    Todd's "down syndrome Bill Maher" routine is a classic. But I'm not sure if he's a troll as much as he's a true believe who's really that stupid.

    I voted for PWF. His post are basically blah blah blah blah huputy bloop blah. Then his retorts are the same gibberish. Sometimes it's like we need to find a cure for Tourette's.

    I'll say Coco. I actually don't think hes a troll, I did last year and from recollection even nominated and voted for him in this category, but instead his blunt and somewhat Shakespearean posts have altered him into one of my more favorable forum goers.

    How many times does Sly have to win this award in a row before mods stop threatening posters because trolling is "against the rules?"

    How many times have you seen people get warned or infracted for "trolling?"

    I saw Dman ban someone for it and also note I said threaten, which I have seen a countless number of times although I was an alligator wrestler in a previous life.

    For the most part, it's a hollow threat. As long as you're not spamming or anything, you're fine -- Coco, Sly, and SNS prove as much. Though, most trolls spam and break other rules, so it's a moot point. Seriously, though, look at how GD has been parodying Dagger's posts; nobody has ever so much as batted an eyelash at what GD is doing.

    Established posters know this but it is in the rule book. If you want to thump that bible at people and proclaim them stupid for not understanding it then it should at least be accurate. I just have never been a fan of when mods harass new posters they decided they don't like by threatening them with this bogus rule.

    The rule seems harsh, but it basically says the same thing I just said. Don't harass posters and run people/threads/their ideas down.

    Some ideas are stupid. As are the owners of those ideas. They deserve to get run down. And don't pretend Sly doesn't do that sort of thing.

    Methinks you don't really understand the rule you're enforcing. Want me to take that bold name off your hands, champ?

    Poor wording then, I suppose. You shouldn't insult people and their idea to the point that they get offended, but you can say that you think it's silly/stupid. Just don't be a fucking asshole and start unnecessarily insulting people.

    You can have Dagger's. :shrug:

    So is enjoying CM Punk an idea? Also, I believe there is a separate rule about insults.

    An opinion. You're reading too deeply into my words. It was a vague description, not the exact rule or anything. There is (the flaming rule refers to extreme insults), but I'm just trying to interpret the trolling rule as I think it's enforced (albeit rarely).

    You mean when he banned Zeven_Zion? That one got reversed

    The idea of the rule is to say I go into every single thread outside the Bar Room you make and belittle everything you say no matter how dumb I'd sound, PM you and red rep you as consistently as possible. Technically, it's stalking in a visible manner rather than the kind of trolling we're more familiar with.

    There's more to it, though. Trolling isn't just specific to that context, especially in the way the rule gets enforced.

    It seems even the mods can't reach a unanimous verdict on what the rule means...

    Gelgarin, I know you have a brilliant retort for what I'm about to say, so stay out of this.

    Why are the delicate sensibilities of others my problem?

    So we have two mods here and one can't even explain the rule clearly after multiple tries and then basically admits he doesn't know what it means and then between them they still can't even agree. Seems like it is obviously a poor rule. The ban might have got reversed but it still happened killjoy. Sly knows how to train them. The most important part is blind obedience. You know why he never wanted you to be mod until after the election crock? It wasn't the bs he fed you, it was because he was afraid your allegiance was to other things since you liked to pal up with your bar room friends. I heard something interesting from a source speaking on the condition of anonymity the other day: many of those miraculous votes for Dagger during the election were Sly descended from Mount Olympus posing as a mere mortal.

    It's simple. Different applications of the rule for different guys. The definition of trolling is clear. One guy can do it and get away with it, while another guy can do the same thing and get warned or infract end for it. That's not a knock at anyone, that's just the way it is.

    Just like how CM Punk punches a fan in the face and nothing happens. If JTG does the same thing, he's gone by the end of the evening.
