    Angry Trolling is unacceptable..Please do not Feed the trolls

    We have had a few posts recently that were posted IMO just to create fear, havoc and reaction.

    Here is a reminder from the "rules" about Trolling.

    This is not necessarily for the trollers but for those of us (me included) that feed the trolls.

    Thank you all for reporting those posts by using the Report link or by private message.

    Trolls and Trolling
    Trolls are not welcome and will be banned. An Internet "troll" is a person who delights in sowing discord on the Internet. They try to start arguments and upset people. Trolls see Internet communications services as convenient venues for their bizarre game. For some reason, they donít "get" that they are hurting real people. To them, other Internet users are not quite human but are a kind of digital abstraction. Indeed, the greater the suffering they cause, the greater their "achievement" (as they see it). The anonymity of the net allows trolls to flourish. They are easily identified by the fact that they are constantly at odds with other members of the forum, and often "poke fun" at individuals they have disagreed with in the past, trying to provoke a reaction. Finally, trolls create a paranoid environment, such that a casual criticism by a new arrival can elicit a ferocious and inappropriate backlash. When you try to reason with a troll, he wins. When you insult a troll, he wins. When you scream at a troll, he wins. The only thing that trolls canít handle is being ignored. Again we will ban anyone who practices "Trolling".

    everywhere and anywhere
    Thanks for the reminder Andrea, I do see how sometimes we get "sucked in" to a conversation meant purely to cause a an argument.....
    So sad for the folks that do this, must not have anything else to do to keep them occupied......maybe if they read the forum for real and not just to cause trouble they would try taking a trip to Aruba, and change their irrational behaviors and become smitten like the rest of us !!!!!
