[WOLF] The Conservative
Level 56
I have mixed feelings. On one hand, we have been able to keep the trolls under control ( Kinda anyway ) but on the other, a lot of decent threads that we could have had some fun with have disappeared. And there's also that very real possibility that some idiot with a high level will turn troll himself or just start downvoting the threads of people he doesn't like. Thoughts?

It helps expose the lower quality trolls like Tabby (quick to jump on things, jokes are pretty repetitive, ect.) So thats something.

You uphold it by not punishing them nor kicking them out.

^I usually won't kick out anybody. I personally agree that some actions are excessive and I disagree with them. However I tend to use soft ways to tone down some overly radical speech.

No, OT was born by a shitposter, this threatens to ruin the ancient ways of the OT shitpost.

With people like Fissel around still intentionally spamming, I'm beginning to think that the forum will require a phase where anything remotely spammy or trolly will need to be buried. It will result in a lot of false-positives, yes, but if it ends up starving the trolls and spammers, it might be worth it. Eventually, once things calm down, OT might become healthy again and interesting conversations might be had once more.

I still stick by the idea of the signal-to-noise ratio as a very good way to decide what should be up/downvoted, but essentially what I'm saying is that I think there's currently just way too much noise being added on a daily basis, and that needs to be calibrated first, before you can start trying to cultivate signal again.

Creating about 900 of the same thread in 15 minutes would be considered spamming.
