    The Trouble With Trolls



    An "Internet troll" or "Forum Troll" is a person who posts outrageous message to bait people to answer. Trolls delight in sowing discord on the forums. A troll is someone who inspires flaming rhetoric, someone who is purposely provoking and pulling people into flaming discussion. Flaming discussions usually end with name calling and a flame war.

    A classic troll tries to make us believe that he is a skeptic. He is divisive and argumentative with need-to-be-right attitude, "searching for the truth", flaming discussion, and sometimes insulting people or provoking people to insult him. A troll is usually an expert in reusing the same words of its opponents and in turning it against them.

    While he tries to present himself as a skeptic looking for truth ... his messages usually sound as if it is the responsibility of other forum members to provide evidence that what forum is all about is legitimate.

    He (and in at least 90% of cases it is he) tries to start arguments and upset people."

    Re: Thinking of leaving UPS ?????

    You're right...we've been complacent.
    We have become so dependant on Over9five and Tieguy to root out the trolls that we have become derelict in our responsibilities.
    I am shamed -
    This is obviously a troll, troll, troll.

    Re: hello

    You may even be called a troll, if you post something that "certain" people disagree with. Not to worry, though, we're all one big happy family here.

    Is a troll good or bad?

    I really do care about those sales leads. My own district is the "Least Best" in my region. I hate that title! :angry: but have so little control over it as an admin, from BD at that.

    I was shocked to read that so many drivers hated the program, that in my opinion, was built as way of rewarding them for finding new business that they see out there everyday.

    So, am I a troll? :peaceful:

    Re: Is there anybody at the wheel at UPS that can pay attention to the real world?

    Sorry Pobre Carlos but I have to agree with iowa boy, you are a troll. Anybody who posts on a website, that has as it's primary members those who are Teamsters (or those who depend on the Teamsters labor), essentially anti-union propaganda (I know, I know you are not anti-union and what you say is not propaganda) is begging for a fight.

    It's akin to a Chevy guy posting on a Ford forum that Ford stands for "Found On Road Dead". Or calling Mustangs "Disgustangs" or "Rustangs".

    And even if there is occasionally a shred of truth in your ramblings you are not going to get through by beating people over the head with your opinions (again, I know, you call them facts) or insulting them.

    That being said, and though I have found you to be the most exasperating poster I have ever encountered at the Brown Cafe, you do serve a useful purpose. You allow those of us who fundamentally disagree with you a sounding board to bounce our ideas off of. Though, and not to be insulting, you have not won me over in the slightest, I have read some very interesting posts by other posters that have further reassured my own beliefs.

    And for that I thank you.

    So you see, no matter what your goal is here on these fine forums, if it might have been (which I highly doubt) to further unite my fellow union brothers and sisters, you are indeed accomplishing your goal.

    I await an interesting, and snide, remark :peaceful:.

    Funny how the troll completely ignores your posts. You would be better off spending that 1minute of your time doing something worthwhile, of course who am I to tell you how to spend your valuable time.

    It has been clearly established , by his own actions, that fedex4life is a smuck and a troll.

    re: brownbailout = propaganda that misleads the public

    IMO, he's a troll. Not smart or eloquent enough to be management and too many factual errors regarding FedEx to be credible.

    Remember when that first troll signed on and I warned him/her? That was the original contention.

    Re: Illegal Anti-Union Meetings

    You are sounding more and more like a troll with every post, but I'll bite on this one. Management is required to be "neutral" and cannot actively advocate either for or against unionization.That's why the verbage of the anti-union meetings is so carefully FedEx Legal. By calling them "information sessions" and controlling the content so the senior manager cannot deviate from the script, he/she cannot wander off into the land of the illegal.

    IMO, they're not legal, and according to both the RLA and the NLRA they're not legal either. FedEx isn't supposed to be actively anti-union, but they have been for 36 years and counting. You're kind of slow, but have you ever wondered why Fred always has this exact same comment when asked about unionization of FedEx Express. "FedEx is not against unions in any way". That covers him legally. The reality is something else that you choose to ignore.
