    forum search? google? bing!


    or they could post anonymously
    Lets face it, if everyone googled their problems, the fourm would be quite dead.
    If in this case she is new, would she know how to use it?

    I think that particular thread you can definitely see why it could be TSRers being too quick to call someone a call, but I think that is an exception. TSR seems to have a LOT of trolls, more than I've ever experienced at any other forum anyway.

    I remember 2 particular threads by the same user, the first one was describing was the OP saying she was "obsessed" with this popular girl she'd never met and was pretending to be her when online. The second made a DAY later and started with referencing the previous thread and started "oh how this brings back memories" from years ago and said how she was over imitating this girl and had actually met her in person and that. Yet NOBODY got it was a troll. :rolleyes:

    YOu lot need to stop being pussy ass *****es. If she isnt a troll she deserves to be ripped apart for coming on here and asking dumb questions. Plus she's just gross.
    Grow up. It's not funny or clever, it's just really sad.

    There are plenty of occasions when someone is clearly not trolling and all and yet everyone seems to believe they are. However, having been active on here for well over 3 years and on other forums for almost 10 years, I'm getting pretty good at telling the difference. This one is definitely a troll, albeit a fairly talented one.

    By the way, the OP of this thread is probably the same person who started the thread with the fat girl. Someone might want to IP check that.

    well how would they have found this forum in the first place?

    googled? well that would have presented quite a few answers to start with

    friend etc recommended the forum? likely that they would have joined up then, & at least had a read of some of the threads

    Maybe some people prefer answers unique to their situation? Rather than a generic answer?

    I would usualy agree, but in this case, why would using search be able to tell her what top to wear? which was her original post

    well they wouldnt have found this forum then will they?
    as it wouldnt contain the 'unique answer' they are looking for

    i suppose it might contain the most number of generic answers, & so they decide to join & ask their question.

    ah, i was responding to the idea of trolls in general



    what top to wear?
    would that really be someones first post on a site? or even in their first 10?

    does anyone really think they would get better advice from a group of people they dont know, than they would from someone they know, heck even their next door neighbour.

    If that is a personal attack, then her comment on that OP for her display picture is also a personal attack, no?

    As i expected Trigger or one of her chums already neg repped me with no name , i love how the members with all the rep who think they they have power still need to hide behind the annonimity of the rep system.

    Actually, I retract what I said earlier; just read what she posted in one of the earlier threads, she deserves whatever she gets. :yes:
