Forum Post: Stop Feeding The Trolls!!!!!

Posted 2 years ago on Dec. 9, 2011, 12:26 p.m. EST by XXAnonymouSXX (455)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

We need to stop responding to these trolls in here. We all know who they are. You can tell the second you read their comments. If we all stop responding to them, they have no ammo. Every time you respond to them it turns into a elementary school argument and leads to something completely unproductive. They are here to divide us and we are allowing it. This post will be filled with them. So take note of their names and avoid getting into discussions with them because it will lead nowhere. As soon as you start you lose sight of the real reason we are here. Problem resolution. Let's stay on topic and starve these trolls by ignoring them.

Like I said. It brings in the trolls. Take note. Even they know who they are. That's why they get mad at a post like this. Ask all the questions you want trolls. You get no answers from me. mmmmwwwwhhhhahahahahahahah!

Don't feed the Trolls! Absolutely!

Leave them alone to play with themselves. And each other. Its what they do best.

Discussion of OWS related issues is too vital to be diverted from its purpose by the sociopath minions of the little liber troll king luaPnoR.

copy the format of ATS...

If you feed the trolls, they think they can stay for dinner.

[-] 0 points by looselyhuman (3117) 2 years ago

Problem is the trolls are entirely self-sustaining. On threads where they're effectively ignored they feed themselves/each other...

[-] 1 points by honestyblaze (151) 2 years ago

Conspiracy theory has become conspiracy fact, The minds of the protesters are in danger from their own lack of identity, & lack of realization as to WHO actually HAS they power. They do, but they think Constitution is law. I hate to tell you this, but the American constitution has been ripped out from under you. You are at the mercy of lawless Government, without even due process. Posse comitatus has GONE. You think Occupy, relying on the Constitution to save them is going to work, when the Constitution does not apply to Govt? People are trying to WAKE YOU UP!!! We have been watching what they are doing to it's people for 10 years or more, yet you still think the Govt will ALLOW you rights? (Who are they that they can do that?) Read this, & then tell people you know what is REALLY going on!! More of you will die if you do not understand that YOU created the STATE, You the people give it authority, & YOU can actually take it back, but you have to know the game they are playing. NOBODY wants this for America, except its Government. We are Brothers in Arms, because it really is Them VS Us, the people now.

KBR’s call for FEMA camp service bids arrives soon after the Senate overwhelmingly passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which permits the military to detain and interrogate supposed domestic terror suspects in violation of the Fourth Amendment and Posse Comitatus. Section 1031 of the NDAA bill declares the whole of the United States as a “battlefield” and allows American citizens to be arrested on U.S. soil and incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay.

It must still clear the House and I hope it doesn't.

[-] 1 points by honestyblaze (151) 2 years ago

I do too, but it will. Obama will appear to protest, but it will go through. If it succeeds, Obama didn't want it to fail. It has been the agenda for a long time. If the president of the Unites States cannot stop it, it must be because he doesn't want to. it will be another 'dog & Pony show', nothing more...

[-] 0 points by theaveng (602) 2 years ago

I predict Obama will veto it, but then it will pass anyway (because it had a 95% majority in the Congress).

[-] 1 points by FreedomIsFree (340) 2 years ago

It's sick. Obama will be given the opportunity to veto it as a campaign boost, without needing to be against it at all, for all the executive powers he already has claimed.

[-] -1 points by theaveng (602) 2 years ago

I heard one reason Obama wants to veto the bill is because it defines terrorists as "prisoners of war" which means he would have to obey the Geneva Convention rules (no torture, no indefinite detainment in Guantanamo, et cetera). By vetoing the law he can ignore the convention rules and treat the terrorists any way he desires.

.

[-] 1 points by FreedomIsFree (340) 2 years ago

Well, I don't think we've been following the Geneva Convention too well, anyway. Neither do I believe that the Senate, with this bill, is doing very well keeping their oaths of office. It's times like this where I wish the 17th Amendment had never been ratified.

