring) in the thread.

Lol, I never knew this is what set that guy off.  Cause of him we had to move our entire thread.  I thought he was mad cause he couldn't get logged in.  Lol, good move on that guy.  It sucks to have to ban anyone cause that's not what devtome stands for but that guy was nuts.

Yeah as there money involved... and not small amounts, we can expect there to be many more who try to take advantage and claim lots of devcoins, money tends to bring all kinds out of the woodwork!!
