    They should be able to define baiting pretty well.

    The Unofficial Glossary

    The Unofficial Glossary

    The following are my own definitions, and hardly complete. However, these are something to start with.

    flaming — Includes, but is not limited to denigrating, deliberately provocative, or combative behavior intended specifically to goad or distress another.

    baiting — A form of entrapment intended to provoke another person into a violation of rules in order to justify punishment or warrant complaint.

    trolling — Repeated disruptive and disingenuous behavior including, but not limited to, repetition of false assertions of fact, refusal to support extraordinary assertions, flaming, baiting, or willful misrepresentation of others.​

    I've been on other forums where there are baiters...in fact I say they are true masters of their craft.

    Definitions aren't compliance, leo.

    where moderators are concerned i would agree, they have the whole "justice" thing to look at.
    i just didn't want to report posts for "baiting" when they are actually something else.

    Enter a Cathedral of the 16th century and dare to raise your voice against that times, "modern" myths and Holy Scriptures, and see how fast you are cast out and accused of "disrupting" a place of worship by petty worm-tongues and two-bit "intellectuals".

    Each age has its defenders of ethics and what is "right".

    In these current ones we have administrators finding authority on internet forums, using terms like "troll" to explain why censorship is permissible there, while they denounce it every place else.

    You just got out of prison right ? Banning is what I mean . Trolling was it ? I am a little curious. I didn't see what caused your ban . I been banned a couple times . It can be quite tricky . I often wonder if Administrators target individuals that they deem inappropriate by ideology . The evil meat eater thread of an Administrator opened many eyes right here at our very own home ( SciForum )
    Trolling Baiting and flaming . Love it all . Keep it coming . Unite trolls !!! We got em on the ropes .
    Baiting for an intelligent person is the most fun of them all. One thing to keep in mind is baiting can be very educational .

    I was banned for "trolling"...which can mean anything that bothers the "powers of peace and conformity".
    Some of them have extrasensory perceptions and can know what the motive is.
    Weird for a place that claims to be dedicated to the New Age religion of science.

    Mikey, you're a hetero male-you can shave your head.
    OTOH, if it really does look like that....

    Mikey's kidding. I seriously doubt Mike has day-glo hair...at most it might be a natural bright red and really bushy, think Carrot Top.

    What's the old saying? "I can't tell you what it is, but I know it when I see it".

    A stinky silver lining?

    And you see? That much I can appreciate. While it's not an argument you're going to win in the long run, at least you taught me something new.

    A wonderful colloquialism, sir. Thank you for introducing me to it.

    No.

    You were banned because you proved unable to carry on a conversation with anybody for any length of time without insulting them.

    Sock puppets are not allowed on sciforums, so you are banned again.

    Nice name choice, by the way. Appropriate.
