In the history of the internet

can anyone think of a single troll who went away when they were ignored, rather than doubled or tripled their efforts when ignored?

  • I have NEVER seen a troll leave because they were ignored and I used to be a paying member of Fark.

  • I've never seen a troll completely ignored, honestly. It makes sense that they would escalate, I mean, isn't that the point for them?

  • Nope. They usually post a 'why are all of you bitches so bitchy' questions, respond a few times with name calling and then hair flip and close their account, only to create two more (one purely to provide points to the other to attain anon answering abilities) profiles to use for trolling.

    I've seen it happen in groups here, and outside CM. In one situation, somewhere I was an admin that I know for a fact, every active member had someone on ignore except those of us who weren't allowed to. He responded by trying to spam create new accts to talk to himself.

    I'm not one to judge people for what they do in their own bedroom, but he was WAY too enthusiastic about sharing furridom whether people wanted to hear it or not. He gave the new accts animal names *sigh*

  • I've only seen trolls go away when they've been exposed & poofed.

  • I can not say that I have paid attention enough to the trends of trolls.
    I hang my head at my ignorance and beg forgiveness.
