Are we being visited by the SAME childish idiot every week, or are there lots of childish idiots that come to Fluther to show their immaturity?

Asked by elbanditoroso (25830points) 1 month ago

You know who I mean – the one who uploads obscene avatars and has nothing to contribute but his utter stupidity.

Given he keeps targeting the same questions, and with the same puerile humor, I posit it is the same troll.

Makes me wonder if his internet address could be blocked.

canidmajor's avatar

Same person, there are a few markers of language and style that define him.
And here he comes now.

LadyMarissa's avatar

I fear that there is an entire village of them!!!

That last response kind of identified him, a regular user who obviously isn’t satisfied with slamming Fluther in his regular account. Gotta wonder how he keeps making accounts without the staff here being able to block him.

elbanditoroso's avatar

Dang, the moderators got to those responses too quickly, I couldn’t even read the message that @canidmajor referred to.

zenvelo's avatar

He was also in the chat room.

It’s currently school break. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a kid with too much time in their hands.

[Mod says] Yes, it’s likely that we’ve been dealing with a returning troll for the last few weeks. There is no evidence to suggest this person is a disgruntled user. We get a lot of random trolls like this, though they are often less obvious about their goals. Thanks for all the flags, and remember: trolls feed on conflict. It’s easy to starve them.

Patty_Melt's avatar

I’m not convinced it’s a him.

ucme's avatar

Every week?
Pish & tosh…i’m here almost every day ;-}

LadyMarissa's avatar

@longgone is correct. Trolls crave attention & to ignore is as annoying to them as their games are to us. Ignore & flag. The mods will handle it from there.

Just remember that every time you call them a troll, they are sitting there jacking or jilling (depending on the gender). I don’t know about you; but, I have NO desire to create their orgasm…Ignoring deflates their will to live!!!

His NSFW image can still be found on search.

Demosthenes's avatar

This is the same guy who posted a dickish comment on one of my questions, so I called him out on it at which point he flies off the handle and is banned. Shortly after that he was returning every week and sending me rude PMs and spamming many of my questions (as well as others).

Kardamom's avatar

Missed him by that much.

Is this the same person who has added spam to a whole bunch of long lost Qs?

Or is the recent spam problem a separate problem?

Brian1946's avatar

@Kardamom

“Is this the same person who has added spam to a whole bunch of long lost Qs?”

I’m fairly sure that it isn’t.

It usually posts a puerile reply that insults the OP; its avatar usually displays male genitalia; and its user name usually refers to an activity involving its avatar.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Demosthenes I saw a moderated response on my depression thread. It could be him. If so I’m glad I didn’t get to see it.

zenvelo's avatar

One of the mods explained that when they do a mass removal of responses from one bad Apple, it flags all the moderated responses as Spam. So when he posts inane comments on fifteen threads and then gets booted, all the inane comments are marked as spam.

Patty_Melt's avatar

I owe a small debt to spammers. Aside from the jokes some of us enjoy posting with them, they tend to bring up old threads I’m glad of so I can stop following some of them.

Kardamom's avatar

I guess I was lucky that I have not seen any of this particular troll. I have only seen a bunch of long lost Q’s hit with Spam.

MrGrimm888's avatar

Was this the user asking about why women didn’t like men’s bodies?...

janbb's avatar

No – this is the dick guy who’s really nasty.

MrGrimm888's avatar

I thought it was the same guy…. Guess it doesn’t matter…

Patty_Melt's avatar

They use obscene profile pictures, and hop from thread to thread trying hard to pick a fight, and then gush filthy language. It is mostly obscenities and entirely childish.
My take on it is someone desires the attention of one or all of the mods.
Sometimes they flat say, “I’m that one.”

ucme's avatar

I’ve not actually seen this prick, but he/she sounds like they dwell in mommy’s basement & masturbate over photos of geese in flight.

jca2's avatar

I actually thought some of his (or hers) responses were funny. I think of a troll like that, who returns repeatedly to set up new profiles, etc., as someone who must really have zero life if they have all that free time.

Patty_Melt's avatar

I never saw anything funny. We must be discussing two different trolls.

jca2's avatar

@Patty_Melt: I think we’re discussing the same troll. Some of the responses were tongue in cheek which to me, was funny.

Patty_Melt's avatar

All I saw was body part smut. If there was anything funny it was gone before I saw any of it.

janbb's avatar

Body part avatars and stupid put downs of Fluther. A real lowlife troll.

Patty_Melt's avatar

So then, there you are.
I’m an enemy because I’m not entertained by potty mouth.
You can have it.

canidmajor's avatar

You are declaring yourself an “enemy” simply because someone doesn’t agree with you?
Yikes.

MrGrimm888's avatar

So… Basically, I shouldn’t go forward with changing my avatar to a penis?...~

canidmajor's avatar

Only if it’s a very attractive penis.

jca2's avatar

@Patty_Melt: Because I thought some posts were funny and you didn’t think they were funny, that makes us enemies? Or am I misunderstanding?

ARE_you_kidding_me's avatar

@canidmajor Dicks can be attractive?

Stache's avatar

I’m surprised you are playing the victim @Pattyhamberder. It’s not like you.

MrGrimm888's avatar

Patty is NO victim. She’s one of our toughest jellies…:)

Mimishu1995's avatar

I haven’t seen any of the responses, but if the latest “sex with daughter” thread belonged to him, then I don’t find anything funny about it.

janbb's avatar

So tired of it.

Brian1946's avatar

Good riddance to imanuisance.

janbb's avatar

And another one has popped up. If this problem isn’t solved, I’ll be lurking only for a while. Be well all.

Demosthenes's avatar

Can’t an IP ban be done? Or if this joker is using a proxy to change his IP, maybe this site needs to implement a policy where new users need to be personally approved by a mod. I’m a member of a couple small forums that do that.

ARE_you_kidding_me's avatar

@Demosthenes the little twit makes it so obvious I don’t think it’s even necessary.

longgone's avatar

[Mod says]

@Demosthenes “Can’t an IP ban be done?”

Yes, we’ve banned the IP addresses. They seem to be using a proxy.

That would be a good policy for trolls. Unfortunate for legitimate new users though, most of whom would probably move on quickly if they can’t ask questions without fuss. Also, there’s the general issue of Ben not being around much.

I might have an idea that would at least make this guy’s visits less obvious. Fingers crossed.

ZEPHYRA's avatar

Has he gone now? Can I look now?

ucme's avatar

The, ahem…member, has been removed.

He was back today if you hadn’t noticed.

MrGrimm888's avatar

All I ever see, is a bunch of deleted spam…

ucme's avatar

Seems they are a persistent bugger motivated by, well, hate I guess.
Really should be tougher security at the gate, appears any old riff-raff gets through.

MrGrimm888's avatar

Riff-raff, is inevitable in any community.

ucme's avatar

Indeed, but a multiple repeat offender?
I mean c’mon, tighten up.

MrGrimm888's avatar

Either the Mods will stop them, or this person will lose interest…

ucme's avatar

Well, if folks keep asking questions about them, giving them some degree of attention, they probably won’t give up…so step up & get rid.
