Breaking News: JR is using a language analyzer to zot trolls!
Shhhh! It's a secret. | 5/14/2012

Posted on 05/14/2012 11:42:53 PM PDT by BuckeyeTexan

"I was zotted and came back, then zotted again and came back, then hit again and came back and finally just got bored with the constantly hypocritical stances and didn't return after my last zot. The interesting thing is that JR tipped his hand in zotting me. I know for a fact that he's using a language analyzer program, as my IP was continually changing thanks to a few perks I have from my employer."

This is something I suggested to someone at FR years ago. People use language in a way that is characteristic to them. With enough examples, it’s possible to spot further examples with a pretty good reliability. FR has a huge database that would be excellent for data mining.

Cool. When you wake up, you might be interested in reading the article excerpted here.

A zot occurs when a troublesome poster, usually a newby troll(though there may be some long time freeper who gets huffy and decide he/she wants to leave the site in a spectacular fashion), gets kicked off the site. Yet, the fun occurs when wise posters wish to “toy” with such a poster for a little bit, hence the appearance of pictures of “viking kitties” and bolts of lightning; wise ass retorts to such an one may also be posted...before the admin mods boots the miscreant into the fiery liberal internet abyss!

Wellllllllllllllllllllll..........not necessarily, no. It usually means the thread gets yanked (it's too stupid or offensive or, sometimes, just a 'repeat' of another thread).

Doesn't necessarily mean the poster is actually "banned".

Yep, the old language analyzer: If it sounds stupid, and is stupidly put, then it deserves the ZOT!!!

Amazing how the Leftists DUmmies think they are so clever and have to attribute some super technology as the reason why they are "caught out".

A zot is what happens when someone who effectively expresses an opinion contrary to that of some long time freeper who gets huffy and decides he/she wants the person who holds the contrarian opinion and is not convinced by the long-time freepers brilliant arguments to leave the site in a spectacular fashion.

Usually the “zot” is preceeded by the offending poster being called newbie, n00b, troll, etc. by the long-time freepers who have decided to get together and alert the mods that the troublesome poster is not agreeing with them.

You shouldn’t have to ping the Mods. We have a “lanaguage analyzer” that will take care of it automagically.

Standard beebers came out before the language analyzer. I think you can download an upgrade, but you have to root your beeber first.

Just setting the tone here, and doing the prep work. You know. It's all in a days pay.

Thanks for the ping, BT!

what is TOS?

I am TOL. Does that help?

Just kidding, Sabre. It's "The Other Site" where the FR haters go to scheme and plot how they're going to utterly destroy Free Republic for zotting them.

The only thing they've succeeded in doing is to make life heck for n00bs here. They sign up here to cause trouble, disrupt our reasonable conservative conversations, and try to get some of us zotted by Himself. So n00bs are sent through the gauntlet before they're accepted.

Well, that's always been the rulez, I guess. I remember being raked over the coals eleven years ago, but (I think) my ignorance saved me more than once, LOL!

Anyway, we really have to get some troll detectors and spray, for they're causing all sorts of trouble here.

I don’t remember receiving any noob treatment myself. But I started out really low key and didn’t post much for the first year or so. I started out as a lurker and then when I did sign up I think it took me a long time to get into posting comments.

A zotted FReeper is someone who has lost his posting privileges.

It is as simple as that. Don’t listen to the trouble-making political spin for the reasons for a zot.

For the most part, zots are administered for all the right reasons, but people are human and occasionally make mistakes. All in all, the mods and the owner do a fine job of managing zots.

Yeah, I lurked too. For about five minutes, LOL! I loved this site from the first moment I stepped in here.

Some of what are now my old friends really looked out for me when we first met, and they helped a lot with my FReducation.

I did survive, obviously. But I’m not particularly a low-key kinda OldHag (as they call me on TOS, LOLOLOL!)

And we are full circle. [smiles]

Maybe after the 3rd or 4th ZOT you should have gotten a clue that you are out of sync with this blog. Maybe instead of a software system you just need an attitude adjustment.

If you will observe the quotation marks in the article, you will see that the OP was quoting someone else who got zotted multiple times.

Free Republic is not a blog. Please do not insult the site by calling it one.

You might want to lurk and learn, and make yourself familiar with all the facts before you berate a long-time, respected FReeper like BuckeyeTexan.

And welcome to Free Republic. You’re pretty feisty. [smiles]
