Do you ever think about commenting on a DL thread, but...

...you know if you comment, you'll be berated, sacrificed, made out to be a fool, etc? The fun has disappeared from this forum. Sure, I know the whole MO is to be bitchy, snarky, etc. But people--I assume mostly us gay guys--are being ridiculously nasty with one another. And I'm not speaking of trolls, or , or a's hundreds of sock account trolls. I'm speaking of someone making a well-intentioned comment on a thread, and getting pummelled just for the sake of being mean. It takes the fun out of the forum. I'll leave it at that.

Yes.

by Now you can all pummel me for posting this well-intentioned threadreply 1July 5, 2021 3:36 PM

Yes. Before I type anything on a forum I ask myself "how much time and effort am I willing to expend elaborating, explaining, and rebutting?"

I don't have a lot of posting history.

On occasion though, when I have an established fact to share I'll type or paste it in, submit, then abandon the thread. Somebody MIGHT see it among the thrashing, berating, and pummelling, and support it. That's happened before.

If it's happening to you frequently and for no reason, you're probably being followed around by one of our psychos. You'll see these crazies in threads just randomly cunting it up to someone who didn't do anything wrong. They often post multiple times, trying to get attention, and if they don't get it, they show up with a second account, then a third.

The other day someone did that to me, freaked out on me in a very long reply that didn't make sense. I honestly thought it was something posted accidentally in the wrong thread at first. Then he used other accounts to reply to himself as if he had a fan club, saying "You're so funny! Marry me! Big kisses to you!" It was a little creepy.

In my case r19 it was because he'd accidentally outed himself. He called me "slovenly" with his first account and then later said "that's why I called you slovenly" with a second account. That happens every so often with people who have multiple accounts, they forget which account said what.

Oh, just don't worry about them, OP. I get called all sorts of things and I just don't care. I even had one guy following me around thread to thread calling me a pedo, for some reason. I just put him on ignore.

Not just on DL...

by Now you can all pummel me for posting this well-intentioned threadreply 29July 5, 2021 4:57 PM

It's an anonymous message board. I've gotten pummeled a couple of times here, but it didn't really bother me. I don't know the people pummeling me, and they don't know me, so who cares?

I'll occasionally put someone on ignore, but usually because they are posting countless, annoying diatribes about something, like their irrational hatred for Meghan Markle, incessantly defending men showing their dicks to women in the locker room, or those fucking cats in the collapsed Miami condo unit. I don't think I've had to put someone on ignore for being rude to me, but if it got on my nerves enough, I'd just do that and be done with it.

DL isn't real life, OP.

It's a sincerity issue for me. Some posts are blatantly made-up and deserve lampooning. Others are in a gray area for me: How do you read something like "It's My Birthday and No One Remembered?" Or "I Want to pay for my funeral in advance because I have no one to look after it." At one level, these elicit sympathy and pathos; at another level they may be false, disingenuous. So err on the side of kindness in such situations.

And don't let a cunt get to you. Post and be damned. Don't care about getting likes or responses. Just enjoy the free-for-all.

I have been posting for decades. Of course, one expects to get flamed. Mostly positive overall. Never hesitated.

by Now you can all pummel me for posting this well-intentioned threadreply 43July 5, 2021 7:53 PM

The first time I ever posted on DL I was flamed almost immediately. I thought I'd made a rational, insightful comment, but the subsequent 3 or 4 replies were full of vitriol.

DL, despite being a den of vipers much of the time, has taught me to apply a higher level of critical thinking before I post. However, it is DL, and it's so easy to just let go of one's reason and post on emotions alone. And, besides that, no matter how carefully you attempt to articulate something, someone somewhere will be lying in wait to ambush you, especially on threads that seem to me, on a relatively sophisticated plane of discourse.

There are some incredibly intelligent people (and some very stupid ones, too) here whom I could never hold a candle to, and sometimes I'm so envious of them and their capacity to comprehend, analyze, and retain massive amounts of information. But, I am blessed with creative genes, so I can't complain, as that is what helps to keep me sane.

