what you have described is one way for a member to be banned, or at lest ignored by the how should I say this, the more illuminated members of ATS

This condescending approach you have decided to take on the topic is in no way contributing to ATS. Points mean nothing after you have "bought" everything you like at the ATS store Some members have post counts above 4000 with only 20k or so points, but read some of their posts, brilliant to say the least you think they care about points? Fact is do some research, author an original thread or a good follow up with plenty of material and you'll see the points, as well as garner some respect for yourself.

I didn' think I would ever see a "How To Thread" for trolling. How wonderful that you would instigate more instances of ignorance and petty conversation on this already somewhat hard to manage website.
And really if you want points on ATS there is another easier way to do this.
Create intelligently written, fact laden threads that will ENTICE people to have meaningfull long dicussions.
That would be the preffered way to gain points, and anything else seems a little trivial.

Ok while most people 'got it' it's clear not everyone shares my sense of humour, which is fair enough
I've asked Sauron to add the word 'Satire' to the thread title and he's suggested it be moved to the BTS Jokes forum as well which seems more appropriate (I didn't know this existed as I don't use BTS).
I also asked for the points the thread has generated me to be taken back just to make it clear that this wasn't what the thread was about but was told this wasn't possible
Thanks to everyone who enjoyed the thread and my apologies to those who didn't.
