@bettalover. I don't think it was a "troll" thing for you to do, just something that probably shouldn't have been said. You DID apologize, and seem sincere in your apology, so I would say you are in no way a troll (: Have no fear. Just remember that a lot of people don't like it when their bettas, who they probably love a great deal, are insulted.

The best thing to do with trolls, aka ihatebettas, is to ignore them. When given no reaction, they tend to slink away, back into the swamps from whence they came.
Queen of hypocrites here, I rose to his/her challenge, and snapped back. I've been on the interwebz long enough to know better, and apologize xD From now on, I shall ignore him/her.

Edit: Sorry for the complete derailing of this topic! Sorry sorry sorry xD

Agreed with CodeRed. (Though you have to admit, sometimes it can be hard not to put a troll in his/her place!)
And BettaLover, you do not seem at all seem like a troll, don't worry. ;)

Don't forget that any of us can use the report feature to report a troll and let Admin handle it. :)
(report feature is under your user id- the red/white triangle with an "i"in the middle. )

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Just curious, what do you mean by "troll"? I haven't heard that term before, but I'm assuming that it's someone who says rude and hurtful things just to be rude and hurtful?

A troll is someone who deliberately starts trouble and is rude and obnoxious.

If it was suppose to be pronouced "bay-da or bay-tuh", wouldn't it be spelt like Beta? Like Alpha-Beta..

I always use to say "bay-da" because it sounded better but after relizing the "correct" pronouciation I trained myself to say "bet-tuh". I always get funny looks at the LFS for it.

Everyone around here calls it "Bay-duh" and I've never heard anyone call it "bet-ta" So i just stick with bay-duh. I get funny looks if I don't.
