I'd like to second jamienk's filtering proposal. Having a "killfile" link won't do anything to keep spammers and trolls from posting, of course, but this way you'd only have to see it once. It also has the benefit of allowing non-subscribers to continue posting, which I feel is important (note: I subscribe to lwn). Not everyone who has something of value to say can afford to subscribe, and we as lwn readers are diminished if their voices are silenced.
