The problem as I see it is that it's to easy to just vote someone away.
One abusive post doesn't make a troll. Neither does an abusive thread. That could be just a bad day, or being drunk of course.

Several abusive threads on the other hand might.
So one possible way to handle the whole business is to make the "Vote to remove" button in the message, into a dropdown called "Report", having the choices of "Remove message", "Report abuse", <edit>Vote to move thread to backroom, "</edit>"Report troll" and "Report spam". Thereby making it possible to track bad behaviour in more than one dimension.

Well, "Remove message" would still be on just that message.

But the other choices would be checked against quality of reputation. Which could be measured by (upvotes - downvotes)/messagecount.
Or something similar. I'm pretty sure there are much more refined ways to make such a calculation.

If it's the first message it would of course render an immediate nuke of this user.
But if it is someone that's been around for a while it would take more messages and more threads to remove a user.

Just a thought.
