Inspired by igorw and his Troll MOD for phpBB 3.0. I was able to find a backup of the code from that MOD and am currently working to convert it to an extension.

This will make trolls miserable. I like the idea and the tactics behind this already. :D

Edit: Just a quick question though. How will users be marked? Will it just be a box tick in the Administer User section of the ACP, or will there be a usergroup that does this?

You mark a user as a troll and it will set a cookie for the user.
