Apologies if this is the wrong place to raise discussion about filing a grievance with staff on disruptive users.

The user "B1tUnl0ck3r" appears to be shitting up the WO thread with some pretty off-topic and rather insane banter. Not sure what value they add to these forums.

Is there a way of dealing with low-quality trolls that are clearly unhinged, and foul this place up, beyond simply ignoring them ?

Asking only in the interest of cleaning this place up a bit.

The WO thread is not moderated the same as the rest of the forum, so he will probably not be banned for posts in WO.

I have noticed he has posted some garbage in the P&S sub, and have recently reported some of his threads.

You can have whoever is in charge of the WO thread to remove his posts, via automation.

Reporting such posts is the best option in my opinion, as moderators still has ambit within self mod topics and can act in cases of malware or spam, which directly breaks the forum rules and in this case also breaks the WO local rules.

You can have whoever is in charge of the WO thread to remove his posts, via automation.
Afaik, self mod option only allows users create local rules, but they can not override forum rules. So if a reply breaks such rules, you can report to mods and they would act on it. Allowing a single user moderate such a large thread is not quite efficient and if a reply breaks forum rules, mods would directly act on reports.

He's also opened quite a few threads in the Politics section.
It's seemed to me that he was drunk or something.
I suppose if he is reported a lot he will get at least a warning.

Isn't there a moderator exclusively only for the WO thread? or is it not the case anymore?

But yeah, reporting is the next best option. But goooood luck since WO is a hUGE thread, its gonna be annoying to find context for the mods in certain scenarios. Do-able, but annoying.

The user "B1tUnl0ck3r" appears to be shitting up the WO thread with some pretty off-topic and rather insane banter. Not sure what value they add to these forums.
Unfortunately, what he posts isn't considered as spam posts :/ His posts are comparatively better than the posts made by idiots in altcoin discussion. So yeah standards have reduced for deleting spam messaging, and also there is free speech on the forum so there is not much you as an individual can even do. Another option would be to press the ignore button on the user.

Afaik, self mod option only allows users create local rules, but they can not override forum rules.
Self-moderated thread owners can remove any post at their discretion.

Local rules are a separate topic: you usually designate them at the thread head to add moderator support instead of self-moderation, or when you are unable to make the thread self-moderated (e.g. Meta).
You can try to conflate them with a troll status but good luck getting someone banned for trolling. When's the last time that happened?

I'm quite aware of the distinction, I used local rules to imply the guidelines stipulated by thread starters when they make their post self moderated - hence rules that apply only within that thread.

A ban is certainly heavy and it takes a lot of trolling and spam posting to get the hammer, usually the post simply gets deleted which works fairly well at discouraging spammers, especially those who aren't financially motivated.

I just looked at B1tUnl0ck3r's post history, and yeah....a lot of his posts are just plain bizarre, to say the least.  Admittedly I'm just reading his posts out of whatever discussion context they were in, but some of them seem like they wouldn't make sense in any context whatsoever.

The guy's been around since 2016 so I don't think he's trying to pinch merits from the WO thread like some member do.  I've no explanation for the weirdness he's writing, but even though WO is a thread unto itself, there should be a "local" moderator who takes care of spam in that thread.  I know they don't want moderator interference (I remember some people getting very upset when a mod had deleted some posts in the WO thread a while back), but someone ought to have the power to nuke nonsensical/spam posts.  The ignore button only goes so far, you know.

I recognize the WO thread is practically a community unto itself on these forums, with infofront doing a great job moderating the thread.

The specific issue I have here, while directly pertaining to the WO thread, is a more general concern for what the user brings to the forums.

Fully recognizing and appreciating the free speech liberties we largely have on this site, I just wanted to shine the spotlight on a particularly bad apple I have noticed. I do not come across genuinely bad apples here very often, hence this thread and inquiry.

Bob has his frilly knickers in a twist? Where do you get off asking for people to be banned.
The entire WO thread is full of worthless banter and a bunch of weirdos giving each other merit reach arounds for posting crap.
I mean everytime I go there I have to read another worthless account of what you and you partner have been doing that day in the kitchen.

Sure report him to the idiot that moderates that thread but dont come crying for people to be banned.  Certainly not for posting on WO thread. That is the cesspool of the entire forum except meta. Hence why the regular rules dont even apply in that rat hole.

Look at the dishonest and directly financially dangerous miscreants  that you seem to miss are rotten eggs that are some of the most regular posters there. They should be banned way before this member.

Stop crying like a big girl because his weird is different to your weird.
If WO was like some hyper productive important discussion where he was being undeniably disruptive and causing identifiable harm then he could be banned from that thread after a warning. Banned from the forum no warning ?? Are sigs even paid on that thread? It is just one big banter from what I can see. With merits being cycled between pals for worthless nonsense.

 Can't stand cry baby snitchers. Posts can be removed if

Off topic and irrelevant, promulgating provably and conclusively debunked information as true aka trolling, or hate speech and physical threats. Report to mods.

Excessive repetition of any of those, then one could build a case if accompanied by corroborating evidence for a warning to be given.
That would really need to be a strong case that stood up to scrutiny not just because you didnt like the posts. They really need to clearly be off topic and irrelevant , promulgating provably....

Other than that hit the ignore button. Would be a boring and far less valuable forum if we all had to adopt the most popular views or all be merit cycling buddies on WO.  Worthless posts are usually the repetitive popularist regurgitated resource sapping sig spamming dangerously misleading posts DT pump out to be honest.

Can't stand cry baby snitchers.

First off, go fuck yourself with a long length of rusted pipe.

Secondly, I am only at the point of raising this issue, that, despite having the user Ignored, I am forced to see their inane material being quoted by other users, which is the final "seeing red" that led to the creation of this thread.

Thirdly, go fuck yourself again, but with a different length of rusted pipe; one that is at least 1" larger in diameter this time.

Try to get that type of thing out of your mind for a little while each day. Although that is a very good example of the invaluable output you're capable of producing all to often. Now roll on back over to WO to tell us what Rick is knitting for you today for you, for another 10 merits. No more snitching and crying to teacher today. Zero respect for cry baby wussies.

Go through the same process and review as everyone else. Off topic and irrelevant,  promulgating conclusively debunked information as true or Visa versa, or just suck it up. You're used to that anyway.
