Sealioning (also spelled sea-lioning and sea lioning) is a type of trolling or harassment which consists of pursuing people with persistent requests for evidence or repeated questions.

He also admits that is what he means:

They're hoping soon, my kind will drop and die
But I'm going to wave my freak flag high

Trollnaming is generally when someone is just calling another player a troll and not making any attempt at debate. ShrewLlamaLand is making the effort to debate in that thread. There's no need for moderator intervention there.

That is basically what he is doing in regards to me though. Instead of engaging with me he decided to call me a troll. He is engaging with others, but with me specifically he decided to go down the route of calling me a sea lion.

On page 78 of the thread, you've got one post that is just an emoji, a second which is a comment on salt levels, and then it's only your third one that looks like an attempt to debate. If I'm going to be handing out warnings for low-level spam, ShrewLlamaLand is not top of the list of candidates.

But as with ShrewLlamaLand's "sea-lion" post, I think it's appropriate to overlook the occasional brief spammy posts in a thread when that person is otherwise making a legitimate attempt to debate with other participants.

Or put another way: we judge on context not just the single post.

Okedoke, thanks Sedge.
