Ok, for about the zillionth time, someone posted this (or a variation of this).
[quote]How is that any different from AIDS infested homos who murdered tens of thousands?
Where is the webmaster? I've about had it here. The word "eff-em-in-ite" is taboo, though it is a perfectly fine word. Yet, these gay-bashing hate-filled assholes are allowed to shit on us here.
My renewal for my $18 is coming up soon. I hate to leave but someone needs to do something about these freaks ruining this site.

Indeed. There's also that idiot "mos" troll who just keeps popping up.
|by Dustin||reply 1||01/16/2013|
Amusing that the troll is trolling the gay boards,. You know their inner demons are fighting their same sex attractions, and acting out by being deliberately cruel to those he fears to be.
|by Dustin||reply 2||01/16/2013|
Very active today. Several freepers are.
But I think they like it when they think they get to you. That's the point, isn't it?
Slap them or ignore them but don't expect them to go away when they get obvious results.
Email the webmaster with complaints.

"My renewal for my $18 is coming up soon."
R1 (or R anyone), is this $18 thing for real? I wasn't sure if it was some kind of virusy something-something. I've never had a popup like that pop up like that on a forum.
I.e., it's safe to give them my CC#?
|by Dustin||reply 4||01/16/2013|
Just F&F them and ignore. It's the best way to deal with attention seeing trolls.
|by Dustin||reply 5||01/16/2013|
Does ff-ing do any good? They don't seem to get banned, they're here every day.
|by Dustin||reply 6||01/16/2013|
I cannot believe the number of people here who condone racism and racist trolls.
Were you raised by wolves?
The only possible response to racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-semitism, etc. is to vigorously, openly oppose it. You don't just let it pass or make excuses for it. What the fuck is wrong with you people?
|by Dustin||reply 11||01/16/2013|
Then you have no moral compass, R12.
|by Dustin||reply 13||01/16/2013|
And these aren't thoughts, but expressions.

Are you really this slow?
What evidence is there that F&F does anything?
What evidence is there that we have a webmaster at all?

They are hurting people, R15.

After troll-darring some of them in the past, it is clear that some of them are misogynist freepers who probably found this place doing a google search. It sucks that they feel welcome here, but I guess it's because they think they have found others who share their views.
|by Dustin||reply 21||01/16/2013|
I call out those hypocrites, R23.

Wrong. That is all pointless bitchery.
"AIDS infested homos" on a gay board is trolling.

No kidding. It's sickening sometimes.

[quote] Yes they're annoying. But even more annoying are the so-called liberals like OP who demand free speech be censored.
the First Amendment guarantees free speech without censorship or interference from the government, Einstein.
Free speech is neither protected nor guaranteed on an internet message board run by a non-governmental entity.
But thanks for playing.
|by Dustin||reply 28||01/16/2013|
I hate the AIDS/'mos troll(s), too. And wonder why they are not banned.
|by Dustin||reply 31||01/16/2013|
Free speech does not equal "I have the right to insult anyone I want without consequence".

Anti-gay crap on a gay board is just stupid.

"Liberals are the most totalitarian people you can come across, especially when their lazy, self-flattering presumption of goodness kicks in, so that anyone who disputes their platitudes is ipso facto evil and deserves the guillotine."
Yeah, except for stupid-ass creationists, birthers, Donald Trumop worshippers, tax-cut fetishists, the 'mos troll and your stupid self.
|by Dustin||reply 38||01/16/2013|
I think many of them are insecure straight women trolling for someone (the gays) to kick around, and justify it by feigning offense at some posts. r23 is an example. Check the "tit for tat homos" sign-off. So r23, do you go to black boards and make racist statements? No, because you prefer an easier target.
|by Dustin||reply 40||01/16/2013|
I think most of the troll are straight white males.
|by Dustin||reply 42||01/16/2013|
There are trolls -- probably straight females -- who are sort of needy, chiding and irritating. And then there are those who hate gay people and accuse them of having a stigmatized disease. These are probably male.

Everyone who makes a nasty comment isn't a freeper. Nor is everyone who disagrees with the general thinking here. I've been on this site for years and the few times I've not agreed 100% with something, I've been called various names, including freeper. To my other point, there are assholes within the community, as well. These comments could be coming from there, rather than an outside source.

