    Default So, I can troll a little right?

    Every time I come here these days, I see a group of threads that are a composite of all the wasted energy of this community - the attention of many wasted on the attention-seeking few. To name, Bighead and whatever ipunk calls itself that week.

    No, they may not be posting porn or spam. That's the point. Wherever you set the line, they will toe it, test it, but never flagrantly cross it. Do you moderators have any discretion, or am I also free to troll this place, as long as I also post some mundane, boring content so it's not the only thing I do?

    If I made this thread, some mod would probably pay me a visit and lop off my head with a Kar98k. So, to answer the question, YOU can, but OTHERS can't. After all, you're a mod yourself, right? Of the now-defunct polls section?

    I'm of the party that would agree with you Al, but not everyone sees it that way. Unfortunately, this happens every couple years. There are fairly defined lines for most things, but as of yet, there has been no precedent set for when "annoying as clammy balls" becomes a bannable offense.

    Is there ever a point where you guys just decide to ignore troll posts? Or must we feed every single one that passes by?

    You don't just feed them either, you lay out a troll buffet.

    Bighead lied about having Asperger's Syndrome. So what? Ipunk returned and made an ass of himself again (No clue who the fuck he is.). So what? Chrisdude makes a pointless thread about wanting to be called Alex. So fucking what?

    I don't understand most of the arguments on this forum. Some random with 730 posts who has been inactive since the release of Splinter says the most benign thing, and it spawns a 90-page argument. Meanwhile, a legitimate interview is posted, and receives only a few replies before being buried by the usual suspects (guess the lyrics, etc).

    I don't really mind the flood of drama threads on this forum. It's just that it isn't even good drama.

    Oh my god. No I didn't. In fact, after the whole thing went down, I learned that my psychotherapist IS certified to diagnose DSM-4 conditions.
    When they said "sit down", I stood up.

    Anyone miss when fucking with people on the internet, was called just that?: "Fucking with people on the internet".

    Also, the term 'trolling' is so broad, and so obnoxious. Any douche who says something stupid on the internet can just fall back on it as some demented, half-ass excuse.

    "Dude, you're wrong. You're an idiot."

    "Naww, man. I was just trollin' ya!"

    It's the keyboard warrior's get-out-of-jail-free card. Instead of owning up to their choices, they use this one-stop-shop, backpedal maneuver. "Whoops! Looks like my opinion, true or not, isn't appreciated here. Better conform!"

    Incorrect. The same exact rules apply to everyone, even the Gods--I mean, mods. So to answer you question, Al, yes. You can totally do that. And yep, we do have discretion, but it's basically irrelevant. My thoughts echo Lost's.

    iPunk who?

    Trolling is such a hideous term. Al, I thought you were smarter than that.

    I'm not a threat on here and I know this because of my shady history.
