I'm introducing the "Ogre". Like a troll, but on drugs.

Oh, utterly banned. I didn't say so explicity since I thought it was obvious! Trolling and Ogreing is teh forbidden.

She wasn't trolling though. Trolling is flamebaiting in a very badly explicit manner. She was just advertising.

I'd have thought that going to random websites and advertising, would fall under "trolling" and hence "troll".

Nah, trolling is going around and posting with nothing but the explicit intent to cause flame wars (flamebaiting).

And yeah, advertisement is still illegal, but don't charge her/him/it/bob for something they didn't do.

We've always gotten those periodically. It happens, they get banned, all is well again.

Thanks for informing on what Trolling is defined as, but we could have said that their crime was "covering themself in ketchup", and however far that may be from the truth...they're still banned.

...okay, that made no sense whatsoever. Ignore Chik. x.x

Door-to-dooring, that's what they're doing.

Nonetheless, Vet was banning them for the action committed, not the term it is classed under. So it's not exactly "banning them for something they didn't do".

He defined the action as "Trolling" which is what he/she/it/bob wasn't doing...

And dammit, when the hell did I turn into the Devil's Advocate? I'm shutting up now.

THEY WEREN'T TROLLING! *stalks off*

Fizzy, no one gives a damn. Stop sticking your nose in business that does not concern you.
