Fuck Trolls

Alrighty, troll-babies.

We're all reasonable human beings with a good deal of intellectual capacity. If you can read this, then you most likely know what "debate" is.

To be perfectly honest, I prefer the company of those with values and opinions similar to mine. I spend a good part of the day banging my head against the wall, already, and I'd rather not have to add ANOTHER argument in there. I will deal with debate, when it's respectful, as it comes.

I decide what's respectful 'round these parts. I'm a pretty good judge. So.

Man-hater comments...deleted. This shit sucks comments... deleted. Making fun of women in general or women who post here in any way that I DEEM as patriarchal...deleted.

In fact, I can and will delete what I want when I want without further explanation. This space is one that I'm carving, and it's a fucking safe space for women to talk about their shit. Punto.

See, to me the safety and well-being of women is far more important than the principles of those that some would call our "founding fathers." And besides, I don't believe that the first amendment says anywhere that I have to fucking put up with your stupid bullshit, anyways. Don't try and wave the constitution at me....'cause I just won't fucking care. How's THAT fer yer liberal law?

This is an anti-porn safe space.

And if I've seen you fucking with people on other sites, then it should be obvious. Forget it. I'll just delete your shit. If I don't just delete it, I'll probably just answer with "so what?" or "fuck you." But I'll probably just delete it. Depends on whether or not your display of idiocy or immaturity makes me giggle, on account of how stupid it is.

So that's my policy on trolls.

That made me chuckle for a while. Thanks for being willing to toss the trolls out, in spite of their squealing, "First amendment rights, first amendment rights!"

I seem to recall someone writing somewhere, "Blogging is like inviting someone over for tea. This blog is my house and you are my guest. If you say something I find to be objectionable, I have every right to ask you to leave. After all, this is my house."

Hey, Invader Pichu is the guy who keeps spamming our comments over at the Den because we banned him. Just so ya know, he doesn't recognize a woman's right to say "no" to him.

He's one of the primary reasons we had to turn on Comment Moderation.

Comment moderation. Put it up and watch them dissapear.

Freakin' beautiful. (Came over from the Den, of course). I am so looking forward to reading the rest of your posts here. Did I say this one was freakin' beautiful? Just making sure.

Great policy.
"I don't believe that the first amendment says anywhere that I have to fucking put up with your stupid bullshit, anyways"
Love it. I'm getting tough on trolls too. I don't have the time or the energy or the heart for it. Good for you.

deviousdiva said...

So you are female? so what ? You are still a troll. What's with the porn ? Are you so blind that you actually want to buy into that ?

TNTrash said...

I knew the troll would be the first to comment.

I don't give a rat's ass if you're female. You have your own blog, go forth and spread your poison. Fuck you. I don't go there and post. 'Cause I don't agree with your shit. So I don't read your shit. Sorry, but I ain't into the porn thing anymore. So fuck off. *flips you off*

TNTrash said...

Oh and thanks for the props from all my friends, whose posts will remain intact and undisturbed.

It puzzles me exceedingly that even with the availability of every sort of abuse of women as entertainment, there are trolls who feel the need to come to a feminist blog and abuse women. Who are these people? Do their mothers know who they are? Is the down side of these lovely interwebs the fact that trolls can now force their way in to groups that in the physical world would reject them?
I think your troll policy makes perfect sense. It is your tea party, after all, and who you choose to invite to the table is entirely up to you.

Yet again, a man's sense of privilege and entitlement lets him believe that women don't have the right to say 'no' to him.

I wonder if he tells that to his dates BEFORE they're back at his apartment. I doubt it.

Invader, do you know what "NO" means? Why don't you believe women have a right to say it to you?

Dubhe said...

Oh, right, you're female. Of course you are. *headpat* Whatever you say, dear.

I'm a guy. This proves it.

You can prove all kinds of stuff on the internet with a link. It's very important to be able to do so when your words carry so much substance. It helps to repeat it, that way you can be sure others didn't miss just how confident you are in your own arguments. See?

I ain't flipping out. I just hate trolls.

They're idiots with nothing productive to do, apparently.

*deletes your posts*

Devious Diva-- thanks so much for the linkage!

Awww, what's the matter Pikachu having a hard time getting over the fact that nobody wants to be your fwiend?

What's wrong Pikachu hon? Are you all angry that the mean ol' feminists won't let you be heard? Poor widdle Pikachu doesn't handle rejection very well.

This is the same troll who is literally obsessed with me. In fact, his behaviour would qualify as stalking if it wasn't on the internet. He tries to plaster my blog with his words, sends me emails and has even devoted a web site to me as well as a photoshopped pic of me.

Pikachu is like my very own little freakish tick whom I stare at in a jar and laugh at occasionally when the mood strikes me. Other than that though he's just a man who obsesses over the feminist blogosphere and me in particular.

Just delete him or enable moderation.
