A troll is someone who doesn’t like the content of a website, criticizes those who write content for the website, claims it’s not worth wasting bandwidth on, then becomes obsessed with wasting his/her bandwidth by scrutinizing every little thing on it and wasting bandwidth all night long writing sarcastic post submissions and comments, because they are unhappy they ran into an article that didn’t tickle their fancy.
They take their anger out on the website for having the audacity to publish an article they didn’t like, then engage themselves heavily in talking about how unengaging it is, instead of just simply googling the content that will make them happy. They ignorantly don’t bother to find out what the site is about, expecting it to be what THEY want it to be, then hit the trolling ground running because they are disappointed that the site isn’t what they want it to be.
Every website gets a troll or two now and then. Fortunately, they are far outnumbered by those who do enjoy and appreciate the website. And they are always dealt with appropriately.
I didn’t make this website with the expectation everyone would like it. I don’t make a dime from it, and it would be real fucking easy to click one button and make it go away forever.
And I have thought about doing it many times. What keeps me from doing it?
MANY comments and emails from users who tell me how much they like it, and how it helps them get through living in Philippines.
So if you like the site, welcome! If you don’t like it, WHY ARE YOU HERE? Are you a masochist? Or just simply a troll? There really is no other option.
Go find a site you like.
I just figure since I pay for the domain name, and I pay the monthly server fees, I should be the one to decide what is going to get published, what the site is about, and which assholes to ban from the site. You see, that’s why I get to have the “Administrator” role. That’s what administrators do. If I don’t want to hear your stupid shit anymore, I ban you. If you don’t want to hear my stupid shit anymore, you can muster up the self control enough to NOT COME TO THE WEBSITE AND READ IT.
See how that works?
If I wanted people to critique the intelligence levels and significance of people’s articles here, I would open a critic’s corner section on the site. But do you see one? NO.
If you come and start acting like a dumbfuck by leaving comments that essentially say (in a childish voice), “This is a stupid, trivial article, it’s not intelligent”, simply because the author wanted to share their day with us, or a concern, or a bitch for release of frustration, NOT TO MENTION, THAT IS WHAT THIS SITE IS HERE FOR, DUH!, you will be taken out with the trash. Because we don’t want to hear what you think about the level of intelligence of an article. They are there for discussion on the topic, not for critics to use as a platform for their need to try to convince the world how intelligent they are by cutting down other people’s articles.
