Interesting number of LW threads today, that a cynic might see as trolling for hides. Me not...

...being a cynic I'd say, make your own decisions and be circumspect in your replies...

1. Yeah, the quantity is up.

But the quality is still at the same level as always.

(OK, it has gone up some since a particular poster recently returned to vaycay status.)

20. That is ok too. They have a confirmed

tenancy to self-clean. So, they may return for some timeframe, they will ultimately return to a peaceful slumber soon enough.

2. One of the downsides of this site

Some members on both sides only reason for being here is to troll for hides on the opposition and then claim "victory".

I'll admit, there are times I've posted "gun porn" fishing for trolls myself. If you don't like guns you have 3 choices....trash or put me on ignore, debate me reasonably....or take the cheap shot and take your chances with the jury pool.

I still think a evenly divided mod team would cut down on the number of troll posts. We both know there are members of the site on both sides of the issue the site could due with having their accounts deleted......less cartoons and more civil debating could grow the membership

4. That's sucks.

 

I mean trolling for hides. I can seriously take things right to third grade level or, the gutter. But I have never posted with the intent of getting a hide on someone. If someone pisses me off to that extent, I put them on ignore until I chill out.

7. Glad to know I am not the not the only one.

 

Sort of funny story. I can't remember who, but I had someone one ignore. I saw there was a reply to a post I made and it said, you have this member on ignore, so I logged out to see who it was, logged back on, took them off ignore, replied to the jackass, and got a friggen hide. That put an end to that practice pdq.

8. OH yeah...



I often seen that there are replies to my posts that I can't see, but a while back I'd let a couple names come off my list, just to see if I'd been hasty in judging. A couple of day's worth of reading proved to me that my original judgments had been correct, and back into the ranks of the "disappeared" they went.

On the occasion, I'll start a thread that I think will garner "interest," and I'll view a handful of replies, but see that, by the numbers, there were THREE TIMES as many replies as I could read.. and I smile...

straight into the trash. I don't think we need mods. There are enough tools here to customize the site for yourself.

I scroll right past some replies. A kind of mental ignore. I take breaks from DI also.

... take a peek... mainly to see if his keyboard broke mid-sentence...

It seems to me that most of today's OPs are RW but I didn't count.

21. Pretty much. I noticed it too.

All you have to do is scan the home page and look at the poster.

The biggest complaint I have is that they're all the same topic just worded differently.

I guess the cave got the smart ones.

10. If you know there's a hook, don't take the bait.

 

If you do, it's not the fisherman's fault.

Self-control! Look it up!

on ignore in all the years I've been on the Internet. I might just have to put one ignorant lying rightie on here today.
