Is there any possible way to remove an ignorant troll from the forums?

EvilMonkey or the webmaster would have to come back.

Not unless they get waaay out of line. The "so-called" troll is apart of almost every forum and quite frankly i like to observe how people deal with them. I believe it reveals a lot about a person's character.

^ I agree with tropicalheatwave. But in the time being foe not to see their posts and hit report on all posts that you think break terms of the website - at some point the people in charge will deal with the reports.

The Foe button has often been suggested and little it has been made use of.

How do you define a troll? I think the word is easily misued, especially when someone does not agree with another's opinion.

I agree. Most often those who are quick to call others troll aren't much different than those they label as troll. A troll calling others a troll.

I would say one who does or says something with the intent of starting conflict between members. Which isn't always a bad thing.

"Troll" may not have been the best word to use here. I'm sorry. (I was annoyed and in a bad mood when I wrote this post). I'm sorry again.

However, is it necessary to say the username of this person? I think we all know who I'm talking about. Someone on the forums who is very rude, insults everyone (and I mean everyone) on DM, and judges people they don't even know.

I would like to do us all a favor and have this person banned from DM.

Or you could take responsibility for yourself & your own reactions & ignore this person instead of expecting Evil Monkey to do it for you. Its all a part of growing up and learning how to deal with adversity and not hiding behind someone else.

According to what is apparently EvilMonkey's definition of the word, Sheena did harass me. :x

I'm new here, and I've already come across two accounts in which Sheena was being very rude and insulting. She called this guy a cheapskate for asking for help on the board where one is supposed to ask for help. From the way I see people react about said person, I think Sheena should be banned from all the forums. She has targeted from what I've seen so far, people that are already distressed. It's disgusting, and it needs to stop.

There are more trolls and bullies that are running around than just Sheena. The mods are not really active and I doubt they would care. And this has been going on for a long time. Welcome to DM.

Hmm. What is it that I smell? People stirring up the pot again? No wonder they managed to bully everyone away.

Oh, I almost forgot. The one and only Moderator also left after that.

Well, that's unfortunate. Some people are just needlessly rude, and it saddens me. sigh

What do you mean by "rude"? I've been called "rude" for standing up for myself! :x

No, I'm calling people like Sheena rude. Of course you need to stand up to yourself!

Nope. I'll put them in the ignore list if I were you. Been there done that. And it usually leads to a long drama, hateful words on both sides, putting the blame on others, our only (sometimes) active mod sighing etc. There just are really just hardcore trolls/bullies out there. Just put them on your ignore list.

I’ve only been here a few days and already noticed them, and the vague Vorlon one liners with occasional insults. If it was on my own little forum I’d just delete them, or put them on ignored so they don’t know no one can see them.
On a forum like this that’s left to itself, I find it best to ignore them, not acknowledge them at all. Just answer people’s post nicely as if the troll post doesn’t exist.
