In a court of law, if you bring a case that is clearly a waste of the judges time you can be punished for it. Why isn't this the case with tribunal?
In a way, it is punished. If a player reports falsely too many times, their reports lose credibility, and if excessive enough, eventually mean nothing.
On a similar note, I think that if I'm reading a chatlog and think the person in question is far better behaved than the people who reported him than I should be able to report that person as well.
False reports are fairly rare on Tribunal, in my experience.
And then we hit on ANOTHER problem. Ambiguity in punishment systems.
If it frightens a troll, then I'm all for it.
