Giant Freakin' Robot are your source?
Oh wait you're serious.
Can we just forbid Pubert from posting in Picard threads? I have nothing against dissent opinions but they just shit on it for the sake of shitting on it. They don’t contribute to the discussion at all, they don’t listen to anything we say. It is trolling.
I mean, the alternative is everyone can just ignore posts they don't like.
Banning people from a forum is a slippery slope. If it were that easy, there are certain other people I'd like to see gone from particular places.
But that's not going to happen. I'd rather just kick the shit out of them in an argument.
There are channels to go through with this sort of accusation...publicly accusing somebody of trolling is a no-no.
But ultimately, if you feel that somebody is trolling, the best thing to do is to not feed them.
Agreed. There's nothing I enjoy more than to prove to people on an internet bulletin board that they're wrong.
But they clearly don't care what any of you say.
Still doesn't mean the ideas are not worth discussing.
So if they don't care what we are saying why do you care what they are saying? I personally don't think shitting on a TV show is trolling. A TV show isn't a person or group of people, so its feelings can't be hurt. And like Fireproof said, even if someone is just shitting on a TV show just for the sake of shitting on it, that doesn't mean they won't ever bring up a point worthy of discussion.
Pubert's a boy's name.
I don't bother with Pubert. I'm talking about in general. But I handle him in particular in my own way: I don't take anything he says seriously.
I do care what they are saying. I come to this BBS to have meaningful discussions about Star Trek with intelligent, civilized people, not to listen to idiotic complaints made by people who come here to purposely complain. There's a difference between bringing up legitimate criticism and just repeating the same crap over and over even when it has proven to be incorrect on numerous occasions, because they are trying to provoke a certain response.
The “ignore” function of the forum is also very helpful. To me, at least.
It can be fun watching a meltdown. Unless you're near a nuclear power plant.
Three Mile Island, three times the fun!
And Pripyat had its own amusement park.
Show of hands, kids: who wants to go to the theme park!
Okay, both kids want to go.
Pubert is a character from the original addams family comic strip and later addams family values movie. Not many people here seem to know that. I'm thinking of changing my onscreen name here to something cooler.
I'm sure we can suggest some appropriate username options for you...
Go with Altaira's Cordwainer.
I'll take any suggestions you might have.
