Everyday i come onto these forums to waste a little time reading peoples posts and the word i think has killed anyone ever having a decent conversation is the word TROLL and the idea it brings to a conversation.
I remember maybe a few years back i would come on and read good posts and bad posts but people didn't just pass it off as trolling just because they believed something different and give some unintelligent response like "You have no idea what your talking about your just a troll" how does this advance the conversation? It doesn't incase your wondering.
I think i have figured out how we can stop these bad posts is to realize everyone is a Troll even myself. From time to time i think someone who says AoC is actually a good game and tries to tell you it has good points is missing a part of the brain, but i never say that because that would come off as me telling them they are a troll and i would be a troll posting that. The simple fix to end trolling is not posting something on those terms, because obviously it doesn't add to the conversation and both sides don't have to make a huge battle on who is right which kills the conversation as a whole, because after awile it isn't even about game it becomes about past posts or the reply they made about the post before. I'm not saying you can't disagree just don't make it so they seem stupid for liking something you don't or you seem stupid because your just being an *** after posting a bonehead response.
For those of who discredit me for this being my first post is a troll don't even make that argument i have visited this site for 6-7 years and i have given up on reading other peoples post because after the first few replies it turns into a personal battle. ( I ask you please don't take this as a personal attack because I don't mean it as one i hope you can tell me I'm wrong or right in a reasonable manner and not some troll post)
off-note - It was actually fun using this posting system
