I agree that you are not overstating the problem, @Malkazoid . I did not read the interaction between a known malicious actor and @Emily Barnett , but I do know how very tempting it can be to get drawn into conversation with this sort of person. (I say "person," but these malicious trolls are hopefully only caricatures of their real-life counterparts.) It's sad that people who are unhappy with the system would choose to destroy it rather than work to make it a better place. I think it's fair...

Emily, I took the highest road I could. In response to someone who has said openly his 'thing' is to troll, you responded to his flattery by writing one of the longest comments you have written on the Beta - perhaps THE longest . It might be the longest comment anyone has made on a post so far. It doesn't all fit on my laptop screen! And it was entirely sympathetic to him, and referred to my civic sense as tacky and arrogant. I could have responded in kind, but I didn't. Instead, I tried to...

At @Malkazoid your crusade to exterminate a troll (righteously or not) has no baring on my response. It is unfortunate that you think so little of me, as to assume that at 50 years of age, that I lack so little confidence that a would fall prey to silly compliment. I assure you I am no silly-nilly girl whom blushes at attention, and loses all her convictions. I am here to tell you quite the contrary. I make up my own mind about things. As for the trolling accusations on this person. I have...

it isn't his alone . of course it is all of ours. But right now he is the only one making posts on beta, appealing to people change niche votes. The rest of us seem quite content with using the forums that are a given to us. Before beta, we had no assurances that the system would work. so there was a more urgent nature to make sure niches were not redundant. But that isn't the case now. He is deciding how he thinks things should be and then making posts to try and pursude. Just leave it in...

@Malkazoid you are just too cool for school. You have it all figured out. All the time. In the beginning I found you to be interesting and community minded, but lately, it seems more meddlesome and controlling. And today downright manipulative.. there are two people that I have ever stated that i am a fan of on this platform. neither of them are you. nor this Gage that i have had one encounter with. I don't have to justify the length of my comments to you or anybody on here. I don't have a...

But that's the thing. It is his platform. And yours. And mine. It belongs to all of us. If you don't have time for housekeeping right now, that's fine. Real Life is the priority. But please don't fault those of us who are trying to keep other people from trashing the place while you're not around. Some of us are trying to turn this into a place where we can eventually make a living, so defending it IS important to us.

you cannot even see that my comment had nothing to do with the appeal on the blog niche. But that your post was not a very good post. You didn't offer anything but tribunal names and links. That isn't what the other content looks like that is posted to Narrative disputes, so stop making excuses, that this is exactly what the niche is for. You talked at length for the quality of content to be high and this post didn't cut the mustard, at all, in my opinion. Not from you, who talked so much...

@Emily Barnett I don't need to quote your whole post, but @Malkazoid isn't the only one using the community niche to campaign for votes one way or another. As you've stated yourself, you've been busy with RL things, so you may not have noticed. Sometimes he is the first one to post about an issue that I or someone else would have posted about eventually, but I think that's a time zone thing. He's awake first. Those of us who have been targeted for harassment by our current trolls are...

Agree with @Malkazoid that this kind of discussions is part of what some users want. And that's why I'm staying prudent engaging with them on Narrative. My opinion and my way. I'm one of those attacked by the owner of five niches - not just by trolling but with insults and menaces, and then by mean of several fake accounts -, just for asking collaboration in fixing the name and description of a niche - a niche that needs fixing, as recognized by the Tribunal -, so I'm maybe more concerned...

So if we're going to be constructive, Emily, how do you define the difference between meddling and civic duty, when the platform specifically asks us to figure out together how niches work, how they should be described and to appeal them if we feel they pose a problem for the platform. If you aren't holding a grudge and you just think I meddle too much, tell me how to engage the community at large (not just the handful of people who show up of their own accord to discuss these things on the...

This is a long and unfortunate thread. I won't take sides. I did not read the thread it relates to. I don't think my opinion on this topic will help the community as a whole in anyway right now. I'll only recommend in the future to try and have these sensitive discussions in private, as it will have far less bad outcome. Please don't reply explaining who might have caused this, as I am not here judging that, and I won't reply to it. I'm suggesting this for the future. Everyone commenting...

Yes - I tried privately. Emily was so enraged that though she initiated the private discussion, she also stormed out of it a few minutes later. She wasn't there to try to patch things up, just to rage at me. I accepted the communication even though it was 3am here... so believe me, I tried. But yes - don't respond, and don't choose sides - you are right, it would accomplish nothing.

Troll awareness week

Malkazoid ·
Hello all, I wanted to bring up a couple of things here, rather than on the platform, so as not to feed the rep of one of our trolls. 1) Trolls like conflict. Their game is to upset, and cause chaos and division. They delight in it. 2) Narrative is uniquely vulnerable to this because so much of it is designed to be community driven. Especially at this early stage when moderation is not in place. 3) Both of the trolls, Gage (@default), and D.K (@Ethereum) are intelligent and have been running...

And that's enough bickering for today, thanks.
