View Full Version : I have a question...

Isn't it considered "trolling" to go to a message board and repeatedly bash whatever is being discussed? There's this poster over in the Scrubs section, Anna4 , who has only made 9 posts so far and 7 of them are in the Scrubs section, dissing the show and it's fans. I've put her on my "Ignore Poster" list, but it is still annoying. Can't she be blocked from the Scrubs board or something?

I'm not TJ but I have to say that is trolling. Anybody who loves to cause trouble on the internet is considered a troll.

I've never went over to the Scrubs board before so I don't exactly know what's going on over there. If Anna's posts are typical 'Oh my God! This show is so retarded. blah blah blah' you can always report the post to TJ. He will prob. warn her the first time. If you don't want to take that route, just try ignoring Anna. Don't even tell her to shut up. Trolls feed on replies.
I'm not sure what I can do about this, I can ban a person but there is really nothing to prevent them from re-registering. Unfortunately, it's out of my control. Maybe try ignoring this person and they will go away.

I have suggested this before but I think I can suggest it again. Ask TJ to have you moderate that board, then you could edit this Anna person's posts (or delete them). That is what moderators are for, to stop fights. They are also here for keeping the boards a nice, peaceful, and enjoyable place for posters.
