How to rid Mania of trolls. Permanently.


1) Ignore them - Common sense, I know, but not feeding the trolls does make them go away.

2) Call them out - This method tends to get others involved. Sure, kicking the kid with the meat helmet on repeatedly is always fun, but this usually encourages them to maintain the behavior that invited the ass whooping. Why? Because this is the internet and we don't get to really beat the fucker down.

3) Flag the fucker into a perma ban - I know. This violates every fucking fiber of a real Maniac's being, but it's the only real defense we have against these pieces of shit. If every time Jesse & Co. login, they have 15 flags to deal with from the same troll, then they will eventually ban him. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Since I know that none of you (except Taiter) have ever used the flag option, you may not know how it works. I braved the unknown and took the plunge when I witnessed a particularly fucking retarded comment by the resident troll king, mathias1 in reference to Scott Coker.

mathias1 was formerly Dragon_Machida. We ran him off by ignoring him and marginalizing his every word. He's returned with a vengeance. He always takes the high road to try to make you feel as if you're wrong for telling him he's a fucking idiot. As if you simply don't respect his opinions and you're a social Neanderthal. Every time I open a thread this asshole is in, I end up doing this:

I'm sick of coming to Mania to unwind and enjoy some MMA debate only to get sucker punched by the most calculated dose of fucking stupidity ever conceived. I'm sick of it, so fuck him. I'll keep fucking him with flags, and you can as well.

Here's how you do it:

Step 1: Identify troll:

If you miss his first comment that makes Maniacs want to curb stomp his fucking face in, you can always identify him by one of his snark riddled high road comments about how simple intolerant you must be to not accept his behavior:

Step 2: Click flag (Seen above). This results in the following screen. I know, you're nervous and this is new to you, but let me guide your hand and we'll get through this together, OilCheck style. Click the pull down menu to the right of "Reason:" and select "troll."

Step 3) Enter a reason and click SUBMIT. I recognize that by the time you get to this point, you will probably be completely exhausted. It's like fucking a fat girl. You don't mind getting a nut, but afterwards you feel dirty and hope to God that no one ever finds out. So you can use exactly this template to ensure they are properly reported:

I know this has been hard for many of you to accept, but at my wit's end, I feel it is the only way. I've been working my ass off for two weeks and barely had time to check in. But when I do, all I see is this fuck head shitting all over threads and dragging us into shit discussions that are typically grossly off topic. Do the right thing, be a MANiac, and flag this shit head until he's sick of coming back with different personas and he stays on google cached copies Gal's Guide to MMA or whatever shitty MMA blog he attended before he failed at being a Maniac.
