Very serious question about trolls
Nov 5, 2012

Why is there ​always ​a troll or two that runs the show around here for 6-18 months at a time before they drop off the face of the earth? Trolls that use this forum as their exclusive gallery, where they post a single mediocre/awful image in each thread, and which they start a new thread 7-11 times each week...

These aren't images that warrant a new thread by any means. They are all generally nearly identical looking and exhibit no variation or improvement from shot to shot. They never mention gear/settings, and are always of the format: "Hey! Look at this [snapshot] I took!" They are never in the appropriate forum, like portraits, landscapes, e.g. They don't take constructive criticism. They are immune to any negative commentary, which is always overlooked. But they thank profusely anyone that says "Holy mother of god, this is awesome. Keep them coming PLEASE!"

I'm thinking of Ron Scubadiver, Neil Jones, and that guy that posts those orange HDR silo snapshots.

Is this some law of nature?

Help.
