    posts I missed I noticed several new names on the whose online list at the bottom of the main page. So wondering who they were I started clicking on them. Guess what, 6 trolls. Each registering as being in different countries, not the US, meaningless names, occupations have the country listed, denomination has the user name listed, home church all say 1234456, and statement of salvation all say something unusual like, government, or something about 'myself'.
    But their names kept disappearing and when I tried again to click on the ones still on the list it said I did not have permission to access that page.
    What does that mean?
    Obviously an admin is on the job, probably banning obvious trolls, or should I say troll (no s).
    Made me think, just how many times does this happen and we never know about it, because theres an admin on the job on the BB.

    Interesting observations donnA.

    Your title has fascinating possibilities as a movie.But you should have used an exclamation mark :Attack Of The Trolls!

    Maybe it's too late and I should just go to bed instead of watching for trolls, you think?

    #8m is from algeria,
    #9 is from chile, with a very normal looking name.
    #10 is from mongolia
    lets play spot the troll!

    I think I should go to bed now, don't you. I believe I could sleep now, now that I've caught 10 troll in one evening.

    This is a more than constant battle. Probably close to 100 appear every single day and have to be manually deleted one by one.

    Please don't go to bed, we need your eyes on "troll watch" so our community will be safe from the invaders... :laugh: :wavey:

    Seriously, good catch. I didn't notice them until now.

    Actually these are not trolls, but bots. Some are just bothersome, others are created as ad links, etc. Their main task is to get people to look at their profiles and click on their links. Often they are generated by p0rn sites or drug companies. But like I said, sometimes they are totally random

    They often are designed to get people to click on links that will load spyware or malware on their computers. They are not nice little pests.

    They really are amongst the worst invaders.

    A word to the wise - anyone made curious by this thread would be well advised to stay away. One click on a bot's link could create a real mess for you.

    Troll attacks are Scriptural

    I keep seeing Topics like these:

    1. Is Sunday School Scriptural?
    2. Is Sunday Worship Scriptural?
    3. Is Thanksgiving Scriptural? (Yes, one holiday that is Scriptural)
    4. (Etc, fill in the blank)


    Mat 12:43-45 (Geneva Bible, 1599 Edition, Words of Jesus Red by Ed):

    Nowe when the vncleane spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh throughout drie places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
    44 Then he saith, I wil returne into mine house from whence I came: and when he is come, he findeth it emptie, swept and garnished.
    45 Then he goeth, and taketh vnto him seuen other spirites worse then himselfe, and they enter in, and dwell there: and the ende of that man is worse then the beginning. Euen so shall it be with this wicked generation.


    QED: Troll attacks are Scriptural :type:

    I also do think some trolls got through. Why have 3 new members posting "preaching" posts as their first post in 2 days?

    I know on another board I go on, we're actually actively attacked for our conservative views. It's a game. "Get 1000 points for getting them to respond to your pro-gay post" and the like.

    It's sad that these people have such a pathetic life that they have to hurt others.

    Like C4K said, most of the ones with the numbers 123456 in their profiles are bots.. not trolls...

    bots are more dangerous...

    Trolls are easily spotted... they usually have the name annsni!!! lol

    BWHAHAhahahaha
