Banning rumour-mongering trolls

Just a thought.

Oski Wee Wee,

It's a good thought, but what I've been finding works is to look at the thread's author and then ignore the notorious offender.

Granted. I have cut down on the temptation to feed into the jollies of the notorious offender, but it can be trying. LOL :smiley:

Oski Wee Wee,

I say we beat the snot out of them half time. :slight_smile:

I like the option that is built into a lot of other message boards I frequent where you can "filter" posts by specific authors. So if you know one person in particular drives you up the wall every time they speak, you can just not "see" their posts electronically.

That's a good idea but not too likely to materialize anytime soon on a site that still hasn't fixed the time of post issue. Most other forums allow you to set your timezone on your profile page, but not here. grumble, grumble

If anyone thinks that rumours offered in some threads have less value than most of the 2 bit opinions found on these threads, I'm thinking someone takes themself too serious.

Of course. Somebody has to. :smiley:

When I come up with "breaking news" from "sources close to my aunt's third cousin in the league office," I'll look to the levity police around here for a credibility badge.


Oski Wee Wee,

Oh why not..... IT'S HAIKU TIME!

Open up a thread
Rumour mongering troll time
Twilight Zone returns

Now THAT is good Thursday haiku! :smiley:

Mark, you're brilliant.

My head is hurting.
All these threads full of nonsense.
Think I need a beer.

I find the price of broccoli very reasonable these days.

I like broccoli :smiley:

Rumor or the truth?
Mikey likes his broccoli
Mama is happy

Yet they lock another thread critical of the chief rumour mongerer saying it was too personal. Well, perhaps if they dealt with the cause of the problem, we wouldn't have to keep griping.

And to have mod work done by team employees is a bit much, but that's how they want to work it.

how can you be a itcats fan living in montreal? aren't you too busy with your habs and gossip about jose theodore

Is there any Ticat player, coach or fan that you don't hate?

How come McMahon didn't tip us off to today's trade?

He did, it's on the CFL's main forum, he's trying to convince people that he posted it a whole 3 minutes before it happened.

Do you get the feeling McMahon will walk into a Walmart with an Uzzi some day?

Have to admit it’s pretty sad when the team itself condones some of the crap being tossed around here.
Any post that attacks a mans physical appearance or is just straight out malicious insults, ie: Erdman is a worthless sack of crap should be deleted without question.

I’d love to hear from any Mod as to why a thread making a joke of a rumor monger gets
locked but users can say pretty much anything they want against a player or coach and it stays.

5. No personal attacks - These forums are not a place for you to take cheap shots at somebody because he/she did something. Do that some place else (or better yet, get over it). You have been warned. Personal attacks, threats, and just plain impolite posts will be removed and that user will be banned.
