Sootbaiting refers to a legendary art form and baiting activity that consisted of getting a rise out of former sharty owner Soot, who was known, at times, to display a short temper. Sootbaiting was accomplished by obvious samefagging, spamming, demoralisation-coaling, shitting up his Q&A threads with meaningless requests, and accusing him of exploiting/datamining his users (a charge to which he was very sensitive). Screenshots of successful sootbaiting attempts (with samefag (You)s included) are routinely shared on the sharty as highly-valued art pieces, considering only about a half-dozen are known to exist. However, the activity itself became a lost art after Soot's departure.

It has been theorized that the new soyjak.party usurpers could fall for bait, but success is unlikely due to the accessibility of this page.

Seems to work! any nitpicking of his musical tastes is sure to make him furious and be a gem mine. He also hates muslims so much that being a Muslim is enough to trigger him. Froot is also a gambling addict so make sure to bully him on that 'teens!
Rootbaiting????[edit | edit source]
If you post make threads on /soy/ complaining about jannies he will come to post an angry reply and then delete your thread, most times in that order. Root is known to take the bait if you post some demoralisation coal on /q/.
