Being well liked is not a factor at all. Many "well liked" members are no longer a part of the community because they violated T&C to an extent that
If a troll or insulting poster attacks you, simply use the "alert" feature and allow staff to handle it.
Ok, I wasn't quite sure how to put this into words earlier, but now I think I may have a way, let me know if this makes sense.
I believe some memebers on here use a form of trolling that is undetectable/immune to the T and C's . What I mean by that, is sometimes people try
to dispute what you say, even if they really can't dispute it. They have no facts, they just use opinion, so when you go back and say no, these are
facts, take a look, they continue to try to make your facts looks false, or stupid or whatever. So you get a bit angrier, and you say no, look, here
they are , I have these facts right here, I line them up, and shine a light on them, then I offer the troll/ valued member of ats a pair of glasses
and I say, see, look, i lined up the facts, i got a light shining on them, and you got your glasses on, then the person ( much to my frustration)
continues to pretend to have a leg to stand on, gets mildly insulting, and continues with their subtle rampage. And then ATS and the good Mods
decide to censor me, Like I have done something wrong, when I try to shake this troll off my back. I just wish more people on here wouldnt be
insulting and dismissive in such a passive aggressive way, if we are going to censor at all, maybe we should add to the censorship rules, like if
someone comes on a thread and disagrees, fine, let them disagree. but if they are being disagreeable for the sake of it, and continually posting and
being antagonisitc, censor that. I have never gone onto a thread and repeatedly harrassed someone just because I don't agree with their post. Even
if i think something is dumb, I keep it to myself. just disagree and move on. p.s.
