The Trolls Of CS

While it cannot be denied that they keep the blogs interesting, there are limits to what we have to endure. To have a difference in opinion is one thing; the blogs would have been a drag if everybody was in agreement all of the time but to insult and/or defame other bloggers as a habit is inexcusable and there is a vast difference between mocking and insulting. mumbling

My first impressions were that there were many trolls here but it seems that I was wrong in that early assessment; we only have a handful but they have several profiles and that is why they don’t care about being banned or suspended. They simply carry on with their other identities and reincarnate with a brand new identity; often very civilized in the beginning to gain a few friends. Sometimes when you think that you are outnumbered, it is actually the same person coming at you with different identities. uh oh

I don’t know what drives a person to act nasty when on the Internet. It could be that they are that way in real life but I’m more inclined to believe that most of them are not like that at all. I believe that by insulting people whom they don’t know at all, they are trying to divert their thoughts away from their own insecurities. thumbs down

Being anonymous has the effect of giving insignificant non-entities a false sense of security, invisibility, and power. tongue

Will this be a level playing field for discussion or will you be playing God

Hi Catfooooooott..
It seems that you and Oldblue are now getting along well. applause

Hi Nice.
Strange that you should be so sensitive. One would expect that somebody who can dish it out like you should be able to take it equally well.

Yes, I'd be playing God and yes, if somebody defames your character, I will delete it as with any other insult to anybody else. That, of course, excludes insults directed at me. Those I will deal with more effectively.

But why would people want to discuss you on this blog? Are you confessing to be a troll? I will be taking confessions later on.grin
Kalpataru
I agree thumbs up. And to add that, I found this on internet yesterday; a quote from The Indonesian Third President.

I wish I could stay a little longer but I have some urgent business. I'll look later.

Funny I thought this blog was in my honour

I'm happy to dish out as good as I get but if replies to said slander are going to be deleted then it's not cricket.

And we brits always like a fair fight

Haai Cattie, you should practice what you preach. You are the one who says: "Don't trouble trouble until trouble troubles you.laugh
Catfoot
Hi Bea,
I know what I always say so there is no need to remind me. The problem here is that trouble has troubled me.

Where are all the trolls? It must be a nice day and they´re all out playing in the sunshinedancing
Catfoot
Hi Nice2,
A fair fight?rolling on the floor laughing This is rich coming from you.laugh But then, seen in the light that slinging unsubstantiated insults around is considered to be a fair fight...shock

wow What do we have here? An innocent angel who wrongly ended up in hell. Be careful so you won't scorch your wings. angel

And a blog in your honor? Not likely. It will be conceited of you to believe that. This blog is dedicated to all trolls on this site. Unless of course if believe that you are the best, the biggest and the only... but that will be narcissistic, won't it? devil

Actually, I thought telling members to leave was the Moderators' job.

But I don't know why I'm telling you all this; you'd never do things like this. innocent

Catfoot, I´ve had a bit of troubleuh oh
Catfoot
Howzit BN
You're not a troll, are you?laugh

Not a real one in any way. I heard somebody - can't remember who liar - complaining the other day that you are never around when needed.

And being available when duty calls is the hallmark of a good troll.

Catfoot
BN,
What kind of trouble, my son? I can take your confession now.grin

Hi Kal
I fear you will have to translate that for us.
wine hug
Kalpataru
When there is someone insulting you, it actually is that person who is wasting her/his time.

That's the translation, more or less..wine

Hi Kal,
I think that is perfectly true. It is such a pity that all people do not have the same resistance to insults. They take the blogs too seriously.
Catfoot
Hi Lukie,
You should not laugh; this is serious shit.rolling on the floor laughing

LucyMaud
To add to Kal's post, people who hurl insults are often do so to feel better about themselves. Such a waste of time and effort.
Catfoot
Hi Lucy,
Yep, it is the only reason why a person would insult another person. It simply boils down to no manners and no respect.doh

Hi Catfoot
Once I posted a blog about Finland as the number 1 happiest country in the world according to a survey. A blogger named diamond_rain jumped in and started spewing personal attack and insults. I ignored him. I could erase his comment but I didn't.

