Can Disqus Defeat Trolls?

Political blogs inevitably will attract trolls. In an effort to deal with them, I've installed DISQUS (pronounced discuss) as a new comment system for future posts on this blog.

If a troll posts something offensive, and five of you flag it, it will be invisible to everyone but the troll. In addition, I can filter out some of the stock offensive phrases that detract from meaningful and intelligent discussion.

Let me know what you think.
