    Hi everyone, I've been browsing this forum for about 4 years and finally got involved with discussions a year ago. I like having sensible discussions with like-minded people about MMA, but there is a lot of jerks on Sherdog who make it unpleasant to be here.

    I know some of you feel the same. Some posters don't ever have anything good to say, it's just insult after insult for no reason. I know most of these people are children, but there should be a way to rid this site of them. I have an idea.

    If we all band together, we can make Sherdog a more pleasant, and respectable place. Right now, because of all the assholes that post here, it is not respectable. So here is my idea.

    When we enter a thread, we will read the posts, and the very first post that insults the TS, or if the TS is insulting someone, we all put them on ignore. That way, if no one ever responds to these assholes, they'll quit posting, and/or we won't be able to read what they ever say again anyway.

    Let's start ignoring people who are just posting bullshit, insults, bashing, or anything else. The occasional flame is ok, but some people that is all they do.

    So, if everyone does this, it will be good for everyone on this site that cares about Sherdog and MMA.

    Thanks guys, please join me. :icon_chee

    People will never ignore the trolls because they love arguing with them too much. And the more immature or ignorant of Sherdoggers don't recognize half of them as trolls and instead take them seriously.

    The best way to rid the board of trolls, assholes, and morons is to PM the mods as soon as you see rule infractions taking place.

    good idea but you would be ruling out 75%+ of the people in any given thread.

    And anyone who does an ENTRANCE MUSIC thread should have to wear an ankle bracelet so we can find them at all times!

    You are correct. I have been here since 2001. And the last two or three years have just been sad.

    This was a great forum with great discussions, and most of the top fighters joined us in discussions. (I remember a great thread with Josh Barnett after he won the UFC title)

    I was off for about a year and a half 2004-2005 and when I returned it was really bad here.
    It has degenerated into a High School "punk" match.

    I have been told it has been since TUF started. I have never watched an episode as I live in Asia, so I am not quite sure why, other than many original gangsters here have told me that TUF brought in a lot of the teenagers, etc?

    Not sure your idea would work. I, for one, don't believe in the ignore option. I think it is hopeless and most of us regulars will eventual move on and Sherdog might well become a relic and a joke (I sure hope not, though) I have complained to the BIG DOG and others about what has become of this once great site.....but I think they feel helpless too.

    (Another theory, I have is that many sherdoggers have adopted the attitude and fighter bashing style of Dana?)

    I have been told

    You say the occasional flame is alright. But if you're ignoring every flame then you will be ignoring people for their "occasional flames".

    You can try it but i'm not going to.

    See, I was being serious, and to some people it's important. I figured I'd get some replies to start off my ignore list. Like I said, if we all join together, we can make Sherdog better. Here's a few to start ignoring. Technomance and Meekaveli. It's a start. Think about it, please.

  10. I agree with the TS. Especially people that spam this site with porn pics. Get a life losers! I come here to talk MMA, not to look at your pathetic expressions of angst.

    kidding. Not a bad idea. Sherdog is WAY better now than it used to be.

    The only solution will be to prevent Whitebelts from starting threads.

    That should take care of about 75% of the trolling.

    I think every whitebelt posts something like this at first about how they get their feelings hurt...then as they go up the ranks they become assholes just like the rest of us...

    Since we are on the subject, I think alot of shedoggers might just need to get LAID or something. Might clear their heads a little.

    Or, how bout limit no more than 10 post AVG per day. It kills me to see the orange belts achieved in one month. Cracks me up.

    The only way to cut down the trolls is to avoid (nomatter how tempting it is) posting in their shitty threads. We have all been sucked in now and again but the people who type "don't feed the trolls" or "1/10" are the worst, they should now better than to hit them TTT. Sometimes just looking at the thread title should tell you enough so as not to open it.

    Some higher power could make a decent thread about those trolling whores, sticky it and we could all try and be disciplined but I'm guessing this has been tried before so the fuckers are here to stay.

    Bingo!

    Though I do find it funny when people post that they have put someone on their ignore list...

    I think if you flame people in an educated way it would be ok. Back it up with facts or opinion. Dont just say "you're an idiot"
