ZERO Tolerance

Well, it's gotten to the point where there are gaps in the protective moderation net at Bungie.net. Trolls come in and say stuff, and people respond. It's really the response that makes them post. The responders are the real criminals here, making the trolls stay. The trolls can't help it, they're too stupid to know any better, so I propose a ZERO tolerance policy on responding to trolls. Anyone who responds to trolls is treated as a troll themselves. Let's face it, mod bans would be nice, but they won't help when there are no mods on, like right now, as i post this. If we want to rid ourselves of trolls willing to make a new sign-in everyday, we need to switch to ZERO tolerance for responding to trolls. That means no responce to the post itself.

  • I think I'll leave this up to Bungie. Quite frankly, there is nothing we can do. I think Bungie is aware of our problem, and it isn't that hard to ignore spammers. If you have huge problems with them, well, that's your problem. Just check your url's before clicking them, and just reply to interesting topics.

  • As much as I want to jump on their computer using the spammers IP addres and erase there registry (did I post this for the public viewing) I can't and that would be well illeagle. Doh. But don't feed the fire. Unless they constiantly reply to their own post or repost they won't stay on top. Besides they cant keep making new profiles forever to replace the ones that get blacklisted can they? Too bad we cant jump through this computer and bust them in the face for spamming.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] fludblud banning people for feeding trolls would do no good cos they dont know that they are making things even worse if people were banned, the forums would be filled with "OMG I GOT TEH B@NNED FOR NO F***ING REASON BUNGIE SUKS" it would go on and on and on this is what is happening with the steapowered forums and i dont want it to happen here *oh and there is mass spammage in the new mombasa forums RIGHT NOW*[/quote] Then bungie can just ban them so they don't come back, rather than temporary bans. Yes, there was an outbreak of somebody spamming the flood with "Frankie the mod banned me", but those posts were swiftly eradicated.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Josher 35 I wonder what these tools are...O well, as long as they work, I like em! I wish there was a way that the mods could always be here, so stuff like this doesn't happen (they are only human. Even Shishka has to recharge his batteries, lol.). I trust what Bungie does so I'm not going to argue about what they are doing. I just wish they could kind of speed up the process. Hopefully these [i]tools[/i] will come with the remodeling of the 7th Column! We can only wait. Wait for it, like its Halo 2![/quote] But this gets overused as an excuse for people wanting to be mods...so with the new stuff in place, there will be no excuse. Muhahahaha.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Baerdog7 O Maka, I hope you speak the tru7h. I am almost at my wits' end with all of the spammers and trolls. I've tried to reason with a few of them, I've tried to post relevant info in NM and the other forums but I am fed up. The Septagon is my final haven and it to is showing weak spots in the porverbial wall. As sfor WarHammer01's comment about IP changing, yes, it is possible. Mine changes every day because of my isp for security. -Baerdog7[/quote] Agreed, only today the first signs of spam leaked into the Septagon. It seems that we will never be fully safe until what Maka says goes into operation. I welcome that day with wide, open, welcoming arms.

  • Ah, Reiginko didn't say eliminate spam, he said eliminate spammers. I know of a ton of ways to virtually eliminate spam from the forums. There will always be spam, of course, but it's the mass-spam that sucks, and there are plenty of ways to reduce that. Wrong I am not.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] The Rip Saw [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Reiginko There will soon be new innovative super-banning tools that will prevent even the most experienced spammer from ever returning. In the meantime, hang in there and try to ignore them as much as you can. - Reiginko[/quote]That's either the biggest lie I've ever heard, or the most ignorant statement of all-time, I don't really know. They can always come back, there is no way to keep them away for good. The only thing I can think of involves downloading a program onto your computer, but even that can be circumvented easily enoough if you know computers. Maybe the assumtion is that trolls are stupid and know nothing about computers, but the only way I can think of of keeping trolls away involves alienating thousands of current members of Bungie.net, or requiring Bungie to have our personal information that can be varified. There are methods that do not involve the net that Bungie can use, of course, like sending mail to new users with a code to verify they have a unique [b]real[/b] adress. But there is nothing online I can think of that doesn't have more negatives than positives, or that Bungie hasn't already said they [b]won't[/b] use.[/quote] Sorry Rip, but you're wrong Tools are on the way to effectively eliminate spam from ever happening, so don't assume that Reiginko doesn't know what he's talking about. Be patient, because in a short while, this site is going to be clean
