Trolls neg-repping
So how bout this as an idea - When idiotic know-it-all teens (or anyone any age, actually) comes in here and starts trolling, throw a special flag on them that labels them as a troll, so that when they give negative reputation to those forum members who do contribute, their troll flag converts it to positive reputation instead.

No, don't block their ability to give negative rep. I'm proud of getting neg-repped by these losers. It's a badge of honor. They come in here to troll, post their idiotic crap, I soundly refute their crap, they can't overturn my refutation, so they resort to name calling and neg-repping.

I win.

Except, my reputation does actually go down. So while I'm proud to have defeated the troll (in what was admittedly an unfair battle of wits since he was unarmed), I am admittedly a little irritated to lose the rep.

I want that badge of honor to stay there, proudly proclaiming my victory over the trolls, but it seems I should gain reputation for it (or XP, or gold, or Orcrist, Glamdring, and Sting which are the penultimate reward for defeating trolls) instead of losing reputation.

Just a thought. A rambling thought.

It's just a kid, don't let it get to ya. Looks like hobbitgirl was kind enough to add back the rep you lost. In the end, rep won't get you banned as there is no rules against having bad rep. There's no one here who is going to immediately assume that because you pissed off a young kid that you're a bad person. Well, at least, I won't assume that.

Anyway, you're groovy in my book, don't let people get to ya too much online Wink

Jesus! He is on the dumb side. And I thought he was just trying to be funny and was actually feeling sorry for him getting mocked so much...

Gotta hand it to Muffs, though. He has a nose for these things.

Muffs is to trolls as hogs are to a truffle in the forest. Except that pigs enjoy eating the truffles, and muffs enjoys stomping on them..... Very much.

I didn't know that. Consider I wonder if that's why he's always humping someone's leg.

All this talk of truffles reminds me of the very first story I wrote at uni. About a tree that wanted to be a truffle... Rolleyes
