This hopefully isn't necessary but... by Layla on 24 February 2003 4:57pm
 
I was just thinking that we might want to prepare ourselves for the (unlikely) event of some nasty peace-wrecker guy invading these pages. What I mean is, if somebody were to write intentionally insulting stuff on this message board to annoy/upset us then maybe we should all have agreed beforehand to not respond at all to any messages like that as no reaction would be the quickest way to get rid of the pest.
I've seen this going on in other message boards and I'm sure yous have too, and the fact that it's so peaceful and friendly here is part of the reason why this is such a great site. I'm sure it will stay like this but just in case, we should maybe agree beforehand not to dignify any mean,rude messages with responses.

Does anyone agree?

Good idea. I'll refrain unless personally attacked. I'll most likely refrain then too. No-- put me down for definitely will refrain!!

I absolutely agree. It has happened at the other website I frequent, they are called "trolls.' Good netiquette is to do exactly as you have outlined-- ignore them- even if they personally attack you.
I have seen trolls wreak havoc on otherwise peaceful and friendly sites-- name calling, starting trouble,giving false and misleading information, scam artists,etc. It can be quite upsetting!
Good point, Layla-- glad you brought it up.
Peace,
Helen

Yeah, we are very nice to each other. I can't see any of us 'interattacking." Y'all are just too too sweet! :)

I am thinking of those folks out there who thrive on the anonymity of cyberspace-- show up start trouble and leave.
remember when someone ( a while ago) logged on as M.Palin and addressed someone's concern about Michael...Fooled me, for a microsecond. That was not nice! That's a troll.
I remember us Palinites jumped down this "M.Palin"'s throat too! drove him outta town!! Whooppeeee!
We are a bunch of wovable wapscallions here!

True, I agree, but I have to ask: What brought this on? Just wondering.

Ello,
I think Layla was just giving a heads up in case it happened. It's always good to be prepared! :)I know I was completely unprepared when it happened to me and some other folks on another website, and I was quite upset about it. I wish I had known just to ignore them, it really is the best thing to do.
So, just in case... :)

Good you brought it up Layla. I too have also experinced this sort of thing at many other boards as well. It is always best to ignore the post, or report them to the webmaster to have them removed ASAP.

Just remember to think happy thoughts people, we're all in this together :)

Count me in I will ignore
what would we be looking for

Someone strange come in to chat?
No way folks we cant have that

Keep us safe - that would be nice
hope I dont have to say that twice!

We must protect and so defend
keep blathering on - to the bitter end!

But, you're all just a bunch of mindless twits! Who would listen to you anyway!?!
TOTALLY KIDDING!!! Please, don't throw any rotten veggies at me!
Hands down, this is the KINDEST site I've ever been on. I've had run-in's with a few baddies "out there", and agree that the best way to take care of them is to ignor them! Lead and I will follow.
Now, if you start to ignor me.... :-O
kisses-
