Patito is an individual who enjoys creating conflict on Pixdaus. He creates and fuels arguments which upset other members of the Pixdaus community. Patito thrive in the anonymous space that is Pixdaus. He craves attention from others, and he doesn't care whether the attention is positive or negative. For Patito, other users are not quite real people; they are abstract characters on the other side of a computer screen. Patito doesn't feel bad about hurting the feelings of other people in the digital space. Patito view this site as a challenge where the winner is the user who creates the biggest argument, the user who upsets the most people in the most dramatic way. Patito wants to be the user getting the most attention. Patitos behavior discourages many users and makes for a less vibrant Pixdaus community. New users may not post because they fear ridicule. Established posters may leave the Pixdaus community because the noise has overwhelmed the real discussion. Patito can make an entire community paranoid, leading users to become negative or to accuse a user engaged in normal criticism as a troll. Remember, Patito feels rewarded by creating the biggest altercation possible. He wants to get a reaction out of you. When you fight with Patito, he wins. When you reason with Patito, he wins. Any time that you give Patito attention, he gets exactly what he wants. The best way to deal with Patito is to ignore him. When you ignore Patito, he doesn't get the satisfaction of creating an escalated conflict. If you decide to leave a discussion because of the negative tone, do not dramatically announce that you are leaving. While that message may make you feel better, it only convinces Patito that he is winning. Ignore Patito! Don't answer him. Don't vote for/against his pictures. Simply IGNORE Patito and his troll names!
