Where are all the gray lined threads coming from?
It seems weird. For the longest time anything about Ellen's dancing puppet, Meagain, got greyed out but it was assumed squads of paid winged monkeys were at work so you could count on anything $u$$ex getting the gray line.
But then there's the following, from the political to the harmless to the inconsequential...
The gays need to boycott Joy Reid's advertisers - strikethrough
THEATRE GOSSIP #443: The "I'm Just A DLer Who Can't Let It Go!" Edition - strikethrough
The Gays and Tennis Part 103: Year-End Thread - strikethrough
Media keeps focusing on Biden's Approval ratings - strikethrough
Every week the media focuses on Biden's lower approval ratings. The man hasn't been in office for 9 months and had to clean up the fucking mess the last
Below Deck - Season 9 - strikethrough
I mean, WTF - the theatre thread, the tennis thread and Below fucking deck? Where's the harm?
What is going on?

There is a weird hater who lurks on Datalounge, and they target posters who they don't like.
Of course because of the blocking feature, this weirdo can stalk people and then target every thread they create, and get it grayed out.
That's what happens when you have no life and too much time on your hands.

The problem with the people who post the Markle hater and the anti-trans posts is that they steadfastly will not learn how Datalounge works, so they make stuff up like they're doing in this thread.
Threads getting grayed out are not "a problem." It happens when people ignore and FF the OP and their thread. Change settings to Asbestos Eyeballs and a lot of these grayed-out threads will stop being grayed out.

DL should just show down votes instead and leave the post intact so at least others can read it and judge for themselves. I could even accept it being lined out (at least you can still read it), but the line-out also deletes any links.

The threads get graylined and then the OP of those threads often gets redlined, because of some recent-ish changes to DL.
Muriel made it more difficult to create sockpuppets, by blocking old threads to new posts; and, locking threads to unpaid members when there are too many comments by unpaid subscribers (aka sockpuppets/trolls). These changes made it difficult to create new accounts with sufficient karma to post, reply and vote from. I suspect other changes were made regarding FF sensitivity.
In the old days, trolls could abandon an account by deleting as soon as they smelled trouble. Back then I'd often see an account make a few vile comments, then be deleted within minutes or an hour. Now that you can't get new unpaid troll accounts up and running as quickly, trolls hang onto them, sometimes too long, and they get gray- or red-lined.
The topics I see get lined out are things I'd expect: Repetitive threads about obscure actors, Instagram whore threads (these 2 topics often created to generate quick karma), concern trolling threads about trans, race, and Democratic Party members, and pet topics by the Loon, such as the anti-bi threads she has been posting here and on Reddit.

It takes multiple posters FFing a thread to get it grayed out.
If a particular topic is constantly being grayed out, it's likely that either (a) there are too many similar threads, (b) the topic/subject is unpopular, or (c) the discussion pursued in said threads is extremely similar to prior discussions.

This doesn't make any sense. I assume "blocking old threads to new posts" means "LOCKING" old threads to new posts.
Locking down the older threads was just to stop Davida/DeFacto from bumping so many old threads, it has had no effect on the number of sockpuppets or trolls we have. Locking down popular threads also has no effect on the number of trolls or sockpuppets we have.
Trolls and sockpuppets are created when someone registers a new email address and then sits on DL long enough to be allowed to post.
That's it. Mediapolis has done NOTHING to stem the tide of sockpuppets and trolls. I wouldn't say the trolls have "pure amnesty" but it's close. At least with the original setup you couldn't create a new account unless you used a different browser and/or VPN. Now you can just create as many throwaway email accounts as you want and there's no limit to the sockpuppets you can have.

This is actually true, as of a couple months ago I noticed that you can get banned real easy when you're starting out with new karma, but all that does is HELP the trolls, which Mediapolis doesn't realize. It just means Davida can FF you with three of her sockpuppets and you get a short timeout for it, when it used to take her a lot more sockpuppets to ban a new account or someone with zero karma.
Those numbers are estimates but based on my own experience. I was the R 1 in one of her troll posts and I called it a troll post, because it was. It took less than a minute for me to get banned, and at the same time her own OP got 4 WWs. From there I extrapolated that those 4 WWs were her OP and three sockpuppets, who surely also FFed me. That's all it took.

