Please resize your troll, it’s over fed.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

Trolls are what comes out of a pod when good people go to sleep.

I just found this great plugin to remove troll posts on youtube called Hide fedora

It works great really great to cleanup the cesspool that youtube comment section have turn it to lately, just add some of the most annoying posts in the block list if the server block list haven’t blocked that troll user already, like for example all troll “who are watching this in……..bla bla december” idiots who copy and paste large aschii art posts all over the comment sections.
Just add watching for example or a part of that ascii art and you will never have to see one of those again :bigsmile:

EDIT
I wish we could block users here actually, not just from messaging us but from seeing there posts also.
Fortunately the worst offenders have already been banned, but that can take a while sometimes before a new troll screw up so bad he gets banned, and it would be great to just be able not see there posts at all when we have had enough.

That would also help those who really dislike some of the commercial parts and users here, they could just block all those users they don’t want to do business with anyway, and not have to see them everywhere Smile

Now to be a Troll first and foremost

One must find out what angers the most

Make a thread go astray

In a horrible way

Inject venom into every post

 

You pretend to be really engrossed

Then put up a sarcastic riposte

When their wrath they betray

You are well on your way

In the coals of their anger they'll roast

 

Of your Trollery soon you can boast

You've disrupted things to the utmost

At the end of the day

You can then proudly say

That your work is all done

 

Well , almost ....

Time for another bump I guess. Entertaining oneself by picking fights, making up gossip to throw at others, or escalating insults is just some of the behavior we need to be avoiding by request of the management as well as being the best way to remain a cohesive community. If you feel this is directed at you then it probably is so take heed huh?

Has this been happening recently ? If so, I’ve missed it.
The last flame war I recall was the infamous 30q thread of not-too-long-ago.

I take it you didn’t participate in the Cometa group buy…? Silly

Two threads closed so far. Personally I think this place could use a couple of moderators and an ignore-user feature.

Whats wrong with the moderator we have now. If you have any issues PM him as he has requested and the problems are dealt with.

 

djozz quotes, "it came with chinese lettering that is chinese to me".

Nothing wrong at all, but perhaps he could use a bit of help? If you have more than one, they can discuss issues in a group and be around a bit more (as I guess sb isn’t here 24/7). Obviously this is totally up to him, it’s his forum after all. I would like a Cometa thread (as mine finally arrived, and so far it looks and feels absolutely awesome!) that hasn’t derailed, but if certain people aren’t told to tone it down a bit, I guess we will end up with another closed thread in a few days if I start one.
