Negative commentry (again?)

category: general [glöplog]
Also, in the end, most active participants (of the forum at least) visit parties, have a Facebook account, et cetera. So what anonimity are talking about exactly?

superplek: yeah, that's exactly my point. Many people here know each other by person, but it doesn't prevent anyone to engage "shit posting", baiting each other etc... and in rare cases even posting very negative or vulgar comments. And this is precisely what "vulgar trolls" are all about (from the guide).
The only question is - do we really want to take any measures to prevent those rare, extreme cases? But it's not the first time we discuss it I suppose. And the usual conclusion was: no.

And the usual conclusion was: no.

I (as usual) didn't take the time to dig into the posts or links deeply but I agree; every society or community, be it big or small, can go a long way without being muted to shield it from every little incident. I've met some of the nicest people by trashing on them and then meeting them in the flesh, actually.

my intention isn't punishment but self-reflection.

Thanks for the irony of this whole thread; perfect reading matter for the morning coffee.
Can we please have a monthly pouet print version? I guess it would sell better than BILD.

The motivation for overly negative comments often comes from a drive to define ones personality by beeing dismissive and disrespectful: "I know who I am because I know what I hate."

I generally have been trending towards rewarding what I like and ignoring what I don't (you can see a very sharp turn towards me doling out thumbs up and the occasional piggie or down versus 10 years ago when it was the other way around).

I know there are shy, sensitive people who prefer to be unnoticed when their productions are not satisfying others but I would prefer 100 000 times to get negative shit comments if my prods were so shitty than to be politely ignored. No reaction is the most unpleasant thing to get especially when you make an effort and you want to know how others see it

General German is a Major Asshole, somebody should punish him corporally

That depends a little bit. Often times you know you've lost a battle even before the final bell has rung , no need to be told that over and over I feel, but sure. Also I'll gladly decide for myself how I spend my time here :)

Wow, didn't know the hate was so strong in this one. Of course one could claim (and agree) that I am a sucky graphician and all that, but this seems kind of obsessive

No need to worry about Baudsurfer tho... apparently he left the scene or something when nobody wanted to buy his demoscene domains.
