"i do not agree that trolls must be banned irrespective of what worldwide rules are.",
that which exactly of the above types do you think should not be banned and we can analyse each type differently

None of the above.

I give 10 minutes to admins of this forum to explain their unethical action.

Satish posted this elsewhere today.

Quote:Nirmukta community has some parallels to the open source communities. For example somebody who uses Linux, but doesn’t contribute anything to the community feels so entitled that he wants the community to do what he wants. At that point the community bluntly tells him to STFU and be the change he wants to be.

I like the parallel with the open-source world. The "committers" over there kind of map to admins over here -

Rajesh (this is Sunil btw) - so you think no trolls should be banned. Question for you then, something I asked Tiwari on the fb thread - are you a member/do you know of any freethought forum which does not ban trolls? What is it like? And how successful has that group been in achieving its goals?

This might be a good opportunity to practice on the list of types of trolls Lalit posted here and in subsequent posts. What type do you reckon this one is?

Affected Profundity Troll perhaps? "Pretentious drivel that is intended to appear wise, but which generally makes little sense (if any)".

Or we could introduce a new category of troll, called the Not Even Wrong Troll. smile

nice , i think we will have to invent some of our own since that list of trolls came from Phil Elmore, a martial arts instructor it has much to do with martial arts,