I don't think that's Muriel, I think someone has a literal list of topics that were popular and brings them up every few weeks or so in order to get WWs and interaction, which raises their karma. It makes FFs less effective against them.
My suspicion is that's why we have so many long-time trolls and why it takes so long for accounts like GermanGayGuy or DeFacto to get banned, because they've posted something about, say, Robert Downey Jr or Martha Stewart or Ordinary People and gotten positive interaction from it, which negates the ignores and FFs they got elsewhere.

I never said that this troll starts many threads about Markles and trans. On the contrary, she bombs the threads that include such topics attacking the posters that express an opinion that is less then admiration for Markles and trans. She wants to stop any free expression on such topics, she would call you racist, Boris, Russian spy, will post 20 nonsense posts like Tranny ate my granny, Boris is ugly incel to stop the discussion. She will FF you with her sock puppets until you get banned for a day.
She just has a thing for Markle and trans people ( God knows what Meghan and trans have in common) and she wants to prevent DL pointless bitchery being applied on them. She just sees it as her mission to silence fags. She is very homophobic and think gay men are jealous of Markle pussy and want to be women, hence they are trans women.
This would be funny if she wasn't vile and nasty and homophobic. She started a disgusting thread about poor harmless Greg the cook and Surviving angel. They must have said something about Meghan or trans that she found offensive. These are the threads she starts or the Boris paranoia threads.
And she is rather irritating in trying to introduce censorship on a gay forum. I don't care about royals, but since Markles try to catch the public attention frequently I don't see why they can't be a topic like anybody else. Same with trans people. I want to be allowed to speak about this phenomena.
I know she probably is a mentally ill woman, but you can't just let mentally ill people moderate the web site. I mean, who will come next with his topics that should be taboo.

[quote]Why did Muriel create the F&F system in the first place then, r4?
I'm not r4 but the system goes back to the beginning when DL had separate sub-forums. We had a sidebar with posts that got a lot of "Wit & Wisdom" upvotes, and things that got enough downvotes went to the "Flames & Freaks" sub-forum, that separated troll-infested threads from the normal threads.
Over the years it changed and the Wit & Wisdom sidebar was taken away, because people figured out how to game the system and get awful stuff into the W&W sidebar. Briefly there was a front page called "The Zeitgeist" where WWed posts would go, but that got gamed as well and was removed. Mediapolis KNOWS the system is easily gamed.
Eventually Wit & Wisdom and Flames & Freaks turned into WW and FF buttons. A few years ago they limited the number of FFs we could give, which to this day I believe is because they simply didn't want to bother to have to keep checking to see why someone was getting 100s of FFs.
Then you'll get someone who works on DL telling us to "FF trolls into oblivion" and that will fix all our problems, it's like they don't even know how their own site works.

I do believe that crazy Trans-Meghan frau is not the only one that believes that Markle and trans mentioning should be prohibited on DL, but she is probably the one who is most ferocious about it and the one threatening people and spamming the threads with nonsensical content and starting the lynch threads about some posters.
I see there are some other posters who think that only haters and racists are mentioning the Markles. But is it true? Markles are frequently in public, giving interviews to TV, giving public statements, so naturally they attract attention. I was attacked as racist and banned for day by saying I didn't care about royal bimbo, when her name came on some other thread. This is what made me interested in this strange censorship, because my post obviously wasn't racist I would have said the same if she looked like Agnetha from Abba.
I didn't notice a racist post about them, because people are careful not to be seen as racists. The posters are posting about their personalities, and though some of posters may be racists, probably the majority is not. Obviously, racism is only in head of people who see these posts as racist. I have noticed that English royal family is popular on DL, so why would Markles be prohibited? Far worse things have been said about a real black woman Condoleeza Rice, and no one cares. Far worse have been said about Condoleeza, Pete Buttigieg, Timothee Chalamet and many others.. Who are these royal sycophants then?
I personally am not interested in royal family all that much, but am intrigued by this attempt of prohibition.

