Because she cares about him as an ACTOR!  Did you miss that part buried under all the insults?  And anyway, why is it weird to spend your free time discussing someone you find old and unattractive?  My friends on the Abe Vigoda's Open House Forum beg to disagree.  Thumbs up! 

It's just that I found this forum really fun. I've never seen women so fanatical and blind with attending here.

Never had so much fun Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy 
The GC fans attending this Forum are worse than the fans of Justin Bieber and are far from to be teens Shocked

And whilst you continue to make snarky comments about George's fans you glaringly keep forgetting one thing... YOU keep coming back and commenting here too.

The fact that the irony of that escapes YOU amuses me to no end!

Definition of a troll: someone who's life is so empty that they actually need the attention they get from coming on websites and making provocative statements because that's the only attention they get. Ignore and move on.

Katiedot, what concerns me is why you would start a thread about Angie's comments regarding George and Amal's engagement being a PR strategy and about her opinion that George is gay, as opposed to calling her out for being bigoted, hateful and incredibly rude towards Amal?
I mean, if you feel the need to call her out, wouldn't the latter be much more offensive and a more important reason to do so?
It certainly is to me. Why not just ban her?
I'm genuinely asking.

Because I'm a hippie and heart and censoring posts just because I don't like them isn't my style*. If she wants to sound off on her conspiracy theories, or 'George is gay' theories, then let her. She'll find plenty of people here who can take her nonsense apart.

Crackpot theories are fine, always have been, as long as crackpot theorists understand they're going to be laughed at.

* I try to limit censorship here to abuse or anything that's libellous or breaks the house rules.

No worries sparkie I went off on her and got moderated by katie too! HA!

So let's all make a pact.

Trolls get no responses. We just SKIP over their comments and pretend they never happened.

As it says in the rules - there is no rule that says you HAVE to respond to another poster.

If the poster's comments start to ignore the forum rules, the mods will just edit the posts as necessary.

As katie said, we're trying to avoid censorship but we also won't put up with posters abusing other posters.

If the mods believe a comment is libelous the comment will be removed.

I knew that I would be called out on what I said.

I made the fatal mistake of being so offended on behalf of all COH members. And for that reason only I am sorry, will never make that mistake again.

No worries Sparkie. For what it's worth I laughed my head off when I read your post.

Lorna.....Re what you said here....
"Trolls get no responses. We just SKIP over their comments and pretend they never happened"




Are we going to be told clearly who is a troll so that we don't feed them ?
I think that would be helpful in the future thanks.

I think this is a good idea. Especially for some of the newbees who aren't familiar with the mannerisms of the trolls. Might save some headaches and heartaches down the road...

Here are some hints on troll-speak:

"contract relationships"

"PR puppet"

"ugly amazon"

"gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay"

"George fans are...." insert any derogatory term

There are more signs but we'll keep those for the use of the mods.

Go to IMDB and check out the rantings on there it will give you some clues.

And one last comment to the troll - me thinks thou dost protest too much!  

HA!

Ok, there seems to be some confusion about trolls in general and the IMDb nutjob, who's in a league of her own.

Trolls in general are easy to spot. They come to a website as newbie posters and write something inflammatory, often insulting other members of the site.  They're looking for an argument and nothing delights them more than getting a response.  They behave this way because their real lives are empty so this kind of attention, even though it's negative, is better than the nothing they usually get.  Small and powerless in real life, the anger they generate from their posts gives them a sense of importance and strength.  These kind of trolls are easy for everyone to spot.  Best to ignore them.

Our own troll (aka the IMDb nutjob) is another type of troll altogether.  She's an obsessed fan who's convinced herself that she's George's soulmate and will be marrying him.  She tells herself crazy stories in order to convince herself that he's not cheating on her with Sarah/Elisabetta/Stacy/Amal/whoever, such as he's being forced to do this or that photos are photoshopped/greenscreened and so on.  Her ramblings are that there's a secret reason behind why he's fake-dating these women (and now fake-engaged to).  Lorna's mentioned in her post above the most common signs.

The IMDb nutjob posts under a number of names here and initially comes across as convincing and plausible, and even likeable.  There are about half a dozen posters here I keep an eye on, although lately two of them seem to have announced they're not coming back here any more.

However, not every conspiracy theorist is our nutjob and it's possible for perfectly normal posters to share some of the nutjob's opinions.  I'm not interested in starting a witch hunt or creating an atmosphere of distrust or paranoia between posters.
