    Hi everyone, tonight I've seen at least two trolls spam the thread posts, there was a new member who kept posting stupid questions as threads (what's a great date rape drug?) and the other one who posts endless threads about him and his girlfriend.

    I'm a bit disturbed because on the stupid question thread, someone took it upon themselves to post a hardcore porn image, I just wasn't expecting it :eek: The girl wasn't even pretty!

    So yeah, as the title says, are the trolls becoming more frequent on TSR?

    I'd be interested to know what makes someone troll and their background.

    Probs because everyone on TSR finds it their duty to state the obvious and troll threads usually end up being bumped to the front page because so many posts going "THIS IS A TROLL" "*INSERT PICTURE OF A TROLL*" "YOU'RE TROLLING"

    Maybe if they were ignored they wouldn't be so prominent.

    More importantly, if you see a troll post, you should report the post, using the post report button, and not respond.

    where's the fun in that?
    wait why am I replying to this, I need to make a thread about finding the cure for cancer, or the nutrition of paper, and something inappropriate about either the other gender or an ethnic minority...

    With respect, it's not about having fun, it's about keeping TSR a good place to visit. If you want to have fun with trolls, you know where to find "/b/".

    Sorry I might not have made my tone clear, I was completely taking the piss. I tend to report troll posts myself.
    Sometimes I make them I guess...but that's generally rare.
    And it's lead to other threads bearing called trollish (when they weren't meant to be>_ If I wanted fun with trolls I'd start dating TSR mods :p:

    Nah, I don't think the numbers have gone up. Just one particular troll being extra determined with porn-trolling.

    What is the procedure for when someone porn-trolls? Are they immediately banned?

    I think I know which one you're referring to, I think they just post an explicit image meant to shock you? I've been on here since 2008 and it was the first time I'd ever seen someone post something porographic.

    It varies but generally we can't say what the procedure is :p:

    Anyone posting nude pics/porn does get an instant temporary ban though. You've done well avoiding it for two years :gasp:
