Every online “forum” will almost always have member who spend way too much time there. They are usually recognized as being over-bearing, excessively bombastic and somewhat deluded.
I was listening to a radio program where they were discussing online trolls and how they tend to come from abusive childhoods, which accounts for they’re fevered Egos (even though they tend to try to give the impression of the exact opposite).
any thoughts? :)
I can’t say this forum has a true troll.
I think people take trolls too seriously…
lol Trolls also use multiple accounts so as to appear like they lots of “backup” :)

“Yeah, I know, what a Internet Troll.”
Lol… I guess you just want to affect someone. It’s an useless discussion
|Obviously, you’re not a golfer|
Am I a troll? Only when the post is too much to resist.
I do not think that there is torlss her non on the high sxistence becaus when i get on hear i feel safe and secyur and deliquent to be able to expres myrself with alot of feeling and people listen to me on hear on when i want or need help ok so you NEED to. be. better at when you think torlss are around ok?
@tigerturban, I don’t agree with this at all. A troll is someone that is – to put it in my native tongue – a windup, someone that pokes fun for the sake of a reaction. Immature as it is, it can be entertaining and I think we may all find ourselves trolling at some point, whether when bored or deliberately. It doesn’t mean you’ve had a shitty childhood.
@darcyhart, we all can exhibit triollish behaviors…What we’re talking about here are the obviously crazy ones.. we know who they are..if we can see with some clarity…
you’re pretty wacky dude. how was your childhood

@tigerturban, Yeah you definitely fit your definition of a troll…
@ijesuschrist, satap *wap* i am nice boy!
It’s now become ‘cool’ to be an internet troll, which completely defeats the purpose. True trolling is an art, it is extremely subtle and quiet, and only until the bait has been taken have people realized they have been manipulated and shamed at someone else’s expense. True trolls are rare these days, as to be an effective one you have to be extremely cunning and smart, which few people truly are. There is a difference between someone who posts inflammatory comments to get reactions, and an actual troll.
is there a point to this thread?
@andy, sure, it’s a discussion about internet trolls, duh?!?
Remember when trolls were actually funny, and their shaking things up was like a fresh breeze? I miss those days, back then it was nice when a troll dropped in.
But that was a long time ago.
Now they’re just tragic.
Have you guys ever gone fishing in a baot at real slow spede
tryin’ catch the big one? You know what I mean.
did that before. did that forever. can’t stop now! don’t stop me cause im a hurricane.
The best trolls are the ones whom you can’t tell whether they’re trolling. They manipulate narrow minded people’s emotions for truly epic lols sometimes.
@danfontaine, the “best” trolls are actually genuine nihilists, sowers of discord and chaos
The best troll is the joker.
@tigerturban, agreed. Its the ones who are genuinely SERIOUS that tick me off. There’s a few on here that get under my skin, but hey, that is on every site. Best not to let them get to you, thats what they want!
I would never call someone a troll, there are far more creative ways to understand the reasons behind everything said. I really think that you must be downright stupid to even complain about trolls, it just shows that you have absolutely nothing useful to do with your time.
