To prevent mistakes, keep an eye on ID's. Get to know your fellow Palinites ID's. If there is a number in it, notice if the numbers have been changed. If there is an underscore and suddenly a dash appears etc. Or if the name is misspelled.

Again just ignore them and use a little Internet Security and common sense. This, way, no worries, mistakes and we know who we are speaking with.

Emphasis on the word "ignore". Don't even respond to their messages on here and in the chatroom. Even if they're being completely rude and vulgar, just ignore them. That especially means don't spit something back if they say something mean to you. I know it's tempting to say a witty comeback, but resist! It just tells them that we're listening.

They can be as pompous and arrogant as they possibly can, but if they're ignored, they'll have no point in being arrogant.

Where's Webmaster of late? You'd think he/she would have cleaned up some of the rubbish that's appeared here by now. Maybe he/she went on holiday with MP?

I think it's more our job to ignore them. The webbie can't be here 24/7, making sure trolls aren't being jerks to us.

I am new to this board and sad to think that some people do things to hurt others!!

have you tried e mailing webmaster to ask that he/she blocks identities that are too similar to others that already exist - sort of a petition from you all? might help?
