Nobody ever really stops to think about how "trolls" could really be making high-brow commentaries about oversimplification and the ridiculousness of radical stances, amirite?

Did you ever encounter "Disko Pickle" on SH? Genius, pure genius.

In all my net years, he's the only "troll" whose name I even recall.

He was more a maestro than annoying. He'd troll, but if you responded, he never doubled back for an argument. He just poked fun at the routine pigeon-holing that was so common on SH. He was wicked funny too. I guess it was he, idk, never broke character.

Do you consider the two gay phaet brothers to be stupid?

You think too highly of your own opinion, and you are too eager to be contrary - about almost everything.

See, this is the kind of shit that I love, even if it wasn't your intention to have it interpreted in the way that I did interpret it

Except that in this case the dude in question didn't post a deliberately offensive or provocative comment or question with the aim of upsetting anyone. That would suggest, then, that you define trolling somewhat differently than that proffered by the one you just supplied.

You might as well love it because a goodly chunk of your respondents most likely define a troll as one who merely disagrees with them. I was labeled a troll and summarily blocked by four people within HOURS of my having joined, and all I did was seek clarification about a longstanding dispute between members.

I rarely see that. Most trolling is just dull and repetitive. blah blah blah...

Lol thanks for an incorrect explanation of what commentaries can't be.

It figures a troll such as yourself would show up on a post about trolls.

It happens all the time.
(not all trolls, of course)
I often see some very witty trolling
It just that those complaining
are not stepping back far enough
to see the genius of the trolling
Just because it is anonymous
doesn't mean its pointless
and just because it is not anonymous
doesn't mean it not troly

I agree. Seems to me that the trolls can be much less annoying than the people whining about the trolling.

Sometimes trolls are just assholes.

Got me there, I put all of... zero 'thought' into troll commentary. Some trolls are maestros, others not so much. But I don't 'think' much about them beyond that.

ForkNdaRoads avatar ForkNdaRoad Yeah You Are +3Reply

not all 'radical' stances are 'ridiculous.' The definition of both adjectives will vary from person to person.

Then, too, the definition of 'troll' can be quite nebulous. what is a troll? a person who posts inflammatory rhetoric to stimulate discussion? how is stimulating discussion a 'bad' thing?

There are two brothers here that I'm pretty sure are both gay and they've never said anything here that has been serious but they still get replys.

Everyone who even comments on the same post is a stalker, according to the suckiest trolls.
