I truly value LWN and would hate to see it degraded by trolls OR poorly implemented troll-prevention measures.
Perhaps the best solution is to let the readers decide... for themselves, individually.
Add a checkbox to each post-block that reads "block this poster."
This way, readers could individually screen out posters that are trolls, they disagree with, dress funny, etc:
Another advantage for this model is that it avoids the liability issue for LWN.
