    No you do not have to. I find that simply ignoring them or denying them the reaction that they crave is quite effective in silencing them. Be like water, in that when you enounter an obstacle, just curve around it and keep it moving.

    ignoring takes too much energy. Their should be a way to deal directly with
    folks.. like some collective feature where enough votes boots them from the
    thread.. or some feature that makes the users posts invisible to you.. acting
    like someone didn't say something they did say is impossible particularly
    on a discussion board.. we need some kind of collective community ability to
    censure a user.. or expel a user.. isolate them like the NOI did folks.. something
    .. but pretending like they didn't say what they said is impossible.. in my opinion.​

    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I tend to agree with Sister Alexandra, but when that is not sufficient for you all, post a complaint.

    I realize there's been a few of those lately, some i missed, and am more than willing to revisit if necessary (just give me a link).

    Things have been very challenging for me / us, the management of the community, but we're here ... just a bit slower.

    If you feel someone has violated our rules, present that evidence, and it will be addressed.

    :heart:

    funny how the stove wants to call the refrigerator white , and the Dick Cheney's of the world want to call progressives, warmongers.
    [​IMG]

    The Dick Cheneys of the world assume that they are superior to Black folks and that folks will not do their own thinking and

    investigation

    As if Black folks do not know the type of language and non related posts that a troll makes


    For instance;

    on each personal profile there is a section called;

    STATISTICS

    Take a look carefully at the posts under statistics and one can determine exactly who and who does not portray Trollish behavior in their last 50 posts


    Black folks aren't stupid, and rely on evidence and not the propaganda of hate gangs

    The evidence is all there in print and the beauty of the internet and recorded record of ....uhm.... activities,

    is that it squashes all "he said, she said"
