    Just ignore their posts, report them if you feel it is worthy and speak to the mods.
    +1 for ignoring their posts. Engaging them is a waste of time and energy. Treat them as if they were women—by walking away from them. Starve them of attention. Or think of it this way: They say fighting demons is giving them energy; so don’t fight them. On the other hand, the troll at mgtow.com was creating tons of multi-megabyte posts—the intent was clearly to wreck the site. This is where you need a moderator to unceremoniously shut off that shit.

    They're just not reading the material, either because they are not male, or anti-MGTOW, or anti-MRA, or pro-feminist, or just lazy.


    With all of the content available online, there is no reason why ANY man should be blue pill today. Him doing so is by choice, even if that choice is the thirst for pussy - letting his DICK decide.

    This is not a place to help blue-pill men survive in their fake matrix world. But, if I were to give blue-pill men ONE line of advice to get them just CONSIDERING the Red Pill reality it would be this.

    "Don't listen to what women say, observe their ACTIONS and always follow the MONEY!"

    Some guys like Matrix movie metaphors, others don't. Most MGTOW guys I've talked to believe in the Red Pill in one form or another.
    But, my favorite quote from Morpheus to 'newly woke' Neo is this, during the Kung-Fu training scene:

    Morpheus: How did I beat you?

    Neo: You... you're too fast.

    Morpheus: Do you believe that my being stronger or faster has anything to do with my muscles in this place? Do you think that's air you're breathing now?

    *********************************************

    Blue-Pill: They said I just chose wrong, and should just better myself and try again.
    Red-Pill: Do you believe that you being better, or choosing "correctly" has anything to do with the outcome of your relationships in this place?

    The "choose wisely" lie is the biggest laugh of all for one simple reason: people change, and sometimes very quickly. I met another man recently who's wife left him and monkey-branched - boyfriend shows up RIGHT during divorce proceedings. Hmmmm... snagged a beta workhorse, with guaranteed income via child support - this b1tch just waited until the kid was off breast milk and old enough to sleep through the night and BAM. She's gone. So when did she decide this? Before or after post-partum depression kicked in? Before or after the pregnancy? Or even before that?

    I bet she knew the "new guy" long before Guy A even knocked her up.
    I bet subconsciously (because all female designs are subconscious to them) she had the whole fucking thing planned.

    Lurkers: Do you really believe that all you need to do is work out a bit and choose wisely, even if you're a confirmed beta male?
    Do you think she loves you the way you love her?



    LOL this reminds me a thread i have red on roids forum and the dude came asking what do i do , how do i become shredded LOL .

    And the dudes there said that you have to read this and this thread but he kept asking what do i do . They took their time write him a training program and diet . Abd the dude kept going his own way telling them and instead of meat he just throws few scoops of protein powder LOL

    They said - do not do that ! There is nothing there except sugar lol !!! But the newbie dude kept his frame and continued go against their advice because he saw in some calculation board that still has to throw in protein powder here and there lol and this is not good and that not good .

    They started yelling at him for wasting their time lol

    The questions about what do i do with my gf is like question - how to revive a dead body
    You cant keep a player down!
    Dont hate him , hate your fuking bullshit game !

    Definitely, for every rule there is an exception. The problem on MGTOW.com was there wasn't any moderators and the Admin was on some kind of break. This allowed the Troll to run rampant. They did a lot of damage especially as just a few months prior a lot of the members were locked out due to some kind of technical glitch.

    In the end I deleted my account because I couldn't take the site seriously anymore.

    There is a system. You just don't see it because most of the inner workings occur in mod space.

    Speaking for myself, I don't ban someone for a one-off, even if they're an obvious troll. Because, you know, I could be wrong and with great power comes great responsibility. But rest assured, if someone is acting like a troll, they're on our radar and we're building a case to ban them. We go to great lengths to make sure we're not being arbitrary when we take action. People who like to see insta-bans think this means we're doing nothing, but I assure you we are working the problem.

    U guys know how to spot a troll better than I...
    Im still a rookie but I'm suspecting an undercover double agent amonst us. I dont like it.

    I guess what im trying to do is set up some kind of standard for picking trolls and banning them. Like a legal system. Suspect, trial, evidence, verdict, sentence if found guilty.

    For example I'd suggest that "MGTOW simply means we reject living with women and anything beyond it like marriage or babies."
    Nothing more I think. It's only one rule

    So should a guy who lives with his lover be even allowed to speak in this forum?

    So aside from the definition of MGTOW what are some red flags that we can point to and say fuck off???

    I hate the thought of these fake people. We talk about personal stuff. They need to be kicked out.

    On the other hand I want to welcome new comers without being hostile and treating them like trolls. We need to still show empathy to real men who have just escaped the plantation. It's the toughest stage
    You're talking about instituting a government. Governments are worse than trolls. The best way to deal with a troll is to ignore them...literally, put them on ignore.

    I joined today and 2 of the 3 responses accused me of being a woman. I can't tell ya how bad that makes this place look as a first impression.

    Anarchon, you are under a very wrong impression. Read this post in your Intro thread:

    http://www.goingyourownway.com/mgtow...43/#post131643

    You need to stop posting asap and get to that requirement. It appears you have not done your homework before joining this site.

    If you're attempting to make us feel bad, you'll learn very fast that's a fruitless endeavor. Shaming (something women favor) is loathed, brutal honesty is lauded here. If some guys get the feeling you're not who you say you are because of the way you have presented yourself, they'll give it to you straight. If you can't deal with that, best move on. There are no "safe spaces" in the Manosphere.
    A more detailed intro might have avoided this initial distrust. Trust is not implicit (something women tend to expect), it must be earned.
    Shame is a womans primary weapon. Watch for it, and call it out wherever you see it. Few women know how to handle a man immune to shame.

    Re: How to spot a troll

    A conspicuous lack of emotion in the intro, a refusal to follow the forum rules that the men of this forum all follow, and now complaining about "hurt feelings" when you are called out on not following the rules. Sounds like the princess syndrome to me.
