Like who? It sounds like you mean TM, but he didn't exactly join the community when a game came out. Things were different before Spiderweb had its own boards.

—Alorael, who has never seen any particular backlash against newbies with a new game before. He thinks it has more to do with last month's sudden surge in posts and surge in pointless posts as well.

Read the post again. Do you notice something unusual with the formatting? ;)

You see, now this is truly an impressive sight. I commend you, Nioca, on your taking the time to try out an in-joke. Took me a while to get it, sadly... but then again, I try really hard to forget that guy.

Yay for newbs who learn!

So really it was all Salmon's fault. So that's why he's been in hiding lately.

There's a whole series of tragicomic ex-Spiderwebbers. Shotts and Vince/Tails are the ones who come to mind for me, but I'm sure there are others. They're not really members of the community, though. They occasionally become in-jokes, but they fade pretty quickly.

—Alorael, who also doesn't think any of the true troublemakers came with a new game. There are always a few here today, gone tomorrow spammers, but true trolling takes diligence and dedication beyond the usual new game fans.

The question, then, is where the true trolls actually come from. I agree - they're not the same as the game noobs.

Take this Tech Support topic with two (fairly benign) posts by Eraser Head.

Strikes me as a literate, if immature and spiteful individual. No comparison with hostile oldbies like TM, or even UA or Ed Lemur, but far removed from Ed.

Unless Ed was acting, of course.

I don't know why you think UA and Ed Lemur are so bad? UA isn't even banned.

Sadly, this isn't my first attempt at an in-joke. However, this is the first one that actually worked. Even so, I still think it might have been a bit too subtle.

You crazy carrot! No one can forget Ed. :P

I don't know whether it's a good idea to start making inside jokes about Ed. It gives him publicity that he doesn't deserve.

Nioca, were you lurking before you joined this September. I just find that you making inside jokes about Ed or TM would be similar to me making inside jokes about, say, Djur and Scorp.

For three thousand years, the elves were unable to access their artefact in the storeroom warded against teleportation. See, this is why adventurers are needed to think up such absurd strategies such as teleporting to the room beside the warded room.

It's relative and personal. I feel I would have less trouble getting along with TM than either of these two.

Of course, I have recently concluded that I'm an obnoxious loon, so my scale shouldn't be applied by others.

That puts your posts per day in perspective. I guess you're making up for lost time.

—Alorael, who thinks every forum needs its goofballs. UA is odd, but he's really (mostly) harmless. Ed was an irritant that made the forums a less pleasant place, and the same can be said for most of his ilk.

That's a long time. Dikiyoba spent only a measly three days lurking before registering and posting.

No extremism please! The boards need to stay welcoming lest we become deeply entrenched internet xenophobes hellbent on solidifying the community.

If anyone still cares, what do you think of the topics like the Naruto Quiz one?

Well, I think Naruto is the spawn of Satan, but other than that, it wasn't too bad. :P

Extremism in defence of literacy is no vice. We must have clarity otherwise we will be overrun by chaos. Some of the questions in the game forums need to be translated before they can be answered.

If the boards can indeed suffer a doomsday scenario in which death is better than attempted treatment, then it would have to be a result of being invaded by pointless spam, infantile posting, and advertising. I don't think it's an unreasonable thing to dislike; how would you like to talk with a million igotpr0n4u's?
