Sansa85 :  Oh dear, it seemed that I have been MIA on the best, dramatic days. I have no qualms in admitting that I would have loved to see the horrible, nasty, scary thread, simply because I keep hearing about it, and it’s raising my curiousity to unsurmountable levels. apparently it was social media related.

The rash of posts yesterday by the same troll apparently stealing the husband just didn’t cut it. It was too obvious.

I can never get google cache to work but maybe someone else can. Does google cache not work on phones?

babygrandmabee :  Because this is a for profit site that generates revenue, why should any of them volunteer for free? Mods on a site like this are paid employees, I have a job I don’t need another one.

 I have all the reply e-mails in my junk, I could probably put it all back together. Why I followed that thread I don’t know I basically just sat there and hit refresh while I drank my wine. My poor junk mail, I hope there isn’t anything useful buried amongst the notifications.

We do seem to be having a spate of trolls right now, they are getting easier to spot, too!

But all kinds of posts come in waves. There have been times the boards were choked with questions about memorials, kids at weddings, and the perennial, waiting; then none for awhile. Now we have a lot about rings and peesticks to look at.

Sansa85 : bahaha… You called it the day of a dumpster fire. I called it the day of the flaming dog turd… 💩

Potato… Potatoe…

To refer to the swearing on the TOS. You can swear in general but you can’t call people swear words…

Eg:

it’s been a bitch of a day = OK

Cmsgirl is a bitch = may be true but its not OK as per TOS 😜

daisy123 :  

Google cache only catches so much. The thread was only up for a short amount of time.

This page, and the legend of the day of the dumpster fire/flaming dog turd is all we have 😭

The term troll is casually thrown around on WB is if it just means ‘someone who annoys me’. A real troll is a very different animal. I personally don’t even think Jessiquah was a troll, I think the original was a real girl. I hope she’s OK, wherever she is.

Sansa85 :  My hope for that thread was that the OP would accidentally reply from their real account and be outed.  That would have been epic.  A thread for the centuries.

twentytwenty :   Wikipedia defines an internet troll as: “Someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.”

Does that remind you of someone?

greywacke :  nope, but I also don’t know what threads you’re talking about because I haven’t been monitoring WB. I come here when I’m researching etiquette or planning for my best friends wedding, and fall into other posts while I’m at it. There is one user who randomly comments insults without context on people’s posts… glimmering something 86 maybe… and who randomly called me racist last week, she’s the only one I’d class as a troll.

babygrandmabee :  Can we even do that? I feel like I would be a pretty cool mod, albeit probably pretty useless but cool nonetheless.
