'Trolling'

Post by Samara on Mon Jun 20, 2011 8:21 am

Alright, so the past couple of weeks, I've noticed that if person1 does something that person2 doesn't like, then person1 instantly accuses person2 of being a troll, or trying to troll.

Hope it makes some sort of sense.. My point of this topic is to EXPLAIN what trolling is, because most of this community doesn't seem to understand it and just throw the word around.


In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, insulting or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

Basically, 'Trolling' is being a prick on the internet because you can. Just because person1 may say something that you disagree with, that DOESN'T make them a troll, now stop constantly accusing each other of be troll, its so fucking annoying.

Kay here's an example of trolling:

John_Doe: (Insert smart speech here)

Troll_Face: Troolololololo stfu fagget.

That's hardcore trolling right there, but calling someone a Troll for having a different idea is being a Troll yourself or an ignorant.

Not saying you're pointing any fingers at me Sam but i think Ed did say that.

And if that's your point what i just said i think people should get the idea pretty much by.....now.

Person number 1. :Oh my fucking God! I hate your haircut!

Person number 2.: Get lost you troller!

^ This is not trolling... And I never said it is.

Person number 3: Rofl dude ur fag gtfo n die troll-fag-hater <3


^ Fuck me, rape me, do whatever you want, but I honestly think this is trolling.

For example.

Sam is not a troll because he is posting some random stuff in OOC and IC board, that is for FUN, not to insult anyone.

At the other hand, and guy with -30 rep you probably know who I'm talking about was an troll on that "Lololololo" shit topic.

So basically flaming people and such is trolling, JOKING with people and NOT insulting them is not trolling.

This is what a think.

You all just wait until you get long trolled...

Trolling is basically bagging out someone. Simple... Whether it be constructively/stupidly/likeagenius/just damn evil... Its simply giving someone the shits.

A trolling no one seems to have noticed is saying someone is trolling without actual proof. You are offending someone, and just claiming it because you think it's right not that it is.


Example:


You're such a troll.

Obvious english person gets trolled by people who can't handle englsih properly (which is about everyone who speaks english as a second language). Meh, taking the piss outta something isn't trolling (if that's what you get called a troll for)

It's basically saying useless things, to ruin things rather than do anything useful. That's why posting no proof in a claim its useless and it usually ruins things more than doing anything useful.
