:>September 21, 1999
:>For immediate release:
:>The new Trolling Point System for Trolls has been approved by the
:>Central Troll Committee for Troll Standards and Procedures. The new
:>TROLL POINT SYSTEM (TPS) will take effect on October 1, 1999.
:>10 points Killfile: Being Killfiled is the highest honor and the most
:>points a Troll can achieve. It represents complete victory and
:>indicates that the Troll has performed on a MASTER TROLL level.
:>9 points Complaint to Trolls ISP: While not as good as being
:>killfiled, a complaint to a Trolls ISP indicates that once again the
:>TROLL has struck hard and deep.
:>8 points Death Threat: Another indication of a Master Troll at Work.
:>The death threat is firm proof that the Troll has cut to the bone and
:>left his victim (the fish) floundering and gasping for air.
:>7 points Personal Verbal Attack: A personal verbal attack on a Troll
:>in response to a trolling post indicates that the Troll has riled and
:>disturbed the fish in question.
:>6 points Plea to Ignore Troll: A Plea from a Forum Group member to
:>other group regulars to ignore the Troll in question is a sure sign that
:>the Troll is doing his/her sport with proficiency.
:>5 points Killfile response: When a poster who has claimed to have
:>KILLFILED a particular Troll, then responds to another Post by the Troll
:>in question, rates a solid 5 points for the Trolls ability to snag a
:>4 points Logical response: A person who responds to a Troll trying to
:>use logic and reason to rebut a Troll is worth 4 points for such
:>stupidity as to think a Troll cares about what they have to say.
:>3 points 10+ individual responses: When a post by a Troll gets at
:>least 10 responses from 10 different individuals.
:>2 points Positive response: If a Troll gets a positive response such
:>as ROFLOL: LOL: Great Post, etc.
:>1 point Any type of response at all.
