Im not exactly sure if this is in the right forum but i just have to say im tired of people who constantly troll. Although we all tend to do it DennisDFat seems to be in just about every thread dissing whatever someone else said. He never seems to add anything positive and i dont see why nothing is done about that. Im not sure if im the only one that feels like this but what can be done to keep trolls like him down?

Well that certainly fulfills a lot of my christmas wishes. Honestly, I 100% agree with OP, DennisDFat has used it up. I don't think I've come across one single post by him within the last month that wasn't jsut blatantly trolling.

Being a smartass is fun. Being an elitist and trying to squash other peoples' personalities becuase you don't like them must be fun too. Anytime somebody invades a topic with an ofhand remark they're labled a Troll. How 'bout getting rid of people who constantly play the "Troll" card ?

Besides, some of the threads NEED a few trolls to liven things up because a few people take videogames a little too seriously.

Actually, maybe I'm reading the wrong threads, but Denis's name doesn't jump out in my mind as a big deal.

Rule 1: ignore the trolls.
people like that are doing it to either get attention, or to get a rise out of somebody. Here he is, mentioned in the first post of a thread that is pretty much *dedicated* to him. exactly what he was looking for.

there's a difference between being a troll and being a smartass. Sometimes being the smartass does get annoying, I'm on another board where someone's entire rep is that of the smartass. yes, it does get annoying. I just ignore him. There's always the class clown.

I personally don't care about the trolls. I just ignore the post are respond to it as I see appropriate. Mostly ignore it though.

Posted 20 December 2004 - 06:17 PM

Personally, I have sort of gotten used to DennisDFat's comments. They aren't all the time and they are fairly consistent, to the point where you actually predict what he is going to say. He isn't one of the totally flamers, etc. In the beginning I did think that he was but I guess after time he kind of wore on me, but I don't know. I really don't see him as part of the problem. I will agree with the majority that something needs to be done about the constant falming, harrasing, etc. But as we do filter the good apples from the bad ones, we should take care to make sure that we truly get rid of the bad ones and not the ones that we just dislike.

Well i do tend to ignore them but what makes it a bigger deal then just people being assholes is that many times good topics are turned into flame wars because of the "rise" they give to people. Then you have all off topic flaming and i personally hate reading threads i make to see people start to argue because of some dumb comment that just ruins the thread making 2 out of like 4 pages of the thread useless(just an example)

I've said it before and I'll say it here. Unless someone does something really bad (like MorganWebbLover did), you kind of just have to put up with their personality and move on. In terms of "useless posts", don't even get me started. If you're going to start judging (and banning) people on the content of their posts, then I don't see how you can't start anywhere but the OTTs. I don't see how you can say that one form of BS is any worse than another.

BTW, I think that better defined forum rules are a great thing. If you could also Cheapy, somehow make it so that new signups have to read a mini-faq of sorts (saying that you can see what acronyms are by hovering over them, etc).

Good point. But if everyone ignored the thread crappers, they'd stop eventually. I know that'll never happen though cause sometimes it's hard to always ignore it.

hey, ive been around for a while on the boards, but I dont think I'm as well known as i could be. Can someone make a thread about how terrible a member I am so people will start to recognize me? I will be happy to insinuate that someone is gay or make a few prejudiced comments if thats what it takes.

jalu6 is a horrible person who has differing views and tastes in video games than I do and has considered making comments about my sexual preference as to why I am different. He must be dealt with swiftly or else I will have to make a thread about it.

I already gave DenisDFat one. If anyone else wants to use it, feel free.

I have another one that is better IMO but it is down at the moment. I'll post it soon as it is back up.
