Print Story How to solve the Kuro5hin problem
First Kuro5hin has a problem, and we are all aware of what it is, I need not go into details. Actually it has many problems, but we all know what they are.


It is no secret that a lot of Kuro5hin members also have accounts here, many often crosspost on Kuro5hin as well as Husi.

A new strategy on solving the Kuro5hin Troll problem, starve the trolls out. Why are we feeding them, why do we bite on their trolls? Maybe we can stop doing that, and make them starve out their attention disorders?

What I propose is this:

#1 Stop mentioning Kuro5hin.

#2 Do not refer to comments, diaries, or stories on Kuro5hin.

#3 If a Kuro5hin member posts a troll here, ignore it, and move on to something else.

#4 If they cite a post on Husi from Kuro5hin, and it is your comment suppress it, make them look foolish. Yes if they have an account on Husi they can see The Hole and all of the comments in The Hole.

#5 Avoid any negativism they display, only respond to positive things they post, do not reward them for bad behavior, do not pay them any attention unless they post something good and worthwhile. By this we can train them to become good users instead of trolls.

#6 Be positive ourselves, avoid negative things we might say, because they will try to troll us on them. Avoid complaining, they will troll us on that. Avoid showing negative emotions like anger, frustration, paranoia, fear, etc.

#7 Avoid giving out personal information they can use to troll us with later. Try to be vague about your life and only talk about positive things.

#8 Avoid using Kuro5hin if possible, and if you do only use it to read. Never post, unless you think you can make a post and avoid a troll.

#9 Stop caring about what Kuro5hin members think about ourselves or Husi. Their opinions on Husi and ourselves don't really matter anyway, because they are based on wild exaggerations if not outright lies.

#10 Post to help build up the community here at Husi, avoid doing trolls here.

Just my suggestions, based on my opinions on how trolls work, and I have experience on trolling, and I am trying to avoid being a troll despite what my user name here says.

WHOA! It looks like we trolled the hell out of them! Without even trying! Kurons are such biters.

Actually I stopped caring about it by Linus Trollvalds (1.33 / 3) #5 Wed Nov 14, 2007 at 01:43:30 PM EST
days ago.

I am moving on to bigger and better things.

I just posted to help others stop caring about it as well, but to each their own.

Maybe you could by spacejack (4.00 / 4) #7 Wed Nov 14, 2007 at 01:58:46 PM EST
give the Kurons an introductory course on troll avoidance techniques. Perhaps there's a "HOWTO: Not Get Trolled" guide somewhere online that you could point them to.

We didn't mean to troll K5 - Husi folks are a pretty friendly bunch for the most part - but with a site full of biters, walled-in from the rest of the outside world as they are, it can sometimes be difficult to not troll them by accident, due to their own inexperience.

Actually I don't care about it by Linus Trollvalds (2.00 / 2) #10 Wed Nov 14, 2007 at 02:38:41 PM EST
enough to write one.

Lucky for others, someone else already wrote one about that for those who do not want to be trolled anymore.

I'm getting very apathetic these days, I just dodged a bullet recently, and decided to become a better person as a result. Why just recently I took a course on using better English, to improve my writing, as some of you here noticed an improvement on my writing. So I don't care about trolls anymore, and I am spending my time learning new things and improving myself instead.

Wait... by gazbo (4.00 / 2) #17 Thu Nov 15, 2007 at 12:02:18 AM EST
Trolls on K5 talk about HuSi posts?

I recommend always assuming 7th normal form where items in a text column are not allowed to rhyme.
