    Trolls and Trolling

    just a refresher
    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".

    Trolls belong under bridges, not here on our glorious forum.

    Ha....I agree Andrea, those folks should find a better way to channel their hostile behavior....like coming to my house and shoveling my 1/2 mile drive way....they would them be too exhausted to cause trouble....

    hahaha your posts are far from trolling.
    most of the trolling that we have seen of late is from member(s) who have way too much time on their hands and find it "fun or interesting" to look for trouble.
    I have written to the members about this but expect it was ignored.
