Sysops are trolls
If sysops are trolls using technological escalation and group vandalism to make up for lacks in their trolling skills, then, countermeasures must be taken to prevent this group from dominating discourse and imposing a Sysop Vandal point of view. So far, this is the neutral point of view.
From the New Troll point of view, however, sysop vandalism is not troll vandalism since it uses technological escalation, while trolls do not allow such escalation but insist on equal power relationships.
