If you don't, you can always get a "humerous bent" on Ebay (for those who get the reference). :P

Speaking of the troll, did you guys realize he attempted to come back at least 3 times since his ban? :P

Actually the last time I noticed the IP was a bit different, so maybe it was just someone else from his state/city using the same Cable provider. :suffer:

I was reading over some of my old posts, including ones that involved other troll posts we had in the past, and you know what I noticed?  There's actually a commonality that all trolls share.  8)

Troll posts start off either as pessimism, nagging, or "jokes" that you have to literally struggle in order to find funny.  Trolls post with the intention of getting a response, but the manner in which they do so is interpreted by others as rude and almost always offensive.  They then pick at your reply, focusing purely on the negative or illogical statements and try to escalate the matter to the point of flaming or cutthroat sarcasm.  From that point forward, a moderator takes control and the offensive posts get split/locked/deleted, and the member themselves get punished.

As for why trolls act the way they do, it's more out of insecurity than anything else.  They lack the optimism and faith that the majority of our fans do, and choose to focus only on the negative (e.g. seeing a glass as half empty rather than half full).  Some trolls do get the point that their behavior is intolerable and take a hint, others never get the point and do it because they get pleasure from all the attention.  The words they say are actually quite meaningless because they fail to hold up to logic and are usually myopic in nature.

That's why I no longer have patience for trolls, both in their infancy and those that decide to do it for a living.  If I wanted to, I could make them regret the day they step foot into our forum. :P However, our forum rules are are simple: if you post something offensive, you get punished.  The consequences almost always co-relate in magnitude with the offence itself and its context, so these rules are clearly fair toward both sides.  8)

 Every mod should one of these.   ;D
 


  Seriously people, it is bad PR to have this stuff the newcomers thread.  Funny in a way, but keep it someplace else, shall we?

 Thanks, I blatantly stole the idea from a mod on another forum I frequent.  ;) Use it how you like.

  I'm a strong believer that if anything can go wrong it will, and Utopia is no place.  But it takes little "faith"  to think  this game will finish.  The sheer scale of it, more than a score of people working for over two years, not to count the thousands of people who wrote VU to defend it, is ample empirical proof that this project has what it takes to get done.  6 years ago I would have thought it would never happen, but clearly it has.
