Keskustelufoorumien perustyypit tulivat taas t?n??n sattumalta mieleeni. T??lt? l?ytyv?t kaikki tutut hahmot
is usually a long-term discussion forum participant and he thinks of the forum as his private compound. Xenophobe regards new forum arrivals as mentally deficient and perhaps even having criminal tendencies, and they are invariably approached with suspicion and condescension. Xenophobe will mount a furious attack if a Newbie has the temerity to make critical observations about the forum's social dynamics, or questions its prevailing opinions.
Reviirinvartija ryhtyy raivoisaan hy?kk?ykseen, jos jollakin uutukaisella on otsaa esitt?? kriittisi? huomautuksia foorumin sosiaalisesta vuorovaikutuksesta tai kyseenalaistaa sen hallitsevia mielipiteit??
is looking for a response...ANY response, and he will chum the waters with complaints, insults, compliments, and inflammatory tidbits hoping that someone...ANYONE, will take the bait. Generally quite harmless - practices a form of catch and release. Nonetheless, he can upset the delicate ecology of a discussion forum. Once a forum becomes aware of his presence, however, all feeding activity ceases and Troller must move on to more promising waters.
Trolli etsii vastakaikua, mit? tahansa vastareaktiota esitt?m?ll? kehuja, hy?kk?yksi?, tulehduttavia pikkupistoja? Siin? vaiheessa kun foorumille valkenee h?nen l?sn?olonsa, vuorovaikutuksen ruokkiva vaikutus heikkenee, ja trollin pit?? suunnata uusille apajille?
As a forum participant Jekyll and Hyde
always plays by the rules and is consistently cordial and helpful ? a model netizen, until one day he comes completely uncorked and lashes out without warning. His unanticipated thunderbolts can temporarily rout even the sturdiest Warriors, and it often takes some time for his stunned opponents to mount a counter attack. Jekyll and Hyde?s sudden behavioral change may result from a psychotic episode, PMS, a downturn in the market, a surprise visit by the in-laws ? or a session of hard drinking...
Jekyll ja Hyde k?ytt?ytyy tavallisesti kuin mallinettikansalainen. Kunnes jonain p?iv?n? h?nen k?yt?ksens? muuttuu dramaattisesti psykoottisen kohtauksen, PMS-oireiden, p?rssikurssien laskun, sukulaisvierailun ? tai rankan ryyppyputken j?lkeen?
Forums often contain one or more unacknowledged sub-societies
, but everyone except the most clueless know that these groups exist and constantly feel their influence. Such alliances congeal because of similarities in ideas and attitudes, or for the desire for power and influence within the forum. Since human beings are hierarchical creatures each of these these little mafias always have a Godfather
who is surrounded by a cadre of loyal henchmen. Unlike Rebel Leader, Issues, Furious Typer and other noisy Warriors, Godfather only occasionally deigns to enter into discussions, but when he does everyone listens to him respectfully and his pronouncements have an air of finality. Though Godfather himself never engages in battle, it is commonly understood that his utterances should not be challenged, and when an unsuspecting Newbie or ambitious wannabe mounts a challenge to his authority Godfather?s henchmen viciously silence or drive away the attacker.
Foorumeilla on tavallisesti enemm?n tai v?hemm?n piilotettuja alaryhmi?, pikkumafioita, joilla jokaisella on oma Kummiset?ns? ?
hive is almost impossible to detect. When a hapless victim stumbles on a forum that houses a Swarm and disturbs it with an offending message, the Swarm will erupt and fly at their victim from all directions. Taken one at a time the irrelevant, often mindless individual attacks can be easily brushed aside, but because of the sheer volume of the assault even the strongest Warriors must eventually yield. WARNING: Only those who are highly skilled in Swarm management techniques should attempt to wade into a Swarm hive. but even with protective clothing opposing Warriors should expect to suffer a few stings.
Kun pahaa-aavistamaton uhri kompuroi sis??n foorumille - jossa hallitsee herhil?isparvi - ja h?iritsee sit? uhkaavalla viestill?, parvi hy?kk?? uhrinsa kimppuun joka suunnalta?
prefers to go into battle disguised or heavily camouflaged, often using pseudonyms, anonymous mail servers and multiple e mail addresses. Operating from a position of anonymity he can launch vicious attacks with little fear of reprisals. Because of his cowardice Stealth is often dismissed by other Warriors as an unworthy adversary.
Salainen pit?? parempana naamioitua tai raskaasti peitell? itse??n, h?n k?ytt?? useita alanikkej?, anonyymej? servereit? ja useita s?hk?postiosoitteita.Koska h?n toimii anonyymiyden suojissa, h?nell? on vain v?h?n pelkoa kostosta.
is a digital Proteus who changes his persona whenever it suits his purposes. That 21 year old co-ed from Arizona State you met in a discussion forum may, in fact, be a retired steel worker from Pittsburgh. Impostor will claim to be black, white, rich, poor, young, old, straight or gay, and if he's good he can pull it off - at least for a while. Of course, there are sinister, even criminal reasons Impostor would lie about who he is, but more often he fakes it to lend weight to his arguments, or simply to amuse himself. Impostor's requisite imagination and good writing skills can make him a formidable enemy, but even the best Impostors will eventually blunder and reveal their true identity. Once uncovered, Impostor always flees the field, but he may return in another form - you just never know...
Impostor saattaa esitt?? mit? tahansa roolia, joka sopii sen hetkisiin tarkoituksiin (suuri naistenmies, biokemisti, l??k?ri?), vaikka h?n oikeasti on teini-ik?inen finninaama tai sairaalan vahtimestari
, the discussion forum is all about him, and he regards discussions that stray from that topic as trivial dalliances. Although tolerant of an occasional shift in focus, Ego grows increasingly restive when the forum's attention shifts away from his interests, and he will often provoke conflict to reestablish himself as the subject at hand. Ego is one the the fiercest of all the Warriors and will fight to the death when attacked.
Ego uskoo, ett? koko foorumin tarkoitus on h?n itse. H?nen on aina saatava olla foorumin keskutelunaiheena (tai keskipisteen?)?
N?it? olen harvemmin n?hnyt:
Though Kung-Fu Masters
are powerful Warriors, they generally choose not to fight. Many lesser Warriors delude themselves into thinking that they are masters of war, but few are the genuine article. The true Kung-Fu master fully appreciates his own superiority and is therefore unruffled by petty provocations. When forced to fight, however, he quickly crushes his opponent with devastating blows.
Todellinen Kung-Fu mestari arvostaa t?ysin omaa ylemmyytt??n, eik? siksi provosoidu. Mutta jos h?net pakotetaan taisteluun, h?n murskaa vastustajansa tuhoavilla r?j?ytyksill?.
