I can't be bothered to though.
Somebody has issues though, big horrible and severe issues.
Did someone say that in another thread about it earlier today or something? Not that I'm meaning to belittle you, but... I can't think of a polite way to end this sentence.
I'm don't know. Also, you're such a bitch.
It's cos you don't strike me as a computer geek. YES!
I work in the telecoms department of a computer software company so I know about dynamic and static IP addresses n shit. So they can't ban him if his IP address keeps changing, right?
who would bother to sit down and do one of the most boring things imaginable for 40 minutes? S'not like anyone's really that bothered either.
fishplums messaged me on Wednesday before any of this happened asking me if I fancied getting my mod status reinstated. If he'd got back to me instead of presumably going out and being a normal person maybe none of this would have happened.
All of 30 people on here on a Friday night, SLIGHTLY PUT OUT AND FORCED TO GO WASTE THEIR TIME SOMEWHERE ELSE ON THE INTERNET. He's like Heath Ledger in that film
A Knights Tale?
i am so proud of myself. i just love my new castle. it is so impressive. this moat is connected to the ratboy canal. when the canal is finished, it will connect to all the places in my kingdom and will be five miles long.
If I had the means I would probably whoop dat ass and slice his thumbs... but TRUST ME, I'm seriously NOT bothered in the least.
He's making a right mess of your 90's hip-hop thread :(((
All his posts will get deleted anyway.
but now I can't find it, so maybe I don't. Hmm. It's been useful anyway, means I've actually done something with my Friday night.
was my sign off to him.
just not as long and not as many bumps. And he referred to me as theShitment in a post a couple days back, which he liked to do back when he was around. And he was known for writing 3,000 word posts on a regular basis so time is obviously not an issue to him. And he was a prick so this fits his M.O.
this guy's DiS frame of reference seems to go back years though.
It was only recently he flipped and went mental.
Oh well. People lurk for years without joining. And I disagree that anything this particular troll's doing necessitates having found DiS any more recently than about a week ago, so long as he's got a search engine.
I seem to have missed this.
The troll went triple-z though.
didn't even notice it.
Thought it was a bit weird when you were responding to spiritofjizz(z) as though it weren't your account.
note the number of zs
note to self: refresh page first.
and run with it.
Just ignore him. I know this is hard, because every media form ever has shown that if all you need is a whithering put down, and you win over the asshole.
This is not true on the internet. This is someone with no life at all, and no redeemable benefits. Trolling like this is what you do when you have no other way of getting attention. That is what this is about. Attention.
The solution? Denying him the one thing he wants. This will hurt him more than anything else we can do. This will lead to him getting frustrated and going through a more intense bit of trolling but after which he will quit in a huff, or leaving straight off.
This is worth baring in mind for every future instance of trolling, too.
Or are they? I dunno. I suppose I just did, actually. But mostly I doubt anyone's clicking into many threads with his name next to it.
OR IT COULD BE A HER. Sexist.
We are being better than the majority of other boards, but lets kick it up to /tg/ level anti trolling measures.
and then you invaded it and then sean shouted at us? That was great.
I genuinely cannot recall their name.
they still going?
what about some kind of noise forum. then people will get really upset when y'all are like 'ah tapes, fucking hipster shit, arrrgh'.
How am I gonna look at breasts on the internet now?
for attempted harm to a commercial web site. He appears to have gone.
I'm awaiting his reply
Um, this is a bit out of the blue
Let me think... erm... yeah, I signed up to DrownedInSound because things were a little quiet here, and made an introductory post about
Love Kraft, but when I started talking about other bands I found myself in this... wickedly hostile environment, I thought. Maybe it's because
I don't "get" the general DiS sense of humour or maybe it's because it's a difficult place to get intigrated into (lots of in-jokes, etc.) but
I remember starting to get really annoyed when somebody (I don't know who) signed up with a nickname virtually impersonating me or
trying to wind me up, which they succeeded in doing might I add, and it just ended up spoiling the whole thing for me. This frustration
ended up bleeding into several posts, but it just got to the point where I actually regretted signing up to the site to begin with.
I know you can't just cancel accounts on that forum, I tried to find a way, so I looked for the easiest way to kill my account, which was
to have my account cancelled for me without being too much of an irritant (i.e. bumping up loads of old threads). I haven't posted or
really looked at the site since. In fact, I didn't really look at the site that much beforehand to tell you the truth, except to get reviews on
SFA projects or side-projects etc. Having a look there, it seems that someone is holding a grudge, but I'd rather not be dragged into
it to be honest. I've got enough on my plate with work and family (I've actually just come OFF work, where I have no net access) - so yeah,
if you could pass back the message that it has absolutely nothing to do with me, I'd be very grateful. Where do these people find the time?
The thing is, I used to run the predecessor of this messageboard, so I completely understand the frustration of trying to keep up with
trolls etc. Therefore, it's not really the kind of thing I'd subject to another messageboard in all honesty. It's just people trying to sour
other peoples enjoyment - which is why I chose to leave DiS to begin with.
(side note to Guac - can this be moved into the 'regular gen discussion' forum? thanks!)
He did post some good stuff (or, at least, coherent and sometimes-interesting stuff), but he started losing it before Chubracabras came along iirc.
Incidentally, my name was Chupacabras on a forum once. I wonder if I should check it to see if I've been PM'd about whether I'm trolling DiS.
Your secret is safe with me
this was the guy who couned the "^ cunt ^" thing, right?
amazing how many people think that was actually him. poor guy
and then he started on everybody else.
why didn't he just asked to get his account barred?
...but also hate the thought that this thread gives him/her enjoyment...
Wrong time to join!
ever-more allegedly 'obscure' bands that they'd self-evidently made up and describe everyone else's recommendations as too commercial unless it was some kind of slightly more subtle (and admittedly, for about 5 minutes) funnier troll effort poking fun at the indieness of DiS (which is another side of the whole Oasis coin)
and then in another thread, be defended by spiritofjizzz who was definitely a troll, and i'm pretty sure as GylesBannedeth or whatever bump a whole load of old threads.
for the lolz. some of them did different stuff, and changed trolling tactics when they got bored. for example Drownedinsoundisshit thising everything in a thread...doing 'out-of-character' stuff keeps it interesting, i guess.
i'd say this post was pretty conclusive:
http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4276352#r5815189 if we agree that spiritofjizzz was a troll, which is pretty likely given he definitely did the old thread bump thing.
+he said he was 28 so now way could be listening to the made-up records that apparently sold out after being pressed in 1993...)
(DISCLAIMER: don't really care; just trying to put off work/always fun pretending to be Columbo...)
but i'm right, right? that's the important thing in all this...
safety wink (but not really)
I'm gonna say it's useded. Has anyone ever actually seen him in the same room as Adrian Veidt? And he started this thread for his own amusement. Blates a troll.
simple really, forget this bumping current thread rubbish
