    Boy do I feel stupid...

    Post by Noob-of-Artorias on Tue May 14, 2013 4:31 pm

    I frequent a site called N4G, it's renowned for it's terrible amount of fanboys, but I usually try and remain calm.

    I get to a story where the first comment is a known troll asking how people could possibly still like this game series (the series in question was pokemon) and then asked if it was dead yet.

    I foolishly responded by saying, "Are you dead yet? No? Hurry it up!" Not really thinking that hard about it, it was a joke right?

    I then get slapped with a dubious restriction and threatened with a ban by the Mods and Admins....apparently the troll in question had not only reported my comment but had emailed a Mod asking for my immediate ban from the site....because he claimed I told him to go kill himself (admittedly, I can see how that could be construed)

    When I PM'd the user to apologize, genuinely remorseful of my actions I get a sloppily written response which contained a majority of the 7 words you can't say on TV, several racial slurs before finally insinuating that he had in fact copulated with my mother last night...

    Moral of the Story....don't feed the trolls...

    That's life. Shrug
    Making a joke then being told that your mother had been copulated.

    You should have PM'd that to a moderator, and requested his immediate ban and removal from the site.

    Just saying, I'd send the mods a message including a screencap to that message, I'm the kind of person who doesn't take that kind of crap.

    Already did so....apparently because it's a PM and not a post the Mods can do nothing about it...

    If the mods can do nothing about PM's. Harass him.
    make Multiple accounts and set up a bot to send him messages all day.
    Make more accounts each day because he'll ignore them.
    Continue doing this forever.

    Or quit. That forum is a piece of **** if the mods hands are tied by it being a PM.

    You could give your Account data to one of the Mods so they see that the PM's are real .

    I like your method.


    Sadly I do not have much pity for you though, Artorias, for you fed the troll. We must all learn not to do that at some point.

    I thought I learnt that lesson long ago, but it seems I'm not done with my schooling yet.

    I think it's a lesson of the internet, y'know, not to feed the trolls but hopefully you've learned from your little mistake.

    I'd just ignore them from now on, maybe block them if possible?
    Or you could to what the rep trolls do around here, find one of his earlier posts and report him for that. (If it works that way)

    This is basicaly why I stopped posting anything on forums before joining this one.
    Even if you dont joke, someone can take a word from any of your sentences, interpret it it's own way and then flame you because you insulted his mother.

    I don't say it's different here, but it's generaly well moderated or calm down on it's own after some explainations.

    Considering how crap that forum appears to be and that the moderators do nothing about PMs,I'd say send him a dozen of the nastiest messages/links you can in the middle of the night and harass the crap out of him.It would be fun and getting banned wouldn't be so terrible,it'd just prove the mods are corrupt.

    Well if someone handed you a bag of cocaine, and you almost got arrested for it, and then sent you his address, and pictures of his cocaine stash, what would you do, go to his house and beat the mess out of him, or actually get him in jail?

    Your scenario makes no sense (where's the proof you were set up by the guy?

    Anyways, there's a massive difference between a guy being an ******* and a guy getting you arrested. Obviously you'd get him in jail in the scenario you gave, on the internet I'd simply get on with it.

    It's kinda why I don't use block lists.. It's not like I can hide and ignore what certain people say just because i don't like them in real life- why should it be like that on the internet? I just prefer to try work through my issues with people, even if it's meaningless and online silly
