The spam was rapidly removed but Tapatalk often caches things. If you clear the cache it will disappear. Once again, we are not going to discuss the moderation of another site.

THAT is the type of nitwit that keeps Darwinism churning along. But that's also the type of nitwit that will do it, survive it, and then con more naive people into doing it with a YouTube video.

That guy is bad ju-ju.

So does any body know what the official definition of a " troll" is ?

it seems to be loosly bandyed about !

Is it just some one who diss-agree's with your opinion ?
Or is there more to it than that ?

What standards do the moderators use to judge these types ?

The term is more often abused than valid. It usually is said to someone that a person or people disagree with. If they get angry or upset about what the person says, they blame the person and call them a troll.
And they know, some forums are so strict about it, that even calling someone a troll, the Mods will ban them without question.

I don't think this site goes for that.

I will give advice to anyone that asks with certain restrictions.

Heck some electricians worry me when they ask for advice, such as how do I do this hot

And it is something beyond the limits of common sense

Nope. I did not even think of the DIY forum when I posted. I was talking in general terms.
Okay, an email address or cell phone number would suffice as a pathway to Paldom!

No Facebook? How about Twitter?

I don't use social media at all other than company stuff which I don't update since it hasn't done much.

You never asked me for contact info before or else I would have given it a long time ago. Check your PM.
