It's not that last night's troll necessarily uses bad lanuage, its just that she takes on several identities and ties up the board with inane useless things. In addition, makes very rude, inflammatory comments. If you felt it appropriate to ban her once, why hesitate to find out the rest of her addresses and ban them all?
Minn - on the other thread you said you didn't see any other posts of this persons that needed deleting. Maybe you didn't see this thread??? http://www.terrificpets.com/forum/10705_3.asp BTW - it is obvious to see she is both people there.
Some times I don't look at the posts that are of people posting pictures of their dogs on dogster, so I didn't notice that one. I'll skip through it and delete posts. Also, I cant see the IP of posters. I can only see the user name, just the same as you guys. I have no idea what peoples IPs are. (I think this will change when the new TP goes live). I can only ban the name, not the IP. I also am not sure that BorderGirl was the same person as Doggie-girl/BCB. THus, banning BorderGirl wouldnt' have banned the other person anyway.
Oooh, okay. I had the idea that you could see the IP addies under the names or something, so that you could wipe out all of a person's screen names using the 1 or 2 IP addresses they have. Looks like you got the one IP effectively because she is not signing on at the same time as herself, but logging in and out to talk to herself. Often.
I was there in the thick of it last night...other than giving me nightmares about scaly green chicks with hair sprouting in weird places, I guess I thought it was kinda fun. But I do think those folks are a bolt short of a load, and may be the same person talking to him/herself, as harmless, yet annoying as that is... There are few people up late at night and other than making the threads long as a chat room, I'm not sure there is any harm done. I enjoy hunting trolls. There were so many last night we ran out of jars to keep them in.
Yah, Gina: It was about 2am here when she gave up and went away, although I have been on till almost 5am before. The TP becomes slower and more frustrating the later it gets. It was moving along last night pretty good, but that is after 3am,or 4am, your time, I think.
Kittys Mom, I have wondered about that everytime someone mentions it. How do you know it is an 11 year old just because that is what they say? Almost everything else they say is a lie, and just trying to start trouble. So, why would they be honest about the age.
You know when I first did this, I was so hot for it...I gushed to my dog class instructor about it. She sneered, oh, I hate those things. Shocked, I asked why. She said it turns guys on to hear women talk about pets... Now a mo. ago there was a poster that had that feel to it, insincere, you know. When I mentioned this story, the poster abruptly disappeared, and never returned, I was pretty sure that was one of those. This BCB, Snoppy, Doggirl thing is queer enough to be a child. And creepy enough to be something from a movie. She/they were literally argueing w/ themselves last night, it was funny to watch.
Wow! I guess it has to written over the Internet, because my husband doesn't get turned on when I talk about my pets. Maybe kinky guys. The bad spelling could be intentional. I can't see an 11 year old getting a thrill arguing about pets, when there are so many other topics out there.
Yah, I bet your husband doesn't look in windows at night, or spend inordinate time w/ a magazine, alone. I bet I'm more fun than a darn magazine. Besides, I'm sexy and 25 yrs. old w/ large...hee hee... well I was 20 yrs. ago.
So now if you have to keep banning names. Won't it make it harder for others choosing usernames down the road. It will lower the amount of possibilities won't it. Soon we will be numbers. It would be good to ban just the IP insteadd of numerous names.
I have been saying all along that it is an insult to the "serious" teenage posters here to assume these trolls are children or teenagers. This is the internet folks, people like that do not tell the truth. They can be anyone or anything they want to be behind the computer screen. As for women talking about pets being a "turn-on, Well that is 1 sick puppy. What could my pet possibly do to turn someone on? Other than chewing on my panties and bras? LOL