[-] 0 points by theaveng (602) 2 years ago

I don't think we've been following the Geneva Convention too well, anyway

That's the point. Currently we don't have to follow the Convention because the terrorists are not considered POWs. But under this new law they receive that new label which forces the president to obey the anti-torture privisions of the convention. (And that's why he wants to veto it.)

[-] 1 points by Coriolanus (272) 2 years ago

I'm not sure if I am on the troll list yet, but I think Thrasymaque makes a reasonable point. There are excellent ideas proposed by various people on these threads, and some achievable goals. But it is hard to filter out the dross (the truthers, the anti-semites, various other conspiracy theorists, etc.). That was also my experience when I visited Zuccotti Park several times in October - some bright people with great ideas, some kooky people, and some frankly scary folks. Maybe it is like Mark Twain said when he was informed that it takes all kinds to make a world: "it doesn't take all kinds, but there are all kinds."

It would be nice if this forum were subdivided in some way, to make it easier for people to converse about the topics that interest them. But I suppose you get what you pay for.

[-] 1 points by cmt (1195) from Tolland, CT 2 years ago

Sturgeon's Law!

However, despite that, I've learned some helpful things here, and hope that the honest discussion helps OWS along.

[-] 1 points by Coriolanus (272) 2 years ago

Exactly!

[-] 0 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

Indeed, Sturgeon's Law. That's why editors are so important.

[-] -1 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

Conspiracy theorists and anti-semites are not welcomed on this forum. This is clear in the forum rules. What these people don't understand is that the forum has rules to limit off-topic posts. They believe their freedom of speech trumps these forum rules. They don't realize that all forums of discussions have rules to keep discussions on topic. If we were to post unrelated material to flood their conspiracy forums, conspiracy theorists would ban us in a second. If they want to contravene the forums rules by crying for total freedom of speech, then they must also accept my freedom of speech. And, sometimes, I speak with images. Like you said, these peoples' posts are dross. At least now you'll find a couple of interesting cartoons if you go on their pages.

I'm working on some code for this site which will let you ignore the posts and comments of users you have on your ignore list. When that's done, it will be easy to hide their nonsense. For good measure, I'm going to add some code so that known conspiracy theorists can be put on a site wide watch list. That will make it easy to ignore all these guys at the click of a button.

[-] 2 points by hamalmang (722) from Lebanon, PA 2 years ago

There should be a way to click on a user's profile and see every comment they ever posted. That is how other forums I've seen are run and it would make way more sense for this one. It seems simple enough. Is anyone even running this thing?

[-] -1 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

Are you a programmer? If so, go ahead and code it. The forum is open-source software. That would be an excellent feature.

[-] 1 points by hamalmang (722) from Lebanon, PA 2 years ago

I have no idea how to do any of that. I know nothing about computers really. I had to use google just to figure out how to open my computer tower and get the dust out.

Somebody should do it though and while they are at it they should find a way to organize the topics. So much good dialogue gets lost in the troll mess.

[-] 2 points by honestyblaze (151) 2 years ago

Then perhaps you are one of 'them' & not one of 'us' if you think you have the right to sensor, so maybe YOU should go? Occupy is about freedom OF SPEECH isn't it? Or is this site here to monitor more closely the rebellion of the people, & you can 'report' it to someone? I have to ask,, Are you even on occupy's side? Related topics are ANY items & snippets that help the movement move forward. Hashing out the same crap day after day is just not DOING anything, so some new insight should be welcomed, unless you are Govt...?? People have good ideas that will help if you take off your fogged up glasses to look & THINK outside the box!!

[-] -2 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

Exactly, rehashing the same crap day after day is not doing anything. That's why conspiracy theories are not allowed on this site. Read the forum rules. Occupy is not a bandwagon for your conspiracy theories. You've been rehashing these nonsensical claims for 10 years now. Do you still think Elvis is alive?