I truly believe that the biggest DL assholes are timid and scared creatures in real life and they come here to blow off steam and pound their chests. Ironically, I think that I’m nicer on DL than I am in real life. There’s that….

by Now you can all pummel me for posting this well-intentioned threadreply 46July 5, 2021 8:50 PM

Dear OP,

if you care about anonymous trolls attacking you on an anonymous message board, I don't think the internet is the right place for you anymore.

I share my opinion about things I care about. I don't engage too much with trolls unless I can use their trolling as an excuse to elaborate further.

Think of it this way: It's like a debate club. You present your argument and the trolls, well, deliver theirs. There is no way the trolls win any debate with their trolling. So you win and they look like the total losers they are.

by Now you can all pummel me for posting this well-intentioned threadreply 47July 5, 2021 8:53 PM

[quote]if you care about anonymous trolls attacking you on an anonymous message board, I don't think the internet is the right place for you anymore.

A lot of DLers say this because they come here very specifically to scream slurs and abuse and threats at people, because they're miserable and want to spread that misery.

No one has to take it, and I don't trust anyone who says you DO. It's not normal to have Matt following you around an anonymous board calling you racist slurs, or a troll pretending to be an LSA regular repeatedly calling you homophobic names. It's not normal for groups of homophobic trolls to take up residence on a gay board and harass the regulars, and it's REALLY not normal for the regulars to just take it because they somehow don't know how to recognize trolls, or they think they're defending free speech by allowing it, or they don't have the balls to stand up for themselves. That's pathological behavior.

Encouraging people to continue to never stand up for themselves because "if you don't like being called slurs, then log off the internet forever" is incredibly messed up. Besides, the "if you don't like it then leave" ethos cuts both ways. You don't like that OP said the racist, homophobic filth on here makes DL less fun? Then leave. Take your own advice.

by Now you can all pummel me for posting this well-intentioned threadreply 48July 5, 2021 10:15 PM

When I first came here I used to get quite upset by the attacks. Now they don't bother me and in fact rarely happen. I know how to play it, that's why. The gurls can smell it when you're vulnerable.

r48,

the point is that you shouldn't let any troll get under your skin and ruin your time at DL. You set a troll like Matt on ignore immediately. All of his IDs whack-a-mole style.

I don't come to DL to engage with trolls (duh! I believe nobody does). I share my opinion about stuff I like and throw the occasional shade. Even nowadays, I still get some great recommendations from fellow DLers and remain highly entertained by some threads.

DL can be a wonderful resource of entertainment ... if you use all the tools DL provides to curate your experience here. Sure, it requires some discipline, but I do it gladly in order to enjoy Datalounge.

You can't because DL (purposely, I'm sure) limits how many accounts you can ignore, while some of our trolls have dozens of accounts. It's like everyone on DL has already forgotten the guy who had a temper tantrum about a month ago and used 50 separate logins to post about poop, including multiple posts about how gays just love to eat feces. If you can only ignore 255 people and one troll alone has 50 logins, the ignore function is essentially useless.

You're just deflecting from what I said. You claimed all could be fixed if people simply curated their Datalounge experience. I pointed out that isn't true. DL doesn't let you ignore threads, the FF system is gamed by trolls, there's a limit to how many people you can ignore, there are no content filters whatsoever, they never moderate (or if they do it's temporary and useless) and there's no way to get rid of any thread in the sidebar that happens to pop up because it's active.

When you have people like r61 who have had a very simple concept explained to them three times already, and yet they still can't understand it (or, at best, are willing to spend lots of time pretending they don't understand it) it's easy to see why Datalounge is such a cesspool.

It's not the trolls so much as the fact that they're so fucking stupid.

by Now you can all pummel me for posting this well-intentioned threadreply 67July 5, 2021 11:58 PM

What I've always been curious about, in re: the Datalounge FAQ that r56 posted, is why anyone would want to run a gay forum where they actively encourage people to post "nigger" this and "faggot" that because "when you're offended, we're doing our job" and "if you don't like someone spamming the board with 'gas all Jews' then you should just leave."

