Dear Mod Team:
Soon after I began posting here, I had the misfortune of encountering the transphobic troll “Manchelle,” a troll who needs no introduction.
After briefly engaging with this “thing,” I blocked it as it has no redeeming qualities and exists solely to derail discussions. Other posters share these sentiments.
But, I ask that you consider permanently banning this troll for the following reasons:
- Violation of the Rules of Engagement
First, this troll’s avatar is transphobic. It is a doctored picture of Michelle Obama adorned with facial hair. While the Rules allow mocking a public figure, the use is this image is disallowed as mocking a public figure must not be done in a “transphobic” manner. The word “manchelle” is a blatant dog while to transphobia as merely Googling the word “manchelle” and searching through images reveals disgusting transphobic content. Check this link for examples:
While this troll thinks it’s just being politically incorrect and playing adolescent games, its avatar and posts are flagrant violations of the Rules.
2. Harassment of Mods and Posters
After blocking this troll, it kept trying to “follow” me on Disqus. I deleted at least 6 such attempts. And, it even responds to my posts despite the fact that I’ve blocked it. It’s done this to other posters. Reporting this behavior to Disqus is futile.
More concerning than that is its engagement with a poster named “Kersey, Paul Kersey.” This troll had this exchange with Kersey about TR9, whom Kersey threatened to dox:
