RSP isn't like the real world, people. In here, the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do something.

When your first thought after reading a post is, "man, nobody could honestly be that stupid," you're right. Trust your instincts. You are being trolled, and the person is deliberately wasting your time. Don't let them do that to you. (And for the love of all that is holey, don't reply, because now you're propagating their stupidity, and making the rest of us read it too.)

Once someone hits your own personal stupidity threshold, please block them. You will be happier. Everyone else will be happier. It's this easy:


Instead of this:

Oh, gross, we're shitting on the floor now?

You will have this:

Clean enough to fry an egg on!

Remember: even in RSP, talking about who is on your block list is an almost zero-tolerance offense; don't do it. No kidding. Hide User Posts

EDIT: lost an argument to Altair IV.

Needs better repeat steps.

I followed these steps in the image and I seem to have blocked all of Rusty's posts.

I come to RSP for... actually, I'm not sure what I come here for anymore, honestly, but I think it has something to do with that brief, flickering light of human reason.

I was thinking that. I mean, I don't like them, but I would rather see them and there's little point in blocking people with the current system anyway. It's not like Usenet where they just disappear. The single person on all of BGG I have blocked rarely posts in RSP and I simply cannot stand the painful format of his posting.

Prove it. (Should be easy, right?) If you can, I will be happy to change that to "almost zero-tolerance."

Yeah, I have poor impulse control though so once it becomes clear that constructive conversations aren't going to be possible with someone they go on the list just so that I don't waste my own time like an idiot. Jokes on me though, I still read and respond to their posts occasionally. What an idiot.

The important thing the OP misses is that everyone wins without the block. You get to think they're stupid and they get to think they're showing/tricking you.

Nuts. I concede, and I apologize for implying that you were talking out your ass.

I would never plonk anyone, ever, just because in order for anonymous chat bots to trigger my outrage meter they are probably going to invoke the wrath of Octavian sooner than later anyway, but I do like that this feature exists so that the people who complain about others have an alternative to whining in so many threads. Now if we could just get them to actually use it.

My initial instinct is to block anybody who can't spell "holy," but then I factor in whether or not they enjoy coconut rum, and if that answer is yes, then they're history.

Or using "loose" instead of "lose". It's longer for christ's sake*!

It would be virtually impossible to justify using the feature. I mean so many hard core batshit crazy posters still pccasionally have a post with some merit, humor, or value. So it is mind blowing to even think what it would take to justify using this feature. Mind boggling actually.

Someone please quote this so that MisterCranky knows I was chiding him for mistaking "won't" for "can't."

You don't need to quote this bit, which is my formal prediction that he will chide me for mistaking "knows" for "cares."
