A forum with only trolls is no forum at all.
A forum that allows trolls unfettered access dies.
Talk to owner ,try one of TC's emails.
Same could be said about the unfettered posting of web links , even though we know they are on the internet so must be true.
Toolsmith, A forum which responds to trolls is a self inflicted wound. Like fishing, if you cast your hook 100 times and get no bites, you spool it up and move on. Unfortunately, posters here continue to try to get into a debate with grade school level snotty children.
Bruce, "fettered" posts and urls require a "fetteror". That means one who chooses what he/she thinks is correct or conforms to his/her philosophy and restricts what other may see or post. That will kill a forum.
The bigliest troll ever:
The Troll Complaint: Reasonable people have no interest in this cesspool.
Yet they all stay. Others tire of it and move on... but they stay.
Perhaps we all know what puts the "cess" in the "cesspool"...
The real question is WHY.
Why would someone stay, if they truly think so little of it?
Ego? I'm so much better than all those people in that cesspool?
(Odd, when one has to swim in it to say that!)
To ruin it for everyone else? Ego again?
Schoolyard bully? Cowards in real life, they can be "big" and "bad" here, without any risk or consequences?
We all know people who've got nothing to contribute, but can heap loads of disdain and condescension on anyone else's work. Is that what we have here? The useless berating the useful, to feel better about their own totally useless lives?
Saying this is a waste of time, and then spending EVERY DAY HERE... quite telling.
That was an observation, not a complaint. Here's another: The owner probably has no love for the Stoolwatchers and other foil hat wearers of the world. He strikes me as a moderate and decent fellow. Maybe he doesn't do anything about the trolls because he figures you don't really deserve a place to spew your wingnuttery in peace. Perhaps you would be better served by hanging out in the comment section of Infowars or Jihad Watch.
Still you stay.
Dude, you support a guy who thinks you need an ID to buy cereal and I'm supposed to just walk away from that?
Reasonable people have no interest in this cesspool.
And now you've confessed why you stay, and it isn't because you're reasonable.
I have made it clear many times that my vote was against Clinton not for Trump. You just don't hear anything you don't want. I will *never* trust any member of that corrupt Clinton gaggle. An ineffective Trump surrounded by resisters is better than a Clinton with all the levers of the deep state. No contest.
OMG. I can't believe you gave a serious response to my "confession". LOL. I don't give a rat's behind who you voted for or why. I"M TROLLING YOU FOR GOD's SAKE and you're trying to engage????? Bless your heart.
QED. Full confession.
Arguing with trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.No matter how good you are the pigeonis going to shit all over the board ,then strut around in it like it won anyway.
expat claims he trolls for God's sake?
One wonders how, and why, God assigned this calling to expat.
I got the full troll confession. This thread is a total success. I can now use it as proof of his troll nature whenever needed.
the destruction of the culture, history, and Christian foundation is in fact god's work, the trouble is its not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob that one immediately thinks of when that term is carelessly used.
As hard as it is for me to believe, people out there focus their religious obligations towards all sorts of ancient pagan deities and familiar spirits. I just think it is so sad to see people with a reprobate mind take such joy in anonymously decrying anything that is good, clean, decent, or holy.
If one is not thrilled with Mr. Trump, I wasn't when he was candidate Trump, show me who would have been a better choice. I can't vote for people I know are treacherous and the definition of evil, so that only left him.
I would prefer to ignore the trolls and/or their posts, but this forum does not have those options. Nor the willingness to prune those who contribute nothing but bile and obscenity. So we try to discuss between the chaff and chum as best we can.
I can now use it as proof of his troll nature whenever needed.
Yeah, that'll show 'em!
Exactly. Whenever you accuse someone else of being a troll... I post the permalink to your confession.
Ooh, I'll be so ashamed.
It has and it will. What is wrong with you?
expat: "Ooh, I'll be so ashamed."
I've been thinking that AMG's trolls are like dogs lickin' their dickin' in public, simply because they can, and it feels good.
Imagine such a dog being "ashamed," and you have expat and the rest in a nutshell.
Perhaps the appropriate response, if any, is "lick, lick, lick...."
If Expatty, Mattybubbles, and TC ever discovered that they could lick them selves, they'd never leave the house.
Happy new year to all the fine folks on AMG!
