    Hey, where have you been? Nice to see you back, welcome!

    Pappy
    Thanks! I got sick of all the crap over there and bailed. I even PMd the admin to have my account deleted (to show them my level of dissatisfaction with how they were running the joint). They didn't. I would check back once in awhile to see if things had gotten any better but they just got worse. Then I saw a thread about different boards and here I am...hoping this will be more of a well oiled machine.[/quote:cionukh9]

    You should never, ever, let them win like that. But, glad you're here...Here We Go Steelers, Here We Go!

    It only works if everyone resists the temptation to respond to the trolls and other idiots from the old board that will show up. Most of what they say is to get a response. Don't respond and they will leave or change their attitude.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    The problem is that with a memberlist of 50+ and growing, someone is bound to strike back... Then the crap begins.

    Now that you mention it where is the "Ignore" button. Do we not have that priviledge over here?

    I don't think it's installed..... It's all willpower. Personally I like stlrz ds' idea... Just boot 'em if they turnout to be trolls.

    We have to be careful here. I have had a difference of opinion with alot of guys and I'm sure they would have loved to label me a troll. We can't haphazardly start throwing the troll label around until someone truly deserves to be labeled one.
    If everyone had the same thought process then this board is going to become very boring, very fast.

    Personally I don't think anyone should get the boot unless they are continually posting offensive or purposefully inciting material.

    I also think the ignore button is a ridiculous tool. Why do you need to place someone on an ignore list like some kind of middle school girl? If you don't like what somebody is saying, can't you just ignore them on your own? It's nothing short of juvenile in my opinion.



    "I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

    I used the ignore tool on 2 posters on Trib. I didn't find it very helpful. The key will be jhansles' ability to find quality moderators. I don't think he'll have the resources to do it all himself once the site starts evolving in membership numbers.

    I'm sure J has something ready for the trolls. We will get a few from the Trib and a few from SN...but I have no doubt that our owner/admin knows how to properly deal with them.
