I enjoyed Offbeat for a while, but then left for several months because of all of the weird stuff going on. I mean, I know it's called "Offbeat" for a reason, but in just a few days I realized there were some intense feuds here....people accusing people of being this poster or that poster, the post judging.....lol. That is funny.

For those of you who repeatedly clear your cookies and click, click, click away, please know that it really is evident who the culprits are.

And the personal attacks.....just wow.

Anyway, the trolls.....they win when they manage to recruit many of the other posters into being trolls themselves. This phenomenon is evident here. And it just happens because the original trolls are so shocking and sensational that most people can't help but call them out. Wrong move. Then you somehow have entire threads dedicated to a troll....they love this attention. It's their goal in the first place. In fact, I believe that some threads dissing those trolls are created by the trolls themselves. Extreme narcissism.

The only way to deal with a troll is report and then ignore them.

Well, thanks for letting me vent and get that off my chest. Just tired of the BS.

Have a nice day all.

Wiser words have never been spoken Magictrix...great observations, you are very astute, and you pissed off the icon troll in the process which is always a plus.

note to self..
Put "trolls" on your list of overused Topix/Offbeat lingo..

Trolls are what we make them,,we can feed them, pet them.. throw rocks at them..and allow them space.. or we can ignore them and do our thing... OR...we can throw a morsel here and there, for a laugh..no need to cry about em, we control them..
and topix pays them..
