Dealing With Chat Trolls

So, as some of you know, there recently was an incident with a troll in the chat. Because of this incident, I wish to address the Interplosion community as a whole with how to properly deal with them. While I understand that trolls can be infuriating, I ask that you resist the temptation to post with sarcasm and to attempt to counter the trolls with nonsense. If dealing with a troll, just let the Mods/Admins deal with it, especially if there are a lot of you in the chat. Continuously posting with taunts and insults does not help the situation and could result in whatever Admins/Mods that are present to be drowned out in the sea of babbling gibberish.

While I understand that you wish to help the community by trying to get the troll to leave or to make them slip or what have you, most of the time it will do nothing but the opposite. Trolls want you to react, so having the whole chat explode with people screaming in caps, or sarcastically posting things that seem to support the trolls arguments is going to have them continue.

In the future should we have trolls, please just let the Mods/Admins address the issue.

Thank you.

Re: Dealing With Chat Trolls

Very funny. But I am going to say that we stop this Tom(Tim)-foolery so that way the thread actually informs people instead of degrading to people posting and signing it with either their name or someone else's.

You did nothing, this was someone else.
