halfof33: Weaver95: I figured OWS was doing right when the cops and FBI started beating the snot outta them for asking wall street uncomfortable questions.

Remember your "live" blow by blow of the non-existent "police riot" in Boston? And how it was the most violent police misconduct in 30 years?

Lolz, what did you make off that fable?


Dude do you rage that nobody ever bothered to pay you for your misunderstood genius?

Harrisburg, PA. I see your problem there. MOVE! In the meantime, commute down to Frederick, MD.

tell me about it.  this place is becoming actively hostile to tech jobs.  i'm not saying our legislature is anti-technology but...well, they're still not sure what the fuss is about all those magic boxes people hold up to their ears and talk into all the time...'tis most unnatural!

Fluorescent Testicle: James!: How are you defining troll, by the way?

People who post the exact same bullshiat, thread after thread after thread after motherfarking thread, while completely ignoring any attempt at debate (either by running away, calling their catch a "Libtard" or somesuch, or repeating their original non-point as if saying it enough times will magically make it true) and being defended to the death by Fark's so-called "Mods."


Okay, lets just start banning anyone who isn't making a unique and original argument.  Also we'll make a rule that people are required to debate you.  Not just debate you, but debate you in a formal manner. That's be fun as hell for everyone.

phaseolus: mahuika: The dame that got him the job had a pout like a kitten and legs that went all the way to China in the sheerest silk stockings. They seemed to be arranged to stare at. They were visible to the knee and one of them well beyond. The knees were dimpled, not bony and sharp. The calves were beautiful, the ankles long and slim and with enough melodic line for a tone poem. He just forgot to mention it.


Chandlerized that for you.

seems legit.

No one could possibly want to go to the Above Top Secret site and troll.

Their critical thinking skills are too developed, and their skepticism is legendary. To try would just be a waste of time.

it was pretty bad.  half the shiat the cops pulled didn't make it on the evening news.  And fox news didn't touch the story at all.  which is weird, considering you'd think they'd LOVE seeing hippies bleed and writhing in pain.

GAT_00: Rev.K: I'm guessing they do exist on Fark. I can't think of anything else to explain the long list of known threadsh*tters who show up in every single thread about a particular topic.

I don't think that's the proof so much as they last a couple months, and then disappear to be replaced with an entirely new login created 4 days previously saying the exact same things.


Says the most well-known paid shill ;)

2013-01-10 03:25:56 PM  
Ok, my boss isn't here yet, so I'm back (for a few at least).

James!: If we started booting people for having shiatty opinions we'd be empty in a week.


Yes. And anyone who asks you to boot someone for shiatty opinions should be ignored.

That doesn't mean there isn't a serious trolling issue on Fark completely outside of the ridiculous "people who disagree with me are trolls!" dynamic that you seem to think is the only thing happening, despite mountains of evidence to the contrary in this very thread.
 
2013-01-10 03:26:03 PM  
Some of you aren't even doing it "for free". Some dude is getting paid to do this. Liters like me are doing it for free. Tfers are paying 5 bucks a month for the privileged of being able to do it first.

Fark-liters: At least we're not as economically retarded as those TotalFark Trolls.

Nobodyn0se: Alright, so in other words, you're not interested in actually discussing the problem, but are hell bent on obfuscating the issue. Good luck with that whole "trolls are only people who disagree with you" thing. I doubt it will work, but keep going with it.


I don't know that you're the right person to discuss this particular issue with Nobodyn0se. A google search for site:fark.com Nobodyn0se troll pulls up an awful lot of pages and if you take the time to click through them, you're awfully loose with the word troll.
 
2013-01-10 03:27:03 PM  

david_gaithersburg: NowhereMon: I wonder how many of these we have at FARK...

.
There sure are a lot here. Remember to OWS threads and how they were swarmed by posters in unison, and now the gun ban threads. Welcome to the world of the DNC.


Well this is totally reasonable and not at all paranoid. I'm convinced!

You want people to stop saying that Fark has more paid trolls and mod alts than real users? Then stop acting as if the trolls are worth more to you than we are.

which is pretty OCD when you think about it.  I think my last time out was because I did something really funny with the greenlight/submission queue.  ok, well I thought it was funny, but apparently various mods/admins did not appreciate my humor.  still makes me giggle tho.

This thread was very entertaining and I enjoyed it a great deal. I must express remorse, however, that the master race Fark elites have once again expressed a mix of giddiness, concern and excitement at the very prospect of this thread being greenlit whereby the freebie Fark proletariat might post on the subject. We "liters" are intelligent, well read complex individuals who enjoy the nuances of a political discussion as much as our star bellied sneech bretheren. It is both hurtful and ignorant to paint us with an air of inferiority and ignorance. Now if you'll excuse me, I done pooped my pants again.
