How far is it allowed to go?
I just want to know how far people are allowed to go when it comes to trolling (hating on something). Some people give criticism, and that's great, if its helpful, but when someone says something like "Wow, that looks stupid", or "That hurts my eyes", that is in NO way helpful. I know you can delete comments and what not but seriously, how far are people allowed to go before something happens?

Well, the person leave comments that are basically just like, useless I guess, like here is one, I put duct tape in one of my LEGO creations I was acting like it was minifig size, and the person said, "Wish I hadn't seen that duct tape," this isn't that bad, but annoying. I've also told this person not to correct my grammar on my comments if they are on my own page. He continues to do so. Also, I asked him not to comment on the page, and he said it,"amused him to watch my ignorance," -_-

I see what you're saying. You don't like it when people give you advice, that's cool, but people DO give advice. You can either tell them you don't like their idea, or ignore it. Don't say stuff like "wow, you really don't know when you are not wanted", that's more offensive than advice.

People have every right to correct you. That doesn't mean they are insulting you, it means they are trying to help.

You must also realize that people respond in kind. That means if you're a jerk to a person, they'll be a jerk to you.

Look who dropped by,
I take your point with respect, advice is good and usually helpful, its the way people GIVE the advice. Although I may or may not have overreacted, the way you gave the advice was not helpful. I should have just ignored the comment and let it go. Sorry. But I would just like to know if you think you did ANYTHING wrong if you where 100% right (in your eyes)

Hold on Eric, my comment needs approved, not really sure why this time.

Calling someone mentally defective, although likely accurate, is "trolling". Telling someone that their workmanship is both shoddy and painful to behold, is not.

Duct tape and lego have no business being in the same room together.

Best move 99.9% of the time. Of course there's always going to be a certain amount of grey area between a comment that's annoying and one that actually deserves attention from mods.

My recommendation anytime you encounter a comment that's questionable is to give yourself time to cool down, then go back and try to determine objectively if we should be notified. If you still feel like it's bordering on being intentionally rude or insultive, please let us know.

Thanks, and yeah, I will. Wonder when Eric will check this.

Eric, you really shouldn't call him a fool even if you think so there's an old saying "if you haven't anything good to say then don't say anything at all" I found you to be slightly rude to celeb, and if your giving advice make it plain and clear not "it hurt's my eye's" and so forth when you see something such as that and you don't like it you should say something to the affect of "It's good but the duck tape is rather distracting to the rest of the moc".

Hi

Just thought I'd point out that we are all uploading our content to THE INTERNET.

Which means that ANYONE can comment on your creation and write WHAT THEY LIKE.

That's the beauty, and curse, of living in a virtual world.

You need to understand the www is basically a free unpoliced voice to all - put your MOCs up and expect critisism.

Personally, I like genuine advice / critisism as it helps me improve. And if anything is racist or offensive, the hardworking MOCpages Mods will remove it.

Well, it just depends. A few years ago, when I used to look around MOCpages and not have an account, people didn't shos any respect. I say people say what they wanted to say, and often times, it was hurtful. If you are going to say somehitng offensive, then don't say it at all. Instead, say something constructive. <-Pun.
