Troll problems

Would the moderators mind checking the user Ninjoo http://forums.utopiatemple.com/member.php?u=151175

I thought that he was just another kid but he is starting to look more and more like a troll to me.

I don't think he's a troll, I just think he's just a new member who is used to sites where people aren't really expected to use their heads as much, nor type sentences in proper English. But yeah, I agree that it is getting annoying seeing a new random topic about pointless crap coming up every six hours.

If all else fails, call someone a troll.
that can be fixed... / Ć

I agree... the posts are pretty annoying. I've honestly not really read any of Ninjoo's posts, so I won't get into if it's trolling or not, but I have seen comments such as "Why did you bother posting this? There's no point." etc. and it really is just a matter of, well... useless clutter

Ninjoo: Nobody has a problem with you posting, and making threads. Hell, that's why we're here. But, you need to moderate yourself and have a purpose of posting.

Try something like this:
1. Make a new thread once a week
2. Before you make a thread, ask yourself these questions:
a). What is this thread about?
b). What am I argueing/discussing
c). Is it relevent
3. When making a post, obviously be on topic, and try to make a point (I always try to bring up something new, or add a new spin to something, to try to stir up conversation)

Nobody wants to see you go. Your a (very) active user and that's exactly what we want! But, to much of anything (even if it's good) can be a bad thing. Just moderate yourself, don't be impulsive, and think about what your doing and saying.

I just checked on some of his posts and he's nothing close to a troll. At least no where near what I've seen on other boards.

Advocatus-
There are no rules regarding how often a new user may make posts, nor are there guidelines to follow for new threads. While I would agree that lots of them don't belong in RGD really, they're still just as worthy as a lot of other junk posted. Learning to post a few links or things like that to what he's talking about would be good to learn, but you're sounding kind of stifling. Let the man be. Your useless clutter is his content that he wants to talk about. You don't want to, you're free to click away.

There are two important rules for sucess in life.
1. Never tell anyone everything you know.

An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, with the intention of baiting other users into an emotional response.

Sasi you of all people shouldn't know where the ignore list is. I do not ignore people I add them that is right all mafia people are on my buddy list...

Advice to new people: Read this and this it will help you better understand this forum and its rules. Have fun, be active, keep posting and eventually people will accept you for who you are as long as you do not insult them...

haha, I read the atheist vs godthingy thread or whatever it was about and it actually make me laugh. I dont think it was his intention to provoke you guys. Call him an ignorant fool who doesn't have his (or any) facts straight, but in my opinion he tried to have some 'respectable' discussion, he just hasn't found the 'quote' button...

pity, to late to edit, sorry for the spamming...

After some more reading I have to change my earlier opinion and conclude that he is either really stupid or really provocative...

This thread has more than used its life expectancy. Time to take it out back before it become a bitching and putting a user down thread instead of a constructive criticism thread.
