not worth your precious time? I've seen alot of this attitude from older members who feel like ATS should be exclusive to them and other 'older'
Where I agree in part that trolls are annoying, you shouldn't shut out a person completely. Maybe they were nervous and typed before they completely
thought out what they wanted to say. Maybe emotions got in the way, etc. Since you would choose to ignore that person, maybe you would miss out on the
thread of a lifetime, who knows? . Odds are you wouldn't, but just saying.
Like I say, too much damn negativity and grandiose mentalities on ATS. Oh well.
This means you are assuming that anyone who chooses to use an ignore feature will not use it reasonably.
Some people only mean to cause flack and should be ignored. How can you be so sure that and why would you even care if it was overused? That's
jumping the gun and lady in waiting is right... it's an option. i have no idea why anyone would speak out about an option they don't have to use.
What it is appears to translate to is "awww, but if we allow an ignore option, it won't be so easy to stir our silly little pots"
Surely that isn't you... So what drives you to speak out against it.
I mean try to look at it logically and try to see what it says about management of this place. It doesn't matter though, because whether this board
has honest members who don't try to start charades or not, the site will get hits... and someone is obviously having a lot of fun with this trolling.
I also imagine that many of them are quite drunk and the obnoxiousness of contrived threads and posts makes me feel very discouraged when i think
about mankind as a whole. What this is, is a true color being exposed about an inner part of people and the color is truly disgusting. In real life
people are much more able to look at someone who is being ridiculous and walk away, knowing their face and name unless it was by a complete stranger
they never have to see again. this is some disgusting twisted view of the inner workings of many human minds that I'd rather ignore and not be
reminded of how many people in the world are really that lame. I go into a thread that might of interest and someone has come in and started a bunch
of contrived nonsense and i can turn around and leave... yes, that's true.... BUT HOW LAME CAN PEOPLE BE?
I lead a boring yet crazy life. I probably have a lot weird things to say, but for the love of GOD! I am not sitting here trying to think of a way to
aggravate people on the internet. It makes me sad actually. This is why life is so difficult.... because people who are not labeled as such should be
regarded as mentally retarded and they are not and we have to live with these people in society and they get to hide behind a computer screen and
annoy others to get a cheap, pathetic thrill off of seeing how many people can be riled by a certain subject that they don't even believe in or have
any true story to add to it. It's so pathetic. There is no hope for us as a species I swear. Right as we speak, there is someone sitting behind their
computer screen on a peaceful Sunday evening rubbing their twisted hands together saying "watch this....hehehehe" to one of their stupid friends and
then when someone bites the bait thinking they may actually be speaking from a place of truth they are probably rejoicing in their pathetic little
jollies thinking "hahaha.... this person bought that and is arguing with me"
I have a better idea. let's just start shooting full of # people. We don't need them. They do nothing productive but contribute to the booze
industry. I just want to SHAKE them. Shake them HARD! I just want to look at them and say "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH YOUR POOR BRAIN CELLS. WHY ARE YOU
SO PATHETIC. BE SOMEBODY. BE ABOUT SOMETHING. STOP TRYING TO SOT PEOPLE ON THE #ING INTERNET YOU PATHETIC LOSER WASTE OF OXYGEN LIFE YOU. THIS IS NOT
HOW LIFE IS LIVED. THIS IS NOT HOW GOALS ARE ACHIEVED. THIS IS NOT HOW THINGS ARE ACCOMPLISHED FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WHY IS YOU BRAIN SO DEFECTIVE WHAT
THE HELL ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH YOUR SORRY FAKE STUPID PRETENSIOUS CRAPPY SENSE OF HUMOR SELF... there is no hope, there is no hope... where do they
come from, why are they here with us in this world. What the hell went wrong with these people?
Sorry, got a little carried away there but it really gripes my ass.
Like "LET'S WASTE PEOPLES TIME... THIS IS WHAT WE CALL FUN... IF WE HAD REAL TOYS AND NOT JUST INTERNETZ WE COULD REALLY MAKE STUPID # HAPPEN.
How does anyone get to be such a #ing loser that internet trolling because entertainment? HOW?
WHAT IF THAT PATHETICNESS IS CYBER-CONTAGIOUS?
Really? REALLY? Do we have to CONSTANTLY be reminded how big of a loser some of us are? It's frightening!
We should making large cans of something to spray on these people until the turn over on their backs and start twitching and management is
apparently.... "learn to love, learn to love, give others a chance" NO.
STOP FEEDING THEM! Let their miserable easily amused asses crawl off and die!
It is the humane thing to do for such a hopeless life. What kind of heartless humanity have we become where we don't teach better and allow
this pitiful mode of functioning to exist? They are clearly suffering in the head and we condone it.
