Yeah I know. It's me right? I'm a troll? That's what I keep being told by a certain poster. That poster is now on my "Foes" list.

No, no, he's talking about troll-feeders.

Oops.

observer is a troll. Please do not post on their "all UW students are stupid" thread. Thank you.

No, observer is a mentally unstable real human being. That's probably a better reason to quit poking, I guess.

observer deliberately created the thread in question to insult and demean a group of people. I agree that observer probably suffers from a personality disorder but that is beside the point. Posts like this should not be responded to. I only bring it up here to encourage the administration to delete the thread. We don't need this kind of crap around here.

Do you agree Books?

Ignore her, ban him, delete that thread.

After all these years, some things never change. And you really wonder why forum activity is down?

I can't help but wonder what Observer is trying to accomplish. The complete collapse of the University of Wisconsin? Perhaps by ridiculing the University and its graduates, public sentiment will turn and the State will defund the entire University?

Was he fired by a boss who was a UW grad? Dumped by a girlfriend? Insulted by a co-worker?

What makes trolls tick?

I posted a mocking comment in that thread this morning. After being shamed by Jason and TBP's posts I went back and tried to delete it. Got a message saying something like "users are not allowed to delete posts in this forum."

So then I edited it, deleted all the text, and tried submitting it as a blank post. The initial response was something like "There are not enough characters in that post. Would you like to delete it?" I said yes, and lo and behold, it was gone.

Seems like there must be a bug somewhere in there. Either we are or aren't supposed to be able to delete our own posts in that thread.
