    Default Large groups of people + anonymity = trolls

    Amirite? I posted a simple, lighthearted threat about LGBT and the trolls just feasted off of the tears.

    It's not trolling.

    It's discussing with humor.

    I am curious if anyone understood what you meant by LGBT. This point aside I have played Aion and WoW and have had an utter gutful of forum trolls and ofc ingame ones. I know this is going to get me trolled but it has to be said.

    The majority of people who play these games are people Id like to meet but the ones whod sit on a pc and either spend time tracking down threads they want to poke fun at or go in a digital world designed for enjoyment and experiencing a fantastic environment etc I would rather not. If I had the choice people who made an effort to grief people in forums and were well known like jaym over in class forums qqing about classes hes done no research about would cop an aggressive ban.

    Yes this "anonimity" should be allowed but not to the point where the game that each of us pays for is something we start to avoid.

    Things have changed round here quite a bit, huh. It was expected of course. I like to track a forums progess by my ever increasing incredulous reactions to comments.

    Number of disbelieving shakes of my head in august = 3
    Number of disbelieving shakes of my head in september = 8
    Number of disbelieving shakes of my head in october = 20
    Number of disbelieving shakes of my head in november + BONUS "wtf" moments = 132
    Number of disbelieving shakes of my head in december + BONUS "wtf" moments + BONUS "what is wrong with you" moments = 1021
    Number of disbelieving shakes of my head in january+ BONUS "wtf" moments + BONUS "what is wrong with you" moments + BONUS "how do you remember to breathe in the morning" moments = 3287
    Basically I'm a part time blogger and I design my own jewellery line which is like, a mix of religious iconography kind of with a saved by the bell vibe. We're puttin on this rave in an abandoned mosque, and all the proceeds are going to that thing that happened in the middle east or africa or whatever

    No thats an indiciation of how much wow and other MMOs spawn a pathetic forum zerg on new betas in a frankly pathetic attempt to dissuade people from trying other possibly *and in this case its better by far* better MMos

    Sweetie, forums are where the insecure pretend they are smarter than everyone else so they get attention, or where they flame others for fun hoping to get laughs or to get some weird sense of popularity if someone else backs them up.

    It's dumb, it's childish, and it's so very very pointless.

    But it won't ever go away.

    Internet forums. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.
