I understand but trolling is only a problem when people can't resist or control themselves from making a negative reply instead of just ignoring it. Some people don't want the thread to turn into a huge arguement, which is why trolling is so annoying. But it wouldn't be trolling if the people who hated the threadstarter would just stay out of the thread. It's only trolling when people start bashing the original poster. If no one replied except the people who thought it was funny then trolling wouldn't be an issue.

Take JawShattera's threads for example. He made a thread about how many timberwolves Chuck could KO. If he would have made that thread at Sherdog then he would have had thousands of replies of people telling him in different ways that he should go kill himself for making such a stupid thread. That in turn, keeps it on the front page so even more people can view it and reply to it. In JawShattera's thread he had almost no negative comments and the only people who replied were the ones who found it amusing, and the thread was never complained about and it eventually drifted off to the 2nd page and so on. No one complained about it because the people who replied were adding to the humor or giving him props for thinking of something so funny. But when Mr.Bungle makes a thread that has nothing but his personal opinions in it, you get people replying to it and cussing him out as if Mr.Bungle mentioned their name in his original post. Unless someone makes a thread and says like "asskicker you are a complete prick" then there's nothing wrong with it. It's just a thread that some people find entertaining, and some people find worthless. I think there are a lot of threads that are popular with some of you that I find boring and pointless, however, you don't see me asking the mods to ban the people in the threads just because I don't find it entertaining or interesting. I just don't reply to it and it harms me in no way.

Thanks to whoever gave me good rep in this thread. I don't know who it was but I'm glad you aren't taking my tone the wrong way!

The truth is I can tolerate retarded threads and shit like that to a certain extent, but overdoing it pisses me off. I mean there is the MMA forum lounge. Troll as much as you want in their. Please don't fill the actual MMA forums with crap. Esp the threads that aren't about useless shit. Sometimes the trolling is actually funny, but then when we see thread after thread of it, it gets a little to much.

Yea that makes sense if it is not on topic of the respective forum then I can understand.

People post stupid stuff wherever you go. And the bigger the forum the more stupid posts there are. This forum really isn't that bad. People shouldn't post stupid shit, but, people shouldn't call others retards either. That really isn't cool. It eats me up when people use that word in a negative way. We're all in this together, we're meant to help each other out. Not call people names or tell them to kill themselves. The people who say that are the ones with the problems. I'm with WL2FU 110%

I gotta beef with alot of the racial stuff being posted these days. It was only two incidents, but I think even that was too much. I don't think it belongs anywhere on this forum. And I know some of you will respond with an essay to say it isn't racist. But your offending some people out here.

I don't understand how it is offensive. We all justified our statement with logical reasoning and you are the ONLY person complaining still. Just admit you orginally misunderstood what we implied and go on with your life. Or don't read the damn post. If you know you are a person who gets offended easily by racial comments, even when they are not racIST comments, then don't read the thread. Have some self control man no one is putting a gun to your head.
