HOW TO . . . deal with trolls

Post by Katiedot on Thu Mar 22 2012, 12:04

What is a troll?Trolls (when they're hanging out on the internet and not underneath bridges) are sad individuals who get a kick out of the attention they get online. They don't particularly care what kind of attention they get, be it positive or negative, just as long as they get attention.

They're not open to reason, logic or discussion. All they want is a response to their posts and will post the most ludicrous or offensive things in order to get that reaction.

How to handle a troll:They take themselves very seriously and don't like humour so you can laugh at them.

But the thing they hate most of all is not getting a response. So when you see a post by a troll, just fight the urge to reply to their idiot rant and move on. Put them on ignore if you need to. That silence will stop a troll more effectively than anything else.

To ignore another poster on this site:
I don't really encourage this as this should be the kind of forum where we're mature enough to deal with other people even when we don't like them or agree with what they're posting, but if there's a poster who's truly pissing you off and ruining your time here, you can try this simple thing:

1. Go to your profile (the icon under the title bar, underneath where it says 'a friendly place for fans . . .' etc) and select the 'friends and foes' tab.

2. Type in the username of the person you want to ignore in the 'foes' section.

3. Save..

AWWW.... KATIEDOT the drill sergeant!
Let's bow down to Queen Katie for her word is doctrine.
Controlling and manipulating.
Promoting a bogus relationship for her client that proved to be a total fail.

KATIEDOT IS A PHONY who runs this forum claiming it's unofficial.
It's paid for by Clooney's publicist.
This is part of the PR NETWORK who have a monopoly on information released in the press about George Clooney.

Any information search on George Clooney on a search engine leads to her RANDOMLY CASUALLY FRIENDLY SITE run by this PR network. And their multiple sockpuppets.

Because, KATIEDOT is a manipulative liar. Promoting LIES for she claims that the most popular stories are GOSSIP What a Face about George's personal & relationships

LAZY USELESS KATIEDOT banned George CantStandYa, so I'm posting.
I'll be banned next, no doubt.
Even my Avatar was taken off.
Talk about totalitarian regime of a despot control freak.

The funny thing is that I haven't banned Can'tStandya. Just another lie from the nutjob.

I had Wolfgang Gunnerson on 'ignore' but she somehow crept back into my computer today. UGH I put her back on my black list.

I think it is WAAAY too transparent the fact that GCSY gets offended and then Wolfgang Gunnerson reappears suddenly. Sure gives credence to the allegation they are the same (schizophrenic) person.

Just saying......

I was thinking the same thing Lakin. Both are dripping with hate, although GCSY seems to be a little more 'wordsy.'

Well, if GCSY and WG are the same person, she is just using the other alias, hoping that no one will notice. Besides, how did GCSY get my real name? She was probably browsing the forum and found my "MM Meets Nick and Nina" thread, and clicked on the link that led to my Photostream account. Well, that was clever!!

She also asked my to emphasize with her about being called Fatty. So she thinks I'm a fatso, too, just by seeing my pics with Nick and Nina. If I told her to kiss my plump rump, asskiss1 that would be an all-day job for her (at least it would keep her busy).

I wonder how long she has been lurking on this forum before she decided to attack us? Well, she is a loser2

I don't think she's "clever" at all MM......

Predictable, Unimaginative, Uninteresting and Boring ...Yes.
Clever....No.

Haha MM - It's amazing how people can find out information from the internet. Interesting, GCSY somehow found out that Wolfgang Gunnerson sent me a pm a while back. Now how did she find that out? A pm is supposed to be shared between two people. Unless she and GCSY are one and the same. I'm inclined to think they are the same.

"How would you know that Cindigirl isn't the one in the video with Stan when Wolfgang apparently had only sent it as a private message to Cindigirl before he was booted off??? I remember reading it."

And I remember your picture and I think you're as pretty on the outside as you are on the inside. lip smack

After rummaging around some of the.. erm... posts on the forum today, all I can say is that I'm REALLY glad I don't visit other forums related to George. I'm pretty sure I would need a case of Maalox and a few stiff drinks before reading. Rolling Eyes

MGK, agree about alter but mine would be younger,richer,thin, and healthy oh and GTC ya he'd be the boyfriend of the moment. After GTC, I'd steal Ryan G. away from Evil Mendes, he'd be my sloppy seconds. Yes that's right I want it all!

My favorite saying "BE Careful What You Wish For Little Girl cause you just might get it". Nah I'm just joking with MGK, if I'm gonna fantasize I go for it, cause I know it won't happen.
