What do you expect from people with childish attitudes no idea of responsibility, In my mind this is more down to bad choices made by people at the top. not choosing the right people in the 1st instance then bringing the same people back again and again.
now we have  non repairable damage its spilling out on the forums. The Handy Rob situation needs to be permanently resolved one has to leave not to return another day. Otherwise it will just go on and on so come on guys choose which one goes and which one stays as it is you are both harming Manjaro

The  recent internal team struggles shed a very strange light on these troll attacks imho.

Whoever is trolling hits the Manjaro users. And i don't think that they deserve it.

I'm not even sure it affects the users.

I'm a manjaro user. I check in on the forums on an almost daily basis, still I hadn't even discovered the issue until curiosity made me check out the goodbye of rudylorren thread wondering what a rudylorren was. I might have just as easily missed it entirely.

I like reading forum posts. I follow a lot of different forums regularly, not just this one. I don't normally miss out on forum trouble, because I am an opinionated SOB that's drawn to trouble like a moth to a flame, still I was close to missing out on this rudylorren business or whatever the hell it was.

What I'm saying is, that if a forum geek like myself, who likes to poke around in odd threads looking for the unusual, is able to miss the recent "situation", then odds are good that the average forum user that just comes here, guided by a google search, looking for a fix to a specific problem will never even know anything happened.

Most "trolls" are just noisy and easy to ignore. Proper trolling is an art form, hitting that fine balance of getting people to jump for the bait without being to obvious. It takes skill and patience. Posting porn pictures all over the place is amateur hour..

I don't think Rudylorren is/was a troll. He was a member of the Manjaro team. Anyway, as far as i can tell, the trolling mostly takes place in the wiki. So it affects people looking for help there.

Me neither.
But as Isaid to him myself maybe I'm just naive. I tthink they need to show some proof of it. To ban someone from the forum for something he didn't do in the forum is just wrong IMO!!!

Some stuff has to be dealt internally. We tried hard to keep it inside. You just see the tip of the iceberg. For more information you can read our statement.
