I've only been a member here for a few months (and a lurker for a few months before that), but in the last thirty days or so there seems to be a big increase in trolls and their fellow travelers. They're usually complete retards, as any socialist must necessarily be, but it makes me wonder who else is lurking on the boards... and if they're reporting back to anyone.

Anyone else noticing this?

There was a DU plot to troll boards like this one to get people to say illegal things about the prez or threaten any kind of violence so they could get them in trouble. It's been awhile it's propably a good thing to remember when these trolls pop up.

I didn't come into GD for at least 3 months in there.

I was lurking every now and again, but had a lot going on and zero spare time. I"m on every day now and definitely am seeing more DUmmies than usual.

I havent noticed...I dont pay attention to them any longer.
I post in the threads I like, I click the 'back' button on the ones I dont.
There are enough real things to argue about with real people.....I dont need the pretend drama on the Internet after a long day at the office.

Dont feed the trolls.

Fuck, this is normal for GD. Before the election this place was a fucking mad house

To be fair, there are far, far, far more troll threads against DU than against us.

Trolls come and go...I have seen it over the years!...The Mods here are freaking awesome when it comes to weeding them out and sending them down the road in most cases..

It does allow for some entertainment sometimes depending on how bad of a troll they attempt to be..

What I can't stand is Troll Accounts of acting members who use them to stir the pot against the betterment of the site...This can and has made us all look like a bunch of buffoons at times...But it is there again entertaining to see Site Staff give the Ban Hammer when they get caught...

there is one that had 100 posts in only his first 3 days. He also said he's been here as long as me, but he just had this account started on March 20th.

lol....I'm sure the irony escapes the DUng trolls.........DU was investigated at least 3 times by the SS for threats to President Bush.

I could be considered a troll.

I don't post much and have a recent join date. Hell, I don't even have an AR, yet.

BTW, who/what is DU?
Link Posted: 3/26/2009 4:23:31 PM EST
Nope. I just have a life outside of ARFCOM.

With all the political craziness in this country of late, I have found myself in this place's tractor beam.

But I assure you that I am not a troll.

As a former pilot, I did find your posts to be a little outlandish..




ETA: Not a troll, but outlandish..

I never said I was a pilot. I was just trying to explain that if the PIC made an abrupt change to the pitch and roll axes, the trusting passenger in the right seat would probably not have time nor the ability to comprehend, assert control and recover the aircraft.

If it was a parachute, I could have made a better argument, as I have a bit of experience. However, my A/C experience is limited to about 20 hours behind the right stick of DHC-6-100, taking over at 850 AGL and flying to 13.5k.

Around that time is when I first found Arfcom, I remember just how bad it was.

Was great for a laugh though, and still is quite frankly.

Not to mention being fun as hell to utterly mop the floor with. A liberal is just a socialist with no rational argument.

There is no rational argument for socialism either.

Compared to other forums, arfcom has very few trolls.
Link Posted: 3/26/2009 5:01:32 PM EST
They seem to be of the same ilk as the flood of liberal callers on talk radio. They are definitely working from a script:

- Hi, I am a big fan (like in ARFCOM they claim to own guns)
- I respect you for being outspoken on your beliefs
- BUT, I don't like how you are so disrespectful of President Obama (of course they never give specific examples)

There must be a DU or other libtard org spreading how to mess with conservative forums script. Pretty lame when the sitting President resorts to using his street thugs to try to shutdown free speech. Never will work dumb ass!

I'm just operating under the assumption that everyone that joined since early 2008 is a troll. Freakin' newbies are everywhere.

I am more concerned about the Columbine types trolling here recently;high school kids who are into World of Warcraft and have discovered the black rifle.Wiki experts at arms and warfare even as they get their pimple med prescriptions refilled.I can see a mass school shooting in April ala Columbine and the shooters being linked to this site.MSNBC-"We are reporting tonight that the school shooter(s) got their knowledge and info from a site dedicated to assault weapons."
