Ex-facebook Trolls abound
« on: January 03, 2010, 09:00:21 PM »
As a lurker to this site for many months and seeing the trivialities of what is being put forth by these supposed FEers I have come to the conclusion that this site is full of trolls who have nothing better to do than argue for arguments sake and attempt to belittle people.  Call me naive, but I find it extremely hard to actually buy into the belief that there may be someone who genuinely believes the Earth is flat and than continues doing so despite the ludicrous amounts of evidence it isn't.  But this isn't a call on that debate so please don't respond as such.

There were once discussion boards on Facebook long ago, that have sinced been removed, in my belief removed because of all the trolls and associated discrimination going on with them.  Coincedentally these  FE boards seem to have come online around that time.  (yep, go check the facts, I couldn't be bothered).  I will be happy to admit that I had a troll character on Facebook at the time and after the discussion boards were removed it seemed pointless keeping the account. (Yep, in another post I will happily tell you how crap facebook is and how lame the majority of people are using it).  I know I wasn't the only troll ( in my network) and I also know that we did "troll missions" to other networks where groups of us would go to another 'country' and abuse them and the trolls that existed there.  Similarly other trolls from other networks did the same.  All in, it was great times for those involved and was very sad as the facebook administrators took steps to close down the discussion boards.  The trolls on Facebook used the same 'tactics' I see here such as picking on spelling, not using facts, having very crap references, not using faces or real names etc.

Now what I am proposing is this... a bunch of the trolls from facebook (or possibly another site, but I can't think of one maybe as large with such trolls frequenting it) have got together and put their collective minds together to form this website we have here.  The discussion boards here run almost identically to the facebook pages and it seems they are policed the same as well (in other words very little).  The trolls I know from facebook were open to argue all kinds of bizarre theories and conspiracies, mainly just to see who they could suck in (again evidence was scant, normally a few outrageous comments with very little facts).  Now when Facebok shut down the lines of bullying communication they had, they banded together as all good trolls do and formed this site.  It would have taken a small bit of research to find something that is extremely absurd as an idea but has a smidgeon of 'research' and 'evidence' to back it up.  (with the internet nowadays anything like such is possible).  The Flat Earth theory must have sounded like a gold mine when these firm believers happened to come across such theories as it beautifully fits the criteria and will also be host to other such conspiracies such as man did not land on the moon ( if you can believe that).  The FE theory also can pick holes in a persons knowledge of physics, climatology, astrology and a host of other scientific disciplines (don't bother that these are all thoroughly studied by academics with jobs who don't have time to get on the net and put forth bs theories, they are too busy publishing the truth in academic research journals).

So I am just curious to see if anyone else agrees with this.  Are than any other previous facebook trolls who are game enough to come out into the open?

You expanded what was actually 3 sentences worth of information into 3 paragraphs.
The meat of what you said was. "I think this place is full of trolls. I saw the exact same kind of FE proposals by people on Facebook. Facebook got closed at the same time (I think, I don't really know for a fact, but it would make my proposition plausible) so therefore all the trolls just moved to here.

Say it like that.^^

If this was the SAT test, that would be the answer to "What sentence is irrelevant?" That the other 90% of your paragraphs.

Not you, stupid.  I was talking to EnglshGentleman.  You can go fuck yourself and die.

...No, that was mean.  I'm just kidding.  You can stay, too.  I lol'd at the "parsnip boy" in your other thread.  Also, to answer your original question, while many of us are trolls, and others are devil's advocates, there are a few genuine believers.

Fair enough.  The meat of your argument is I posted I couldn't be bothered reading when I actually did, I just thought it was a funny joke to post 'tl;dr' at the time.  Then when I see the chance to troll it for a few laughs (not sure with whom, guessing yourself but) I did.  All in I did a summary of it which anyone could do to any thread. 

Here, let me summarise this whole website... trolls having fun.

Getting responses does not a troll make. Getting an emotional one is required to be a successful troll. I simply wanted to point out no one here wants to hear you life story. Gaia is probably more your speed.

As a lurker to this site for many months and seeing the trivialities of what is being put forth by these supposed FEers I have come to the conclusion that this site is full of trolls who have nothing better to do than argue for arguments sake and attempt to belittle people.  Call me naive, but I find it extremely hard to actually buy into the belief that there may be someone who genuinely believes the Earth is flat and than continues doing so despite the ludicrous amounts of evidence it isn't.  But this isn't a call on that debate so please don't respond as such.

There were once discussion boards on Facebook long ago, that have sinced been removed, in my belief removed because of all the trolls and associated discrimination going on with them.  Coincedentally these  FE boards seem to have come online around that time.  (yep, go check the facts, I couldn't be bothered).  I will be happy to admit that I had a troll character on Facebook at the time and after the discussion boards were removed it seemed pointless keeping the account. (Yep, in another post I will happily tell you how crap facebook is and how lame the majority of people are using it).  I know I wasn't the only troll ( in my network) and I also know that we did "troll missions" to other networks where groups of us would go to another 'country' and abuse them and the trolls that existed there.  Similarly other trolls from other networks did the same.  All in, it was great times for those involved and was very sad as the facebook administrators took steps to close down the discussion boards.  The trolls on Facebook used the same 'tactics' I see here such as picking on spelling, not using facts, having very crap references, not using faces or real names etc.

Now what I am proposing is this... a bunch of the trolls from facebook (or possibly another site, but I can't think of one maybe as large with such trolls frequenting it) have got together and put their collective minds together to form this website we have here.  The discussion boards here run almost identically to the facebook pages and it seems they are policed the same as well (in other words very little).  The trolls I know from facebook were open to argue all kinds of bizarre theories and conspiracies, mainly just to see who they could suck in (again evidence was scant, normally a few outrageous comments with very little facts).  Now when Facebok shut down the lines of bullying communication they had, they banded together as all good trolls do and formed this site.  It would have taken a small bit of research to find something that is extremely absurd as an idea but has a smidgeon of 'research' and 'evidence' to back it up.  (with the internet nowadays anything like such is possible).  The Flat Earth theory must have sounded like a gold mine when these firm believers happened to come across such theories as it beautifully fits the criteria and will also be host to other such conspiracies such as man did not land on the moon ( if you can believe that).  The FE theory also can pick holes in a persons knowledge of physics, climatology, astrology and a host of other scientific disciplines (don't bother that these are all thoroughly studied by academics with jobs who don't have time to get on the net and put forth bs theories, they are too busy publishing the truth in academic research journals).

So I am just curious to see if anyone else agrees with this.  Are than any other previous facebook trolls who are game enough to come out into the open?

Seems you posted this on the wrong site. www.livejournal.com there's a link to people who'll care.

I'm fine on here till you guys get bored and boot me or I boot myself.  Anyway the line is cast and the fish are teaming in.
You will find that these fish have seen every line possible, and are coming to yours out of sheer boredom. don't make the mistake that you are the first person to post something like this or come with these arguments.
I truly don't care

I know all this.  Doesn't phase me.
@Raist
Can't be bothered checking other sites out yet, even though I am sure they may be ripe for picking.  I have just been lurking for a while having a laugh at a few and boredom finally got the better of me today.
Why do we fall back to earth? Because our weight pushes us down, no laws, no gravity pulling us. It is the law of intelligence.

I believe that you believe this. But if you actually had an inkling, you would be gone by now.

There are other websites you can go to to make friends.  I am here simply to laugh at a few people.

No you aren't. You're here for attention, and to make a feeble attempt at lulz. Otherwise you woulda kept lurking.
