Hi there. I can't help noticing that you have this habit of confronting problematic users on their behavior, which is especially evident now that the user who originally went by the name CatsbeCats is, unfortunately, making a return with a relentless set of sockpuppet accounts to go back to posting his usual bile. You need to stop that; there are some people out there who will stoop to any low just to get attention, even if it's very much the negative kind. While this user may not have a hint of the innocence you normally associate with children, it's clear that, like a child, he prefers negative attention over none at all. I mean, really, going as far as repeatedly saying "ugly people should die/commit suicide?" Doesn't that seem specifically meant to rile people up to you if you stop to think about it? After all, that's exactly the kind of thing most people find inexcusably awful. In other words, you're giving this user exactly what they want by getting angry at them, calling them a monster, swearing at them, etc.
Please don't get me wrong; most other users, no, most people period, very much feel the same way you do about it. It doesn't matter whether you want attention or you genuinely think that way, there are some awful sentiments you just don't express, and are inexcusable under any circumstances. Unfortunately, there have always been some truly awful people like this in the world, there always will be, and to quote Nick Wilde from Zootopia, you just have to "never let them see that they get to you". I know it's hard, but this is very clearly the type of extreme vandal/troll you can't possibly reason with and won't change no matter how many times you condemn their behavior, so sending them any messages whatsoever is pointless. Therefore, by simply reporting them to an administrator as soon as you see any sign of their usual behavior (which is easy since they're anything but subtle about it), you'll be going a long way towards getting rid of them as soon, and with as little drama as possible. I know you're just trying to stick up for others and the wiki as a whole, but try to deal with it the way we're supposed to. I guarantee that you're not alone on this, especially since Kronika also reacted to this user the same way you are now as recently as early September. I know this user is a vile piece of work you want to scream at til you're blue in the face, but remember; that's exactly what he/she wants. Don't give him/her the satisfaction of acknowledgement.
I agree with this statement. A few hours ago he was posting an image from a self harm page onto this site and megamitensei, telling users to do the same to themselves and saying things I dare not repeat. There's no point of even trying to reason with someone like that.
Exactly. Frankly, out of all the problematic users I have any knowledge of, or in some cases, have briefly come across, I'd say this user is the worst of them all. Pretty much everything they post is meant to shock, offend and degrade other people. Whoever they are, they clearly just want attention, and unfortunately, this is a case where they'll sink to absolutely any low to get it.
So in short, Kittycatgirl, yes, I do understand. Believe me, I've allowed myself to lose my temper at people who have made far less vile remarks than this person has, so I've actually been there. But that's exactly why I wanted to contact you about it. Don't think you're either letting there behavior slide or getting away with it if you don't confront it. You're not; you're just dealing with it in a more tactful, efficient way. It's hard to do in the short-term, but it's more likely to pay off in the long run. Just remember; people like this just aren't worth it. Plus, they're the ones living empty, meaningless lives and spewing equally empty, meaningless bile just to satisfy their childish need for attention, not you, so ultimately, who's really the worst off for it?
P.S. By the way, even if it's understandable, I do appreciate the apology. I really do sympathize, especially the part about sticking up for fellow users, but as hard as it is, just try not to treat anything they do or say like it has any real meaning, because by doing that, in a sense, you're giving them validation and power. Besides, we all know who really owes an apology, but unfortunately, it's just not going to happen.
I wish he would learn to understand the truth and ignore things things he hates and focus more on something nicer instead taking things way too seriously such as bullying and harassing people he claims are ugly and forcing them to commit suicide(even though these people didn’t even do anything bad to him) and shoving it down other people’s throats all the time. He also needs time off the internet for months and change his attitude as well.