[-] 4 points by honestyblaze (151) 2 years ago

you ignorance isn't dead then.!?! There are NO CONSPIRACY THEORIES anymore. They are Conspiracy facts by US Govt OWN admissions! You think everyone is a nut because they SEE what you can't? That's your wonderful Govt funded mind control for you!Oh, no, they wouldn't do that, would they??? Must be something else... I haven't been rehashing anything for ten years, so speak truth! This site keeps harking to the Constitution! IT HAS GONE, you need another tactic because if OWS go into Court pleading constitution, they will be FEMA-ized by christmas. There is NO Constitution. It have been usurped, but you still think it is going to win for you!!! WAKE UP! Your Govt are attacking the World, not just the Americans. They are pillaging the middle east, millions are dying, & your asking me if Elvis is dead!?!?! Get some perspective, American people are in grave danger from its own government, but those of you who still think 'They won't do that to us' are either blinded, deluded or dead from the neck up. Auschwitz is coming to US whether YOU see it or not. It is coming to Europe.. It is going to be a global prison camp because the Anglo-American Union has teamed up with the UN, & are on a rampage throughout Africa & the middle East. OWS is just keeping the PEOPLE OCCUPIED while the rest goes on in the back-ground. do research 1st if you want to respond to this. RULES are what has led to this,so what-yer-name, stick YOUR rules.. That is what Govt is for, but not on this site...

[-] -1 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

If you do not agree with the rules of this forum, I suggest you contact a moderator. I do not make the rules. Nice rant by the way, it makes you look like a lunatic.

[-] 0 points by honestyblaze (151) 2 years ago

& your response shows you are blind & ignorant. If you don't make the rules, maybe you should not try to implement them. If the moderators have a problem with my comments, they would say something to me. They haven't.. Maybe they are a bit more awake than you are. Everything I 'ranted' is actually true. Your conditioning does not let you recognize truth. Google everything I have said.. I stand by it. Occupy is now only occupying the people now while this is all going on in full view of the world, but American minds just can't process truth. It is too unbelievable.. As they say, 'Truth is stranger than fiction. The Bill to execute you without due process has been passed. Posse comitatus has gone. you are screwed by YOUR Govt...

[-] 1 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

It's sad to see you write in this way. You suffer from a mental illness and you should seek some help.

[-] 1 points by honestyblaze (151) 2 years ago

Again, are you qualified to say that? Do you KNOW that I am delusional? have you researched what I have said? If you do, & can conclude that I am lying or am just fantastical, & will go to my doctors & get some Lithium BEFORE they put it in the water... Prove me wrong...

[-] -1 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

You are fantastical. I don't think you're lying on purpose, you're just caught up in the lies of others. In a sense you're brainwashed. The fact that it's been 10 years and you're still scrapping the bottom of the barrel by going to random forums to convince random people of your claims is proof that you have nothing. If you had something of worth, you would be publishing it in peer-reviewed journals then we would have something to debate. Until then, you're just being fantastical. You bear the burden of proof not I. Extraordinary claims must be supported by extraordinary evidence. You have no such evidence. Everything you have has been debunked 10 times over.

Narrative Summary

  1. Some people have said that the Bush Administration exploited the September 11th attacks to justify the invasion of Iraq. Others say that Bush acted correctly by going into Iraq because Saddam Hussein supported terrorism. Who are you more likely to agree with? Bush exploited Sept. 11th attacks

44%

Bush justified an attack on Iraq

44

Neither/Not sure

11

People are completely divided on whether they believe President Bush exploited the 9/11 attacks (44%) or justified an attack on Iraq (44%). Approximately one in ten (11%) is not sure.

The largest majorities who feel that Bush exploited Sept. 11th attacks are Democrats (69%), Hispanics (59%), and Jews (64%). Close to half or more of 18-29 year-olds, single adults, African Americans, and residents of the Central/Great Lakes, West, and large cities agree.

The largest majorities who feel that Bush justified an attack on Iraq are Republicans (72%) and residents of rural areas (59%). Approximately half of whites, 30-64 year-olds, Protestants, suburbanites, and married adults agree.

Men and women are both evenly divided.

