Cut off the Trolls

May 20, 2019 | 14:55 1 Can the moderator cut these TROLLs off from this forum, they have totally wrecked Agriville. I hardly stop on this site any more because of these idiots. They aren’t even farmers just a few organic earth muffins living in their parents basements.
Chuck chuck
Austrandia
And a few others
Cut them off already!! Reply With Quote

  • Blaithin's Avatar May 20, 2019 | 16:38 2 I’m not sure if I’d be included as I’m not regularly active on here... however I do enjoy many of ChuckChuck posts which probably means I’d fit in that group LOL

    I wasn’t aware this was a conventional, can only farm one way, must have a larger operation, must have the same opinion as everyone else, kind of forum. Perhaps if you only want to hear people who think like you, you should stick with talking to yourself? When you venture out into the world you’re bound to run into people who think differently than you and if you expect them all to stay silent and bow to your views so that your day isn’t ruined well.... I’m worried that you’re bound to be disappointed.

    The internet and forums are great for exposing us to new things that can make us think. If you don’t want to do that, perhaps use an ignore or block function so that you only listen to people you like. What’s a troll to you can be informative to others. Reply With Quote

  • SASKFARMER's Avatar May 20, 2019 | 17:02 4 We have only one troll and it is Astradand or what ever he goes by. This one has caused this site to lose followers. Now I like grass he is a dedicated liberal and all is good. Chucky is trying and once and a while I enjoy. That’s the fun of a public forum.

    Again it’s one and it’s Astrand Reply With Quote

  • Blaithin's Avatar May 20, 2019 | 17:13 5 Can't say I've ever read any of Austrawhoever's posts. He's never started a thread with a title that caught my attention enough to bother and I have a politics filter where if anyone even mentions something remotely political I seem to haze out and read nothing/nothing sinks in, if that's some of the stuff he talks about.

    If I was on more maybe Chuck would get annoying as well, but if I was on more I'm sure others would get annoying as well Hah

    I've found with forums every now and then I just need to take a break. It can be tiring hearing the same old, same old on repeat. Hopefully people don't leave just because of one user and instead just take breaks to refresh themselves.

    Does this forum have an ignore/block option? I've never looked. Reply With Quote
    May 20, 2019 | 17:30 6 Just block them and never feed the trolls.

    I blocked austrand long ago, chuck chuck is getting close to getting blocked, I dont mind grassfarmer at least he contributes some relative material, and enjoy his arguments with sf3.

    I wish this site would not let me see replies made to blocked users or accidentally landing on their threads when i hit NEXT thread without knowing what thread is next. Reply With Quote

    May 20, 2019 | 18:06 8 While they are frustrating. The odd time good points are made even though I don't agree with most of what they say.

    I have taken the odd vacation from Agriville and have had my own bozo eruptions at times.

    You do have to say they are nothing if not persistent. Reply With Quote
    May 20, 2019 | 18:47 9 I don’t have the time or desire to feed trolls. However, letting someone run on with complete bullshit without being checked is another thing. It’d get boring if we all agreed on everything. My biggest quam with a lot of the dissenters is they’re out to pick fights more than anything. Reply With Quote
    May 20, 2019 | 19:04 10 I don't have the attention span to read the long posts pasted in a thread...its a free country ...I try to avoid threads with long shit unless someone else has added something.... Reply With Quote
    May 20, 2019 | 20:19 11 To bad Chucky can only post on one issue and the long cut and paste articles that no one reads. He says he is a farmer and I believe he is but why won’t he post anything Ag related or post s farming pic of any kind? It could add credibility to him Reply With Quote

    Chuck is a very disgruntled former CWB hard core advocate that resents independent thinkers. It is what it is. Also despises modern large grain farms as do many shit disturbing posters here lol.
    It’s life , there are some that just want every single farm to be 2500 acres, all farm the same way , get the same money for the grain so no one ever gets ahead of the other neighbor lol . Well that time has past long ago along with many other socialist ideals. Sorry chuck . This is a free country, and the wheat board is gone and we can farm as we please now . Get over it Reply With Quote

  • May 20, 2019 | 22:24 13 I think the trolls morph into other trolls. They don’t add any value to a farming forum except to attack and continually aggravate. I vote to turf em. They add no value to my days. Reply With Quote