Guess what then happened?
The Mods deleted his comment. yay

You see, even when someone insulted or attacked you but you didn’t take it, another "power" would deal with it.

That's why I mostly ignored it, moved on, and kept posting silly blogs. giggle
Catfoot
Hi Kal,
They have done that on some of my blogs as well. Some times even before I could respond but I guess they cannot be everywhere at once.

I cannot recall seeing DR. He must have been active in my absence.

Sorry to cut you short on the other blog but that one must go to sleep now.
wine hug
Kal ~ Wise woman and your new top/dress is lovely . [Sorry Cat for going off the point]
You are not Troll Bait and I admire you for that.hug
Catfoot
Hi GG,
I don't care what people comment about or how far they stray from the topic. As long as it remains decent.

I just read your blog, and I wondered about your source. I just went there and it still seems to be active.dunno
wine hug
Kalpataru
@Catfooooooott
Thaaat made me verryyy angry. very mad
Naaahhh... no need to sorry. It's just a comment. No biggies. cheers

@GoldenG
Thanks. handshake
kal ~ I was not making fun of you. You are last person whom I would do that to.
I was poking some innocent fun at a pretendy Chinese political expert [on American politics [ laugh
Who writes very much like I wrote to you. there a minute ago. Sorry I thought You would know. He pretends to have very bad English but every second sentence is absolutely perfect Etonian English. hug
Cat ~ Thanks for letting me know. I was on there a while ago and it was gone. There had been a few complaints and it was definitely blocked. I will try it after I have my lunch and get our for day and let you know. Thanks again. I thought some people who didnot like it [myself included] might be happy to know.... dunno confused
Kalpataru
Oh I know that, GoldenG. I know. So no worries. Like I said, that actually made me laugh. It's so funny. I imagined your accent when saying that. grin
Catfoot
GG,
No problem.
wine hug
Kal ~ I think he is very funny, very well versed in American politics but pretends he can't speak English and it is so funny to read. Alas, every 2nd post his English is perfect so obviously just a send-up, not a Troll as he is nice and also funny. laugh I would never upset you intentionally. That material you mentioned. I had a coat in it years ago, it is beautiful. Brocade. Hard to get now. xxhug
Kalpataru
And about that Chinaman, GoldenG, as you know that if lies are told over and over and over again, sooner or later those lies could be considered as the truth. And that's exactly his tactics. He keeps on pretending to have bad English, he expects that bloggers finally will believe that he is Chinese. wink
CAT ~ approx 1. 25 Thursday our time, and It is indeed unblocked.
I note that it has died a death. I really don't see the humour at all.

It seems now more focused on blogs and particular people there. Easy pickings no doubt.
Anyway I won't be reading it again. It was blocked though.

I give it a few days more at best. laugh
Kalpataru
@GoldenG

Maybe. I am not so sure about that. wink

@Catfooooooott
Sorry for hijacking. sad flower
Ok here is to make it up to you. You can hijack my disallow-comment blog anytime. giggle
Catfoot
GG,
You take these things too seriously. Laugh and the world will laugh with you; cry and you will cry alone.
Catfoot
No problem Kal.
I'll exercise my right to ignore your locked blog.laugh

Actually, I also enjoy that fake Chinaman. He's not really been naughty.

Hi Cat
At first I thought you were ringing the dinner bell for The Trolls Of CS and didn't want to interrupt feeding time.

I could shine light on some of this nonsense, but I prefer to let others form their own opinions...no matter how misguided.

And Kal? Let it be. He's not worth it.

Hi BD
This is very disappointing, I expected a much better attendance. Maybe my invitations went out too late.doh
