I think that, its been a few years already that "trolling" has become kind of a fashion, lots of internet random kids, and not so kids, try to emulate the so called troll, but they are quite confused, or unable to achieve that, and they just "do the clown", kids with low self esteem, needed of attention 'aka' whoreattentions, you see lots of those: "hey how cool am i did you see what i just said?... huh? hello? someone, PLEASE LOL AT MY JOKE OR I'LL KILL MYSELF..."., read lame/wannabe FC's, who ppl endup lauging at stupid jokes just because to earn their grace, I've seen tons of these on carebear Incursion HQ fleets...


One thing is trolling, another thing is mocking and ending up the phrase with an "xD", this emote seems to "take out iron" of the harsh random mocking prhase the kid just dropped, no fun at all.

Real trolling is harmless, fun for the one who said it, fun for the spectators, and INOFENSIVE for the one that received it, I don't say fun for this last dude because, even more on the internet, there are tons of grown egos individuals with thin skin unable to handle some REAL trolling, as I already said, one thing is stupid mocking, another is oldskool good fashioned trolling.

you sir/madam are in an apptly named guild, your nearly as funny as your guilds namesake. ligten up.

i tell you what im wondering is did ccp guard make his own forum avitar or was it sabotaged by his mates. either way great stuff.

someone edited my mains real avitar, shaved its head from the angle you don't see. no wonder why someone asked me the other day if i'd used my aurum and that i should buy my avitar some clothes with it Pirate now that is funny. playing around with skillpoints however is just nasty trolling. not funny.

Can you stop being humorless and condescending? Can you do that for me? When you start a grrGoons thread saying things that get posted and said about three times a week, every week, people naturally aren't going to take you seriously.

Sorry if I'm not "calm" enough for you. I've cancelled my accounts and I really don't care how I come across anymore.

The aim of the High is to remain where they are. The aim of the Middle is to change places with the High. The aim of the Low, when they have an aim—for it is an abiding characteristic of the Low that they are too much crushed by drudgery to be more than intermittently conscious of anything outside their daily lives—is to abolish all distinctions and create a society in which all men shall be equal.
The goons will fall as all powergroupings fall.
They will be replaced by a powergroup virtually indistinguishable from them.
Miners and high sec carebears will remain the lowest of the low.

In the real world it is the bankers that are trolling us http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqvKjsIxT_8

Money at its root is a form of rationing. When the richest 85 people have as much wealth as the poorest 3.5 billion (50% of humanity) it is clear where the source of poverty is. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jan/20/trickle-down-economics-broken-promise-richest-85

If by establishment you mean CSM, it has happened, now and again. Most times they are sidelined or sideline themsleves (see Darius III)

Other times they realize that it is *work* and step away before they might even get elected (or worse, loser horribly) - see James315

Now this is not to say that we on the CSM8 are above trolling, far from it. We are tempted to do so just like the rest of you but we prefer it on a higher level. We work and troll now and again as opposed to troll and don't work at all.

or so we tell you

nda and all

You are being haunted by the memories of the hokey jokes your 6th grade science teacher used to tell.

The gaming world has changed.... and it isn't "trolling" you're getting "trolled" by. -

-- It's just a different type of numskull - people who like making cringe worthy Puns and maybe the guys who play on the third squad of amature rugby clubs who drop trowsers in a bar while singing bawdy drinking songs.

Beware the "snide-elite" of gaming ... you are being over run by Hokey Science teachers and Nutty Overweight Rugby players -- your tears are delicious..even if they are unintended byproducts of people just having social fun instead of sitting on the sofa watching a night time romance-drama with their wives.

hmmm... I like that. Needs a closer rhyme like:

...

Put a shiptoast in his thread
clicked the button, now it's read.
Mama, the thread had just begun
But now I've gone and trolled it all away

Mama, oooh...
Didn't post to make you cry
If I get banned again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

This is Eve - it was established by Trolls and considering recent developer conduct, they decided a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see them through.

Accordingly, your thread title doesn't make any sense.



I vote Large Collidable Object as EVE's emissary to other games. She/he is the perfect example of EVE culture and is much better at representing the masses than the CSM.

What do we do about The grrGoon Problem


Easy, whenever any corp or alliance exceeds 666 members, the corp or alliance is instantly disbanded, all the members podded, abd all the assests of the corp and or alliance, and its members, are randomly distributed in blue cans around all the major trade hubs. That would keep things hopping.
