It doesn't really matter to me if they were a troll or not. I just think that some of the posts you made (and what others have made in previous threads) were totally unnecessary. I just think if I were a lurker on this website and saw those posts, regardless of how much knowledge with dogs I had, there's no way in hell I'd sign up.
I don't get the point of publicly telling people off or making a scene (on the internet, lol) when it could be reported (or even ignored) instead and Pugger could just close the thread, ban the user and be done with it.
This is the only forum I know that is becoming smaller and it's kind of sad to see so many good people leaving because they can't handle the "fighting", and nor should they have to imo.
every forum will have forms of fighting.... its human nature.... there is arguemnts in the workplace, social settings etc.... people seem to be a bit more blunt over the net as they feel they can hide behind a computer screen...... ive always beleived that if you wouldnt say it to the person face to face tehn you probably shouldnt say it over the net.....
jsut using that as an example... i dont know the back story to this troll so im not gonna comment on that....
I understand your point silvershadow, and I also acknowlegde that it isn't good for a forum for new members or lurkers to see that.
By the same token, it isn't fair to allow people to spend time answering threads by someone who is purely here to have fun at their expense. Sometimes this type of person needs to be exposed. It also serves as a warning of sorts to others who might choose to do the same thing and have fun at other's expense.
If I was a regular at calling people out for trolling or whatever, then I would feel that you chastising me would be warranted. However, I rarely if ever point the finger publicly at people who I suspect of trolling. In this instance, the story was becoming so ludicrous I simply felt that I had to call them on it.
A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
An optimist sees the glass as half full;
A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.
I do apologise for getting so snappy. I wasn't angry at you specifically, you were just the most recent to attack one.
and in the end it was all pretty funny LOL
