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!
