Dreamwidth doesn't have hellbanning (as much as I might sometimes like that feature).

And, come to think of it, the profile of the user who has banned the troll will possibly give away that information, if the troll has added the user to their circles, and the user displays the lists of non-mutual access and follows on their profile, because the troll won't be on those lists, as one of the features of banning suppresses that username from displaying on the profile. (The other user will still show up on the troll's profile.)

So I suppose you're probably right.

But a determined troll is probably going to escalate no matter what, and the more common case is probably more of a one-on-one disagreement situation where one of the parties may not have realized that they've stepped over the line, rather than there being thousands of trolls who will go out of their way to give their target a terrible time.
