    Alright. I was trying very hard not to comment on this thread, but screw it.

    This entire thread is meant to bait and nothing more. If you can't see how much of a troll The Pirate is and how this thread is designed to bait and nothing more then you're freaking blind. the fact that he based it on staying ontopic when he himself is the king of taking things offtopic is hilarious. The one topic he could create where he knew damn well he could twist any reply to being offtopic. In his mind we're too stupid to see that though.

    Look at this little comment here where he tries sounding intelligent by quoting Plato:

    "As Plato said, wise men speak because they have something to say. Fools because they have to say something.:guru:"

    Pirate signed up on December 20th of last year and already has 700+ posts and it's only the 12th of April 2019. Sounds like a fool that has to say something, but that's just me.

    Most of his posts consists of talking down to others. Treating them as if they're beneath him and just frankly talking to most here as if they're complete freaking morons and he's a genius that all should listen to. He shows classic signs of a huge narcissist.

    He does in fact give out shady help to others. Especially in the area of custom builds of Windows. Tells people not to use the official Windows build by Microsoft and to also stay away form custom builds. Where he then points them to his own custom builds and automatically expects everyone to assume they're safe to use. Nobody here really knows who the Hell he is, but assumes it's safe since he appears to know what he's talking about and sounds smart. People shouldn't use custom builds of Windows PERIOD. If they're interested in that they should learn how to build one on their own. TAILORED TO WHAT THEY WANT IN IT NOT WHAT SOMEONE ELSE THINKS THEY NEED.

    From day one he tries to police damn near every thread he comments in. He signed up with the mindset he's already a mod/admin.

    Cares way too much about the emoticons even though he has mentioned they mean nothing to him, but dislike/disagree with anything he posts using the emoticon system and watch his attitude change very quickly. he thrives on the good ones, but don't you freaking dare click a bad one or he goes straight to "let me insult and make this person look stupid mode". By showing screenshots of it and calling them out in a very public way.

    It's very immature when people care soo much about a freaking image on a screen. Think about what that person's mental state must be when they get physically and emotionally affected by a freaking EMOTICON ON A FORUM.

    This thread was a huge troll setup and he even admits it when saying he isn't surprised by most of the responses and who responded because it's exactly what he wanted. Trying to make it appear as if there's a large batch of people out to get him when in reality he knows exactly who is pissed because he's trolling them and has been from day one. Just a coincidence that all of these people have called him out from day one, but he thinks you people are too stupid to see that.

    I could go on and on about this but I'm sick of typing right now. It should be obvious to anyone here what he's up to. Give him mod status and watch how fast it gets abused. Don't be shocked when other mods get blamed for something he did. Most people like him immediately screw with the forum as soon as they get the smallest amount of power.

    It's 2019 and pathetic people like this still exist ion the internet lmao. Well it's not really a shock they exist on the internet when they're soo scared of reality.

    What about adding this extra icon to the available ones?

    Everybody who gets 10 of them (or whatever number the admin arrives at) for a particular thread automatically is ejected from that thread?:dunno:

    There is no need for this. Mods have to decide what or who needs to get "banned" not the community. All of those assessments are subjective. This does not fit.


    Edit:
    I also do not kow why you need your ignore list on every post. Is it important that the one you ignore knows he gets ignored by a system for you because you can not handle it by yourself?

    @The Pirate

    Best thing would be if you stay from being offended by the members that you feel insult you and your thread.

    Remember:
    You asked ppl being honost in comments, and that´s what you get.

    Basically I agree with your very first post here - it´s indeed a pain when some people over and over ignore the very essense of a thread because they´re either bored or think "a little twist" could give them a few personally likes, start a fire etc.

    You have done well since you started here a few months ago. Helped a lot of people with technically issues and stuff in a friendly way - respect!

    Take care @Pirate :wink:

    Liberally apply the anti-troll lotion over your entire body (not in your eyes or mucus membranes) and see how fast those nasty trolls can disappear.

    Now, that's topical. :wink:

    8 Sure Signs You Are A Troll
    1. You post all the friggin’ time.
    Per the study: Trolls “tend to post more frequently than average users (prior to getting banned): on CNN, a typical [troll] makes 264 posts, but an average user makes only 22 posts.”

    Translation: Your keyboard runneth over. Please stop.

    2. But almost never on topic.
    “We find that the average text similarity of posts written by [trolls] is significantly lower than that of [nontrolls] … suggesting that [trolls] make less of an effort to integrate or stay on-topic.”

