I am curious to know what people think about trolling, if they ever believe there is an acceptable time to troll whether they have ever trolled themselves and just about such things in general...

I can respect that. I myself don't very often troll but once in a while I do like to get things stirred up. Some people just ask for it at times ya know?

I do it in real life. Not so much on the internet. It's not as much fun.
I like to exaggerate points of view, make straw rants, or loaf about with big ol' concepts and watch how quickly people swoop in to try and correct the little kid or how they just froth at the mouth with ad hominem.

In truth I'm just whittling myself down to a poor temper when I pull these shenanigans, but I c-c-can't stop it! :tongue:

I don't troll period, however, I will say that depending on the website and the topic, watching them can be entertaining but, it can also do more harm than anything despite it being "just the internet".

Trolls does annoy me as much as say, the political nutters that work in 'It's Obama's fault' to attempt a bias derail of any discussion on any topic. I guess I just hate that kind of troll.

I voted - wtf are you talking about? troll? theres no bridge online. It made me laugh and my first thought actually was 'wtf?'

I believe we all have a little troll in us... It is like the battle between the light and dark side of the force. It can be used for good or for ultimate evil..... mooowaaaahaaahaaahaaaaaa

I don't understand why trolls think they're so clever... It just annoys me that they earn respect for doing something that anyone could do if they felt like it...

And now I'm really wondering about the question in the last option.

People who troll regularly are generally bored losers. Not all of them of course, but the majority I have known were miserable, lonely people who troll online because they would get their face smashed in irl. Sometimes I don't mind it, but if they exaggerate personal things, lie about personal stuff etc it bugs me. In this game I played there were big enough douchebags that they would make fun of people with serious medical conditions, or claim it's fake etc. When it gets to that it's like seriously, grow up. You're making fun of people with cancer or other debilitating conditions. I happen to know a bit about this specific troll. Skinny, pale, casper looking dude who has no friends and spends all his time on various video games.

You should totally start a thread about it in the debate section.:proud:

I usually consider myself a well behaved web-citizen but every once in a while (i.e. less than once a year) I'll troll a forum. I don't do it unless I have other people trolling with me and it doesn't last very long but MAN it's fun when it happens.

Oh and I don't troll the same forum more than once unless there are special circumstances (such as the mods can't do anything about it)

:tongue:

I've trolled before. To me, it's just fun.
I'm not retarded, I can tell when it's just inappropriate, plain and simple. But I don't see why some people get so worked up over it. It seems, for the most part, harmless and funny...sometimes. Some trolls do over-do it, though.

I'll admit that I do like some trolls/trolling antics.

I do it on some stupid subject for shits and giggles. I did it once on words about Lebron James in this upcoming season to Kobe people. I told them that Lebron would have 2 seasons of every game played creating a triple-double, they laughed really hard at me. Most of the time it ends up coming out as sarcasm and is laughed off.

People that have done it around me normally with a shitty purpose. They harm the experience of personality cafe leading to a ban possibly.

When I feel down I like to troll Omegle, I try to target the horndogs.. which happens to be about 95% Of the people on there.

it just lifts my spirits to mess with someone who has corrupted what could be a rather enjoyable experience and social networking device.

It's good to know I'm not the only one :wink: Especially the last part, too hard to resist at times.

Sometimes, when they take it way too far, they make me physically sick.

For example, when there were deaths in our school in a horrific accident they relentlessly trolled facebook memorial pages and caused ALOT of serious distress. Even posting videos of bus crashes (from the inside so you could see the children get flung like poor rag dolls).

That's the only thing I can think about when I hear the word "troll", now. =|

See that's the kind of stuff that made me question if what I did was even really considered as trolling because those examples sicken me too. Makes me wonder wtf is wrong with people these days other than them obviously being passive-aggressive cowards.
