Somehow the user who goes by "War" got ahold of the spam button and marked 384 legitimate comments as spam.

All those comments are back and visible again.

But user War is nuked, hopefully never to return.

Darryl in Phoenix is also nuked.

The forum will be much better off without them.

I have to admit I didn't mind Darryl, but War aka Realtors are Liars etc was single handedly destroying your forums.

Without realizing it, he was the reason I took a break from this site. I guess there is an ignore button, but I have yet to use that.

Most people don't use the ignore link.

I'm not sure why, but I suppose it might be because they want to see whatever the obnoxious user might be saying about them personally.

The Ignore feature works pretty well.

I've ignored so many people now, I don't see any posts anymore. :)

You should axe Dan8267, the closet right-winger, as well. That is, unless you find posting pictures of a statue with a big penis and saying it's him, and telling other people that they have a small penis, to be clever. Personally, I got over that kind of "humor" when I was about 5 years old.

Why would you think these banned posters are females? The hostility level and obsessively juvenile rants clearly scream male.

Now, don't get mad. You guys also have a lot of interesting posts.

I go on forums that are all women, and they wouldn't allow any negativity for a split second...or even good natured snarky ribbing, which I frankly find boring but whatev.

The use of profanity is entirely acceptable and provides emphasis when needed. Anyway he wasn't calling anyone a cunt, he was just proposing the possibility that the offender might have been one.

One of the best things about patrick.net is that people can express themselves without limits and without worrying that they might be violating some silly childish naughty language filter.

I have never seen anything more hostile or hateful in my life than a series of posts on a particular feminist website coming from a woman. Anyway when it comes to trolls, no one should ever discriminate or make assumptions.

I've only ignored about 3 people. Two of them outright trolls, and Iwog. Iwog is actually a good poster, but I think with me personally he tends to turn into a troll. I do enjoy reading his post with other members who quote him, so I can actually see the discourse.

I think that's true. Women usually interact differently, and it's more about being helpful to each other, while men are more focused on making their point and defending it. It's not PC to say that, but I think it is true.

Profanity doesn't bother me since there probably are not any children on this forum. Go ahead and swear. But that would probably be another typical male/female difference on forums. Most women just don't swear as much.

That's really interesting. So what you get are the comments of his that have been filtered by someone. If they quoted his comment, they found it interesting enough to quote, so that's a filter for quality in a way.

You didn't seem to mind my gigantic penis last night. By the way, have you restocked on anal lube?

Also, spamming the same message over and over again on a thread, isn't going to stop me from deleting it. What kind of loser actually saves and reposts his message 20 times over a two week period? Perhaps you should have gotten over that when you were 5 years-old.

P.S. That statue really was of me.

It's something I've been doing on the 2-3 forums I visit. If someone just becomes too abrasive, and every exchange is more akin trolling instead of discourse, I ignore them. However because other people can quote their post (which I can see), I usually (let's say 95% of the time) only get the real discussion type post from that poster.

For instance I had ignored SFace for a while because it was getting unhealthy with personal insults, etc, then I got to read some of his post with other posters where it wasn't getting personal, and I eventually unignored him based on those post.

What bothered me is that War put up a good post, with good points about why Real Estate prices would decline, then beat the comment thread to death with troll comments.

It started as a good discussion, then it degenerated, which was too bad.

Then I noticed the pattern of saying the same comments without any substance other than accusations, and demands for more information.

It was a blatant attempt to engage without substance.

So I personally look at this as a good thing, but it really is too bad.

Thanks for illustrating my point. I can't believe Patrick wouldn't allow you a higher word count. He's depriving the world of your fantastic penis jokes.

I don't know. What kind of loser would delete the same post 20 times while leaving up all the previous immature posts in the thread? Rather reminds me of the "no backs" taunt we used to use in 2nd grade. Grow up, dude.

Reminds me of the dude commenting (on the newspapers website) on an article linked on patnet a couple of months ago about a florida couple commencing having sex at the outdoor patio restaurant table, it went something like this: "If they had caused this [traumatic experience) in front of my kids while I was there with them, I would have beaten the bloody hell out of that guy" (not sure if he would have beaten up the chick as well). Right on! ;)

They did do us a favor, by not strangling you, or leaving you in the bathtub at age 2 with your 5 year old brother, while Mom went out with friends to get her groove on, or lucky she didn't leave you with ex-con boyfriend with anger management issues, or put the car in car in neutral a top an incline near the rock quarry...

A police man was standing on the corner when a 7 year old boy came whizzing by running at break neck speed screaming for his life. Behind him was a cane wielding man, hobbling and thrashing his cane about just inches from the boys head and backside.

The policeman grabed the cane and chided the old Man... "Woa, OH HEY! What are you doing. You can't run about swatting at small children with a stick. Give me one reason why I shouldn't haul you in for child endangerment?"

The Old man said...
"Well Sir, I was down there standing on the corner minding my own business, when this little snot nosed brat came up and asked me the time. I pulled out my time piece and told him it was a quarter to seven.
The little shit told me "Good at 7:00 go fuck your self!""

The Cop said "well what in the hell you running for, you still got 14 minutes?"
