General question Love...

Im sure you have come across many in your time...

currently there is one who is making my org experience "cussjarish" and I seem to be the only one annoyed...so Am seeking advice HOW do you guys tolerate....?
I mean...Ive been advised to ignore and mostly I do..but I just dont get why they are allowed to continue with their nonsense.

WHat is the point when they disturb sincere members and constantly hi jack and try and make threads about how smart they are ??

What am I missing....?

Do they have a purpose other than trouble making?

Am I to understand that I have to tolerate them ???

I'd point out that the term "troll" gets thrown around here but there isn't universal consensus about who those trolls are. Usually the troll is someone who annoys/disagrees with whoever is hurling that epithet. I think you'd find a surprising range of opinions on who fits the bill.

Generally I just try not to engage with those who I find annoying or not adding meaningfully to site discourse. Or if I think that a post clearly violates stated rules, I might consider the Report to Moderator function. But that's just what I do.

Usually a sure sign of a troll is somebody who obviously puts little thought and effort into their posts, and doesn't provide anything to support what they're saying. They also tend to focus on other members in their messages, rather than focusing on the subject being discussed.

I see it a lot in P&R, certain people will hijack literally every thread by race baiting. No matter what the subject being discussed, they will use it to talk about race and how every white American is an evil racist going back hundreds of years. Whenever others call them out on it, the troll resorts to namecalling particulary by accusing the others of being racist. If it would help to report race baiting offtopic posts, I would gladly do so. All the black/white talk is a downer when it has nothing to do with the thread topic.

Lovejunky---- I think I know who you're talking about. Especially when you said they always try to show everyone "how smart they are." -- Yeah. That person makes the org pretty much suck nowadays. I've also noticed that people are very respectful of him when he posts something that's already been posted (which I've seen him do) and things he's gotten wrong (even though he seems to think he's some sort of org genuis) but he doesn't give anyone else the same respect. I've also wondered why no one has told him off. confused

Sup[er Fan...thanks for weighing in on this...

I reported him ..had to do it about 7 times ..finally his comments were SNIPPED....but hes still here , although he seems to have developed some kind of softwear that allows you to selectively block people...and he has blocked me...hahahaha...Fine with me...Still a Mystery as to WHY he doest get his face slapped Publically...

I had an orgnote from another Member who thinks that his particticular troll is personally KNOWN by the Mods..I dont know whats going on...

but aside from anything else...his Profile pic says a LOT about him...

I have come to the conclusion this person is mentally ill....

In the "Just the FAQs" thread posted in a sticky above, there is a link to a thread called Troll Warning. Check it out. We really do have a zero tolerance for trolls. We just need to be on top of it more often. nod

Thanks for this June7..

I went to both links...

The article from NY Times was appalingly shocking and enlightening....

It seems that a TROLL on the internet is just as scary as the Mythical ones I learned about in my childhood..

Completely without empathy or compassion...

Ugly and Despicable even...

Im going to be more vigilant about reporting them....

and what about Prince Haters...??

There are those..some have been around for years it seems...and they are tolerated because they are funny sometimes ????????

There is one I can think of who is so mean and negative, WHY is he even here ?????

I woke up to a great realization about this today.
I can't control other people. I can enjoy them or I can control them, but I can't do both.
I am okay with folks who bait or whatever because I know what my purpose is. When I am working that, very little bothers me.
Prince is one person who helped me see that this year. LoveJunky you are another. And others help me along the way, on a daily basis. Sometimes we just have to keep encouraging each other.
So today I am happy and thinking of who I can help. That automatically gets me off the internet for a while.
As for baiting etc., as long as I'm not participating myself, I'm good.
And compassion works wonders too.
