Please Read: Regarding Trolls, Flames, and Personal Attacks
Although Trolling, Flaming, and Personal Attacks are very rarely an issue in this Forum, this is something I must now address:
From FTE's guidelines:
2. Personal Conduct . Post language and material suitable for the home or office. Do not post foul language, racial epithets or sexually explicit content in any form. Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
Forum Troll Defined:
3. Forum Troll- An obnoxious user or member on a forum that goes out of their way to make pointless, offensive, or annoying posts and messages. Often these users are labeled as spammers and will post random off-topic junk in many sections of a forum. Urban Dictionary: defin...rm=forum+troll (third definition fits)
4. Forum troll- Trolls are people who want to get on your nerves. They will usually lurk around the forums and wait for an opportunity to annoy or attack a user. The best way to ignore a troll is not to flame back, but to report and move on. Trolls are no good and should be exiled.
If a user's posts fit either one of the top definitions, the simplest way to avoid enraging yourself and aiding the offending user in sending the Thread off topic is to add that user to your "ignore list".
Just go to your User Control Panel and from the menu on the left, look at the last item under "Settings and Options" which is "Edit Ignore List". Click on that and you can enter a user's name that you would like to ignore, and then that user's posts won't show up for you.
When you respond to a troll, you are adding fuel to a fire that will consume the Thread in question and destroy it. I've had to edit and in some cases close and delete threads that were and perfectly good before trolling started.
Trolling not only consumes the Thread, but it may also consume YOU! You may get upset and dwell on the offending user's post and hopefully not find yourself upset for the remainder of your day because of this.
Furthermore, if you respond to the offending users post (i.e. Fire back) you will be infracted for participating and encouraging trolling.
This starts as of today March 2nd, 2009, so for future reference, use the ignore function and save yourself a headache.
