Thanks for the perfect example.

I only posted what I did because some people were wanting opinions from outsiders (my word) as to why they didn't post in the lounge.

Edit: Why change your post to take the "troll" part of it out?
Thanks for trying.

I've just never been a fan of the outside the music area community here. Not saying I dislike anyone here, I just don't like the "I should be able to say or do what I want" attitude that many of the posters seem to have.

no offence, but this is a very odd statement from someone who has never posted in the Lounge/ Piano Bar /Pol Forum.
Where did you 'meet' these trolls and alias' ? I hope they werent in the music section -- that would be uncool.

So perhaps you'd engage in the forums if those people weren't around?

I might. What mainly keeps this TTD member out of the forums is lack of time. But I peeked in the forums earlier and lpfreak there is right. Should a few spoil it for the rest? Without limitations on attacks, that will inevitably happen, they will reign whilst squashing the crap out of people who dare take them on. Some will stay and fight but I know that I've walked away from forums because it gets so tiring dealing with the Jared Loughner's of the world. I HATE limitations on speech but speech can be used hatefully and viciously and some of those assfaces won't stop; they're sick, they need help and they'll drive people away. I don't love moderation but mayhaps it's a necessary evil that's not really necessarily an evil. Punish the assfaces if they can't play nice. Plain and simple. Do you want more good people in the forums? The only way to make that happen is pay them or get rid of the sad pieces of crap who ruin it for the rest.

no offense but you don't have to post to know they exist; all you need to do is go in (the forums) and read . . . plus the problem has been mentioned by others.

That's the Political forum's mission statement.

no no no.. there are professional seasoned alias' in the Where We Go To Play section (they are kind souls having fun)..
you could not simply show up at this site and start making those claims - you'd have to be in a forum for quite some time to figure out who is or isnt whom.

trolls are easy to spot agreed

Wolf is an alias of mine and I am an alias of his.

both are figments of bluzman's imagination.

nothing is real..everything is permitted

None taken, and looking back on what I posted, I probably could have worded that part better. I have to admit I have taken a look in the lounge from time to time, and it just seems to me that is the prevailing type of posts there (not saying everyone is like/posts like that, of course). I have seen some of the trolling/fighting spill over into the torrent threads on occasion (seems to get squashed pretty quickly, though).

Anyway, I now have to go to work. Just wanted to comment on why I don't post in the lounge. Now to probably not post again for a year or two.

not to badger you, but how much control and what specific things do you think people should be prohibited from posting?

There are a few things for which we have no tolerance:
- trolling family members (who don't post here and have nothing to do with TTD) of users
- posting users' personal info (full names, phone numbers, addresses, etc)

there are some others... we generally keep hands off, but when one of these things comes up, the smackdown is swift - though we don't leave much trace of it for anyone to see.

Based on your feedback, what other things would you like to see prohibited?

again, not trying to badger, just interested in your line of thought.