  1. Some people believe that the US government and its 9/11 Commission concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence that contradicts their official explanation of the September 11th attacks, saying there has been a cover-up. Others say that the 9/11 Commission was a bi-partisan group of honest and well-respected people and that there is no reason they would want to cover-up anything. Who are you more likely to agree with?

US government and 9/11 Commission are NOT covering up

48%

US government and 9/11 Commission are covering up

42

Not sure

10

Close to half (48%) agrees the U.S. government and 9/11 Commission are not covering up anything, yet nearly as many (42%) believe the government and 9/11 Commission are covering up. One in ten (10%) is unsure.

Both men and women and residents in each of the four regions are more likely to say the U.S. government and 9/11 Commission are not covering up anything. Majorities who agree include Republicans (64%), 50-64 year-olds, married adults, suburbanites (59%), Protestants, those with at least some college education, and people with annual household income of $50,000 or more (57%).

Majorities (50%-56%) of Democrats, 18-29 year-olds, Hispanics, single adults and those who are divorced/widowed/separated, residents of small cities, and adults with less education than a high school diploma believe the government and 9/11 Commission are covering up something. Nearly half of independent voters (48%) agree.

  1. World Trade Center Building 7 is the 47-story skyscraper that was not hit by any planes during the September 11th attacks, but still totally collapsed later the same day. This collapse was not investigated by the 9/11 Commission. Are you aware of this skyscraper's collapse, and if so do you believe that the Commission should have also investigated it? Or do you believe that the Commission was right to only investigate the collapse of the buildings which were directly hit by airplanes?

I am not aware of World Trade Center Building 7's collapse

43%

I am aware of it and think the Commission should have investigated it

38

I am aware of it and think the Commission was right to investigate just the Twin Towers' collapse

14

Neither/Not sure

5

A plurality (43%) is not aware of World Trade Center Building 7's collapse. Nearly as many (38%), though, are aware of it and think the Commission should have investigated it. People are least likely to be aware of the building�s collapse and think the Commission was right to investigate just the Twin Towers' collapse (14%).

Pluralities in many sub-groups are not aware of World Trade Center Building 7's collapse. This includes Republicans and independents, adults 30 and older, whites, residents of the East and Central/Great Lakes regions, and women.

Majorities of Hispanics (56%) and 18-29 year-olds (52%) and pluralities of Democrats and Southerners are those most likely to be aware of World Trade Center Building 7's collapse and think the Commission should have investigated it.

Those questions are loaded. Bush exploiting 9.11 and conspiracies are not related. People selling 9/11 DVD's exploited 9/11. Michael Moore exploited 9.11.

With statements like that what makes you any better than those you loath? You can't have it both ways. Do you want rules for everybody else that you don't agree with but you don't want to live by any rules yourselves? Good luck with that. Obama is still going to round you all up at the beckoning call of Wall Street bankers and put you in FEMA camps. Thats no conspiracy theory. That is a fact.

[-] 1 points by Frizolio (80) 2 years ago

I wasn't aware Alex Jones talked about that. I have done my own research. I really take what Jones says with a grain of salt.

I only vandalize the posts of those who contravene the forum rules. These people do not want to play by the rules. I don't owe them anything except pure freedom of speech like they desire. In their posts, I play by their rules. In serious threads, I make worded contributions.

[-] 0 points by Perspective (-243) 2 years ago

Also remember,freedom of speech doesn't exist on privately owned web sites. You want to stand on the corner and make speeches go for it. You want to post whatever on someone's site that they don't like you'll probably get booted. I got booted here once early on.Didn't complain,made my account again,and haven't had any problems here since.If forums were free for alls I'd say not much discussing would get done.

[-] 1 points by Jehovah (113) 2 years ago

The forums are free-for-alls and nothing does get done.

[-] 0 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

I'd like to see them try to talk about conspiracy theories in a graduate seminar on 16th century French song and dance. The teacher would boot them out, then they would rush to see the rector and cry that their freedom of speech was impeded upon.

A big problem is that these people only come here to posts about their nonsense to other people who already believe this nonsense. They just give each other cheap high-fives. You'll notice the conspiracy theorists on this site don't post in other threads. It's like they have their own isolated discussion that just floods the boards for the rest of us. They could easily find the proper forum to post on. There are many.

