We know what a Troll is, but what is an E-knight? From the Urban dictionary an E-knight is
” A term generally used to describe a forum poster who defends other posters for any number of reasons. The term eknight refers to Electronic-Knight.
They rise to the defense of the person being insulted, much like a Knight would rise to the defense of a weaker man/woman in the olden days.”
Apparently back in the days of the Knights of the round table, they had rules.
The only ones I could find to apply to forum E-knighting would be
“When called upon, to defend the rights of the weak with all one’s strength”
Let people have a voice, have their say, and speak their part without fear of persecution – defend this right
“Not to attack one another”
“Whether in honour or disgrace, to make a report with the greatest fidelity to truth to those who keep the annals
Keep the forums true and honest
Maybe we need more E-Knights – not people who troll the trolls, but people who uphold what the original intent of the forums, and defend the righteous from ‘evil trolls’
They could even take their quarrels out to the Tourney.
We already have a tourney in the Argent Crusade. ” You hast offended this thread. I challenge you to a duel.”