    Translation: Every discussion, no matter how innocuous, is an opportunity to launch into a paranoid rant about Obama, Bush, the 9/11 commission, the alleged moon landing, the Holocaust, Benghazi, the World Bank, the Bermuda Triangle, or the Infield Fly Rule.

    3. You get way more replies than average.
    Trolls “receive more replies than average users, suggesting that they might be successful in luring others into fruitless, time-consuming discussions.”

    Translation: You have no life.

    4. You’re quasi-literate.
    “We measure each post with respect to several readability tests, including the Automated Readability Index (ARI), which are designed to gauge how understandable a piece of text is. While posts written by [trolls] and [nontrolls] have similar word counts, those written by [trolls] have a higher ARI, and thus appear to be less readable than those written by [nontrolls].”

    Translation: Ewe dun no how too rat gud, dew ewe?

    5. You’re a [email protected]#&%!! potty mouth.
    “[Trolls] are less likely to use positive words … are also more likely to swear or use less tentative or conciliatory language.”

    Translation: You probably shouldn’t kiss your mama with that mouth … or anyone else.

    6. Your comments get worse over time.
    “Not only do [trolls] enter a community writing worse posts than [nontrolls], but the quality of their posts also worsens more over time.”

    Translation: You enter the discussion as an idiot; you leave it a drooling imbecile.

    7. And get deleted more often.
    “On average, the deletion rate of a [troll’s] posts tends to increase over their life in a community. In contrast, the deletion rate for [nontrolls] remains relatively constant. … Posts written later in a [troll’s] life are more likely to be deleted, regardless of whether they are actually worse.”

    Translation: We’re all effin’ tired of your BS.

    8. But at least you’re consistent.
    “We can predict with over 80% [confidence] whether a user will be subsequently banned. In fact, we only need to observe 5 to 10 user’s posts before a classifier is able to make a reliable prediction. Further, crossdomain classification performance remains high, suggesting that the features indicative of antisocial behavior that we discover are not community-specific.”

    Translation: If you’re a jackass here, you’re probably a jackass everywhere, and more likely to be banned. But not to worry: We’re sure you’ll find another virtual bridge to lurk under.

    I can think of several people here who satisfy most if not all of these conditions. Including the one I'm replying too...

    See, that's your problem @EddieXx...it isn't your place to "chime" in on my direct response to the pirate. It wasn't asked for or even needed.
    This is how "wars" get started. You post your thoughts and judgments on what I said that wasn't directed to you and now we have a mess beginning. I know your a fanboy of the pirate, thats kool, but you are now way off topic by you speaking of what you think you know about me and I suggest you refrain from doing so. I would love to address your silly accusations, but perhaps you should PM me and I will certainly address your concerns.

    Nothing stupid about it at all if you know how trolls work. I used to moderate forums back in the day and he's a classic troll. Using his "help" around here to try and stay on the good side of mods/admins so the obvious trolling and constant attacks just get ignored. Or keep the attack just on the verge of rule breaking, but not quite there.

    He's clearly trying to annoy the ones who hate him and thinking this will result in some bans being handed out. He even mentioned that very thing. This whole thread is bait and people are falling for it. Go through all his replies after his OP and you can see him actually admitting to the point of the thread. He does that all the time. Whether he realizes he does that, I don't know.

    At least explain your stance on why you think it was stupid or else it just looks like you think what I posted is stupid just for the fact you like The Pirate. You come off as a fanboy like that.

    I explain things in detail and obviously not the only one who sees what he's trying to do here since others mentioned these very things here before I even posted about them. Pay attention and you might have actually noticed that.

    Don't forget they'll refer to everyone else they disagree with as a troll themselves. In almost every single post they make.

    They also go out of their way to continue attacking members on other sections of the forums where they think rules don't apply. Like a profile page that may have a message section.

    No need to regroup for you. I get it...you don't like my response. Yet, you did ask for it and I was respectful in relaying it to you.
    I didn't call you names and such. And I don't care if your russian or not. I won't be baited into your lil' war.I stand by exactly everything I stated and just like I told @EddieXx...this is not the place to argue, especially with all the insulting things you have stated above.

    So, I have reported your last statement because of your insults and disrespect. I now refrain from any further statements here so as to adhere
    to the rules.

    Have a nice day.

    I tend to believe in the facts I see before a complex/twisted/conspiracy plot backed with nothing and decorated with insults.
    Call me unimaginative if you want...

    On another state of affairs...
    For some reason I liked your post before reading it...
    Good one both lol
    I'm more original than any of you: for me it's the thread OPener. Hell yeah, I'm the man... :disco:

    So start a topic on it. What are you doing in this thread besides being unfriendly? It is a rethoric question. No need to answer.
