Interesting sightings and Observations.....

11 replies 219 views Edited Aug 7, 2012

So ive seen through a couple people in home that new anti-troll fams are starting to arise and "bodyguard" services. Trolls have been an allround internet problem forever. Everyone gets into a couple of overy heated arguements in home its inevitable [I know someone will say "I haven't i put them on ignore"] The part in the brackets is the very very few users who actually use the ignore button. Now everyones got this "we can stop the trolls" Notion. Theres a couple thousand trolling vids on youtube about not only home but any online game wether it be 360 PC or ps3. And they all have said one line that shows that most can't be stopped..."If this console gets bricked or banned ill just buy another" And for some and most thats true. So in technical reality trolls can't be stopped just put on hold to listen to elevator music.

Home has its own CIA, Didn't you know? .....Contradiction,Ignorance,Assumption.
Everyone is a lunatic its just when will they break from the asylum, I have.
Trolling? Pfft .... Entertainment.

I don't really like to call people trolls, because I think the term is misused a lot.

I agree, Yet alot of users still openly brand it on other users, Some have even went as far as branding whole groups trolling groups.

I don't think what you are seeing is trolling but instead verbal abuse over the Internet. That is if anything thuggish and verging on harassment lawsuits. Trolls and griefers are usually tactical or socially clever and mould their pranks based on knowing how people will react.

I was always lead to believe that any form or argument where one starts the argument and is given a negative response trolling. Trolling in my eyes are these following examples...."Users running up and saying a negative remark to illicit a negative reaction" Users seeing a point of interest in a conversation nearby and saying a negative response to change the conversation to an argument"

Usual altercations that happen with me are started by me just standing in space. Users walk up and negatively comment on my avi or my ID. This in my eyes isn't really trolling but it can manifest into it. Granted yes i do get into arguements but not the childish verbal abuse arguements. Mine are more debate style.

Main reasoning for this thread was....What are these so called "bodyguard Services" and "Anti-troll fams" Doing to stop trolls? Is it like "Oh we just surround the person and mass report them" Or is it "Oh we all attack him without using profanity". I'm curious as to the methods.

TRIPLE COMBO! Sorry, don't know what got into me then.
Yes some abuse can lead to trolling. In some cases, the person instigating it might get trolled! There are people that way for people to harass them Smiley Happy
