What i am talking about are forum trolls and deviants.
    A truer statement could not be made by anyone, even if they were in the process of being waterboarded while undergoing a security scan at an airport after being injected full of truth serum and with a Christian Rock band playing in the background, good sir! I agree that these deviants, as you call them, are indeed a threat -- and not just a blob of threat, like the Communists, or a lurking threat, like the terrorists -- oh no. What we are dealing with here is a scalpel aimed at a heart of America -- the sanctity of discussion -- by none other than deviants.

    Much like with other statements of this nature, I'm not entirely sure what the terms means, or what conclusion follows, or what I am actually saying, but this does not matter at all: things like objectivity only get in the way of seeing things as they are with your HEART. The only thing that matters here is that I agree with this man 119%. Someone, give him a medal.

    I dunno what trolling is - at least nowadays - but I keep getting accused of it every third post, and as such, I plan to be the best damn "troll" I can be. Sorta like how a battered wife accused of adultery feels she might as well, since she's already getting **** for it.

    I, of course, expect e-fame and my name on everybody's fingertips. Well, right before a flame.

    That's the thing about e-fame. It's only one letter away from bursting into flame.

    That's the thing about opinions. Nobody wants to hear differing ones.

    Don't waste your time replying to me directly in a post.

    These forums are garbage and no threads can be subscribed to properly since 2010.

    Decade already and you still dont understand.

    Just go with the flow and troll as much you simply can. No need to be smart-*** around here.

    I tend to not worry too much about the community on MMO forums. I'm not sure I can agree that they've been more tolerable in the past either. Maybe certain sub-forums, such as specific server forums there seem to be less trolling, bickering, and general spam because posts deal more with the in-game community rather than the masses we never deal with.

    Best to find yourself a larger forum community that covers a larger number of MMO's, and any other topic of interest. Those are the forums where you find far more civility.
