Title: Don't Feed The Trolls
Post by: cmiyc on Dec 20, 2010, 10:09 pm
Just a gentle reminder that feeding the trolls (which I am guilty myself) is never advised.

If we all stop feeding the latest one, then he'll get bored and go away.

It took all my inner strength yesterday not to feed him...   ;)

Look through Bar Sport.  It won't take long to spot him.  He made over 100 posts in less than 24 hours.  Replying to nearly everything he could find, mostly with non-sense.  When he got bored of that, he started making new posts (and polls.)

Why is it that we have a thread like this, in response to a person like this, at least once a month here. Why can't we all just get along !? :'(

There was a discussion on this by AlphaBeta ( long before i came  ;) )
we could probably somehow get it implemented  :-?

First time I've seen a serial offender like this since I came here.
There have been others, but after getting 2+ non-happy posts, they left.

This one is.. tenacious..

Notice that since you posted this, he has not made one more post... And he stopped at EXACTLY 150...

Exactly, +/- 45

Yes, we've ostracized a couple of people since my joining 2 years ago.

One a year is a bit different to one a month ;)

Perhaps I did exaggerate the frequency, but we've also had a couple of "open letter" discussions.

I've managed to only "somewhat" control myself.   It has not been without difficulty.  :-X
