What you can and can not call people...

It seems that you can call people racists, you can call them nazi's... but don't dare call them a troll.

Very interesting....

Arbo, I know many good adjectives...

But to your point... I do wonder if "trolling" works... it's not a noun

I'd like to know if a Mod took the action on his/her own, or did a member click the cry button?

Probably the cry button, I'd guess. But the way the system is set up, we never know. Kinda unfortunate.

Do you have examples where people have been reported for calling someone a nazi or a racist and gotten away with it? Personally, I believe someone calling someone a troll has been on the radar as a warning for some time. The thing about LTUP, is some folks think if they see something like that and it goes unwarned, it isn't an offense, and that is why reporting posts that break the rules has an effect on how it is moderated, and is expected of the users. The cry button as you two gentlemen refer to it. Sour grapes.

Troll is a 'stupid' term - it's appropriate for those with an IQ of a small herbivore or 11 year olds but quipped by adults, it has a 'fascile' ring to it!

I understand perfectly why you do not like it.

You can call the post about anything you want, but not the poster.....or is it also illegal to call a post a method of fishing?

You can do it by baiting them... .. with the way the rules are written. One can hit the "cry button" for just about anything....

This thread appears to be mocking the moderators of this board, as well as attempting to provoke them.

Oh what a lovely tactic by some... to make things into what they are not. It has nothing to do with moderators, it is merely and observation of what passes muster and what does not. It's not like anyone threatened to punch someone in the face or anything.
