It was an answer to this post from Franklin (with whom I was having a discussion)

If you've got a problem with it, report it to the Mods rather than trying to get your little army of trolls on board

Resistance is futile. The Clinic will assimilate you.

The simple answer is because I can't be on every day so the enforcement is very uneven. No more complicated than that. It would be great to have more mods.

Joachim is consistently post after post after post flaming half the clinic.

Every few hours he brings out another post portraying most of the clinic as deluded bitter loser internet trolls who have no understanding of life.

And as bro deal pointed out, few if any of these posts offer any arguments relevant to whatver thread or discussion they are thrown into. insulting others is the only purpose of most of them.

You certainly aren't on that list.

And those are just the posts from the last 2 days where the trolling was in the first 3 lines so it could be found by looking through his post history.

None of these posts make any argument. They are just flaming for the sake of flaming. I understand there are a lot of emotions in the clinic (and Joachim uses that as an excuse to hide most of his trolling anyway) but there has to be a limit.

Especially since this is a poster who has been banned before for similar behaviour.

edit: and these were just the posts where he insults everyone. i ignored the ones where the trolling was directed at individuals.

Wow.

You've just spent a load of time trawling through my posts when you could have just used the forum 'Ignore' feature.

Funny how accusations of trolling can only be made by one 'side' in Hitch world.

P.S that last post of mine that you quote, how many weeks ago was it from?

Hitch, just read the posts and ignore the silly girl, there is no way arguing with, do not feed it. Took me also some time but it is for the best, do not push the ignore button, just enjoy the blatant stupidity. But, be aware, she will put you on her 'ignore button'.

There is nothing better than to ignore by posting past as if they never posted no matter what they wrote, and I'm mainly talking about those @*$^&#+*&^%# and *^$%@^#@. Just read the username and decide there if the post is worthy.

I find it unusual that someone who has lurked on the forum for years as claimed, would suddenly choose to start posting, almost exclusively in the clinic, at a huge post rate (and that's including a short ban).

Really? You find that interesting? You must be a riveting at dinner parties.

Hmmm, yet you find the trolls in the clinic interesting enough to pump out 20 posts a day in there. Should've stuck with 'Sky pay me by the post'

Jumping feet first into the clinic with all the hallmarks of an established poster will always put people's backs up. It seems strange to me that you would go from reading and lurking to a very prolific poster in the most contentious threads, that's all.
