Curious about what the policy is here. It is obviously at its worst during Free Agency, but some of the troll accounts from over the Summer continue to be posted here spreading misinformation. I’ve reported them when I see them but never get a response and the posts containing the tweets remain up there for everyone to see.

In the Political Thread, if anyone posts false info it is met with swift action. The link is taken down quickly and the user is either warned or suspended. I am sure that is an easier thread to manage than a monstrous FA Lounge thread, but it seems even reported posts there take much longer to address if they ever get addressed at all. As an example, the infamous “IGotSources” account continued to get posted (and reposted/quoted multiple times) throughout the summer long after they were revealed to be fraudulent. RDA Ambition continues to be posted here spreading fake information without recourse. Posters who read the thread but aren’t caught up on who is or isn’t a fraud doesn’t know they’re reading fake info.

We can probably do a word censor to swap that name out with some "TROLL SOURCE" or something if we've vetted them.
