The Truth Really Is Stranger Than Fiction

Over the past few days there have been a flood of posts by obvious trolls. They were reported to the admins.

Earlier today, posts appeared attributed to the admins saying that the IPs of those trolls had been blocked.

After emailing the admins to thank them for their response, I received a reply that those posts were NOT sent by the admins, and that they were fake.

There's really only one reason to troll this site, and it's pretty clear, at least to me, what the intent is and who is responsible.

Thank you, admins, for your prompt response and action. This site is a valuable resource, and needs to be protected from this kind of despicable behavior.
