Troll infestation---
 
We have a troll---Lots of smutty posts and rude nonsense answers--posted under a lot of different names.

Members---If you see signs of a troll---please hit the report button ( red dot !)

We have been swinging them around over our heads and throwing them over the garden fence---

It's fun--but is disturbing to new members who have never seen a troll before.

I'll see if I can give you 'special privileges' --Sort of like a deputy----

How about a troll hunting award? I would be even more diligent if you promised me an impressive looking certificate or something.

I don't need posse status or no stinkin badges! "Via con dios!" trolls!

I try to report them almost every morning( since I seem to be the only one up at the un godly hours I wake up) but 9 times out of 10 it will not go through.

Just curious. I think all I have found have newbie status. Isn't there a way for your system to catch them by ISP address rather than username?

By the way, the latest one I found had O'Mike as a username! I had to do a double take and then giggle even though it is not that funny.

Maybe because were deleting banning them at the same time your trying to report it/them.

oh'mike 07-21-2012 05:51 PM

Chrisn--when that happens--we have banned him as you were reporting---

I like hitting the red button.....

Can I be deputized as well? Oh, wait....too late....

creeper 07-21-2012 05:59 PM

What happens if several of us hit the red dot at the same time? Who gets the point?

oh'mike 07-21-2012 06:01 PM

This week we need a posse-----so head on over to the jail house and place your right hand on the bible---

If several people hit he red button at once---we have them listed in chronological order---

I think a gold Deputy star would be a good prize--

Let me see who has the keys to the prize closet.

Is it okay if I just report every post that everybody makes? I'm bound to get lucky and get a troll now and then, right? :)

I’m thinking a cheepo window air conditioner would be a better prize. :yes:

It’s 106 right now and I could defiantly use another one. :sweatdrop:

How many times do I need to hit the button??? :jester:


All times are GMT -5. The time now is 09:57 PM.
