Don't Feed The Troll! (Video: How To Behave On A Forum)

by Chris Vendilli 11 replies
I was goofing off on Digg today and came across this hilarious video that should be required viewing for anyone who is new to an internet forum.

I'm trying to figure out a way to make this part of the registration process on one of my sites that has a forum!!

Check it out:



Moral of the story:
Be excellent to each other!

    Yeh. I agree, LOL


    Fun stuff ;D That's an excellent video.
    The first half doesn't really apply in this
    forum in my opinion but the second half
    is good, useful stuff that people should
    heed.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Yeah, I realized some of it doesn't particularly apply to the WF, but is mostly quite true of many forums in general.

    I had to post it since some of the stuff hit the nail on the head for WF. Like don't feed the troll, I thought that was great .

      Excellent.

      In an ideal world...

      This should be adopted by all ISPs so it's the first thing you HAVE to watch when you first get on the Internet. Then you should be forced to watch it periodically.

      But in an ideal world we wouldn't need it.

      Very funny.

      Your lens is like the inspiration behind this video methinks.

      I didn't create it, just introduced it to the Warrior Forum.

      I originally found it on Digg, but it's living on MetaCafe.

      I'm sure you can embed it in your Squidoo lens. I think if I try to give you the embed code it's just going to display the videos again in this post. But here it is on Digg, which should lead you where you need to go on MetaCafe if you'd like to include it on your lens:

        Oh, but flaming people is sometimes half my fun. I love targeting the 1d10t's who come on this forum declaring it to all be a scam.
