A troll posing as two posters was found here:


One replied to a post with the exact quote of the original poster. He forgot which person he was supposed to be. Torusngamble and kebenaran are the same person.

I have noticed a lot of new posts from persons who just joined that day. They will usually have zero in their feedback ratings. Check out posts first by clicking on their name. It shows when the joined.

It just takes one person impersonating dozens of people to frustrate our conversations here. The trolls pretend to be one of us, but read their messages carefully. They have no intention of bringing about change.Their intention is to disrupt it.

We should take on board what you say and I'm append links to three other recent forum-posts - the contents of the first two short treads will be self-explanatory in their relevance here & the longer third thread also contains interesting insight :

Further, you may well be to onto something and someone, 'jrh' because the new poster 'Torusngamble' actually relied rather petulantly on this thread but deleted his/her/its comment within 5 minutes !

caveat ...

Torusngamble kebenaran patiesiba is the same troll. He can't seem to make a statement without including the words "Regime Change". My guess is he uses multiple names, changing them on a daily basis. He should be easy to spot by his topics and "0" newbie rating.

I heard someone say awhile back that they upvoted troll comments so they would be spotted by the admins in the "best comments" box and be swiftly banned.

"Ever stop to think the commenter was intentionally quoting the original poster?"

No, I've seen the same quote posted all over this site. I think you forgot which person you were pretending to be.