Here is a post about Trans-Meghan looney from the Surviving angel thread:
it is OP who is the troll who has been accusing everyone on DL with racism if they criticize Meghan, not SA. OP is the Klan Granny Troll. She's trying to accuse SA of doing what she herself is doing: endless sock puppet accounts, rants about the net closing in on the anti-Meghan posters on LSA, accusing SA of being a paid bot, etc.
In asking, Who is this Surviving Angel cunt? the actual mysterious cunt who appears on every Meghan thread to scream Racism Hater Klan Klan Granny and talk about being paid agents out to destroy Meghan.
As those journalists have pointed out, ugly tactics are Meghan's fans' calling card. That's the real issue about this thread, not Lady C. Someone always inserts a link to Lady C's latest in threads. I happen to think she and River are a crock and don't know nearly the shit they pretend to, but that isn't the point.
It's OP who is part of a subset of Meghan's fandom who has put up veiled threats (all hot air) that posters on LSA are being tracked in some way, their info collected on databases, reported to "authorities", that they're part of some paid ring, and that a "high profile legal case" is about to explode in the media in which they'll all be exposed and get what's coming to them . . .
OP has been doing this "someone's coming for you haters after we deal we with LSA" dance here for years. The not too veiled suggestion that DL posters who criticise Meghan might be next has, of course, not worked any better here than on LSA. Singling out SA for special treatment is just a new tactic.
I'm a long time DLer. I have no problem with a good brawl now and again, and there are posters I despise. But I've never opened a thread on any of them.
OP wants to scare SA off. That's all this is about. A fanatic trying to intimidate a heretic.

I really don't care about royals, if I haven't being the target of bullying by simply stating that I don't care about royal bimbo on some thread about a completely different topic I wouldn't know anything about it. Then I read some more on Surviving angel bashing thread, about death threats, bullying etc. And now disgusting thread about poor harmless Greg.
I don't say Meghan is to blame for it. She is not important. It could be someone else' s fans, Armie Hammer's Charmies. But they aren't.
I just wonder how passive and without compassion for the bullied posters you DL queens could be. You are hissing at completely nice women who come to post here, but are scared of few crazy fraus that want to dictate you which topics are prohibited.

Thanks for summing the problem up. Women bringing their crazy drama to a gay board about topics that have nothing to do with gay men.

Dear R48, posting successfully, that is, without getting FFd, with your new (sockpuppet) account is essential to it accruing enough karma to do other things like vote and post new threads. I've explained this in detail elsewhere so this will be briefish: The old threads were perfect to post throwaway bump comments to, since most people won't pay much attention. Sometimes there would be 3 to 5 different sockpuppets in the same old thread; and some mornings - almost always in the early morning - there would be ten or more threads bumped. I personally wrote Muriel and begged to have all threads inactive over 6 months locked.
Bump bitchery is still going on, but there's less of it. Whenever I see it, I call it out in the thread. When you see it, you should FF and block the bump bitch. Usually it's an obscure or stupid topic, and the new bump comments are nonsequiturs. Frequently the link will have few or no working links, and at times many of the comments and even the OP are already troll-red-lined.
R50 is correct in that a classic troll tactic is to start anodyne threads to gain karma traction, then veer off into the typical antisocial territory. On Reddit, the MO is to begin a new account with some emotional scenario troll story to get lots of upvotes and pity. Moreover, I'm virtually certain that PS maintains a list of old threads she started for future reference. Remember how often, despite PS's exacting English skills, that many (of her) threads had typos in the titles? I believe that was deliberate - it throws off people trying to search; and, it makes it easier for her to find those threads later if she searches on the deliberate misspelling.
The Bellagio Loon also continually trolls and anti-trolls, playing many sides of a controversy at once, talking to herself. She creates characters then attacks them and creates drama - AIKC was one of those. She loves to create unassailable characters, like disabled or victimized women, and racial minorities.

R81 is right. Why are so many straight women coming to a GAY site? We've always had a few cool ones but it seems to have attracted a ton of middle-aged church lady types bringing a ton of shit gays don't care about.

Nice try, Muriel @ r50, but everybody knows you're the Copycat Thread Thief because you always delete catalogues documenting the posts and threads where you originally stole your thread ideas from.
Just Google the Datalounge threads "People who copy topics from existing threads and post them as "their own,"" and "Muriel is the Copycat Thread Thief." You'll have to read the Google cache versions since Muriel obliterated her dirty laundry from this website.

Girl, I am well intended, go and find a man, Meghan can take care of herself, she is way younger, prettier and richer than you, she found herself a prince and has two kids. And what have you got. You are getting older and fatter, no decent job, no man, no kids. You waste your time sending threats to people who dare to criticize a royal couple. A straight woman hanging on gay site all day being royal guardian for free.
You are pathetic and I pity you. At least go and do some voluntary work in poor black neighborhood, if you care about racial issue. You might meet some guy there.

