Forum:I think there should be a rule that all Sysops must have a sense of humor.

Well I was thinking, and I remembered that there is funny telling and unfunny trolling. Funny trolling is tolerated, and unfunny trolling is sent to the vandal bin. Now, if there was a sysop with no sense of humor ALL trolling would be unfunny to them, thus possibly breaking the rule to tolerated funny trolling. Is this already a rule? Please post your opinions. Also, there is a third kind of trolling that I forgot. Please tell me what it is.

A bit seriously though, "sense of humeur" is a wide field. We have a regular user here whose SOH is so deadpan it's hard for many people to spot. So he could be mistaken for a troll, and has been on occasion. I think dealing with disruptive elements is a matter of building a fifty-foot atomic robot experience and fine judgement.

There's also the problem of editors using humour as a justification for truly awful contributions to articles, then responding with "you have no sense of humour" when others want to revert or delete them. I don't think "people with no sense of humour" actually exist; it's just an accusation people use when they really mean "you don't find the same things funny as me".

You're right. Am I allowed to say AceMcwicked has an unfunny sense of humor? He may be a good example actually, of why you are right. Oh. I just realized what I am doing may be mistaken for concern trolling. Sorry.
