Quote:9. Don't troll and don't be a dick. View this thread to understand what we consider trolling so that you don't get banned.

Quote:10. Player-Hater Troll
Even though he only has a couple of dozen posts to his name--most of them lame, noob comments and questions--Player-Hater Troll still sees fit to zero in on the most senior, respected members of the forum, and abruptly call them out on their "phoniness" or "stupidity." To make matters worse, he himself has demonstrated zero knowledge of game, women, or even life.



11. Junk-Thread Starter Troll / Played-Out Thread Troll (Subtle Troll)
Repeatedly starts new threads--invariably of the lowest order--about well-worn and obnoxious, or simply irrelevant and so-the-fuck-what, topics. The forum's two (very) effective search functions are meaningless to this guy, because the urgency of assuring us, for the 2,000th time, that money or looks trump game simply renders them irrelevant. This is a difficult troll to smoke out, since he often cloaks himself behind the plausible excuse of being a newb--and because just starting a thread on an old, or simply uninteresting, topic doesn't necessarily rise to the level of trolling. But, some combination of: poor grammar, a strain of game-denial, a ridiculously low post-count, or excessively personal revelations without a request for advice (especially when no one knows or cares about them yet), is often a tell-tale symptom.

Those aren't your posts.

RE: Proof that Ali Baba doesn't suck
I like Ali-B. He has a bunch of good info- time re-frame, confrontational confidence, etc etc. I don't doubt he has his meltdowns, but its fairly obvious when its good and bad (but humorously trolling) advice. Just let it go...

WIA- For most of men, our time being masters of our own fate, kings in our own castles is short. Even those of us in the game will eventually succumb to ease of servitude rather than deal with the malaise of solitude

That only had 110K+ views. Probably not good enough for soup. We need to keep digging to find something better.

I didn't realize my posts weren't helping soup.

Soup, tell me where you need help in game, style, travel, finance, and I'll try to tailor some posts to help you out. After all, this is what we're all here for. If there's any other members that aren't helping you in every single post, start a thread on them so they'll be aware.

RE: Proof that Ali Baba doesn't suck
Not sure if the thread is serious, but if you've got an issue with the Ali, there's always an ignore list. Starting a thread on this seems a bit much - could have just tossed it in with the thread about senior members trolling.

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe.
To be your own man is a hard business. If you try it, you'll be lonely often, and sometimes
frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." - Kipling

Besides of providing hours of entertainment at work, that thread introduced me to coconut water. That alone is worth it's weight in gold.

This is better.

Now I remember the good Ali-b and not just the trolling guy. Keep them coming.

Divorco started this thread but it is about Ali in DC. As a local guy I like to hear about an outsiders experience in my territory.

RE: Proof that Ali Baba doesn't suck
There's no doubt Ali likes a good troll, but I think it shouldn't be taken too seriously.

If you're used to an environment where guys banter all day long, then this stuff goes over your head.

Because when I was growing up as soon as I showed any offence or weakness to trolling, my friends would troll me ten times harder.

I don't think we need to resort to Jezebel style singling out on here on the forum.

If there's an issue, address man to man via pm or simply hit ignore.

RE: Proof that Ali Baba doesn't suck
Soup, if this isn't a hate thread then what exactly is it? You can't say it's not a hate thread and then just go off saying how he's a troll and adds no value to the forum.

I dig Ali's posts. While I don't always agree 100% with what he says all the time, he usually gives me a good laugh. I think that most cats that don't like him are mainly too sensitive. 90% of the time he's just fucking around (Or maybe not, but either way, learn to take some criticism).

I read that entire thread the other day, and all I recall Ali writing about was getting robbed in broad daylight, banging semipros, and drinking coconut water. It seemed like elmech and later fisto were the ones banging normal girls.

But Ali does throw zingers into threads that tend to be pretty funny. IMO that's where his value lies.

Ali has been dropping lots of tension on posts lately. I hope it's not a troll thing.

Let's hi-light the best best of Alibaba here.

I remember having a good feeling about alibaba when I first got in to this forum. Now he's attacking a lot. Why?

You know, for a forum that professes masculinity as its pinnacle of what we all strive for, I can't help but wonder why quite a few members stir up unnecessary drama. I mean, I guess our estrogen has to come out somewhere I suppose.

I'm detuned here. I'm beta on the forum so I don't get banned.

Other members have asked for a anything goes shit talk lounge of sorts or subforum? Not that it's such a good idea but it may help younger dudes here grow some thicker skin.

The problem with an "anything goes" shit-talking subforum is that those type of subforums always get out of hand.

For example, there used to be an "Off-Topic: Bareknuckle Dicussion" subforum on Sherdog.com, but they eventually discontinued it because people where getting too riled up and bringing their "feuds" to the regular part of the forum.
