I've Decided... That If They Post Like A Troll, Get Voted As A Troll, And I've Never Heard Of Them..

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by REP (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Then they're a troll.

Am I wrong ?

1. As you wish

I will vote based upon the post and the thread.

And doesn't this belong in the Meta forum?

4. Oh... It's Going There... If I'm Lucky...

It's just that... many of us find the Meta a very sad place at DU.

Sort of like purgatory...

7. I don't know. I don't follow any of the "backstory" around here, so I don't know what to do.

I don't like people who treat other people poorly and that's what trolls do.

11. Agreed... I Have Sometimes Let My Temper Get The Best Of Me... But...

I'm talking mostly about Jury Duty here...

But I've also found myself giving less and less slack to stuff that is on the margins...

13. I still cling to the idea that there are rules, and that all that isn't forbidden is permitted.

That goes back like 900 years to Maimonindes. It still makes sense as a way to run an Internet board in the 21st Century.

14. That does not mean anyone who believes something that you don't is a troll -

does it?

I mean, people can have differences of opinion without being trolls - can't they?

Or does being a troll hunter mean being judge, jury and executioner?

15. Locking

This doesn't meet the SoP of this Forum, but would fit in Meta quite nicely.
