I have and I did in the latest discussion thread, Joseph. At the time of my last posts Oryx hadn't joined that debate.

 

The question remains as to why we have to argue with non-feminists here at all. Atheist Nexus won't allow god-botherers to join because the purpose of the site if for atheists to discuss atheist issues. Similarly one would expect a feminist group to be for feminists to discuss feminist issues. If I want piles of irritating patriarchal garbage I have the rest of the Internet and the analogue world for that.

@EvilWombatQueen

  • Damn the trolls and their weak and easily disprovable arguments!

Then make the arguments and disprove him.  Oryx was the only one fighting back, and he sucks at it.  Don't hide behind admin controls.  Just beat him, if it's so easily done.

Pamela, pay attention.... two guys were trolling, then one guy said he wasn't, then I said 1 troll and 1 troll supporter. According to your history you joined in September 09 and you've posted a grand total of ONCE to the group. The only way you could think I was talking about you... is if tend to think that generally. I'm sorry you had a shitty experience with men. It's one of the reasons we ought to be free to talk amongst ourselves without being harassed by mythers who think feminism ought not to be.

TNT666,

Have I been promoted to "troll suppporter" or are you accusing someone else? 

And really how can someone have power over you in an online forum??!!  Are we women SO fucking defenseless we need protection from WORDS now??  Sorry, I'm just NOT that much of a victim.  I've been raped twice and had a guy try to kill me once, not to mention countless beatings over my life.  I'll be damned if I'm going to whine over some guy in a fucking forum having power over me by TALKING.  You girls have fun, I'm going to go find some adult women to chat with.

I don't see any evidence of trolling in recent discussions. All the posts have been relevant to the topic in the last 12 hours. Let's not go down the road of trying to silence people just because they make contentious statements. I realise there's often a fine distinction between trolling and expressing challenging opinions, but I don't want to lose the latter just to eliminate the former.

I've been looking on the internet to see if I can find out who the administrator is.  So far I know he goes by Brother Richard and he has a site called Life Without Faith.  I'm going back to the site to see if I can find an email or some other way to reach him.

My apologies. It was me who fed the troll this time around. Damn the trolls and their weak and easily disprovable arguments! I take it there's no way to get anyone promoted to moderator within the group?

I know a few people over the last couple of years who left this group because of constant trolling here. It's not a new phenomenon. Maybe you're right and a new group is the best solution, provided the new group can be moderated to the standard we need.
Comment by sehkmet on February 28, 2011 at 3:33am
Sandy, I've been on the boards and the strategy of calling out and ignoring trolls doesn't seem to be working too well.  According to the article in the thread about trolling, ignoring trolls doesn't seem to work.  Groups don't seem able to maintain the discipline it takes to ignore trolls.  A troll's main purpose is to goad someone into responding.  Given any group there is always someone who is easily baited into an argument.  Then the troll does what ever is necessary to inflame and enlarge the dispute.  We really need a moderator to put a lid on this.
Comment by SecretWombat on February 27, 2011 at 11:39pm
I agree with Sandy. Forming another group only for feminist and feminist allies is problematic. Some people self-identify as feminists even when they're not feminist by anyone else's standards. Unless you make it secret and invite-only the trolls would just follow us.
Comment by Sandy on February 27, 2011 at 11:15pm

Before we go down that route, let's just try getting some discussions going and ignoring the fucker if he tries to derail them. Or, for that matter, if anyone tries to derail they should be called out straight away or ignored. And if we see anyone getting sucked in to debating dead ends, we should call their attention to it.

There has to be an alternative to starting a new group just because one poster wants to wind people up. I don't know exactly what goes on in a Troll's head, but I imagine getting a whole group to migrate earns BIG POINTS. I, for one, don't want to give him the satisfaction.
