Re: Why do people troll?

[ Edited ]

I think there are plenty of reasons, good and bad, on why people who troll others on the internet. Some can range from feeling inadequate to doing it for the laughs. Also they troll because they might feel disrespected by others who may have gotten under their skin, both intentional or unintentional.

 

But still, it doesn't excuse them for what they have done wrong in their part and need to hold themselves accountable.

As long as they're honest about themselves and at least explain what motivated them to lash out on others, we all can come to understanding to their situation. It takes dialogue and becoming an ear to them and listen to what made them act that way.

The real question is why do people have such thin skin?  Why not just block and move on?  What do you expect from the internet.  This thread was obviously from the Home forums.  Land of trannies and sissies lol.

I only troll in videogames when I get reallyboard.  Most people troll on the internet to get attention, or they are bored..

I do it cuz it's funny. And I only troll when the moment is right. I don't really look to troll someone.
