Strongly disagree.

I want an ASF that grows communities.

This is not to be accomplished by giving trolls and poisonous people
an unchecked playground to perform whatever mischief satisfies
whatever internal urge they have.  And to tell the targets of this
individual to just ignore it.

I provided a link previously describing an experience I had.  I hope
that you can appreciate that "just ignore it" was not the right advice
for that situation.