  • May 20, 2019 | 22:56 15 Point out someone that hasnt made political comments,should we all just bow to those who seem to think they are the chosen ones,sounds like an old boys club if you get what you are asking for.
    Do as I say not as I do. Reply With Quote
    May 21, 2019 | 00:15 16 It’s all opinions. I don’t know why someone would block anyone at all. Just don’t read the post if it annoys you.
    Sensorship really would be not good. If everyone that only had the same view was allowed to post what would be rhe point of a discussion forum? May as well call it the dictation forum instead. Get you dose of one sided brainwashing.
    Can’t think of one poster that hasn’t at least at times posted some good points. Reply With Quote

    May 21, 2019 | 06:40 18 Welcome to the real world where shockingly, people are entitled to have their own opinions on a public discussion forum and can choose what they want to discuss.

    Put five farmers in a room and you will get seven opinions.

    If you want only to listen to like minded people crawl back into your cave and start your own private chat group.

    Even if you don't agree with someone points of view it is interesting to see the the thinking or lack of thinking that goes in to different perspectives. If you are never challenged to defend your opinions, you don't exercise the grey matter.

    It seems as if a lot of people on this site are incapable of debate and just want to have their own views reinforced.
    I guess its easier to just shut off other ideas than it is to to defend arguments with evidence.

    May 21, 2019 | 07:11 19 I disagree. Anyone who wants to engage in factual discussions should be welcomed even if its a differing view point. Thats all good. The guys on AV arent even close to being trolls even if they have unconventional theories. Spend a day on another forum like twitter or cbc and you will see some whack troll stuff from some very fringe groups. I cant see anyone who has a connection to farming having much in common with those nut jobs.

    Soon chuck will have to see the genius of trump and come over to our side. Reply With Quote

    Right on Jazz. I like Agriville because you can find evidence to backup your arguments and include articles, references, graphs, images, links, etc. The local coffee shop is good if you just want to talk about the weather, neighbors and express a few mild opinions. But Agriville has far more in depth discussions where you can come and go and not forget what you or the other guy said! Plus most of us are too busy to make it to coffee row. Reply With Quote

    Ban or censor someone but nothing stopping them from doing what BTO did.

  • May 21, 2019 | 09:00 23 Breadwinner, has started this type of tread several times accusing posters of being trolls and labeled me as being one as well. So nothing new from him!

    Everybody is entitled to post their own opinion and it's up to the Administers of Agriville to monitor the site.

    If coming on Agriville upsets you because of differentiating opinions you most live in a bubble or lived a very sheltered protected life.

    One solution, don't read Agriville! Reply With Quote

    Wasn’t he a disenchanted Hutterite? His posts were entertaining. Then there was Burbert. Did he die or get a job with the NDP. Two diametrically opposite viewpoints there but both radical and trolish at times. Still had points to make. Reply With Quote
    May 21, 2019 | 10:28 26 Post such as this Just make us look bad. Don't lower yourselves to the level of the "tolerant " radical leftists, For whom Banning free speech, disallowing Open debate, and Silencing anyone who disagrees with them Are hallmarks of their belief system.

    The Trolls and useful idiots deserve equal opportunity to prove their ignorance of science, economics, agriculture, and human nature as the rest of us. Reply With Quote

    Look in the mirror. And when you are not to busy spouting useless rhetoric of no substance post some evidence to back up your opinions. If you are not too busy that is? LOL Reply With Quote

    Aren't you feeling ungrateful today. Half of agriville is rallying to have you evicted, and I come to your defense, and that is the thanks I get? I even made a post a while back where I specifically thanked you for brining your unique perspective and gathering news sources to keep us informed as to what the enemies of industry free markets and progress are plotting.

    farmaholic's Avatar May 21, 2019 | 13:11 29 What bugs me more than anything is how little marketing based discussions there are. Fucken Climate change, politics and some other stuff unrelated to marketing/farming.

    The crusade against conventional farming is getting old too.

    I know I've contributed my share of useless drivel to this forum as well.

    Best of luck everyone, with the 2019 crop and marketing it. I know I could have done alot better job of marketing the 2018 crop..... I dare NOT calculate the money left on the table. Coulda shoulda woulda Reply With Quote

    Agree, marketing, market analysis, Market movers, grain price forecasts/influences, crop conditions, maybe weather/ rain, BUT NO F*ING CLIMATE CHANGE DOOMSDAY SCARYING US TO RUN AND HIDE! Just as religion/cult/LGBTQ/abortion issue, keep your beliefs to your self. Nobody will change his/her mind.
