Trolls V E-Knights


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.”
I got this term from reading a forum thread where someone was  told to stop E-Knighting, and go play the game.
I like this idea of E-Knights
Could you be an E-Knight?
What better opposition for   a Troll.  Someone who defends the poster.  Not Trolls it.

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”

Don’t.

“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.”

** Note.  Urban dictionary also gives as an example of E-Knighting
“the most common occurrence is when a guy is sticking up for a girl, possibly in hopes of starting a relationship or at least trading pics via email

I would like to think – that if said guy was sticking up for said girl, it would be because he was being chivalrous. Ha.  Who am I kidding.

    WTB Personal E-Knight. Will email you links to the pictures on my blog.

    LOL. That’s great. I’ve been guilty of this before, just because my background in philosophy emphasizes the “Principal of Charity” and “of Loyalty.” (stay true to the intent of what was written, and try to read it in the best light)

    Based only on your picture, I vote for the trolls.

    I saw a troll post on the Frostmourne forum get e-knighted by another well known Frostmourne troll.

    Go figure?
