CdA Press Online Boots Trolls

We could point to the number of complaints readers of have registered against obnoxious comments and those who write them, but we won't. We could argue that page views of online comments, one source of funding that allows us to offer readership of free, has dropped because of the obnoxious comments and those who write them. But we won't do that, either. Instead, we will admit that Press administrators have banned about a dozen frequent commenters from posting their thoughts on because we can no longer stomach the vile nature of their postings, from gut-wrenchingly racist remarks to thinly veiled threats of public officials/Coeur d'Alene Press Editorial Board. More here.

DFO: H/T to Editor Mike Patrick for making this call.

Question: Do trolls add anything to the online comment mix?
