Definition of a troll: In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[4] guys- don't feed the trolls. Ignore and move on. don't respond to this, don't respond to anything related to the inflamatory stuff on other threads. Ignore, Ignore, Ignore. Peace CT

  • Do you know what it will take to make the Grumpy Old Troll say "thank you" for the very first time? Dora and Boots do. First you'll have to help Dora up the Big Red Hill. Oops! The Big Red Hill is actually the Big Red Chicken, who will be happy to give them a ride. Use your mouse to click on the numbers in the right order and the Big Red Chicken will take Dora and Boots to Fishy Lake. Once there, they'll catch up with the fish, el pez--but they'll need your help in the water. Unlike other lakes, this one is full of snakes! When the way is clear, click on the fish and he'll swim. At Play Park find and click on the things that make the Grumpy Old Troll happy. Can you help Dora turn the Grumpy Old Troll into a thankful Old Troll?

    ach time you allow another person to get under your skin, you're choosing to give up control over your life. No matter how upset you get about the actions or behaviors of others, it won't change anything.  The only person you have control over is yourself, and if you're so busy being upset over the behavior of someone else then you have just given that person power over you.  Another person cannot make you upset without your consent. Be careful not to get wrapped up in another person's emotions, they are responsible for what they say, feel and act.  Don't allow them to drag you into their misery.  Detach yourself from the drama.Take responsibility for your emotions and get control over them.  Make a commitment to yourself that you will no longer allow others to determine how you feel.  As soon as you notice anger, hurt or fear arise take charge of those thoughts going through your mind, ask yourself who it is that is really in control of how you feel, is it another person that really has that kind of power over you or is it that you are letting them have that power over you?

  • Just sent an email to Marketing@BigGreenEgg.com regarding Salty Hogs BBQ ruining threads.  Perhaps others may wish to do so as well.

    I'm sure Salty will become tumescent.

  • +1 Cen-Tex. I always tell my daughters that the best way to deal with a bully is to completely ignore them. Don't react or give them the time of day. Well...not sure that is the best way...but that is my way.

    Actually, I think it's "forumabuse@biggreenegg.com" - if enough people complain, and especially point out the percentage of combative / abusive and trolling posts, then the forum admins will act accordingly.  

    So everyone who wishes to have the offender banned, please send the emails.

    It seems our emails worked. I wonder what he will come back as. I would like to see all his posts removed also.
  • Awesome job guys. My fav part of someone being banned? They change the avi to "user banned carry on" I find that funny ha. And thanks CT and HH. I'll save that address for next time.

    Great job everyone. I emailed BGE before this was posted about the guy. BGE does need some normal mods on here IMO.

    Yea. I'm sure bge IT works up the forum but a couple of lurking/active mods will quickly clean up a forum!

  • I wouldn't get too excited if you wanted him gone. He's been here longer than any of us and will be here when we are all gone. He has several handles and a lot of time on his hands and it's about to get cold in Cananda :) He's reading all this and loving it so just ignore if you don't like.

    I did not want to play the game here-but the above is the only obvious answer to "will the real ---- please stand up".  One could wonder "why" and likely never understand.  You can decide on your own who wins-but fishlessman has it right!

  • +1 Centex.  I have missed everyone, buy it was getting too weird.  I mean you are mostly all guys, and I was wondering if I had somehow got on a forum with too many XX chromosomes.  Everything was getting so nasty so I took a little vacation from it all!
