is this another filth/bg1/jfk witch hunt? if so should be in misc.

or is this an example of the clever trolling that your refering to?

trolling is now condoned to a certain extent it seems by recent events,which is why everyone is jumping on the bandwagon

It seems that any comment that someone doesn't agree with or can't understand in context is labelled as 'trolling'.

I've just been accused of trolling because I asked questions about abstaining from things in a thread about fasting.

Go figure.

Not sure why you condone any of the above who do troll users (Not saying all of them do or one of them particularly does as that would be 'witch hunting' as you say, they know who they are and there intentions).

Besides them there has been a few today not the usual trollers above who do mask there trolling in side questions or straight forward questions aimed at disrupting or annoying members into a reaction.

Not going to label the thread as theres no point people 'witch hunting' again.

Admins know through the people who report the trollers.

I don't think its fully condoned I think they just don't come harsh enough on the continuing trollers. Surely if they continually do it why do they have so many suspensions, surely 3-4 times is enough before its obvious that they only troll users rather then adding to the forum.

Yep,maybe I was a bit harsh saying its fully condoned,and will edit my post,agree with you ref the above,one user in particular has been suspended numerous times in the past couple of weeks for trolling,but still it continues,surely a further infraction should result in a permanent ban?

Well if there is enough proof with any user who does this over and over again without any benefit to the forum or any positive input surely that's enough for me to say (only my opinnion), that he/she has no place on the forum and has been given enough warnings.:?

Says the person who trolls in threads, and posts pictures of Nazis in threads about 'legends'.

It's obvious to anyone looking on, and it's getting a little stale.

What is clever trolling? I've never heard of that before. I'd also like to know what you mean when you say "Fair few for stupid comments made to cause a reaction..." I've tried reading it allowed, but I'm afraid I'm at a loss.

Try reading again without the obvious mistake? Won't let me edit.

Clever trolling in my opinnion is pretending to be interested in the positive things in the subject matter and trolling for a reaction to jump on and defend/attack.

Who exactly is this aimed at? This is a deals site, and I contribute a fair few deals.

There are certain members who do nothing but antagonise people that they have labelled as 'trolls' without posting anything else.

I can be 'controversial' but at least I'm honest.

That's just a way of pointing out flaws in a person's idea - it's a valid form of debate, not trolling.

Is it just people disagreeing in this way that you object to?:?

"In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional or disciplinary response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."

That's the Wikipedia definition.:thumbsup: As if you didn't know :thumbsup:

I've been thinking more about what you mean by clever trolling. If Socrates were alive today, I think he would have said that the sophists of antiquity were trolls; for they often engaged others in dialogue with the purpose of embarrassing others enjoined in the conversation by exposing their flawed thinking. Although Socrates often exposed flaws in people's thinking, he did not do it through mischief or malice, but rather did it in pursuit of Truth.

Guys we've gone over and over this.

We do not condone or allow trolling in any way, however there is a fine line between a discussion that you personally do not like/agree with, and a thread/comment which has been deliberately posted to incite an argument.
