There's a certain degree of respect that's needed on forums for it to be productive and beneficial for most people who participate. The issue is that when these problems continue on, it not only makes the forum difficult to have any discussion, but it discourages other posters from posting. This thread for example has clearly side-tracked.

Granted, most forums have a system of dealing with such issues, but it involves a moderator of which doesnt exist. In the given circumstances, we also know that ignoring people doesnt necessarily work on this forum. The trolls are still frequently visitors (assuming that they arent the same person using multiple accounts), and debates quickly turn into arguments. It's unfortunate to see the many good and productive members disappear over the years.

Granted that druno is a particularly destructive troll to the forum

Guys like superjean and buzzku troll, but along a particular bend. They are stubborn but you understand that they are pro-China, anti-Yao whatever. Stupid yes, but it's a point of view at least. They are at least making a semblance of an argument even if immature or hateful. They also have a modicum of human character in that they have a modicum of pride. At least they dont want to completely embarrass themselves and they can admit (if only by silence or leaving a thread) when they are wrong.

On the other hand druno has absolutely no stance other than to argue with pryuen. He doesn't care if he humiliates himself or posts absolute nonsense. For example he'll continue to post about hamburgers for literally YEARS even though poster after poster tells him to stop, and even though he in his heart knows it's trolling and complete nonsense.

He doesn't care about the forum or even the IDEAS he espouses. He only exists here to annoy pryuen and get some kind of sick affirmation of existence from him, like an abandoned son who wants to hurt his father even through abject humiliation of himself, daughter who wants to humiliate herself in porn to hurt her dad etc. Even if it's Pryuen posting in red font to chastise him it's a sort of sexual gratification for druno to even be addressed/recognized by his father figure. The rest of the community suffers.

Because of this he will stay on a thread even when he literally has no idea of what to post, so he goes to what he knows... baseless personal insults. He will continue to troll (actually troll even harder) when he's been completely humiliated. He will reject even universally known facts like acronyms and names of institutions.

Simply put he is destructive because of the sheer magnitude of his stupidity. Who wants to stay on a forum where a broken record says the same ****** over and over for YEARS on end? When you know every thread will end with him rolling dice and posting nonsensical insults over and over? On YMM every thread is 2 pages of discussion followed with 5 pages of druno throwing tantrums posting about In N Out and KANSAS U and KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY.

Even without druno this forum is slowly dying. Yao hasn't played in a year and it's been almost 10 years since he came into the league. Most guys who used to post here have gotten married, had kids, changed jobs, taken up new hobbies etc. It's unfortunate however that one of the oldest Chinese American related sports sites has been fallen to this state.

Yao Ming is coming back next season stronger than ever. Who cares what those anti-Yao Ming and anti-China bashers are saying?

I never thought of superjohn as a troll. I just thought he was retarded. Thanks for pointing that out.

And yes this forum has been dying for years now. There was a time when you could actually discuss basketball with actual fans. now it's mostly a bunch of people who know nothing.

yeah superjohn isn't strictly a troll. but he does say ****** solely to piss off pryeun though, which is trollish

overall I'd say everyone but pryuen is okay with superjohn. he posts some funny ****** sometimes although 90% of what he posts is retarded. you can tell he's got a sense of humor and probably is normal dude IRL

he's not a psychopath like druno, tangman or nig1 who clearly have issues.

We should not say pryuen is a troll. He just likes Yao Ming so much to the point where his extreme comments are so full of bias and prejudice. He likes to use bold and colored fonts, so as to prove that he is always right when he is ignorant of basketball and to attract attention. pryuen is just an arrogant fanatic of Yao Ming.

The real trolls here are psychopath drno, the China-hater buzzku and the anti-Chinese temuchin who hates to see a rising China.

It's possible to both love and hate a thing at the same time.

case in point superjean and pryuen.

he loves pryuen as an authority figure on Yao and China, always asking him questions, trying to get approval

he hates pryuen because he rebukes and mocks him for stupid questions.

what I was asking is he says buzz is a China-hater and I'm anti-chinese. seems to me that buzzku and I are different. wondering what the difference in his mind is of a "china hater" and "anti chinese."

I did not say there is or is not a difference. I was just using different words.
