The Downfall of RSP :-(

Post by A » Sun, 13 Feb 2000 04:00:00


I haven't been around in the last few week, but lately, I have been noticing
almost more spam and junk posts than actual posts. In addition, there are many
repeats, crossposts, and even worse, flame wars.

This is not what RSP should be. Its really a shame it has to be ruined for all
by a select few who feel the need for attention so bad that instead of getting
it in life by having friends, they need to go onto a newgroup and excessively
spam and/or troll.

These excessive disturbances, if not remedied, will cause most of us to seek
another NG, or worse.

I'm gonna take a few weeks off, I hope it gets better, because right now this
NG is in real danger of failure.

Yea.  I agree with AJ.  What's up with all these people screwing around?  Why
can't we all just get along?  We are all paintballers, out for a good time!!
Let's not *** our NG over!

this newsgroup is in no danger of failure, ive been here about year and half
now, and we've been through this countless times....just use your
newsreaders filter and you dont have to read any of the spam/crossposts...

It's a temporary thing, some ***s feel the need to disrupt communication.
They tried before, and failed. Ignore them, keep posting good, real
content, and they will go away.

The newsgroup is NOT in danger of failure.  It is in danger of failure
if people who post on it decide it's in danger of failure.

If you want to leave, tehn I can't stop ya.  But just remember that
there's only 2-3 morons out there who are trolling the group, and
they're hitting paintball becasue we have a track record of getting a
"reaction" of fighting back.  Think if it as a 12 year old who beats up
his sister to get the attention of grownups.

Let it go, the 12 year old will stop.

But alas, It is not people of our group. But some idiot others. They
were feeling woefully inadequate with those recent denial of service
attacks so the figured it was time to come back and fail again. But
unfortunately they have relearn that they have failed.

Quitter.
This has happened before. We went on. The group is still here.
Your leaving is just one more small victory for the idiot trolls. And
for that, I regard you about as highly as them.

I am not leaving. I will just simply stop posting for a while, because it
really is insane when good, on-topic posts become lost in line after line of
spam. When the spammers leave, I will once again start actively posting.

[snip]

This newsgroup has been attacked several times, for example by racist mutant
scumballs who wanted to spew their sewage here, and more recently by
emotionally unfulfilled losers who apparently hang around a lot in the pro
wrestling newsgroup and who want to create flame wars between their
newsgroup and others.  Needless to say the morons behind this sort of thing
must lead truly pathetic lives to get any kind of satisfaction from this
kind of vandalism.  Clearly the normal sources of satisfaction -- a
rewarding and challenging job, a family, friends, participating in sports, a
sex life, etc. -- are not available to them, so instead they become internet
vandals.  How pathetic.

These clowns have only as much power over you as you give them.  Let's say
you check into r.s.p. and there are several dozen troll posts from that
birth-control-failure who calls himself sabu424 (ever notice these losers
rarely have the guts to use their real names?).  So what?  Nobody can force
you to read any of these messages, all you have to do is scroll past them,
or you can even figure out how to filter them so you never see them at all.
But why let these half-wit losers drive you away from your newsgroup?  They
are at most a petty annoyance, don't let them get to you, because that's the
only way they can win.

Wait. Let me try to clarify this. You're suggesting to the spammers that
they try their luck with a supposedly godlike newsgroup?