I prefer to refer to it as an infestatio, not invasion.
They're about as welcome as vermin.

All you have to do is check your troll-dar and you can see who is again.

I've been F&Fing the troll for days OP, but it does no good.
However, it's just as bad as the endless Anne Hathaway and Jody threads; but a bit more nasty. Wish we could ban all of them. If, in fact, they're different people.

I'm all for free speech but shouldn't there be limits to angry words of hate?
|by Dustin||reply 55||01/17/2013|
No R8, if someone is posting these ridiculous opinions the proper response is not to derail the thread in order to given them attention for their ridiculous inflammatory opinions. That is absolute terrible advice.
The best course of action is just to ignore them.
|by Dustin||reply 56||01/17/2013|
Trolldar shows that the two of the most prolific freepers, the 'mos troll and a self-described "hard-core conservative", appear to be straight males. Don't know their race and don't care.
|by Dustin||reply 57||01/17/2013|

They are not straight. They may say they are, but we know the truth.
|by Dustin||reply 58||01/17/2013|
I think the frau invasion is worse than the freeper invasion tbh. I just laugh off the brainwashed freepers, but the idiots faus who come here to defend male celebrities are tiresome.. especially if it's a celebrity speculated to be gay. You can be sure said thread will be infested by fraus screaming "HE'S NOT GAY!!! HE'S STRAIGHT!!! HE LIKES THE PUSSY!!!" I'm sick of it. This website has gone downhill fast. At least 50 % of the people on the frau thread said they're women. I wonder how many women really have started to use Datalounge, I think there's 60 % straight fraus here and 40 % gays. It's really sad. Why can't they just leave? This is a website supposed to be for GAY MEN. I can handle lesbians, but straight women are the worst.
|by Dustin||reply 59||01/17/2013|
Well how is it different?
|by Dustin||reply 60||01/17/2013|
we need to be able to delete posts we don't want to see. it would help if we had a webmaster who actually cared, but we obviously don't.
|by Dustin||reply 61||01/17/2013|
Oh, R61. There's a webmistress who cares, but it's mainly about obvious threats to site integrity - and posts such as yours that voice criticism.
See you in a month when the ban curse - maybe - wears off.
|by Dustin||reply 62||01/17/2013|
The difference is that thread contents now appear in a general Google search. This attracts traffic in the form of trolls who perform google searches on their celebrity and/or political obsessions.
It also attracts a lot of homo-curious "straight" men looking for gay info and get pissed off when they find it. It's safe to say that all of the straight men who post here or visit more than once fit into that category.
|by Dustin||reply 63||01/17/2013|
If the owners of the DL gave a shit they'd do a major overhaul of the site and give us the ability to flag posts to the point where if it gets x number of flags it's auto-deleted.
|by Dustin||reply 65||01/18/2013|
It seems to peak every 28 days. I'm just saying.
|by Dustin||reply 66||01/18/2013|
It would be interesting to learn to what extent some of the posts here are by Freepers trying to cause trouble versus those that are just people goofing around.
I've encountered a few vicious people on some of my polling threads, and while constructive criticism is absolutely fine, some of it tends to get personal and over the top and I'm not sure what's behind it.
|by Dustin||reply 68||01/18/2013|
When I first came here in 2003, the site worked the way in which R65 described.
|by Dustin||reply 72||01/18/2013|
r73, I think it is best to just ignore them. I was lurking in the African American thread and a couple of posts were obvious racist troll bait.
They were totally ignored. They stopped.
I do understand the OP's point about having a gay positive site without having to hear the faggot with AIDS bullshit, but I honestly don't think it's possible online anymore.
I do F&F the really offensive posts without commenting. I wonder how much good it does, but I figure it only takes a second to click it.
I hate it when an entire thread gets deleted because of it. I wish there was a way to zap the offending post without taking the thread down with it.

I hope this person at R51 was just attempting a joke. Comparing the "AIDs infected", "fags" and "mos" hate attacks to starting threads about Hathaway and Foster is absolutely moronic.
