Journal: New trolltalk for real trolls 1

Journal by gnillort

I want to create a new trolltalk for the few real trolls left. Unfortunately, I have no way of banning other, not so savory, trolls from posting to this new trolltalk. Any suggestions? The only thing I could think of was a password-protected EZ Board.

Journal: (non?) Modbombing 1

Journal by gnillort

I'm new to this whole concept of mod-bombing, so please help me out and tell me what is missing/added to my definition. I have two e-mails below:
1. An email from me to Rob Malda (CmdrTaco) telling him about a (in my eyes) modbombing incident
2. An email from Rob Malda to me telling me that it isn't modbombing

NOTE: This is in no way intended to be disrespectful to Rob. I am very grateful for him taking his time to respond to this, and for him allowing users to e-mail him. I am just doing this to determine what modbombing actually is, because I apparently have a wrong definition.

    recently, 3 of my comments were moderated as overrated in a two minute span. I think that whoever moderated those 3 comments is the same person, so I wanted to notify you.

    Honestly I think these mods are fine- the first 2 are still scored 4 &
    3... an "Overrated" mod is completely appropriate if the moderator felt
    that they weren't good enough to warrant the higher score...

    The last one is just feeding a flamer/troll. You should ignore them.

    And don't email from yahoo.com- I filter it as spam. Its a miracle I
    noticed this.

What don't I understand about mod-bombing which makes this not a mod-bombing incident? All I know about mod-bombing was acquired from sllort's Modbombing Disable HOWTO for Slashdot. Any insight?

It's funny.  Laugh.

Journal: The Sporks-R-Us crowd 3

Journal by gnillort

What's wrong with Vladinator and his assorted compatriots? He comes into Trolltalk and asks everyone there to lick his scrotum, then he asks one person is particular to lick his scrotum, and then he brags on Sporks-R-Us that when he posted on "fagtalk", everyone replied calling him gay! Whoever is crapflooding trolltalk with Vlad-hate message isn't helping any though, as trolltalk is the only place left for trolls to meet.

Always leave room to add an explanation if it doesn't work out.

Working...
