New Research on Trolling

34 replies 367 views Edited Feb 19, 2014

I have not taken a break from trying to make the virtual world a little more comfortable for us.  I have found this article that I would like you guys to read.  Read Here

 

As some of you may know, I am not one to debate my posts.  I just put them out there.  I will try and come back with some responses if replies are left.  Enjoy the article.

That article was pretty funny.

 

''I enjoy physically hurting people,"

 

"I enjoy playing the villain in games and torturing other characters."

 


That article didn't specify whether or not those statements came from 1 person or just  2 different people. Sounds like the article is trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill, if you ask me.

Trolls get too much attention. Ignore them.

I rarely get ignored when I troll.

 

Never been banned either.

Only not on here. You have to just ignore them in general. Ignore only works for PM's.

 

As for the article: I wouldn't doubt that those who troll have their own issues to deal with. They're sick... period. And I do my best to avoid them when I can.

There needs to be a guide to ignoring trolls, I swear some people just can't help but acknowledge them.

Some people think it's "trolling" when you win an argument against them or when you simply disagree with them.

Trolling is the backup plan. If you're caught out for being an idiot, just say you're trolling!

Person A: 2+2=5
Person B: No it's not. It's 4 you moron!
Person C: Yeah, how can you be so stupid!?
Person A: (Oh no! I've been called out for my stupid, uneducated opinion!)
Person A: TROLLOOLOL U GOT TROLED HER HER DUR DUR

Person's B & C: **bleep**, we sure got trolled there!
