I've probably had a computer and been online lonter than most of you. I got my first computer and went online in 1986.
I've played competitive backgammon almost daily since 1998 at yahoo. At one point, I even owned a backgammon league.
All that to say that I've dealt with more than my share of internet trolls and shills ... yeah, I even know the termonology for this idiotic phenomena!!
Being as A$$ when there are no eyes to look into seems to be quite easy. I consider these folks to be COWARDS and certainly not worth the time of good people.
In a chatroom, it's as easy as the "ignore this person" button. On forums, the moderator has the convenience of "delete" or at least "hide this message." It is the moderator's JOB to protect the owners!!
Holistic ATTACK is a bit different, given. The fiber of your faith is being attacked, the very cloth from which we have chosen to be made.
You need to learn to ignore these people instead of fueling their fire. They are pushing your buttons and wasting your important time! Cornith knows how to "push your buttons and watch you go like hell" TAKE THAT POWER AWAY FROM HIM!!! REFUSE TO 'GO LIKE HELL' FOR HIS PERSONAL ENJOYMENT OR PAYCHECK, if that be the case, which it certainly could be.
Think about it, ever watched a person argue with themself? They look like a blithering idiot to you?
Best advice: come up with some one-liners that just shut him and his shills DOWN ... "how much they pay you to say that?" and then don't respond to the idiocy that brings forth!!!
Best advice: stay off boards where the moderators aren't acitively protecting the integrity of holistics!!!!!!! The attack is probably not against you personally, but against what you believe in. A board that isn't on the same page, perhaps, should be one to avoid??
Best advice: Moderators in THIS private forum should not speak to the idiots, just hide the message, protect Tony and Luella from having to even see the crap so that they can move on. When there is attack taking place, you need to be checking here OFTEN!! If time restraints hender the frequenct visits, some of us do have to make a living!!, appoint more moderators.
