Top 10 Reasons Why Rustlers are Plaguing TheTopTens

To those users reading this list for the first time and has completely no idea what a rustler is, I have the explanation for you right here. A rustler is a user who causes drama or fights intentionally with other users, mainly for the purpose of entertaining themselves and expecting over the top responses from the other side. They also say controversial opinions (e.g. "black people are morons") to cause upset.

Get the idea now? Good. Now let's get to the real meat and potatoes. Rustlers are what have been plaguing TheTopTens community. With the Terms being very loose when it comes to both bullying and bigotry, rustlers are usually let off the hook easily, usually only being suspended for a few months at the best. However, the main reasons rustlers get away with saying bigoted comments is due to the fact that many users defend them as being humorous or as friendly, which are signs of neglect for the Terms and Policy of the site.

Now here, I'm going to list down items that relate to what I have described in this paragraph. If you are a rustler who is extremely sensitive, you can either leave this list immediately, or alternatively try to be funny and spout out nonsense that is the equivalent of what popular rustlers like Keemstar or LeafyIsHere say. For repetition measure, I will not be leaving any comments in the items, as I have described well enough by now what rustlers are doing.

The Top Ten

1 Rustlers are let off the hook easily yet continue to do the same actions that got them banned with rarely any consequence

The rustlers have become the rustled. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Why, thank you! Here's a bitter stale doggy biscuit for your troubles. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This list explains the problems with this site, good job at making this list man. The site is declining a lot. - AnimeDrawer

I agree with this list bet I'm going to be hated because of it Oh well I won't be Surpised - christangrant

I agree - RoseCandyMusic

2 Many users follow in the footsteps of rustlers merely to either be seen as popular or humorous

That's so stupid and true - Ananya

Yeah, this is so accurate. There's a whole group of them on the site just following and bandwagoning off one another. - Element119

Nah, some users follow the footsteps of actual psychopaths and they're idols! - 2cool4u

Jack2244 and LarrytheFairy. Seriously. - DCfnaf

3 Rustlers cause pointless fights with other users and even themselves

These users can only cause fights if you let them and by this, I mean responding to their comments, thus giving them the ammunition to reply with another offensive, idiotic comment. Ignore them; let them talk to themselves. Unless of course, that's what you secretly like - a word war. Just ignore these people. - Britgirl

Leave it to Britgirl to speak some actual sense when no one else does. Thank you. - cjWriter1997

This list is so accurate - Ananya

4 Rustlers assume that comparing everything they disdain to disorders or illnesses is what humour is

I've seen a lot of this out of them too. You deserve respect for making this list. - Element119

That's immaturity..Thinking of comparing diseases to things is just very pointless and immature, I have no idea how does it makes them feel 'cool' and 'good' - Ananya

Ayyy bois! It's not rustling that you're talking about, it's calculated trolling! - 2cool4u

5 Rustlers show their immaturity by getting their pants in a twist if one doesn't agree with them

I'll twist your pants, with my fists (which would be an amazing feat since, I'm pretty sure no one ever did that before)! But, I guess this is right. - EliHbk

I've seen this happen so many times...so very true. They claim they're such good rustlers while then they get all "rustled" themselves if you don't think the same way as them. - Element119

6 Rustlers take other users' opinions to heart and get into fights with them if they don't share their opinions

I've read the description and I still have no idea what the hell a Rustler is. - egnomac

7 Their humour is equivalent to the humour on shock sites such as Encyclopedia Dramatica or 4chan

Greatest sites ever! - 2cool4u

8 Admin is oblivious to the content rustlers say, most of which could be seen as racism, homophobia, or even cyberbullying

There's a difference between being actually racist and being really edgy. - djpenquin999

Yep. Sums them up perfectly. - naFrovivuS

At least admin can take those kinds of jokes lol - 2cool4u

9 They treat themselves as being potential administrations or gods on the site when they are merely bourgeois hypocrites using chutzpah to seem braver than they actually are

Lol I think I know who you're talking about. - TheLoudHouseSucks

This is an amazing list. Very accurate too. - Element119

Proletariat rustlers are a thing, bois! - 2cool4u

10 When they make fun of others, they say that it's humour. If you disagree with their actions, they see it as offensive.

I'm not a rustler or supporting any sides here but honestly I find this list kinda dumb. Jokes made by rustlers aren't supposed to be taken seriously. They have no meaning at all. Just leave them alone and go on your way. - TwilightKitsune

Oh and by the way they don't see disagreeing with their actions as 'offensive'. They don't care what people think of them as like I said before, they're jokes aren't meant to be taken seriously - TwilightKitsune

The Contenders

11 Rustlers constantly whine about the policy being bad when they never even abide by the rules in the first place

Quite accurate. This is one of the best lists I've ever seen on this site. - Element119

Funny when rustlers know the exploits of the terms by technically (and not morally) following the rules - 2cool4u
