    Which is having no effect judging by the number of Vegan Cro's we have, 55/88/99/207 etc.
    I wasn't aware of anyone commenting about the Manchester terror attack but I try to steer clear of the serious Far-right nutters and Holocaust deniers.

    What kind of logic is it that the user becomes the problem ("just put them on Ignore") and not the actual waste of space doing the trolling?
    It just looks like an excuse for the mods to do nothing - and then we have people suggesting that nobody complain because Some Trolls Are Bigger Than Others and we should be grateful it isn't worse? Ugh.

    Because the moderators are not interested and are happy to let the site go to shit, it would seem.

    I'm not bothered by your mad theories about JM. It just pisses me off that they have to be in every thread, everywhere, derailing any attempt at a normal discussion no matter what the topic is. You just sandblast this site with bullshit.

    I take it that the nutjob far left wing super nutters dont bother you one bit.:lbf:
     
  5. all my DramaJ/Seymour reports are on that one thread, wtf are you nutters talking about?

    by normal discussion I take it you mean the ones that pound on Moz:lbf:.
    i cant think of any other discussion that would qualify as normal. Maybe the one about
    King Charles the gay King of Sweden? Or the one about throwing a Burger King bag at
    the homeless.:rolleyes:
    :lbf:
     

  6. WtF? How can you ban anyone while having Skinny calling half the board Nazis and racists.:crazy:
    All over the threads FFS. You havent seen those? I find that UNBELIEVABLE>o_O

    If you don't understand, let me explain it to you. It is one thing to disagree with or post something in opposition to one's post, but quite another to continually go after someone repeatedly just to see if they can get you to sink to their level. It is a few posters that led me to ignoring all ANON posts, and that is a shame because occasionally I will choose to read one in response to something I posted only to find it to be something of value.

    I left this site about three years ago for over a year because someone decided to choose a version of my site name just to try and coerce me into an internet war of words, and I would do so again as I think any sane person would if confronted with such personal attacks. There is an amplification of the mean-spiritedness of these trolls that is fostered by the anonymity of the internet. When there are no consequences for one's actions it brings out the worst in the worst of people. This site is living proof of this.

    Well, aren't you special.

    You don't need to explain to me what it's like to be consistently harassed by someone who is "trying to see if they can get you to sink to their level" (where have you been?), so please don't belittle me.

    The pros and cons of people 'trolling', being unique,'interesting', overly verbose or however you term it can be debated here ad nauseam
    The actual reality of said behaviour though can be (and often is) disruptive to threads.
    Well evidenced by people trying to get gig info, set lists, reports etc whilst some run wild at the keyboard with utterly off-topic tripe that clogs threads.
    People then have to wade through the dross to get to the information - which is the antithesis of topic-driven discussion forums.
    Personally, I find people that want to randomly debate Hitler in a gig thread - well, their motives are pretty clear and need no extra explanation to mitigate their behaviour.
    Myself: well, I'd move anything not remotely on topic to the pigsty consistently, day in and day out until people realised it was futile to try and derail things by demonstrating their desire to ramble to a group of strangers at the expense of others, but we don't live in a perfect world.
    Regards,

    That was one example.
    It is equally prevalent in any recent article where there are 200-300 replies and only some relate to the initial topic.
    Is there an emoji for 'you knew exactly what I meant'?

    Oh no! I'm bald! It's the end of the world! I'll let you in on a secret. It's not the end of the world and I'm ok with who I am.
    How about you, monkey-boy? And thanks for taking a brief respite from the self-abuse to reply.

    I find it baffling the high number of people around here that somehow don't seem to understand that Aztec is playing a character...
