Default RCUniverse Forum Rules

RCUniverse no doubt has rules that mirror RCGroups on paper. But I donít recall ever seeing a hidden post with a message that it will remain hidden until the poster changes whatever forum rule violation. Middle school schoolmarms checking hall passes. A "Trolling" violation is the biggest joke. The whole point of an online forum is getting a response positive or negative. Man up and answer it.

RCG has a point system. After a certain number of points that person gets a time out. After some more points they get shadowed IIRC. After more points itís banned forever loser. Ask Franklin how easy it is. He never violated any real rule that Iím aware of. They just didnít like him. Worse AMAers can name-call, post mocking GIFs and cartoons, whatever, and almost never get docked. Let a non-AMAer raise a pinky finger and itís a point.

There was an entire thread directed solely against Franklin RCG let stay up for 8 months, 144 pages. The thread was based on one article featuring Franklinís letter from the FAA that shot down AMAís forced membership scheme. Thatís the real reason Franklin got the boot.

Iím not sure what would get someone banned from RCUniverse after that fruit cake rampaged around here for days. And thatís fine if the alternative is the system at the other place. The only things worth talking about are controversial. And ERB videos. Got us off that FAA thread trainwreck did it not. How about that Billy Mays vs. Ben Franklin?!

The only thing Iíd change at RCU is the option to delete your own threads when they get out of control. Just closing them still wastes server space.

What is the purpose of trolling?
Trolling is when someone posts or comments online to 'bait' people, which means deliberately provoking an argument or emotional reaction. In some cases they say things they don't even believe, just to cause drama.

That's fine but not when it's your pals who decide what is "Provoking".

Your bold type I take as taking about me. You said your piece. Fair enough. But it sounds like you'd also like "Bob" on you side to teach me a lesson, No? Exactly how it works at RCG.

That post is a direct cut-and-paste from the Google. The bold type was already there.
I posted that as agreement to your manifesto but if you take it as talking about you so be it.

Why you took it this way is pretty obvious, why not just step up, apologize and move on?
No axe to grind, just a friendly suggestion.

Here's another friendly suggestion. You are a total non-contributor here, just parachute in every couple of months to lob an insult or 3.

Thanks ElectriMan. An other example of how something easy to convey in conversation is sometimes harder in print.

What is the point of all this? This forum has operated much the same way since I have been a member. Each site is different. All that is guaranteed is your choice to participate or not. One can also refuse to participate in the back and forth but if you do or object then you have probably made the antagonizers day. One has many choices choose one of them and be happy.

He regrets going full tilt, deleted his comments and then as he cannot get the posts edited where he was quoted, he then went after getting the thread deleted.
That didnít happen and so rather than manning up and taking responsibility for his outbursts and maybe apologizing, heís desperately trying other alternatives to hide his guilt.

Going Full Tilt is contributing?

Be a better self.

Hey Edge. Since you 're broken and and can't help yourself. Anything besides threats of violence or doxing is A-OK. And that's the way it should be. It will eventually work itself out.

My favorite motivation speech is The Dogs Bark but the Caravan Moves On. May want to add dull to that handle.

As for the Canadian guy, isn't CAN RC flying on life support? Maybe your focus should be on that.

These guys trying to dunk on me on my own thread. What's up with that. How about these bigshots start one of their own.

And so this thread demonstrates exactly what trolling is.
