In that respect, Notty crashing the thread is a good thing: Keeps the contagion in-house.
It's not a perfect solution -- there's no avoiding the fact that Notty sets fires elsewhere. But the presence of a semi-official Notty-bashing thread in Off-Topic helps keep the board tidy, by discouraging similar threads from being started.
Theory of Mod aside, the shortest life of a Notty thread has to be a matter of minutes -- especially when he was posting "protest" threads after the original (Classic Notty?) got locked. Big Will was not pleased that night.
I would start one except for three fact
(1) those of you who do the most troll busting deserve the right
(2) i start crappy threads
(3) ijust like to watch
This late in the game, Notty's novelty has long since worn off -- we all know who he is by now, and what he says. There's no point in me starting Yet Another Notty Thread, since I've already started two and there's not much else I can say about him. Even if I did, it also runs the risk of becoming too popular for its own good, and getting promoted to the Indiana Jones Warehouse of Hot Topics.
Of course, if someone else wants to start fresh, that's fine with me, and it probably should be called something like "The Official NAFB Thread", just for clarity. But aside from my ongoing Interpretive Dance and other drive-bys, I'm going to try to resist temptation.
Not that I've shown much strength so far...
sorry to yell but. Big will has kicked NAFB off... again.
it's been over week since Hess has posted
are there any other trolls out there to laugh at (post duplicated at Thread that dare not speak it name)
I did notice a brief Notty thread on Sunday that Big Will or someone quickly deleted. When Notty didn't start three protest threads in response, I thought he might indeed be dearly departed.
So, we'll see whether my Interpretive Dance remains unfinished, for lack of inspiration. Haven't even got the gerbils on stage yet.
Dance on... Dance on
EDIt: this thread is getting to be more of a chat. any one else out there?!
We do have our standards here, after all. We only bash the best trolls.
