    You rage = you feed the trolls. Ignore them, and they will die from hunger.

    Oh snap, i think I get trolled ;_;

    Trolls on forums, idiots in real life, both evoke the same reaction, it's just easier to lash out at trolls on forums, you have anonymity, and the worst they can do is reply and irritate you more.
    Now the real question is, why is this in the general software area?

    general nonsense is gone from TPU, and turned into its own forum that danish linked above.

    we're trying to get more people to sign up over there, so please do so.

    (yes, i too think its annoying to sign up twice)

    Yep, I still see general nonsense on this forums tag.

    But yeah, dont feed trolls, it's what they live forum, some people like attention, even if it's negative, it just makes them feel good.

    the uk that's all you need to know ;)
    we should all get a petition going to get rid of them ;)
    especially the abusive ones i really can't stand abusive people full stop
    there's no need for it
    the cat father says if he purchases any websites with trolls residing on them
    he'll devour them and ban them from everywhere he can
    but hey that's him for ya:cool:
