Exclamation HP's Stance On Trolling

I am legitimately saddened that I need to make this post.

We here at Hookahpro have never and will never encourage, support or tolerate any senseless, negative actions against any other communities, individuals or organizations. We don't care if you don't like their youtube videos or even if they attacked us first. Let the children throw mud at your Aston Martin on your way to work. It all washes off and they are the ones wading through the filth.

To use a more accessible terminology: We don't feed trolls.

If anyone is seen trolling in our name, you will be banned. If anyone uses our forum to promote, organize or advocate negative actions like spamming other forums, leaving attacking comments or inciting drama you will be banned.

We have a lot of new members here that seem to think we are just another forum that plays into the flame war BS. We do not tolerate that and I would suggest you ask our repeat offenders but they don't have a home here. We are very serious about keeping this forum respectable and the most basic necessity for garnering respect is to give it.

On top of that we seem to have some older members that were just waiting for a little support to start on the trolling antics. No title, donation status or post count is a bullet proof shield. Everyone here is held accountable for their actions and if you break the rules, be you a member, elite, vendor or mod, you will be reprimanded.

This is a problem that I am not going to pussy foot around. I will not be seeing any more threads suggesting we troll ANYONE and if we see trolling occur on the part of our members it will be dealt with.

+1 I am truly tired of people new and old on HP making a bunch of asses out of themselves and this forum.

No. That's just funny.

That's light hearted jesting that is usually explained quickly and not done maliciously or with the intent to harm.

Uh... I think this post is probably because of a thread I made recently about some other dude on YouTube. Anyway, I never took the chance to apologize for it, so here it is. I originally thought the thread was eaten by the forum and didn't know there was a rule against this, since the guy didn't seem to belong to another community, but yeah, let's just leave it at that. I understand the logic of this rule and fully approve of it, so no protest from my end!

I feel like this is my fault in a lot of ways I have been doing some trolling here mostly froyo related jokes though...

i couldn't agree with that more, though I haven't seen instances of people using HP's name to attack other forums? maybe I'm not looking hard enough. still if it's happening, needless to say it should not be allowed to continue. good post.

exactly! people need to cool down about the froyo business (no pun intended). it's just the more veteran members keeping the fun alive when theyve seen the same silly thread 8 bazillion times

Froyo isn't a joke, man. You start with that thing now? What have they done to you? Who brainwashed you?! Both the reviews I did today were with Froyo in the base...

OK. All other things aside, you're not responsible at all. It's already been mentioned that the only trolling they're talking about is the kind in which we directly attack other people or implicate HP in a debacle with another community/person/thing/cloud.

SHHH I know froyo isn't a joke they just have to think I do, I was definitely a part of that whole thing against THK that was a flame fest. Other than that I don't see where this is going...

Does Rickrolling count towards trolling?

Oh. If you posted on that thread a bunch of flaming stuff, then you were involved too. That means we'll be prison buddies. It's a matter of who drops the soap first.

Anyway, I guess there's a place for people like THK, too. I mean he does follow the habit like we do. Just because he has moments in which he believes he knows what he's talking about doesn't mean that we have to bash someone for it in public. Between the two of us, I guess that's fine.

Don't forget: We need everyone's support possible to combat the stupidity and ignorance of those against smoking hookah. Those are the real enemies, and THK has also proven his intention of dispelling the myths spread about hookah as well. I consider that a friend, not foe.

Only thing is: I just couldn't resist laughing a little

Whether or not the parties in question admit it publicly they still go the (bludgeoning) hint so it shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for the concern though.
