This would be practically impossible since there are just so many. People wouldn't stop making them and then the admins would just have to have hours more work just to go through all of the reported debates to look for troll debates and then they have to review them and decide whether or not they should be deleted.

Yeah, so my idea is that the debates that are removed my customer support, we do that.

But there are so many and it would take up a lot of time and therefore the mods would find it very difficult to actually do anything other than review and look over debates.

Who? Not a lot of people would be willing to waste their time to look over hundreds of reported troll debates and then review and decide to look over them.

The mods do not get paid for what they do. It is voluntary.

Also, trolls make up quite a large percentage of the active members on DDO at the moment. If we were to ban all troll debates then they would most likely lose - thus, lowering DDO site activity significantly.

So, you're suggesting that Juggle use so much money, gain no profit whatsoever, employ more workers and entirely change the way it's organization works so that your internet service isn't wasted?

There's no real point to banning troll debates. In a "troll debate," both debaters mutually accept that it's going to be a joke debate, and judges can vote as they please. Nobody asks you to read troll debates; it's your fault if you read them, not the fault of the people who troll. Apply the harm principle -- they don't harm anyone, and are just enjoying themselves. It's just an impractical, useless suggestion.

Some troll debates do get banned. If people make topics like "xcfcvhukjfcbiug" it can get removed.

That isn't a troll debate. It's blatant spamming.