Just generally speaking, who wants that, and why? Someone who's more of a Tinfoil Hattie than I am might start to wonder who would benefit from promoting the idea that gays either love posting "gas all Jews" or love defending those who post "gas all Jews."

And like others have already said, what kind of delicate snowflake creature has no problem with slurs but cries like a big slobbery tittybaby if someone dares to say "the slurs are out of hand around here"?

Things are really weird on DL and it's kind of odd that so many people don't question it.

by Now you can all pummel me for posting this well-intentioned threadreply 77July 6, 2021 3:22 AM

The one I remember r69 was the "gas all Jews" troll, it was a few months into the pandemic. It seemed like his game was to post troll stuff about Jews, gas and ovens in multiple threads, and then after a few days he would post saying he'd been "censored and banned," expecting sympathy. Instead people started posting proof that he had posted with an authenticated name (don't remember what it was) and he was also an anti trans troll.

I think the complaint about the trolls isn't so much that it eventually gets deleted but that we used to have filters that kept it from being posted in the first place. They removed the filters.

I've been here since 2013 and the site has changed hugely since then. Around 2018 there was an infestation of elderly fraus starting 20 threads a day to screech racist vitriol about Meghan Markle. They're still here, led by Surviving Angel.

The only rule of DL is: 'If you try to ride the Prancing Pony, you will be swiftly unmounted.' This originally referred to the Lord of the Rings tinhats but also to any conspiracy that got out of control and resulted in hundreds of posts a day. This definitely applies to the Klan Grannies with their gibberish about Archie being born by surrogate and Markle having 'powerful backers in Russia' who are helping her bring down the monarchy, yet no attempt is made to ban them.

They're already on this thread so I expect to be called a Russian bot imminently.

Any time I say something about Surviving Angel, someone comes along within minutes to tell me I'm a paranoid mental case who works for Sunshine Sacks.

There was one Meghan Markle hater troll who finally got a red tag about a month or two ago, but they were back within days.

If they would stay in their threads they would be fine, but the Meghan Markle and anti trans trolls are also right wingers, Q Anoners, anti Semites, racists and homophobes, and they go into every thread and stink the place up.

OP You’ll know when you’ve had the ultimate DL experience when some person gets into a snit because they don’t agree with you or because you’ve put them in their place with facts, and they respond with “and, you’re blocked!”.

I always see this response as a virtual hair toss - it brings me joy. Especially when they don’t block and forget and then subsequently respond.

There are some very silly queens on Datalounge, as there are in the real world.

At first I thought it had to be Muriel. (It wasn't.) When I've been flamed I get pissed but then I realize (sometimes) that they have a point.

It's a perfectly reasonable thing to wonder about, since there were anti-trans trolls in that thread saying the most hilariously wrong things about female anatomy and biology, they clearly weren't women but were claiming they were. You know how trolls are.

Not sure where this new "stop picking on weak, delicate rescue-chick" anti-trans troll tactic is coming from but I'm excited to see where it's going. A fresh new take! Tremendous.

As you know, ElderLez/r110, virtually all NYC threads had been rendered unusable by a troll who styles himself Former New Yorker or FNY (authenticates brandonjoseph). He has literally posted over 200 times in the linked thread. 30 of the last 35 posts in the thread below are his. Even without ignoredar, you will know him by his exclamation! points! and CRIME STATS!! Also his ad hominin attacks on anyone who dares says anything positive about NYC. I wonder if he could be r96's troll. The mental illness, OCD, and repetitiveness fit.

I'm another person that has been here for decades.

It's really, incredibly, silly to not acknowledge that this place has gotten nastier over the past few years.

This place is snarky, it requires a thick skin and you can guess which threads you should avoid by looking at the first post. If I ever do respond to a troll that is CLEARLY a troll I block them right after. There's no need for an argument.

