Trolls... and how to feed them

Evidently, our adversaries in Cyber-Recovery have drawn their lines in the sand and told their minions to stop coming outside to play with us.

What needs to be done is clear as crystal.

Do or not do. And live with the consequences as best you can.

says z — I have to decide whether this place is worth it.

Ignorant peckerwoods such as that excreble creature aka, ‘tony’ drive the quality of this blog to the vanishing point. I do not suffer fools. Personally, I have had individuals better than that vulture, ‘tony ‘, escorted by security out of the building.

says correct. The fools are completely useless. And, they know that they are.

says FTG:

The “trolls” as you call them, actually add spice to this blog. They were more prevalent last year, and I especially miss McGowdog, believe it or not. I think that you may have overlooked the fact that most of the people here are old enough to take care of themselves, and argue their positions on issues in an adult manner.

Your suggestions on how to deal with these “trolls” are similar to AA’s current means of dealing with dissenters, which include shunning, banning (and even physical threats, as toward me).

I hope that you cool down and rethink your position, before this site becomes just another cult, as Tony J accuses on his own blog.

Well thank you, Rotten Ralph.

Rotten Ralph says

The majority of people commenting here are the “loyalists” of Stinkin Thinkin, and will agree with you if you tell them that the earth is flat and the “trolls” should be pushed over the edge.

These same “loyalists” are molding this site into a monotonous, repetitious rant against AA that demonstrates the same group dynamics as AA has. Others have already posted about the overwhelming negativity here at times.

If you would close off your site to only those who completely agree with your all beliefs, then at least state those beliefs openly on your home page. I don’t at all agree with one matter that I believe you stand for (that addiction is not a disease), and I have argued that point recently. If that makes me a “troll” in your eyes, OK, but then so is nearly everyone else in the world outside of Stinkin Thinkin..

Ya see now, ftg?  You gotta protect your users like tintop from the trolls!

Once you round up your trolls by the ear and lead them to your "community" section, maybe you'll get a chance to get some f2f time with your friends/family.

Happy MLK Day!


  1. Got a bit of a spam problem again. Checking to see if this one gets through.

  2. Am I to understand that the good folks at Stinkin Thinkin want to corner the market on Cults? No wonder they're so pissed off at Bill Wilson and his devout followers. He's hornin in on their turf.
    I damn near had to post over there yesterday. Something stupid Gunther said. I didn't though. I figure he would come back with something even stupider yet. Then the others would fling stupidity at me until I was driven back like Frankenstein when they were chasing him with torches and hounds. I didn't want to die in a windmill so I slowly backed away from the keyboard.

  3. Tony is immune to their pitch forks and torches. He and this "diablo" are holding their own and I'm quite sure that tintop is gonna come back in at any moment and tell them both to "sod off" and "GTF outta here!" and to "Go to hell... or to a meeting... whichever is closer".

    Those people hate proA.A. like a vampire hates the Sun. Something's gotta give.
