this post was started because I have noticed that when a website becomes influential the bad guys come in.
What I have observed on several sites seems to be a sophisticated attack.
There seems to be a 3 "person" approach as far as I can tell.
Troll #1 is the mean uncouth one like a bit of a drunken sailor. He will pass himself off as a (plumber , truck driver, carpenter) in other words " the working man". A common salt of the earth sort "who tells it like it is"
Troll number 2 (who I am quite sure is the same person) comes in as an educated man with cool, sort of debonair, sophistication and passes himself off as a university sort.
Troll number 3 seems to have nothing to do with number 1 and 2 but again I am quite sure is also the same person.
This one is always a woman. There is a reason for this.
So here is how it looks.
Randy Real person has started a post\
"hi everyone-- I think the reptilians are the most dangerous type of alien etc etc etc"
Ronda Real Person-- replies.
Hey Randy cool post ! I was thinking the same thing. But I've heard the Insectiods come a close second ! etc etc
Now here we go---
Troll #1-- Holy bejeesus-- have either of you read a book ?? Comic books dont count ! Bugs and lizards ? Your off your medication ! ETC ETC
NOW the hope is that either RAndy or Rhonda will respond.
They are a bit too clever for Troll #1 and they ignore Troll #1
Troll 1 now asks Troll 2 to come in (same person I believe)
Hey Troll 2 you seem to be sensible person. Have you ever seen such idiots in your life ??
Now here is how Troll 2 (Same person) will respond.
Troll 2 will chastise Troll 1 but proceed to give a back handed complement to Randy and Rhonda (a back handed complement is a put down that on the surface seems to be trying to praise someone) Here we go then
Troll 2-- Now Troll 1 you are being too hard on Randy and Rhonda. I'm not impressed with your manners ! This site does not condone your type of behavior. Now addressing the matter you all are discussing. I would like to say based on the likely education level of Randy and Rhonda they are doing the best they can to understand a complicated subject. We must praise them for trying even though they are way off base etc etc
Troll 1 then will apologize to Troll 2. Yes I can see your right troll 2 . I guess its just my common upbringing. Where I come from I just tell it like it is. I should tone it down. But I just cant get my head around the nonsense people believe today eTC etc.
(now what is happening is Randys post is morphing into some argument and not about Reptilians) If Randy or Rhonda allow them selves to start arguing about the put downs the trolls win because it all about getting you to respond and lose your cool.
Finally there is I think a third. Troll 3 who is sweet innocent woman who introduces something nonsensical or also off topic. " I think house spiders are the most dangerous insects of all" --- I just cant stand those creepy crawlies !! etc etc.
If she is berated by Randy or Rhonda she will be defended by Troll 2 who will say. "Randy ! Berating other members of the group is unacceptable. I have a thought of reporting you to the Farsight board. This is outrageous etc etc. Before you know it YOU are being accused of being abusive.
KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN AND IGNORE THE TROLL. NEVER RESPOND TO THEM EVER.
