Default TROLL problem

Hopefully all of you will see this.

PLEASE, for the sake of this site, and for Marc's and my sanity, ignore anyone you suspect is an alias of a banned member, aka a troll. In other words, DON'T feed them!!

There is one in particual who absolutely gets off on the attention. Statements like "I guess I'm still pretty popular around here. " prove this. It is an issue of low self esteem, and getting a rise out of f-ing with people. VERY sad if you ask me.

If someone is banned or removed from the site for any reason, and they came to us asking to be reinstated on the grounds that they will not cause trouble, it will be seriously considered.
Everyone makes mistakes, everyone makes poor decisions in the heat of an argument. We understand this, and acknowledging it means something.
Then again, repeatedly re-joining with the sole purpose of causing trouble means you are just a lowlife with no chance of retribution.

So, if you suspect someone, ignore them and report the post.
If you were banned, contact us privately to see what we can do.
