Deleted Level 7 accounts should not return as Level 7
Please someone explain how this even happens? Here's a dozen troll accounts that have been deleted over and over, but are still Level 7.
Level 7 Trolls
Randy the Atheist
Lord Bearclaw of Gryphon Woods
A Nonny Mouse
Lighting the Way to Reality
Broton (level 6)
Everard (level 6)
Battling trolls in R&S for years, but the same ones keep returning, some use the same User Name over and over, admitting they've lost dozens of accounts. @Shadowfire bragged he lost 10 accounts in one week. Some are able to come back with Level 7! How is that possible?
YA Team knows who these trolls are by their IP. Is there no way to restrict them and stop this growing madness? If an IP loses several accounts don't you think it's time to stop them? They are destroying your forum, burning us out.
It's not my job to keep track of the revolving door of trolls and who has control of which sock puppet, or within my ability. Only YA Team can do that.
Do you assign Moderator Accounts? How do we gain knowledge on how to deal with these disgusting trolls ourselves? Reporting a User hundreds of times does nothing, check my Reporting statistics; it's the same users over and over. Either they go or we go, it's just that simple.

@Daddy thank you for your comments.
A "troll" is someone creating discord, starting quarrels, upsetting people by posting inflammatory or off-topic messages. He purposely says something controversial in order to get a rise out of other users. Rarely do they even bother to answer the question.
A troll is not interested in truth or knowledge or contributing.
A troll is someone that posts irrelevant, pointless comments or blame and denial on many answers w/o support.
A troll is only here to provoke, obfuscate, desecrate, defecate, and violate.
A troll uses obsolete information (unsupported opinion) to disagree. A troll is only here to insert doubt and confusion.
A troll is here to insert as many un-Godly words as possible, to insert the thoughts of dark powers and evil. They are only here to drag you down to their level of ignorance and bigotry. They don't care about ANY truthful answer because they are only here to mock. Why waste time beating your head against the wall; delete them.
A troll is generally irrelevant to the question or answer, just here to blame and tell everyone how wrong they are w/o support or the "right" answer according to them.
A troll is only here to proclaim everyone/anyone that believes in God is an idiot.
A troll is only here to deny, not inform. A troll is an insult to true knowledge.
A troll has no responsibility to truth whatsoever, in fact it is their mission to turn truth upside down until it is unrecognizable.
Because they disagree with me or my belief has nothing to do with it. If you can support what you say, I'm willing to listen, converse, and admit I'm wrong, but a troll does not have any support for what they say; it's just meaningless garbage intended to disrupt unity, deny, blame, bait and obfuscate.
All of these things apply to every name on this list repeatedly, exhaustingly, exceeding harassment, more like stalking.
These people would not still be standing on the street, why are they still here?
YA R&S has a troll in the number one spot of our leaderboard: @Nous, put there by other trolls and numerous sock puppet accounts; elected by saying anything/everything negative about Christianity. He is a denier, intentional liar with a mission to destroy anything Christian.
Is it the mission of YA to enable "destroyers" of what most of us are trying to do here? Can you not stop them? We certainly cannot, thus a troll as #1. Just an example, really don't care who is on top or who wins or even who is right, but truth is being overshadowed by lies incessantly. Take a close look, every truth is being denied, blamed, confused, and it's always someone else's fault other than the troll. Only the troll "knows" anything at all, but can't tell you what the truth is.
This is truly insanity to allow this to continue, or to be part of it. We work hard to gain Level 7. But these trolls somehow camp out there. How does one ALWAYS have a Level 7 account after being deleted a hundred times.
I used to be able to identify a troll by their Level 1 status, because their account had been deleted. But now they are able to maintain Level 7 in perpetuity. How is this possible?

Yahoo! treats the most important subject to the most people in the world, faith and religion, with less care than they treat questions about cars and pets. They have mishandled religion for many years and I do not see any indication it will change.
I have interacted with most of the names you listed at one time or another. Just because a person disagrees with our faith does not make them a "troll". In fact calling people trolls is a slur preferred by people who like to dehumanize others.
But I agree with your opinion of how they go easy on repeat abusers. They honestly have the right to protect their property to the level of the legal system. Repeat abusers are like shoplifters and vandals. They are driving down the stock price and can be sued or even arrested for anything deemed as damaging to the company.
I'll second this........and would like to add the POLITICAL board TROLLS who have been suspended dozens of times for STALKING and HARRASSMENT but operate so MANY sock puppet accounts here, taking ONE down, still Leaves them with 49 operating accounts. I have reported the same troll , Repeatedly, Ad NASEUM, since Jan. of 2016. He flagrantly breaks the rules, BRAGS about his stalking, his BIO page BRAGS about harrassing other users.... and every time he's suspended......he comes right back 5 minutes later , by switching over to one of his many MANY, other accounts and the abuse just continues, and continues and continues.
If you suspend an account for HARRASSMENT........you need to SUSPEND ***ALLLL*** the accounts from that address. ALL of them. Because it isn't 5 or 7 or 10 people in the same house, or address.....it's ONE sick , deranged person, operating MANY accounts here, to stalk and harrass other users. The user NINEFINGER has been suspended countless times, and he's still posting to this day.

Ah, thank you, just added him because he came back with a vengeance, posting errant opinion on every answer to a question.
Can't edit now but would like to add "antonius"--has to comment in every little box on everybody's answer, pointless often disgusting., reported hundreds of times, keeps coming back Level 7. How is that possible?
Bluebellbkk is not a troll and I don't recognise the other ones
