trolling attack threads

There were 2 personal attack / trolling threads created by the user JasmineTHEdude this morning. The one in the micro heli forum was removed. But the one in the electric heli forum the comment was only collapsed with the "show it to me anyway" button.
Why not just delete those type of comments period, since they serve no useful purpose at all?
And does this forum only ban names or email addresses or ban the IP address?

We don't delete posts but a moderator may decide to put that troll post in the Bit Bucket.
The user was banned for creating a troll account. HIs other troll accounts were also banned.
When a user is banned the user name and associated email address is banned as well.
While banning IPs worked in the past, it is easier to get around these days.
If you see any posts like this in the future please report them and we will look into the issue.
Thanks for the post.