My English is basic but I do speak my own language. While your native English is basic and poor, with primitive syntax and thought that shows you have very low level of education, maybe not even high school.
Can we call you Broken syntax troll.
And your mocking of a foreigner's language skills that you come from broken home, that gave you no house manners.
I can only imagine what are you saying to immigrants about their language skills. And you think you are no right winger? You are fascist bitch, but you don't know what it means.

[quote]Dear [R48], posting successfully, that is, without getting FFd, with your new (sockpuppet) account is essential to it accruing enough karma to do other things like vote and post new threads.
I am aware, r16/r82, but that doesn't have the effect of reducing sockpuppets as you claim.
The number of replies a new account makes is essential to its karma, so you say new sockpuppets make throwaway comments to up their number of replies, and you claim old threads and paywalled threads were necessary for these throwaway comments, which is why Mediapolis shut them down.
The problem is that no one needs the old and paywalled threads to make throwaway comments. A new account can comment anywhere and increase their number of replies, thereby increasing their karma. They don't need those old or paywalled threads to do it in.
All a new account needs to do is wait the requisite few days and they'll be able to post. Once a sockpuppet can post, all they have to do is write replies on regular threads. At that point they will increase the number of their replies, plus their other sockpuppets will WW those replies, and their karma goes up.
That's it. That's all they need to do. It doesn't involve old/paywalled threads at all. Don't overthink this.
Also consider toning down the condescension a touch. We're all speculating on how Datalounge works because we are explicitly NOT told how it works. Your speculation is duly noted, but it doesn't make any sense, and sounds like you're trying to credit Mediapolis for trying to quell the tide of sockpuppets when they haven't.

R97, one or many free accounts can post only so many times to a thread until the thread gets paywalled and becomes subscriber only. This was the first attempt at limiting trolling but it didn't do much because the trolls simply created more threads.
When you have a jillion sockpuppet accounts which all need 10 or 20 successful posts to launch Klan Granny and bi hate and Democrat concern trolling threads, you need a lot of old threads to keep the momentum going. The thread bumping got out of control and people began to complain about it frequently.
No condescension is implied. Why are you so concerned with making me wrong, R97? Are those Bellagio toiletries stuffed in your pockets? Really, you need to update that poodle perm - even Janet Jackson stopped Jheri-curling her hair by the late 1990s. And you need to get some new shoes, or get those cleaned and dyed, perhaps a brown shade for the autumn.

No one said R52 and R56 were the same, r101.
If I was being generous, I'd say you got confused and now you're just making shit up and tripling down out of embarrassment.
However, I know that confusion, misinformation and deflection are all common troll tactics, and that you're always in these threads screaming that Muriel is every troll on DL, is a rabid rightwinger posting propaganda 24/7, and also stealing your posts and out to get you. It doesn't take a genius to figure out what's really going on here.

Why don't you explain how r4 knows that "Muriel is aware of it, and working on the problem," r98, if Muriel is NOT a troll posting here?
And if r4, who still hasn't explained herself, is the troll to which you are referring, why didn't you call out r4?
OH, THAT'S RIGHT. YOU'RE MURIEL AND YOU'RE A TROLL POSTING DISINFORMATION HERE WITH SOCKPUPPETS.
Or I could be wrong, and smelling some other dickless, plagiarist sociopath who runs a shady, toxic waste dump of a website with shit functionality and decoy functionality just so the Borderline PD shit-posting webmaster can have someone to talk to, being completely revolting, anti-social, obviously nuts and ugly IRL.

No, you don't. You can make those "successful posts," i.e. replies, in any thread, you don't need old threads to do it in.

Nobody debunked anything, R105. Go scrub some toilets, loon. Your all-caps screaming gives you away.
I already explained why, R106 (also probably R105). Too many unpaid posts in a thread paywalls the thread to more unpaid posts, thus limiting the reach of unpaid account trolls. That's why they need to keep creating new threads. Other obvious reasons they need to keep creating new accounts and threads are because they get FFd, or they go too far with their trolling and delete the account before it gets banned.

Twitter is full of russian (and american) BOTS paid by republicans to post right-wing content in english exclusively on the internet. Their accounts are finished with numbers like this:
@boristhepig888865234 The ones from before 2019 are usually Inactive and abandoned, IT IS VERY POSSIBLE that some of those bot trolls found their way into Datalounge to try to lure gay votes to the Republican party.
I don't have a problem believing that because you TROLLS are very REPETITIVE , copying and pasting the same stuff day and night on Datalounge.
