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.

Oceanic Forums for Wow..

So us Oceananicans have our own forums now.. 

Um Why? –

So far 6 pages of Forum text has been filled with..  “Anyone from.. ”   and “Why do we have our own  forums”

So after wading through people looking for  various cities in Australia or Suburbs to ‘represent.. ‘  the question as to why? is remaining un answered.  Speculation and desire for our own servers here in Oz  are rampant. Complaints about lag, and Ping,   There is even a “All Aussies are criminals thread..”  guild recruitments and players looking for guilds  threads are just starting..  now this is in addition to our realm forums

I would have rather seen Server Specific guild recruitment forums,  not another place for random discussion.

Another Blizzard social experiment..?  Lets see what they do with it,  who will be the trolls that we love and hate on this forum,  will the regulars from the realm forums try and assert their trollness onto these forums? Who will start the  ” This is not a guild recruitment Forum.. ”  thread.

 It seems an odd thing to do..  unless we are getting more local servers…   – Please ! Pretty please with Vegimite, and Toast on top,  with Pavalova, and Kangaroos in the top Paddock..  Please or we will send a drop bear from the gumtrees to get you….   ( Jokes..   the drop bears aren’t dangerous!  )
