On the subject of trolls, I treat them like a game of Lemmings... they come in one at a time and have no idea what's waiting for them when every single member of the community has the ability to flag them as a rule breaker, and every single member of the community has the right to vote on it but they are not told who they are voting about, only the offending comment + the rule it has allegedly broken.

Having trolls log in and be informed that they have been turned into Arnold Judas Rimmer and are now stuck like that is funny! It probably doesn't mean anything to the american audience because Rimmer was a highly annoying (but still oddly loved) character on a British Sitcom called Red Dwarf. He is a hologram, made up entirely of light and still manages to irritate everyone, oh and he's dead. Brilliant.

Couple that with the gigantic scrolling banner "Noob Mocker Device", and you got plenty of lulz from the trolls. But then the site I'm building is primarily a comedy house, not a "serious" work place fully of stuffy suited business types and long haired hippy programmers who put way too much personal emphasis and character basis on being an awesome wizard or a goblin or whatever, I can afford to have a more relaxed attitude.

Oh and btw when I fell out with John from TPUC over shall we say, religious grounds; He want's to turn off the internet, I had a whole bunch of TPUC monkeys doing their best to troll the hell out of ahoynoob, and the defences worked fine (once I'd finished them).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
