How should trolls on HP be punished?


We've all seen it, trolls voting down nearly every/every answer to a question when the answers clearly add to the discussion. Shouldn't there be a limit on how many answers to a single question a single hubber can vote down?

    I often disagree with others but I never vote them down because usually they are adding their opinion or experience to the discussion. Trolling only provides a negative experience for those who are truly trying to enjoy lively discussions here.

    I've been on many forums and they won't just go away unless they are made to go away. They are like children.

    That sounds like a great idea, they have nothing to add to the discussion, just take away from those that do.

    Good answer, if the avatar of those voting answers down answers was displayed that would be a nice deterrent and going one step further requiring them to comment on why they voted down would end trolling on HP.

    Why is the technology not being put to use. You said it best "To a troll it is a silly game. This isn't a game site."

    I misunderstood the question and wrote an answer on trolls on the forum. Those people need to be ignored as they want power. Maybe the same answer if they keep voting down answers for no good reason.

    This is a problem and as long as the trolls are allowed to hide, their negative behavior that doesn't contribute to discussions will continue or get worse. I know others who also are being stalked only to be voted down & harassed.
