Why is this not enforced enough

III. Trolling, Trolls:


* Trolls are people who for no reason want to disrupt a forum topic by constantly posting out of context posts, derogatory comments, throwing insults, making personal attacks and deliberately inciting a negative response from other members. This is called trolling; in public forums and won't be tolerated here.
* Users or groups of users who continue to attack other members because of their views and opinions, attempting to beat them down or demean them, will have posts deleted and may be banned.

I do see posts being removed, But why does this site continue to let the trolls troll the forum?

Never understood this?

Think this is more of a feedback than misc topic.

Trolls are people who for no reason

That counts me out then.

Um.. we do enforce the rule. You just said you've seen posts by trolls being deleted- we delete them because they're trolling posts and issue warnings/infractions where necessary.

Drawing a line between "banter" and "trolling" is very difficult, and opinion of each is subjective really.

Because the mods are crap?

Whether something is a troll post is fairly subjective. If the forum rules were taken literally then so many would be banned that there probably would be no Misc. Everyone would just move on somewhere else which would not be good for HUKD's income flow.

Someone's personal opinion/belief isn't trolling, just because others disagree with it.

Although in most cases like this it's obvious if it's a wind-up or not :whistling:

Half of the problem is, some people cannot disagree with another person without making some personal swipe at them

Looking at what gets posted. most users troll in one sense or another even the mods, but perhaps trolling should be more indicative to personal insults ,

I can see how that can be difficult to determine, But i think what i am getting at is that the site allows the those that troll to continue and be persistent doing it,

We all know that it does drive other away from the site which is there choice to do so, But unfair on that member.

Yes you guys do what needs to be done and cannot be on every thread at all times,

Yes there is limited resources for the moderators to use.

And it does sometime takes time for reports to seen as you work from the earliest one received.

I feel imo that the site need's to be enforced more on the code of conduct/rules etc
But you do get the members that get infractions etc but continue to disobey whats been put in place.


If you want the Quality and behavior that goes on in the forum its needs to be said for any improvements to be made or Queries to be addressed.

Exactly. If I saw a post that personally insulted somone I'd report it. Nearly everything else you just take with a pinch of salt and pass on by... it's only the internet at the end of the day.... much more important things in life :)

Give the power back to the people - leave threads spammed if it's member spammed. Increase the number of people it takes to spam a thread if need be.

Well it's true, people get suspended for anything, but trolling and making fake competitions just to cause arguments is allowed.
