What we need is an EASY Button. Every day, especialy early morning, we are invaded by trolls, especialy on the local boards who's only purpose is to sign up and disrupt. Even though we FReepmail the mods about them sometimes it takes hours to get them removed. Teddy WAlmat and the many variations of thet name and many other. It would be nice to have an alarm button where we could just flush these guys down the old tube in short order.
its called the ‘Report Abuse’ button
Yea, we have to deal with the Perrybots spanning this site...posting article after article, puff piece after puff piece, even now, when Perry is a has-been.
easy is IB4z.
Local boards don’t have an abuse button.
The same guy/gal has been signing up for weeks, usually in the early morning. He/she/it never posts on the general board. By the time we report to the Mods the guy's used all kinds of profanity, etc. Just a general nuisance on the local board.
Mods is mods because they’s mods.
Bad vanity, bad vanity; go sit in the corner.
I find that troll amusing.
He’s persistent. Hard to rile him up though..
Oh I thought he was kinda fond of you though.
Glad you, at least, aren’t crying to Daddy.
I never read the Texas posts. Wonder if I should...
There is no such thing as an abuse button on a state board..I freepmail the mods..but it takes time..and sometimes a lot of time for results.
Our Texas board is very active.
I'm loved by all, both great and small.
We can't have a system where everyone can just go around pushing a button on anything they don't like.
We also have the option of totally ignoring them, the moderators will catch them soon enough.
Yep you should, lots of good honest discussion there.
Nice post fellow TXFREEPER, screw you other 49+[etc.] State/Country/Territory/Province/Entity FREEPERS!
Seriously, we needed the humor here, right?)
Without the trolls, though, how would Viking kitties sharpen their claws? :-)
There is something creative on the conservative live interactive forum on channel #americapolitics on the undernet server of IRC called Rule 8.
Its a script where fellow chatters, who are not recent signups, can vote one time either aye or nay on another chatter - and if that person gets 5 ayes they get an automatic ban of 3 hours. A nay vote cancels an aye vote. No votes in 15 min resets the counter. The bans are on the IP of the chatter and increase in duration the more times a chatter gets rule 8’d out of the channel.
It gets a little ugly sometimes when the trolls and liberals gang up and nay each other to prevent a ban. But over all it really works well to get rid of the liberals and trolls as well as adds a fun way to fight back at the liberals and trolls.
If the mods are interesting mail me and I can get you the script.
They are not there to debate sniper, only to disrupt, they are worse than trolls, they are scum.
