What to do about obvious trolls? Is this what the "report" button is for?
I don't want to single anyone out, because, in my opinion, the problem is endemic, but here is but a couple of examples:
Anyone even remotely familiar with Soviet history knows that Stalin grew up in Georgia. BBC even had a documentary that mocked his accent, when he spoke Russian. This person not only lied about it, but made up a fake fact that he was from Moscow. The 4 people who upvoted this were probably sock puppets.
"Are Americans More Obsessed With the Military Aspect of History? If so, why?"
This was at +11 until recently. The question is unsourced, silly, perpetuates a negative stereotype about an ethnic group, and completely off-topic. Clicking on the poster's profile, I see he's a self-proclaimed communist/socialist/Maxist (Which I find hard to believe, in this day and age, given how dystopian all of the many Marxist countries got, so I'm thinking it's a toll account too).
Should we do anything about the troll problem?
P.S. My point is that this SE section has very unreliable content. If you read it, you might be learning something new, but more often than not, you are just reading some made up facts that got upvoted either by sock puppets, trolls, or people who didn't know very much. The fact that you chose to downvote me to try to sweep this under the rug instead of acknowledging and addressing the problem speaks volumes.
