    OMG, it's a rabid dog! Maybe if I yell at it it will go away...

    Oh, great, a poison ivy patch. *Sigh* I guess I'll have to take off my shoes and stomp on it to kill it....

    Christ! There's a hornet's nest on the shed! Time to whack at it with a broom...

    Well, shit. There's a hole in this blanket. Maybe if I cut it out no one will notice....

    Y'know, I dislike this person soo much that I feel complelled to spend ever more time with them so I can discover more flaws to complain about....



    Feel free to add your own examples of futile negative attachment behaviours

    It's so hard Gillette. Sometimes they can be so... so... ya'know, that I find it really really difficult not to growl and bark.

    I'm sorry.

    PS. please don't ban me, I can be a good pup too... sometimes.

    I know the feeling, Pup, I've blown my cool with them, too. I just posted this as a reminder to ourselves that as hard as it can sometimes be to resist the temptation more often than not it degrades the situation rather than improving it.

    As my pappy always used to say, "Never argue with an idiot. Observers might not be able to tell the difference between you".

    Trolling a troll only makes another troll. Its that simple. Its like a bank robber going after a thief. There has to be a better way. I think the best thing to do is report them and leave it alone. Let the mods take care of it.

    In England we have an expression...

    If it looks like dog shit, smells like dog shit, feels like dog shit and tastes like dog shit, then what you have... is dog shit.

    Closley followed by...

    If shit don't stink don't poke it.

    In fact we have a fair few expression involving shit.

    Pip pip, tally hoe!

    I understand how people feel. However the best course of action is simply to report them. The mods will take care of it. Im sure of this. Just give them a chance.

    What irks me about ALL this bad behavior, is after agenda has been played, and their roll has been pointed out that no one does anything about them.

    Got to love the story of tale of the towns smartass who happens to be down at the blacksmiths, when he sees a horse shoes and picks it up and drops it quickly. The smithy laughs and says, that shoe hot, nah replies the smartass, it just don't take me long to look at a horseshoe. :rolleyes:

    Learn to love me
    Assemble the ways
    Now, today, tomorrow and always
    My only weakness is a list of crime
    My only weakness is ... well, never mind, never mind

    Oh, Troll Hunters of the world
    Unite and take over
    Hand it over


    But last night the plans of a future war
    Was all I saw on channel four


    A heartless hand on my shoulder
    A push - and its over
    Alabaster crashes down
    (six months is a long time)
    Tried living in the real world
    Instead of a shell
    But before I began ...
    I was bored before I even began

    Trollbusting.
    It it that obama-hater, hunginjockstrap again? Complaining about how Obama supporters are narrow minded/brainwashed/stupid/etc? Using the 3 same posts over and over...
    Ever notice how the trolls seem to epitomize what they're trolling about?... or is it just me? :dunno:. Anyways... It's not sporting to hunt trolls... They're just stupid animals.