As for the OP, I don't understand why he contradicts himself. He asks us not the feed the trolls (whoever you decide these people might be), but then admits his post will most likely attract many trolls. It seems he is feeding them himself. I'm wondering if he has any integrity?

[-] 0 points by XXAnonymouSXX (455) 2 years ago

No because trolls see the word troll in the post headline and they run to it like flies to shit. That's why I knew you stinky trolls would be posting here. No ones falling for your psyops devide and conquer bullshit. BTW trying to stiffle peoples free speech under the guise that you are just using free speech is a tacky move Trashymask. Smart people can see right through your propaganda.

[-] 1 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

If you knew trolls would post here then you were feeding the trolls. Isn't that exactly what you ask people not to do? I don't understand your logic.

You should know Trashymask is not me. I don't post images in threads that don't break the rules, and I write good English. He'll be banned soon. I'll still be around.

If my goal was to flood your posting, I would have done it long ago.

[-] 0 points by XXAnonymouSXX (455) 2 years ago

Dude you are such a fucking liar. Man up and admit it when you do this childish, no babyish, bullshit. Kinda hard to believe that you were not responsible for it when the pics were posted only a minute after your comment. You are a fucking loser. I bet you were drooling when you were searching for those cock pics weren' t you. Yeah you were. Man up pussy.

[-] 1 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

It doesn't matter what you believe. The moderators can see the IP. Thrasymkay is stalking me by looking at the post listings on the right side of the screen. Here, let me show you. Post something anywhere on the forum and I'll post right after.

That's fine. He'll be banned soon, and I won't. I never posted images in threads that were on topic. He has and will get banned for it. If you don't believe me, just report him to the moderators.

If you had any brains, you would see that his style and targets are entirely different than mine.

[-] 0 points by XXAnonymouSXX (455) 2 years ago

You are the only one who does this pic posting marathon. Its not hard to create another alter ego on here and say he is from some obscure place and post dumb shit. This is your MO. I could create other characters and say its them not me. You might be schitzophrenic.

[-] 0 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

Take a moment to write a private message to jart or one of the many moderators. They can see the IPs. They'll be able to tell you I'm not Thrasymkay. You can ask them to ban him while you're at it. He has defaced good threads, not only threads that break the rules.

You shouldn't base yourself on assumptions, especially when it's so easy to check. That's David Ick-ish. Don't ruin your mind like that. Stop the conspiracy theories! They are killing your logic.

[-] 2 points by XXAnonymouSXX (455) 2 years ago

If I'm wrong I'm sorry. I just get fired up sometimes.

[-] 1 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

That's fine. If you want to know if it's me posting, just check my username. I only use characters from Plato's Republic and they are always spelled with a capital letter at the beginning. Some are spelled in French. I use: Thrasymaque, Glaucon, Socrate, Cephalus, and Adeimantus. Anyone else is not me.

However, you shouldn't take my word for it. Don't believe anyone around here. Just ask the moderators. They can confirm if a poster is who he pretends to be. Posing has others is not allowed on these boards and can be checked by cross-referencing the IP.

Here are things I never did, and will never do:

  • Swear
  • Call people names that attack minorities (like fag)
  • Deface legitimate posts
  • Pose as other users
  • Write bad English

Here are things I have done and will continue to do:

  • Deface posts that are against the rules (conspiracy theories, and spam)
  • Ridicule conspiracy theorists and spammers
  • Post good criticism and good support when appropriate
  • Engage in proper debate
  • Write good English
[-] 1 points by XXAnonymouSXX (455) 2 years ago

The moderators don't really do anything anyway. Maybe they are powerless as well.

[-] 0 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

Why are so many people complaining about censorship then? The moderators are not powerless, they just don't have the time to take care of all the nonsense around here. If they were paid for moderating, then all the conspiracy posts, the jew hater posts, the Ron Paul flooding posts, etc... would all be deleted. They are volunteers.
