    Why not add a "Chess Only" forum that would only be available to subscribers. Seems like this would keep most of the trolls out of the forum and help keep the posts on topic. Most of the inflammatory remarks seem to come from certain non subs. Plus, if the subscriber only forum is popular enough it will encourage more people to subscribe.

    It would appear a good idea as long as the non-subs still have the ability to read it but unable to post on it.

    There is indeed a "Only Chess" forum already!

    Why deprive both subs and non-subs of the good posts by non-subs? Trolls are a problem, but let's not throw out the baby with the bath water.

    We wouldn't be getting rid of any of the existing forums. There will still be an "Only Chess" forum for everyone to use. The idea is to create an additional forum for subscribers.

    Would you really get rid of the troll problem?
    Actually, the Trolls/Subs ratio is much higher than you might think...

    There are subscriber only forums available.

    However they are only for pre-selected subsscribers.

    From your profile page I can see you are not one of the pre-selected subscribers.

    Is a group of pre-selected subscribers called a 'clan' ?

    Show us a good post by a non-sub then. I haven't seen any lately.

    What's up with the "shaking foot/face/fingers/belly with a bloody background" avatars?

    I'm having bad dreams of them.
