Elune, A Troll Friendly Environment!

This seems to be very true. When boredom strikes, I usually resort to trolling for a few minutes before I log. A while back, I started a DK on the Fizzcrank server. Boredom struck and sure enough, after only about 3 minutes of light trolling I got a slap on the wrist by Blizzard with a three hour ban. This is especially funny because on Elune, that would never happen. One could sit in trade for hours on end if they'd like, and troll away. We have our share of butthurts and cry babies, but for the most part, we all tend to get a good laugh out of our server's trolls.

Troll friendly? Light hearted? I am not sure what it is, but you guys rule. :)

Except that unthinking people who couldn't reason their way out of a mental paper bag like to toss the word "troll" around like Jesse Jackson bellowing into a snowstorm that it's filled with prejudice because it's white.

I have zero patience for literal trolls, and used to waste a lot of time trying to refute their (typically far-left) lies with facts. But eventually it occurred to me that there ARE, in fact, literal trolls, and so nowadays I tend to just grit my teeth and ignore them (not /ignore, because after 8 years I still have 0 people on /ignore and prefer to keep it that way).

Spending hours parked at Sot7S or SW, tossing overboard verbal hooks about how Obama is God and we should all join together in worshipping him, is typical of what Elune trolls love to do. Mostly they're just preaching to the choir, since the vast majority of WoW players are younger people with little to no actual life experience. It is very easy to spout textual platitudes about how wonderful Socialism / Collectivism is when your folks are paying all of your bills for you, or you're a twenty-three-year-old single man fresh out of college with a law degree, staring an easy 160k-a-year in the face just for flapping your gums all day, and texting encouraging-sounding lies to your clients.

You can't argue with literal trolls in Tradechat, because again--they're just preaching to the choir. Speak out in defense of Liberty or any judeo-christian moral precept formerly cherished by Westerners, and immediately a cavalcade of outrage from brainwashed parrots floods your chatscreen. History for these know-nothings began when their magnificent selves entered into the world; the thought that any of the people who lived and died before them created anything worth preserving and passing along to others is wholly alien to their narcisstic worldviews.

There is no worse, more degrading insult to me than to be labeled a "troll" for simply trying to get trolls to "Ess Tee Eff You", aka stop spewing Leftist propaganda in Tradechat. Hence why I no longer bother. Let the trolls spout their kiddy utopian gibberish. Living well is the best revenge, and irl I do that just fine. Trolls be damned.

Why you, Tendensensei, take any pleasure or delight in willfully labeling yourself as a "troll" is beyond me. Nor do I even know, in actually, what you think you're doing, since so far as I know or can tell I have never seen your name in tradechat...

You don't spend much time in Retro.

Don't worry. You aren't missing anything.

Shut the Heck up brenda, you wanna be woman, do you ever think about what you say before typing it? You pretend to be everything that you are not and you still think your words have meaning when clearly they do not. do the entire world a favor, either never speak again or just get rid of your computer and never get another one ever again. ppl like you, think they need to voice thier opion and doing so, some of the ppl that do care end up listening and ruin the world all due to your rants, even on forums you have diarrhea of the mouth!


...

Thanks for acting like you know me or anything about me, when I neither know you, recognize your name, nor have any idea why you're so filled with rage at a total stranger.

INSANITY INC is your guild huh? Reminds me of the old addage: "Words mean things."

Logic dicates that in reality you must be some far-leftie whom is harboring rage over me having previously blown either you or one of you buddies out of the water in Tradechat, by refuting your ranting with facts.

The poster of this thread seems like a good-natured fellow, not unlike Grandmaster, who also carelessly claims to be a "troll" when in fact he just likes to chat with people.

Literal "trolls" talk to people exactly as the above person I quoted talked to me here. They rage, they hate, they spew endless negativity designed to do nothing but stir up ugly emotions in others.

THAT'S a "troll", people.

Not just some good-natured guy chattin' in Trade about life, the universe, and everything, ala the poster of this thread and the aforementioned Grandmaster.

Elune has long had a dark side to its REAL trolls. Rabid anti-Christian bigotry is epidemic among these people; along with hatred of anything and everything that could be remotely considered traditional, religious, or historical in any positive sense.

The dude who raged on me here is obviously either one of them, or a sympathizer. There's no other explanation for a total stranger spewing vicious hatred at me.

People like that are what inspired me to post here. Again, Elune has LONG had an ugly undercurrent among its "trolls" who seek simply to attack and hurt any and all who don't embrace far-left views. I've learned to watch out for them, and increasingly to ignore them, but they're out there. And they're VICIOUS. ><

THIS! This whole thread is why I love Elune and stayed here after server jumping for years. There are calm rants and there are hateful rants and there are excited rants. Really though, almost all are entertaining rants. Love you guys!

Brenda seems to have a real hard time understanding some very basic concepts.

1) People will disagree with you. That does not make them anti-tradition or a perpetrator of 'rabid anti-Christian bigotry'

2) His extreme views and the constant need to try to force them on people cause most of the vitriolic responses to him, not some deep seeded hatred of liberty or Christianity

He very readily perpetuates the same principles he seems to hate; it's rare that one of his rants doesn't include some anti-Islamic comments (generally lumping all Muslims into the 'Extremist' category, or making disparaging comments about all Muslims in the line of 'all those whack-a-doodle Muslims', etc), or some drastic either-or cases (ie you either agree with his viewpoints or you're rabidly anti-Christian)

At the end of the day, he generally just spends his time trying to attack and hurt any and all who don't embrace far-right views.

Ignoring most of your hyperbole, let me point out the main difference between me and literal trolls:

I DON'T TROLL, PERIOD.

I've never instigated a topic in Tradechat. Never. Not once.

All I've ever done is RESPOND--upon very rare occasion--to an already-existing topic being bantered about in Trade. Typically only when it's some creep who's been going on and on and on and on (etc) about something which is patently offensive in nature.

See the difference there?

Being the antagonist in no way relieves you of the title troll. You participate equally perpetuating the topics and are a nuisance exactly as they (trolls) are.

With so much trolling going on, maybe new factions should be formed, Trolls and Un-trolls. There could be tabards a vendor, maybe mounts as well (I suggest a flying pig), perhaps in the next expansion. What about trolling achievies on the troll faction side and troll busting achievements on the un-troll side. What about a rap battles system? Like epic rap battles of history only between the trolls and un-trolls. I could hear it now "EPIC RAP BATTLES OF HISTORY Tendensensei vs Brenda GO!!" Just an idea, blizz can't police trolling, maybe they shouldn't they should make it work for them level up come'yon!!!!

I see a difference between challenging what is grossly unacceptable (for which you can report), and waiting for any opportunity to eviscerate verbally those who you deem 'stupid' or 'inferior' to your considerable intellect :P Personally, i find the second much more disturbing, and more deserving of the troll tag.

Wrayth is spot on.
