Mumsnet has a group of volunteers called The Nightwatch.
Posters report obvious troll threads to them on the Nightwatch forum.
And I mean really obvious ones, like the one that we currently have on here about plastic phalli.
The Nightwatch folk are able to hide the thread, and then the next day, the moderators look at it and more often than not delete it.
I remember about four or five years ago MN was inundated with nocturnal trolls (probably one person) -they’d create up to about 40 threads at a time, constantly changing name.
Some were really horrible and involved child abuse.
I believe that the police were bought in to deal with the individual/s.
GN are much more fortunate troll wise, but if they do migrate to over here - can we report to Nightwatch?
(I’ll report this post to see what HQ say)
