Re: State of Affairs
The problem is not the trolls but the users. People like HeelKris, Apocalypto etc... come on here to troll you. You reacting is exactly what they want. You and your e-friends all coming together to rip on him only makes you look stupid because you are doing exactly what he wants while he just reads, laughs and feels like a big man irl (which is pathetic but no more pathetic then you crying about some troll calling you ugly, dumb or whatever).
Look at Apocalypto in this thread (before he got banned). People ignored him and he went away to try and start a fight in another thread. When a troll insults you laugh with him, ignore him, troll him back but don't react in a way that he wants. Ignoring is more effective then thinking you're 'schooling' them. Of course, you'll become a more well known member if you do attack them, so I suppose its a choice between getting rid of the problem or being 'popular'. I can already tell you most people will pick the popularity option.
I also blame the admins too for not being harsh enough. You_Heard, NoyK, Ghandi, Wrap Me Jungles and Froot for example are all rejoiners that the admins know about and they've allowed it. That along with the obvious trolls such as Apocalypto that were always going to get banned eventually anyway just makes the admins seem disintrested, which leads to the current STATE OF AFFAIRS.
