I reported Kanto to severyl mods AGAIN. I hope we will finally see some action, and get our freedom in the threads back. We simply cant have ONE PAGE without him, annoying us.

Everyone else, who feel annoyed by him. Do the same. I wont be the only one, to fight for a peaceful forum.

Definition of Troll (from Wikipedia):
"In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion"

I'd argue that Kanto provokes a negative emotional response in a lot of us because he knows we don't follow his roof height crusade, and he knows it annoys many of us but continues to do so. Plus his posts usually devolve into a disruption of normal on-topic discussion, which he then blames on everyone else even though he is the cause.

I don't think he necessarily has bad intentions, but it's frustrating when he posts incorrect information due to his fixation on roof heights.

kanto doesnt seem to bother people just for the hell of bothering them, however. i think he posts because he wants to advocate what he believes in, whether it bothers others or not.

Kanto's motive is to annoy us. aznman once asked Kanto to stop using the shrugging shoulders icon and Kanto did it in every one of his next 20 or so posts, even when it didn't apply. It's a small and irrelevant example, but it shows his motive nonetheless. He is a troll and is the reason we are off-topic.

As for him "advocating what he believes in," roof height is no longer the official height measurement, so whether he believes that is how it should be or not, that's not how it is. He continues to bring up the topic and flood new readers with false information and nothing seems to be done about it.

Pretty pictures, Otie! They're both amazing, but I can't get over how pictures like the first one blend in with the WFC so well.

Oh my, there's a flying saucer in this photo

Btw, to respond to the civilized critics, I agree that maybe I made a mistake by not saying in my post that I'm using roof height as well and byrequiring samdam to announce that he's using official height in this thread and not by sending him a PM. If so I would like to apologize and promiss that from now on I'm gonna mention in every post about height that I speak about roof height and that everything related to it I will solve via PMs. I have no bad intentions and if somebody has a problem with me, please PM me, but please keep it civilized, thank you

And to get a bit on topic again, I think it's time for the PA cam again:

how does it feel Kanto when pretty much the majority of this forum simply dont like you? You feel "mission accomplished", or a complete loser, because the majority cant be wrong... there is clearly a very big issue with you. The sooner you realize it and deal with it the better for you.
