    Please, if you must respond to the trolls...

    If you must respond to the trolls, please use the New Post button in stead of the reply to this post button...Many of us have them on ignore and the process is defeated by the duplication of the posts in your response. Besides why would you want to duplicate their senseless drivel?

    You just read my mine. If everyone would put the trolls on ignore, they would vanish because of lack of attention.

    I don't believe in ignoring trolls.  I believe in beating them to death with a hammer.  Ignoring trolls is like sneaking out the back door of your house while some punk kids trash it.  I'm grabbing a tire iron and dealing with the situation.

    Please do so with the New post button so we don't have to see their $hit. Always remember, they would not be here unless they weren't crying out for attention. You in doing so give them what they want, which means you are getting played. They win. The only way you win is to ignore. You can understand that?

    Ummm....hows that working out? You are doing exactly what they want, and simply feeding them so they come back for more. This isn't rocket science. No attention = buh-bye.

    I think it's best to just ignore them. They are here only to have us respond to them aka feeding them. If they were ignored by all they would be gone, it wouldn't be any fun for them. I like the idea of the new post but putting them on ignore the minute they show up is the best thing to do IMO. Fighting back with them ruins the threads.

    "Fighting back with them ruins the threads."

    exactly and makes the board dominated with mostly that.

    Which is exactly why I rarely post here anymore...

    I don't use any other boards because I have grown accustomed to this one, but it's becoming almost impossible to discuss the Patriots here. Hitting "ignore" is the best way to get rid of the trolls. Don't feed them and they will look for food elsewhere (on another forum).

    Hopefully with the season starting it will lead to more football talk. Babe got banned today so that should cut out some of the nonsense until he comes back under a new handle. I like this forum too, unlike ESPN and others that are 95% trolls.

    I sure hope so. The offseason can be rough, but I have never seen the board this bad. It's an easy fix if people would just ignore the trolls instead of argue like school children.

    magic, this was exactly my concern. those that want to talk football are driven away, while those that like to attack posters, fight, etc dominate the threads.
    we need those who like to discuss with each other deciding to stay (and not replying to the belligerent and the pugnacious).

    Perhaps when (and they will) the Pats start beating the bejesus out of teams some of the trolls will go away.  However, there'll always be the "one-and-done" trolls, for instance - a person who never posts until we're getting ready to play their team.  Also, what exactly is a "troll?"  I mean - we have several Pats fans that constantly bicker with each other and thus dominate post topics.  And sometimes, when I'm feeling a little mischieveous, I like stabbing back at trolls just for fun.  But overall I agree with your point - lots of dumb stuff gets brought into this board - but I don't think there's a panacea for it.

    Re: Please, if you must respond to the trolls...

    I only have trolls like jetsmangione and manningrules on ignore. 

    If you're a fan of another team and spend as much time as these (kids?) here then I'm sure they're not worth my time.

    I know we'll get the one and doners that will show up before each weeks opponent but they're usually gone after their team gets their *sses handed to them.

    What I don't get is the Pats fans on here that just can't tolerate someone else's opinion or someone disagreeing with them.  It's childish.

    I have no problem with fans making constructive critisisome's of the team, players or coach.  If I don't agree with them I am not going to resort to name calling.  Again, childish.
