Member 2: Dude, stop white knighting, the guy's a troll. You're just making it worse.
Introducing white knighting! A perfectly respectable act of suddenly becoming chivalric and nice by the mere presence of e-boob.
GUY: Dude, you're a guy. GTFO.
GIRL: NOOOO :(
GUYS: BRO, WTF, GET OFF OF HER, SHE'S BEAUTIFUL. Hey princess, don't worry. It's always like that here.
GUY: Dude... white knights up in here.

A person, generally a man, who is seen giving all their attention to one or many particular females online.
The most common places that White Knights dwell is on 4chan's random board and various online games towards the RPG persuasion. However, White Knights are found everywhere in the online world.
This self motivated acts of chivalry is not geared toward just saving the hambeast maidens, but also White Knights have been noted to follow the rules adamantly in hopes of either becoming a moderator/admin or just flat out want to spoil the general online population's fun of bending the rules.
White Knights are not fun, but instead stuffy, boring, and an unusual hatred towards their fellow man for being selfish, crude and misogynists, in other words: All the fun things in life.
Anons: Yeah! Let's do it!
White Knight: Halt! In the name of chivalry, you foul heathen misogunists will burn as I save the maiden with kindness and give her solace with compliments!
Anons: Eat a dick WK, stop killing our buzz.
Anon: *reading rules* No swear? Fuck that shit!
White Knight: You there! You have broken a rule! I shall report you to the nearest moderator for correction!
Anon: Eat a dick WK, you can't tell me what to do because you're not a moderator.
White Knight: Just because I don't have a tag in front of my name doesn't mean I can't uphold the law! I AM THE LAW!
