In a way I'm very annoyed , because some lady started to take a piss at me at my very first serious thread.
Isn't that I can handle that but it has more or less changed the way I experience ATS.
Well the theory I have is outlandish so I posted it in Metaphysics... I thought that would give me some protection ... Well it didn't

Kinda wierd ATS is about outlandish conspiracy theories isn't ? I a way I wanted to fight back... But fighting back costs energy and is bad Karma. And then the post changed....

LearningCurve.

In a way I learned something. Kinda sad but A-holes always win.
Because if I will continue to post on a regular basis I will get insulted more often. And after that I will probably fight back. Insulting people that propagate theories I don't like. I'm a pagan so probably Christians will get a bad time

So I pull the plug before becoming an A-hole myself. Instead of it I'll just post the lesser stuff more MSM less controversial...

Or post what you like and ignore them. No reason to let them derail your train of thought.

Don't be disheartened. I didn't see your thread so can't comment on it specifically But:

Put your case forward and argue the point, not the person.

No matter the subject, no matter in how it's presented; there is a type of personality on ATS that views every post as somekind of competition event to discredit the OP by any means possible. Personal insults, lies, and using all 25 of the rules of disinformation, and eventually labeling the OP as a "people like you" and forcing you to live outside this cyber community. And when you finally discover that being a "people like you" offers you a freedom that the sheep can never experience. "Embrace the Suck"

The world will eat you alive with a passive attitude that is easily overpowered by your emotions.

All kinds of trolls exist in the world.

You are the person granting them power. They have successfully manipulated your emotions, if you get angry, they smile.


Ignore them, or engage them, but don't take it personal.

Don't seek to make everyone happy, or you will be spread thin by those hunting for it.
-especially on the net.

If they are whining about ats stuff, they are probably trying to keep ats informative and structured, so it doesn't turn into farcebook.

You are the only one you need to be happy with.

Oh please, you really are a fragile little flower, aren't you?
I get # for my outlandish thoughts as well. And that's what makes ATS such a wonderful place to me.
When two always agree one of them is not necessary.

Biting obscure sarcasm is the most effective way to deal with a troll. They are usually to lazy to look up the obscure references and move along looking for less sophisticated prey. When they resort to insults and name calling....consider it a victory because those type of responses show they are out classed on so many levels. Most of the time they are to stupid to realize what just happened so move along and ignore them. They aren't worth your time.

Of course they will continue with the adolescent namecalling and insults but rest assured you are the victor.

Ah I see you point... So you think it's ok to insult people if you disagree ? Is that why you came to the metaphysic forum ... to have some fun. to show off your wikicutepaste abilities to trash people. To feel good , to be admired to get stars and flags by following the general opinion ?

beh... you really you need more decorum...

Or he could make a thread complaining about the troll and lure them out so we can all point and laugh.

OP - you don't need any lessons from us

Awww, snowflake, diddums, not rantsville again.



I took a lot of red pills


Mate you sure did, and your very first "serious"thread was pish, plain and simple. I'd suggest a spoonful of concrete or do I have to use the P word again.

Kind Regards

No problem, any time you are feeling insecure, or unsure of yourself in this big scary world, send me a pm, I will come protect you

The best is to let them write up a five page response, then respond with a
. This angers the trolls

I have no clue what you're talking about. Didn't "wikicutepaste" anything.
You were the one who started it, with the stupid "lady" three times in a row.
May I suggest you drop your sexist attitude, then I can talk to you as if you were an adult, little whiny man.
