[Response To Some Unwarranted Trolling] Posbang Thread

Submitted by jsquigg on August 9th, 2014 at 5:22 PM

Hopefully the poster below gets nuked.

MOD NOTE - Original title was "The Jabrill Peppers DID NOT Tear His ACL Posbang Thread", a response to a very poorly timed and executed troll which, joke or not, did not go over well. Thread title changed to eliminate all confusion. - LSA

Lesson to all, don't create a false bullshit thread, it gives people a heart attack and a sad panda face, cut it the fuck out with trying to be funny.

 

ESPECIALLY 3 FUCKING WEEKS BEFORE THE SEASON STARTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did you guys hear Jabrill tore his ACL?  why was I the only one who went streaking through the diag in protest of the season?

why don't we use streaking as a form of protest more often?

why do we even have clothes?

should we be mad at eve for making us wear clothes just because she was hungry?

what is the meaning of life?

what were we talking about?

why do people in EL need so many fire extinguishers?

Whether it was a joke or not, it wasn't at all funny and it seemed clear to me that it was meant to troll / be inflammatory towards the board. As you know, I try to do a decent job of not letting such people exist for any longer than they absolutely must. Indeed, this user is in Bolivia and blocked until the last bowl game, at which time the case could be brought to appeal. I understand our MGoAppellate Court doesn't meet all that often, and when they do, it is at a Tiki bar and they usually don't discuss work.

Do you mods have a way of trying to keep trolls like him out by checking IP addresses of new accounts?  Sure would be nice to keep bad blood out once kicked out, but probably much easier said than done.  In this situation with "flwolverine", though, it kind of surprised me to see someone with 3+ years suddenly ignite and flame out.  I had taken a quick glance at his account history while that thread was still up and saw nothing recent that indicated "troll".

flwolverine isn't the problem, in any case. He's a normal poster that made a thread dumb enough that LSA made it so he can't make threads for a while. The real problem trolls are either the concern trolls that manage to hang on for years or the guys who just make new accounts when they're banned for the 4340380th time.
