Top 10 Reasons Why Rustlers are Plaguing TheTopTensTo 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
This list explains the problems with this site, good job at making this list man. The site is declining a lot.
The rustlers have become the rustled. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Why, thank you! Here's a bitter stale doggy biscuit for your troubles. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
These types of people are going to perish soon out of the limelight... These types of people will change soon after they see downfall... They're indeed tyrants... - Kevinsidis
Suspensions anyone? - iliekpiezV 3 Comments
Ironically, they're the ones that say not to take anything rustlers say seriously, and yet they act as if everything the rustlers say and do are heaven sent.
It isn't that hard to just be your own you and have your own opinions. If everyone followed the footsteps of one person/group, there would be no diversity on this site, and it would drive more users away because of how boring it would eventually get.
Yeah, this is so accurate. There's a whole group of them on the site just following and bandwagoning off one another. - Element119
They claim I bandwagon too much. Yet they've been doing it for YEARS. - Nonpointed
Because we are awesome people - Baltazar1710
Why would you follow a rustlers footsteps? They are, IMCO far from flawless toptenners - darthvadernV 4 Comments
I've seen a lot of this out of them too. You deserve respect for making this list. - Element119
Cancer, mental problems, autistic, gay, retard, retarded, ebola, AIDS, Down's syndrome... Dumb comments are always compared to these things. - Alkadikce
The reactions are the funniest humour I have ever seen - iliekpiez
Because it's funny - DarkBoi-XV 4 Comments
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
More like something sensitive people do. - DarkBoi-X
Honest speaking both sides start. The rustlers do something controversial and gives the sensitive guy a chance to add fuel, so both sides deserve equal hate / love - darthvadern
Don't let them and ignore them. - BorisRuleV 2 Comments
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
Michael Jackson fans in a nutshell - Alkadikce
Nope.Again it's more like something sensitive people do - DarkBoi-XV 2 Comments
I've read the description and I still have no idea what the hell a Rustler is. - egnomac
"They fight for free speech". Why do they hate everyone who doesn't like them? - darthvadern
They are basically Encyclopedia Dramatica incarnate, but like to see others as to what they are - Nonpointed
4chan isn't a shock site, Bestgore is. - styLIShT
No, meatspin is
There's a difference between being actually racist and being really edgy. - djpenquin999
Yep. Sums them up perfectly.
Cyberbullying exists, facts are not to argue with - darthvadern
Technically that means this site and everything on screens aren't real either as it's made up of pixels on screen - darthvadern
The last part does not exist
Lol I think I know who you're talking about. - TheLoudHouseSucks
This is an amazing list. Very accurate too. - Element119
Who would ever want to hand over the power to administrate the site to a bunch of edgy teens?
Please no - darthvadernV 4 Comments
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
Offensive, edgy content that's not meant to be taken seriously yet comes off as trying to piss people off?
Sounds like rustlers is just a fancy term for trolls.
*sensitive. But yeah I agree with the item - darthvadern
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
Incorrect - Demon_KittyV 4 Comments
Quite accurate. This is one of the best lists I've ever seen on this site. - Element119
Or they want constructive criticism on the site? - iliekpiez
Real chiefs of the site, eh?
Hypocrites much? - darthvadernV 1 Comment
Arrogant much? - darthvadern
Very very arrogant. They overrate their best friends and put good users at the bottom. I'm glad admin is doing his part - Nonpointed
