I have a suspicion that 'stevec' is back to the forum under a new alias.
Does anyone else feel the same?

The question is "how should we deal with such trolls?".

I would like to know your opinion, therefore I'm submitting the question on voting with a few answer options.

Please vote, or if you think you have a better suggestion, write it down in a comment.

Thank you.

We tried a warning once before.  That's reasonable, some people don't know that they're obnoxious.

But, look at this troll's record at TV, saying that Stamp is German, has poor English, dispensed incorrect information, and that the net is better off w/out TTA.

Look at the baiting he did here.  

And, look at the IP addresses.  It's almost as if he's using the same public internet.




Asking Sirchai about being sick on a Sunday is not by itself conclusive.  Then asking about Saturday, and then finger wagging about a quote is conclusive.

Look at my post "What is a troll?" in the teacher's room.  This guy is a chamele-troll.

We should have these chats in PM's.  Doing it in the open just feeds this pathetic cripple.

Maybe I'm heartless because I had to deal with one whining crybaby and one super-psycho on another board a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. I can live with that.

KJ:  Zap the damn troll now.

I would agree with ttompatz. This is a private forum. My feeling are trolls will scare away the good people who could not be bothered participating because of the poor behaviour of other members.

Trolls like these mo ...(fill in the blanks) are the worst that can happen to a forum.

   Reasons are quite easy to understand. It's obvious that some of them got dismissed from other forums and their only mission is to criticize others.

 The problem is that such troll posts are mostly posted for one particular reason: to destroy the thread and it's often working.

Why would anybody want to read somebody's wrong advice, then correcting members who were right?

 

 It can't be in our interest to read such smoggy posts on an everyday basis.

The former web page TTA was also infiltrated from time to time and it was always a pain where the sun doesn't shine to finally stop these guys' troll posts.

Ttompatz' post is the best solution. once warned next time dismissed.

mo.....
monkeys?

Normally, I would agree with "one warning," but when the trolling is clearly no accident, then no prior warning.
Besides, our troll had been spoken to many times in its posts. Warnings were just encouragement.

Why spread misinformation?  They're assholes &/or have no lives.

Unless, they're delusional and believe their own bullshit.  Some people are desperate to "be right" and be listened to. To say that such a person is not above making things up out of thin air is like saying the sea is not above the clouds. This sort of person has existed for all eternity and is not unique to the internet.

In the real world, a person can scream at the top of his lungs and interrupt people (at least until the police arrive to take him away) to make sure that he and he alone is heard.  At least on the internet, we don't have to put up with that.

You're absolutely right and we should never let such a thingy go that far that we're mad about his written diarrhea.

"It" should be removed as it would be cancer.

Fast and effective. cool thumbs up 2

P.S. A Trollfree website would be great. I've just seen another troll post coming from "guest". And we all know his old username.

It's not fun anymore. wai

I applied the first option against 'SA80'. I deleted him straight away. (As he was already warned once when he was under the name 'stevec').

I'm still trying to find out where I can change the alias 'Guest' into 'persona non grata'... aha

Delete the troll's bullshit posts and ban her. (I say "her" because PMS would explain a lot.)

The turd came back, annoying as ever. Zero tolerance.

Say what you will about communist police states, but the Soviet Union surpassed the west.

Here, I notice that almost all of the doctors I've seen are women, and they are a common sight behind the wheel of a city bus.

There was an exception.  We enjoyed our foot massages and I looked into full body.  I then learned that the man on the staff, not one of the ladies who'd done our feet, would give the massage.  I exited the shop so quickly that the dust cloud has yet to settle.
