What proof do you need somebody's an idiot Jon? Can't you recognise an idiot when you see one?
Are the streets full of one legged frustrated women named after laptops?
Are people sitting around cafe bars reciting obesity and sunburn statistics?
Have people ever approached you and gone on zenophobic rants about Roma?
Do people just turn up out of the blue in your town and start suddenly slandering your business and your home?
Are people following you round the streets and calling you names?

Rule of thumb....if it's not logical in real life, then it's not logical here. Forums are about real life, real people, real situations, real environments.....so if somebody turns up with patterns of behaviour that are not logical in real life. then you can bet your ass there's something iffy about them.

I've done this gig for TEN YEARS....I've seen every type of troll, alias, and sock puppet known to man! I can spot them within a few posts. Two years ago, I told Fiasco what was happening....did they listen? No they banned me for it.....and within a few weeks there was no forum left cos the trolls overan it.
I warned the management here about the last one....and what happened? Stupid little warnings until she filled the place with mindless shite and drove people away.

The management here (and I'm talking owners, not Mods) need to realise that these trolls have to be weeded out sooner rather than later. The 3 strike rule does not work with trolls....if they don't want to openly appear heavy handed tell them to install the VB miserable user hack. It works a treat.

You cant ban someone for being an idiot, and you cant ban someone for not being logical, and unfortunately although I'm fully aware of your skills, we cant ban someone just cos you think they're not right

And ... whilst we're on the subject of Fiasco, yes you did all get banned ......... and do you remember exactly why Pete? The troll didn't get everyone banned Pete, it was what everyone did to the troll and the other person apparantly which got the owners so fed up that they re set the forum. I say apparantly cos if you remember I was on holiday and when I came back the forum was gone!

I guess its the old addage ..... dont feed the trolls. You've seen enough of them operating, as you say, to know this by now

Absolutely Jon.....but when the trolls stalk you and slander you it's a different ballgame. We've already got a person here who's had to change their username because of stalkers.
Imagine if you had people following you round the board from thread to thread, or even from forum to forum? That's something you can't ignore.....it has to be dealt with.

Just having to deal with spermguzzling Brit dumbasses on the coast who are trying to play me for a fool cos they presume my accent makes me a thicko.
They fail to grasp that growing up in an inner city in industrial South Wales makes you a bit more streetwise than if you grew up on the playing fields of Eton.
They will have to learn, like all the others, that if you play hardball with the Cool Guy you're going to draw the short straw. 'Ave it!

To be fair, the user name change that you mention should not be bough up on here, and was completely different circumstances

Someone questioned your buisness once for sure, should I ban them for it? Should I ban everyone who criticises anyone?

I still have no proof, as I've asked, that anyone on this forum is someone from your past, or a dual personality. None, other than your gut feeling

I'm sorry mate, you know I'd be the first to act if I was convinced or had proof, but its not enough
