Absolutely. But as non-mods the best we can do is not discuss with and validate them in all their threads, like Z is doing in this case.

I support free speech, so I am against banning trolls. The more successful ones stay around for a while but get bored eventually and leave. Besides, I wouldn't want Winston to ban him anyway. He's free entertainment. I mean, seriously, when was the last time some troll here claimed to be making an absurd amount of money from a website and claiming to be one of TPTB? Cornfed said it best - his purpose in life is to be laughed at. Don't ban him and we can fulfill that purpose.

He is sometimes annoying but sadly he is right about a lot of the things he says.

Paloaltoguy mentioned on Rooshv forum. Apparently they know him too.

Now it's become a forum where you come on and oh here is another BS thread by Paloaltoguy where he posts dozens of pictures of random women and claims they are his women. Can't you see this guy is a troll Winston? And easily the biggest troll on this forum.

If you ban him he will probably make another account but if he keeps getting recognized and banned he will give up and go to another site to troll.

I mean there was a poll to ban Cornfed and Paloaltoguy is easily worse.


Just go to the expat forum and put him on Ignore for good measure. Vote with your feet.


where is the expat forum. am i being allowed there? i am landing in bangkok in early november and going to the pi afterwards. so i am officially on my way :)

So you will be spending at least one night in Bangkok, Billy?

Lol, of course, as Friedrich Nietzsche said: the powerful natures dominate, it is a necessity, they need not lift one finger. Even if, during their lifetime, they bury themselves in a garden house!

I am not so keen on Bangkok. Somekind of too overhelming now though maybe I will change my mind.

Attention:

I've been receiving complaints about PaloAltoGuy again, who is now back as "BlackKnight" in case you all didn't know. The complaints say that he is trolling again and insulting others in every post and offering nothing of value again. Is that true? I don't follow his posts so I don't know. However, some of you say he's entertaining as well.

So what do you all think? Should PAG/BlackKnight be banned? Should we do a poll on this? Even if we ran a poll, he would probably create a ton of fake accounts to vote in his favor. lol

Ok let me set up a poll anyway and see what the results will be.

I have changed my mind, let him stay. Clearly there are times he's trolling, in fact more often then not, but often the definition of "trolling" seems to be: "daring to disagree with general consensus in any given community".

No, that would just be silly. Let's just wait and see who end up having happier lives, those who are enlightened enough for the Red Pill or those who naively follow the Blue Pill. I think too much red pill bullshit will result in you ending up like the "I'll never love again" thread, which seems rather miserable to me. But what do I know, I'm just a silly brainwashed feminist shill. :lol:

Seriously though, lets not go too far off-topic here: I changed my mind about BlackKnight\PAG. That's all.

Yeah, ignorance is bliss and all that...

Anyway, I've changed my mind about Paggy as well. Sometimes you just need to flush a turd. I'm not opposed to trolls necessarily, but I think they should at least be entertaining. Paggy's shtick got old a long time ago. If he wanted to really discuss anything without feigning discussion in order to hurl insults and braggadocio, it would be fine...but all he does nowadays is insult and brag. And even when he feigns discussion he's just copy-and-pasting from Wikipedia or stealing photos from somewhere. He's even copying-and-pasting his prior posts because he's so empty-headed. I'm in support of free speech - all should be free to express opinions. Insults and bragging are not opinions. Also, a website is property and that means it's really Winston's decision. He's technically under no obligation to keep trolls around, and technically under no obligation to keep anyone around. It would be the equivalent of kicking someone out of your house. It's your property, so you can choose who gets to be there. Furthermore, it's pretty clear by now that he has been doing nothing but trying to derail he forum and prevent activity on here. Methinks it's time to flush this turd.
