    Great!! NOT!
    I can FINALLY get into the chat room and the trolls are back.
    TONS of them.
    I've been looking for my Troll Spray, but can't seem to find it. :(

    Ridiculous. Write to admin. Obviously the "ignore them and they will go away" isn't working.

    It was a bit hard to get out of the room. Don't know what they are doing.

    I was talking to a friend of mine about it. He says it's probably a friend of a friend of someone's kid who comes in here that is doing it. Told him that I didn't think that was the case, since the people here are so good about protecting each other and the board.
    I just don't understand WHY they have decided to infiltrate our board.

    I had also explained to my friend that ignoring them wasn't working and he said that the sure fire way of them NOT getting on the board was to password the board or to make it private. Told him there were too many members to password the board and to even make it a private board, it's still a risk that "bad" people can still get in.

    Just a pain in the butt......

    What a shame about the troll(s). There were so many names I never was sure how many fake (or is that "flake) people out there!

    Chat is so lagged out now because of whatever they are doing, eventually it will just crash. This is ridiculous and the racial slurs they filled the screen with were horrible.

    So much for enjoying chat, at least till they go away or are dealt with.

    Thanks for this post. I just logged on to see the yellow pop-up chat box and just as I was about to click on it saw this thread. Guess I'll chat another day.

    I couldn't believe how many trolls there were in the chat! I could see that the "real" people couldn't even get a word in edgewise, so I didn't even say hi, and closed the window.
    Yucky trolls. :? :x :hunf: :evil: We definitely need a case of Troll repellent spray!

    I was in there when it happened. I was not sure what was going on. It's sad that it has to happen. I don't get to chat in there much.

    I've passed to Admin a suggestion someone made that might help. If he agrees to give it a try, it'll take a little while to put into action.

    hang in there, folks. there's a solution out there somewhere. :?

    Glad I was under the weather last night and didn't go into chat. The other night I thought there might be one on, but no one else said anything, so wasn't sure. Just don't understand why some want to make us miserable.

    yes I saw that myself for the brief time I was in last night. there were about 5 or 6 of the same name and in different colours. There was no conversation going on with them, but still..... I think we need to have some bouncers on the door....

    Shadow it lagged on my end alot last night.. maybe it was the trolls and not my connection.... I felt bad cause I was in the middle of a conversation with someone, and I hope they didnt' think I was being ignorant.... I just couldnt' get the chat to work last night. I would type up my messages and they never came up. I tried to send through an apology, but not sure if it was received. Shadow I know you were there last night when I was as you were talking about wanting to have my kitty Miss Mew, do you know if my messages ever came through after I disappeared??? I feel horrible the my conversations were left in limbo, but there was nothing I could do. :( :( :(
