Okay, folks. . .we've had a pretty good week interacting with the folks from Silver and Black Pride this week, and we've got our Game Thread coming up starting at about 10:30 AM Central time tomorrow.
If you've been in the Game Threads the past few weeks, you know what that means. It means that we're going to get our standard trolling. From the same person that we've gotten the pleasure of "getting to know" over the past couple of weeks. Basically, our Game Threads have contracted a case of herpes. It's not our fault that we got it, and regardless of how many treatments we get, it's not going away. We just have to do the best we can to attempt to control the outbreaks.
So, with that in mind, when it happens. . .and it will happen. . .to borrow a line from latter-day American philosopher Tommy Chong, just don't freak out, man. Flag the comment, and either Ted or I will take care of it (I'd normally include Eric, too, but he's going to be at the Dome tomorrow and not moderating). Heck, between Ted and myself, I'll be shocked if the comment is actually there long enough for anyone to flag before it gets deleted.
Trolls love attention. Unfortunately, recently we. . .or, more accurately, I. . .have been giving it to them. This definitely needs to come to an end, so let's effort to make it happen starting tomorrow afternoon. Don't respond, don't curse, don't throw things. . .just flag it.
(Oh, and to the folks that might be coming over from Raider Nation, I'm not referring to you guys. Certainly not. We've gotten no indication from you guys that you're a bunch of trolls, and we'll stay with that assumption until we're given reason to think otherwise.)
