Sad

Over on that wall thing there's a conspiracy theory brewing. 

Hard to fathom which is the saddest, the bullying clique mentality or the fact the poor sod has to hide behind a pseudonym in a vain attempt to avoid the former. 

Get real gang this is an obscure forum commenting on a dying platform. 

If it bothers you that much don't interact with whatever names he's currently using...but "ganging up" on someone is never a good look.
Ignore this if you disagree. Oh wait I just remembered I don't give a

    Sad that you are looking at people's walls!

    Now we know the difference between PM and wall. The wall is open to anyone to view messages.

    Strange as no-one knew what the wall was until a few weeks ago.

    These walls are not built of bricks though, so treat them as straw or wooden houses, waiting to be blown apart.

    But isn't that like getting caught bullying the ginger haired kid at school by the cctv and then your mum complaining about the use of said cctv? Sort of missing the point and not seeing the bigger picture.

    Before you make a grand statement such as this try searching this forum for "Samuel".
    There are 13 pages of results.
    Ask yourself why the later pages are blank.
    Read some of the conversations.

    Since 2013 there have been posts by someone using different names. Many of their posts are repetitive, argumentative, patronising, uninformed etc etc
    SAMUEL morphed into DJ BILINGS, and then over the years various other identities have emerged, usually with names in capital letters. Most of these have been dealt with by the moderators.

    Recently there was HONEST1.
    Look at this: https://community.youview.com/youview/discussion/comment/19012032
    Why was it that TIME4TV - supposedly a new member - went back to that thread?

    There is no conspiracy and this has nothing to do with bullying.

    @kodikid

    You can’t very well brew a conspiracy on YouView users’ walls.

    They’re public 😛

    And please do follow up on the references that @jimb has made, before nailing your colours to any sinking mast…..

    The only thing that WAS going on here was trolling but the mods dealt with him everytime. No one knows why but he keeps coming back after being banned multiple times and so is a repeat offender. That is all.
    I'm now happy with the disagree icon, because its gone.

    Banned for what exactly

    ...as the resident idiot can you explain to me what exactly constitutes a Troll. 

    No doubt the regulars on this site would consider me the latter. 

    Troll seems to be the go to word these days to describe those outside the inner sanctum or used to label those that dare express a minority or controversial view point .

    And my god as Visionman puts it he keeps coming back..the audacity of him daring to have a say.

    Perhaps he's determined not to let the bullies win even if every word he  writes is greeted with mockery and disdain. 

    Just feels so wrong.

    @kodikid

    I can’t put it better than this:-
    https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/troll
    “troll noun [C] (COMPUTING)
    someone who leaves an intentionally annoying or offensive message on the internet, in order to upset someone or to get attention or cause trouble.”

    That’s a world of difference from ‘those that dare express a minority or controversial view point’. (While ‘those outside the inner sanctum’ is just a straw man argument here, but let that pass).

    And it’s not that ‘every word he  writes is greeted with mockery and disdain’, it’s that if you will look, you will see that ‘every word he writes is filled with mockery and disdain’.

    The moderators here have decided, not us, and after due warning, have banned him. Not for daring to have a say, but for clearly just wanting to stir up trouble.

    As he is doing here, and will be pleased to see us arguing amongst ourselves.

    I don’t know about ‘resident idiot’ - ‘resident contrarian’ perhaps, though never troll - but sticking up for the indefensible certainly makes you a ‘useful idiot’, as the Russians have it for their apologists in the West, in this case.

    @Roy,

    I believe @kodikid is deliberately trying to wind us up, only it hasn't worked. If a user has a problem with another user being banned by the mods and then slaughtered for coming back he needs to take it to them, not us. Only he won't, IMHO.

    @Visionman @kodikid

    I am operating on the principle that @kodikid is sincere in what he says, but misguided, and this can be demonstrated to him.

    I hope I am right on both counts, but being right on the first count is more important.

    You didn’t take @kodikid’s slightly ambiguous ‘as the resident idiot’ to be referring to you, by any chance?

    I took it as him being self-deprecating…..

    No, I knew he was talking about himself. Or perhaps it was you?  :)

    For what can happen to a harmonious village affected by an outside source of disruption, you are cordially invited to read ‘Asterix and the Roman Agent’ (French: La Zizanie, "Discord"), if you can find it somewhere 😛
