    I saw a funny meme that people say they have balls as a sign of strength, even though that's the weakest most sensitive part of their body. And they say someone is a pu$$y (Geesh, why is that word censored?)even though that part of the body can push out an 8 lb baby....

    I miss SJB and Goldenbullcow... bring them back and all will be fine.

    The problem ain't trolls .... njshredmachine was a troll and he was the greatest thing that ever happened to this place.

    Not going there, Betty; when's the next Atlantic storm, I'm deprived & now I'm depraved as a result of being deprived.

    DP-SUP! Great, great tread, hombre con huevos. I voted for making it greate againe.

    Speaking as one who has perhaps the largest number of troll stalkers, er, followers, they really don't bother me one bit. As someone noted, if goobers bother you, then you should perhaps be lurking not posting.

    As Carter once noted, the trolls never last butt the Legends do.

    I have no solutions. However, I have toned down the Hate over the past several months even though it won me big awards two years running.

    Maybe have a troll poll when someone is getting out of hand? Allow the members to vote on someone's trolling-ness, rather than have the mods impose the Wizard of Oz shiite from behind the Iron Curtain? I love mixed metaphors, don't y'all?

    And with the poll results then acted upon by simod666, that's a self-governing Fourume if The Loch Ness Trolls are banished from the Kingdomme.

    Although I gotta say that my pick is freedom of speech. Period.

    Calling another man a pussay is a way of saying that said man is a receiver of d!cks.

    I applaud you DP. I voted to make it great again. But there are much bigger issues I think.

    The trolls are annoying, and yeah some are funny. In my opinion though, the issue is that trolls come here, then veteran forum members act that way they do.. which they should. The end result though is those veterans getting banned. It's a vicious cycle. SS idea of ignoring them would help, but still. Members shouldn't be punished for defending there home turf against invaders.

    The mods also are a problem. At first I didn't think so. But a few recent events have opened my eyes. For instance...metard has posted porn before. He got banned, rightfully so. But it was like a week. A month? Come on. Not being able to say go kill yourself, which was a joke everyone here got...come on. It's just over the top. I realize the mods won't go away. But it's necessary for them to understand the culture so they know what's out of line and what's not, in context to the forum.

    this isn't just an internet forum. Many of us no each other. Many of us have traveled out of our home states and met other members. We're no strangers to each other. Which I think is pretty special and unique. When you see a member banned, it's more than just a stranger being silenced on the internet.

    I agree that the forum has ups and downs. But this time it does feel diffrent. I don't know. I hope not. I'm going to stick with it and keep my fingers crossed. But I got to say I am worried this time. I like this place and the future of the forum is unknown.

    Hopefully if we all stick with it, hold or ground, and follow some of the suggestions in this thread, everybody, including the mods, will lighten up

    I firmly believe that as a new administrator, Austin is being overly influenced by a couple of moderators who may be trying to take advantage by suggesting certain controls which they personally believe would make the site "better".

    In doing such, they are effectively silencing certain posters whom they may personally believe is creating what they perceive as a "negative influence".

    It never seemed to be an issue before. Obviously, there's a lot of clicks on this site. Otherwise, nobody would've been interested in purchasing the site and continuing to run ads on it. If there were any real problems before, they would've either fixed it, or let the site die.

    Neither happened. So why the changes?

    Maybe the mods just got bored being cuffed by Micah and not being able to flex the Moderator Muscle that they crave so badly, and saw Austin as a chance to create what they perceive as a "better path" for the site. Unfortunately, their actions as of late have proven that they lack the integrity to remain fair and impartial.

    Jeez, let the place run itself. As everyone here has seen, everybody can get their ya-ya's out and then step back and take a breather.

    Exactly. There was always banter and sh*t talking. It's not like we suddenly went crazy. We're the same we have ever been. Was never any need for this crap. Yeah an infraction here, a ban there...for a week tops. It was all good. No need for the change. As I stated in other threads, all its doing it's driving people away and in turn, ruining the site.

    But like I said, hopefully things turn around and everyone sticks around to see things go back to normal
