Thursday filler.

1. Why don’t I get trolls? Do I write too little opinionated stuff therefore there is nothing to troll.  I don’t feed them enough? Do only real bloggers get trolls?  Maybe I need to give them more fodder.  Here have a Rogue.  ( inserts other inflammatory statements) ( Adds a little rage) ( a dash of righteous indignation)  

2. Fawkes wasn’t redemmed by the end of the season and I must reign in my foolish romantic notions that him and codex are meant to be together 4eva.  This handholding business with Zaboo seems a little fishy.  Though he did get her a new Pc which certainly is more practical than flowers and he has been consistently devoted so he gets lots of kudos. ( I ❤ The Guild)

3. Seeing referrals/link backs  from guild websites worry me a little when their forums are closed.  What are you saying about me?  /ends slight case of paranoia.

%  Apologies to the troll being fed this shinning example of a delightfully  wonderful character for any digestion issues they  may cause.

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.

Wow related relationship issue makes it to front page News.com.au

read
My Boyfriend is addicted to wow

I think its funny.
It smells like a troll

and 9 pages of Comments and an advice columnist response feed the troll.

( and if someone by chance finds this blog that is not forum savy: Troll is not a personal insult on K see Troll Wiki for definition)

Disclaimer: Addiction to WOW is real. Mana pots are not. ( for those Fallout 3 fans in oz.. Games’ Double Standards) “Fallout 3 was banned in Australia for its drug use” because we don’t have a +18 rating for games – They have since approved a lesser graphic version, but that is also funny.
