3. First Of All It's 'They're'...

The contraction of 'they are' (as opposed to 'their', the possessive pronoun or 'there' which refers to the opposite of 'here').

Secondly, there (also used as a pronoun introducing a sentence or clause) is a dedicated group of long-time DU'ers, called MIRT, that spend a great deal of time reviewing new posters to weed out returnees and trolls, as well as site administrators that do a great deal to control who has access to post on this site.

If you suspect someone of returning here to cause trouble it would probably be a better idea to send a PM to a MIRT member or to an Admin than to start a thread about your concern.
