  2. Eliminate the block option. I understand the frustration of dealing with stalkers and trolls, remove those accounts.

    Frustration with trolls, stalkers and that immature is certainly real. But their existence degrades the experience. Rather than block them, silply eliminate them.

  5. Just close answers.

    Just close the site and let it die peacefully or do something to make it better. Trolls are everywhere and answers seems to be encouraging them.
