    So: Lets see your arguments. Why do you think I am a troll?
    Let there be at least neutrality elsewhere, why turn threads into battle fields?
    Come all ye cowardly "troll hunters"! Accuse me in here!

    Sorry Sigurd, but since you asked, no, You are not a troll.
    Unfortunately, you just don't seem to possess the gravitas of the dreaded ghastly green skinned forum troll.
    Not that I am saying you lack the ability or will to achieve such through proper time and diligent practice. But right now? Totally second rate.
    And even if you achieve an appropriate trollishness, that still doesn't rate as apex predator.

    If you remember your geek lore properly, you will recall that trolls are not immune to fire.
    And the penultimate source of fire with which to sear ghastly green skin from knobbish troll bone? Why the Boring Flamer of course.
    Study the entirety of the following thread, properly heed the model given, and you too may someday be a Boring Flamer.

    But trolls can not be targeted by abilities opponents control.. Can they. And trolls can regenerate...

    In respect to Richard Garfield

    We can all be trolls sometimes. But i usually give, and i only troll extremely obvious. Like above..
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    You come here for your own amusement only, add virtually nothing to the forum, more often than not spout irrelevant, self-indulgent nonsense. Your participation here is almost exclusively at the expense of others. Isn't that what a troll is?

    Come on guys if sigurd is doing something you don't like, can't we just tell him what it is and give him a chance to change his posting style?
    He's trying to engage with us and is not really being offensive, we's just trying to get people to converse with him, can't we help steer him back on path to doing it the right way? I hate that everyone feels they have to moan about him all the time, you guys don't like it either, so lets put him back on right path, or at least give a go.

    I agree with this normally, but I have made a long post before in the Feedback section telling his exactly what I don't like about his participation here, as well as various occasions all over the forum by me and others and he hasn't seemed to have done much about it. Here he started a thread inviting feedback. Should I keep quiet and let him go on as he likes?

    Fair point Kal, and I read your previous long post. Maybe sigurd you could show some sign you're taking these comments on board and are willing to make an effort to address these concerns, you're a smart guy you know where people are coming from so you can do it.

    This is the second time (that I am aware of) that you have taken a perfectly ordinary statement and decided it is some sort of insult.

    Can I suggest that next time you think something is insulting you check your dictionary first.

    Look at them, troll mother said. Look at my sons! You won't find more beautiful trolls on this side of the moon. (1915) by John Bauer
    A troll is a supernatural being in Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore. In origin, one of the meanings of the term troll was a negative synonym for a jötunn(plural jötnar), a being in Norse mythology, although the word was also used about witches, berserkers and various other evil magical figures. In Old Norse sources, beings described as trolls dwell in isolated rocks, mountains, or caves, live together in small family units, and are rarely helpful to human beings.
    Later, in Scandinavian folklore, trolls became beings in their own right, where they live far from human habitation, are not Christianized, and are considered dangerous to human beings. Depending on the region from which accounts of trolls stem, their appearance varies greatly; trolls may be ugly and slow-witted or look and behave exactly like human beings, with no particularly grotesque characteristic about them. One of the most famous elements of Scandinavian folklore, .

    Pandora (1861), by Pierre Loison (1816–1886)


    According to the myth, Pandora opened "Pandora's box" (see below),

    How without forbidding self reference
    do you show that 3 does not follow?

    1 sentence 1 is not true
    2 sentence 1 = "sentence 1 is not true"

    3 sentence 1 is true




    Key signature indicating the key of Cmajor or A minor.
    In music theory, the key of a piece usually refers to the tonic note and chord, which gives a subjective sense of arrival and rest.The methods by which the key is established for a particular piece are not easy to explain; however, the chords most often used in a piece in a particular key are those containing the notes in the corresponding scale, and conventional progressions of these chords, particularly cadences, serve to orient the listener around the tonic.
    The key signature is not a reliable guide to the key of a written piece.
    A key relationship is the relationship between keys, measured by common tones and nearness on the circle of fifths.

    Edit: Please dont repeat yourself, you were understood the first time.

    A question for the administrator:

    Given this self confessed troll actually boasts about trolling,

    Why isn't he banned?

    I don't feel kind, warm, friendly or welcoming to trolls and cranks.

    If kind, warm, friendly and welcoming is what you're looking for, I'm sure there are many touchy-feelie web sites where you will feel validated.

    I'm going to lock this thread. I don't think it's a good idea to have a thread where members criticize and complain about one another. If you have a complaint about a member, report it by clicking the report post button.
