I don't know if I'm crazy but it seems like there has been an increase in the number of unsubstantiated and idiotic posts lately. While sometimes I do find them entertaining in a Real House Wives of NJ kind of way they do not live up to the quality of what I expect at OTM.
I know that other SB nation blogs have the 24 hour wait period to post after signing up to the blog. This can't hurt, and can only help OTM. See Peter Osgoods Theo fantpost for case in point.
Indeed it won't completely eliminate the problem, but if the the troll really has the urge to troll at that point in time they will move on and probably leave OTM alone.
Just my two cents.
