Manish,

Your photo is pathetic. Work on your clicking skills one month, and post a photo here. And if that photo is also show the same quality of shamelessness, i'll come to your place and kick in your ass.


I request some action!

Hopefully someone with some spare time will cvlean it up, but an important lesson is: Please don't feed the troll!

Why should entire thread get deleted???

I could have doen it myself - I was the one who started that thread & another person spoilt th ewhole thing. I expected the person to get banned or whatver. The thread indeed had lot of useful information - only because one troll decides to make it a mess you can't delete the whole topic - the person should get banned if he is so annoying - or delete his posts!

This simply doesn't make sense for two reasons -
(1) The thread indeed had some good discussion otherwise unless this person spoilt the whole fun.
(2) The person who provoked & created all the mess goes scot-free to provoke more people in other threads & continue his troll.

Next time I better forget this rule myself & respond to that person in similar language if reporting it here would mean getting my useful thread deleted instead of troll being banned or whatever.

Can somebody with more time look into this??? Please?

Who said it should? It's here:
http://www.coderanch.com/t/43882/md/Digital-Camera . All the posts since September 19th have been deleted (by Sheriff Yingst, to whom thanks are due) and so the thread no longer shows up on the first page of MD.

If you'd like to help get things like this cleaned up, then don't reply to trolls -- just ignore them, and send a PM to an MD moderator, who will have an easier time cleaning things up if s/he doesn't have to clean up quotes of quotes of not-nice text in 27 different messages!

Got it!!! Thanks!!!
Love you Jim!! )

I understand what you guys talk about troll. But I'd love to see such people getting banned or whatver so as to teach them a lesson instead of ignoring.

But I'd follow what you say!!!

Thanks a ton Jim once again!!!

No problem. I should have posted here to let you know where the thread was now. DOM and I had the same problem earlier, thinking the thread was gone when in reality it was just on an older page.
