What Happened??

Recommended Posts

There was a really popular thread called "What is a troll" that, as far as I could see, was very entertaining and informative - people were posting like mad in it.

 

And then it just disappeared into the cornfield.

 

Did someone post garbage in it to get it shut down?

Yes, what did happen?  Were we spammed or some such thing?

Not sure what the internet term for an intrusion would be.

Let's hope this thread doesn't get tainted by mean-spirited trolls too who just want to create mischief.  There are plenty of other topics around for anyone who wants a serious discussion.

Someone was antagonized? I didn't see that.

 

I'd have thought only a troll would be angry at such a topic - and I'm very surprised that one would admit as much by posting in it.

 

Who was it? You can answer that in a pm - don't want you getting in trouble by saying the name publicly.

I guess if you have someone on ignore you wouldn't necessarily see the nasty bombs a troll may be planting in your thread, would you?  Why wouldn't the moderator just remove those nasty personal remarks instead of shutting down a good discussion?

Oh, I get it now. Wow, they must've been some pretty nasty bombs.

 

All I saw in the "What is a troll" thread was lots of people having a highly enjoyable discussion.

 

Were there many bombs - or just one big one?

Yeah, and some my BEST WORK recently was done in THAT one!!!

 

In fact, and all modesty aside(and not that that's my "strong suit" anyway, ya know) but I loved my take-off of Der Bingle in it SO much, I ALMOST took a page out of somebody's book around here and "Liked" my OWN POST!!!

 

LOL

 

(...oh well...such is life, huh?!)

Yeah, that sucks. You should have copied and pasted it somewhere. When I think of all those lost limericks on the old George Brent thread. :(

You missed a good one, Rey. I think it was the most popular thread ever created maybe. Like 50 responses in 15 minutes.

 

Complete mystery as to why it was taken away. I'm told someone put bombs in it.

 

That just seems wrong - that a moderator would let a thread be ruined by one person when everyone else was having such a great discussion.

 

If there's any justice, the moderator will remove whatever the offender said and return the thread to activity.

I missed it, and apparently some of Dargo's finest work. ;) Too bad one bad apple has to go and ruin the fun. Shouldn't his or her comments be removed and the thread remain?

 

Yes. It was a really good discussion. Except for the part I couldn't see, apparently.
