Hi Zam Admin,

I will start by stating that I would be the first to acknowledge that censoring the right to free speech is a bad idea but I also think creating a forum that is open for any dumb *** to pour their self righteous rants for the rest of the world to swallow isn't an ideal solution either.

There are an unbelievably high number of posters that are trolling for the sake of trolling, maybe they think they will be more cool if they cut the game and other posters that support the game. Maybe these Trolls are starved of attention and think that ripping into FFXIV is their way of getting back at the man..... whatever the reasoning I don't really care I just don't want to read it and I would rather not see posters idiotic rants receiving credence on forums like this one.

Just so we are clear, I am not saying that constructive criticism of SE and/or FFXIV should not be allowed. In fact I think a constructive critic of games such as FFXIV is a great way for the game to improve and as such is invaluable. Comments like "we need an AH", Market Wards don't work", The UI needs to be improved by doing X, Y and Z, Game world is underpopulated, Etc, Etc are all good. Critisism in this manner is valid and helpful to the Devs in highlighting areas in need of improvement. However comments like "SE SUX", "FFXIV is an embarrassment of a game", "ill never play this game", etc, etc aren't helpful and I personally find irritating and very childish.

So here is the request.... Can Forum Admin add a Troll filter? as your moderating the forums could you not mark troll posts as such and then I/we can decide whether we want to read these troll posts...... I am sure that many of the trolls out there would love to read the remarks of fellow trolls (stupidity loves its own company). I for one though would like to enjoy my experience reading these forums and hearing both the good and bad parts of the game detailed in a more constructive manner.

BTW I know you have a rating system on these forums but they are not that effective and are more likely going to make this post sub default by the trolls out there and only read by you.

If this is possible I would be eternally grateful.

Yes, but then we would also need a filter to filter out all the fanboys who troll the complaints threads with Learn2playN00b and "but I'm having fun and because I'm having fun it should mean that everyone is having fun so your complaint isn't valid because you aren't having fun" and such. They can be just as annoying. =p

I'd prefer an idiot filter.
WoW -- Zaia -- Dragonmaw -- Mage 80 BABY! Alchemy 450
Also... Hunter 62, Rogue 52, Warrior 66, Warlock 43, Death Knight 70, Shaman Who Cares? ;)

FFXI -- Caia -- Retired/Deleted -- Blm 75, Alchemy 97
Pandimonium server - Rank 10 - Bastok

Zaela Rdm -- 35, Alchemy 45 -- Forced into retirement because I didn't have the right kind of credit card. Hope it was worth 18 bucks a month, SE.
