I wish there was a button to flag suspected trolling.
It’s amazing to me how people flock to certain places on the internet and either don’t realize they are being deceitful, or they get a kick out of it. I just already feel so vulnerable.
I agree that some posts look like they cannot be genuine! I call the poseurs “time thieves” because they try to steal my time giving a response.
Yeah , the best way to tackle this is to have a user base that is wide and diverse. Also a bit of experience is all the regular folk need , they will manage to handle them.
I wouldn’t be for a troll button , free speech (within reason) is the best way.
It takes a bigger man to walk away than start world war 3…
Don’t put it near light, especially sunlight, it can kill them.
Don’t let it get wet with water nor give it any water to drink nor bathe it.
No matter how much it cries or begs, NEVER feed it after midnight.
Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree
You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But, remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:
Ad hominem attacks.
Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content.
Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
Hit the report button if you see a problem. Leave it to the mods. Most trolls get off on being passive aggressive. Leading the commenter to make the mistake often being the one to get suspended and not the troll.
We so need a ignore button here. But you can silence the post itself.
Also a new feature just installed on the software is the ability to stop receiving notifications from any member. Which is right down the bottom in your profile preferences
Under Users Muted. There is a box. just start typing the name of the member you wish the notifications to stop notifying you in the box. There is a bit of a automatic name window much like the @ feature… I hope that explains it. Oh and remember to click “Save changes”…
OK guys it’s like this I like to see both genuine sides to the story, so I am able to appear as a troll if I have a need to act like one for some unknown psychological reason. I can empathize with just about any mind set. so I don’t even realize that I might be acting out of place. hahahaa
i like trolls …they are cute and… cuddly and… snuggly
According to everyone everyone is a troll.
According to everyone everyone is negative.
According to everyone everyone is positive.
We all have our symbioses, it’s like the ocean.
Just flag it and leave us a message - that works fine.