However, yes. It has gotten worse over the past few years but not just here. Since Trump, people just say the most inflammatory things on every website to get attention. I've always said someone should write an article on this. Look at Twitter! It was NEVER that insufferable!

And YES the MAGAs are here. Sorry, but it's not "snark" to just straight go up into a thread and start posting racist comments over and over again and it's never just one person.

Ignore them, sure but I will continue to be annoyed that this place has attracted them and they're here to stay. (Along with the frau threads that are as far from reality as you can possibly imagine.)

R121 I don’t think less of you and I didn’t mean to imply that I thought you were anti-vaxx. I stay out of the Trans threads because they seem to be mostly populated with division trolls making spurious and inflammatory claims.

There are several types of trolls. Some just post shit to get DLers riled up enough to engage. Others try to establish a narrative (DL is overrun by RACISTS! Datalounge is racist, right wing, anti-gay, anti-trans, anti-women, anti-Liberal, etc.!).

The ignore feature works if you keep using it whenever you come across a post that you consider a troll comment. And yes, you will NEVER have a 100% troll free experience on DL (is any social media platform safe from trolls?). You will always come across posts that are intended to get you mad and engage in a fruitless attempt to clear up a misunderstanding, a common misconception, the latest right wing talking points, etc.

When in doubt, go back to the basics and: Don't feed the trolls.

I've been accused and attacked for posting something I never did, one poster kept accusing me of starting a new thread after posting in the other thread. I really think some people become over protective of threads they start, it is creepy.

So "well-intentioned" that I barely noticed all of your insults and false assumptions.

But you do you...maybe just a little less melodramatically.

brandonjoseph (authenticated)/FNY has now posted over 30 of the last 50 posts in the linked thread, and that's only in a couple of days. Many of those are 4 posts in a row, which isn't even close to a record for him. He has completely overtaken and derailed 4 threads that I now of (all nyc-oriented). I have wanted to start a thread about things to do in nyc, but he clearly has more time to spend here than I do.

I blocked SurvivingDevil a long time ago. That person definitely goes through Markle's trash can at night, hates her as if they had some kind of real life history together, and is not all there mentally.

Yes and it is infuriating. You just know before you post some asshole is going to go after you and claim something you are not.

VOTN acts like the main character in a hospital drama. Once when Covid was ramping up he posted about walking down the street and ripping his white coat off in anger and frustration. Omfg. Like a To Be Continued ending on ER or House some shit. Why are you even wearing it outside a hospital? Look at me! I'm a doctor sort of!

I can't believe how some DLers eat that shit up. They stamp their feet when anyone dares to roll their eyes at him and post about how they've been here 'almost ten years' and he's a venerated poster of yore who deserves respect or some shit, like he's Beyoncé.

I've been here seventeen years and he's a big MARY!

ElderLez, my seven year-old has been essentially 'locked down' since late March 2020. I got him back into swim lessons in May, when things appeared to be getting better for those of us who are vaccinated. His instructor wants him to join their little swim team. He handled the first year of covid like a champ, and even though he appears to be OK, I am worried for him, though I don't think I let on. In light of mental health and things, how bad would it be to let him join the swim team? How close do you think they really are to vaccination kids under 12? What would you do?

Someone once said you should have a podcast and I agree. I would pay you $5 to answer this question if I could. You're the only one whose opinion I care about (although I will entertain others).

I try to stay away from the Covid threads but sometimes the insanity and hysteria are too much for me to ignore. I definitely stay away from the Trump and Jan 6 threads, those people are truly unhinged.

I post what I want to post. It's seldom very controversial or inflammatory. There are many topics that I read avidly (the BRF threads) but I lack the expertise and information to contribute anything. Whatever I say, if someone wants to flame me, they can be my guest. If getting flamed on an anonymous message board is the worst thing that ever happens to a person, they're leading a charmed life.

're damned l ucky.
