Once upon a time I had a question concerning civ2 and posted it in the appropriate newsgroup. I got a short, but quite informative answer from Brian Reynolds. Back then there was A LOT less traffic, but also less bad wording and yelling. Less childlike (kindlich, nicht kindisch) behaviour, more a cooperative, friendly atmosphere. I am sad to say, I believe 'simply ignoring' IS the best option "they" have with hooligans running wild all over the place. I better stop, because I have problems expressing myself well in English (compared to what I'm able to say in german).
