When they graduate from the GENXXX school of trolls
Evil troll school? Hmmmm.....Do they have a distance learning program?
Trolls are commonly found in places such as youtube, 4chan and many other sites. Trolls feed on making users upset. If they can find an ample food supply they will stay. As time goes on a site will be infested with trolls and they will attempt to resort to cannibalism unsuccessfully. A troll infestation can lead to regular users leaving and not getting ad revenue. Don't take them seriously and they will leave. A troll will know they are a troll but they can sometimes be mistaken for extremists.
my names the One.. and i am a troll. with gods help i cant beat this terrible affliction.<br />
its been zero days since my last troll
Trolls smell funny, like rotten meat so they should be aware...<br />
Test? I heard trolls can't swallow vodka!
LOL good drinking bender
Oh yes they can!
Not sure...sometimes I wonder if i am a troll. but truth is I am just a *****
Here's a simple test.<br />
Question 1: When you come across someone on TV or radio who you don't like, what do you do?<br />
A) Have a bit of a grumble with your friends then switch channels.<br />
B) Contact that person through Twitter and tell them you hope they die in a plane crash.<br />
Question 2: You notice on Twitter that singer Cher Lloyd is wishing her mum a happy birthday. What's the correct response?<br />
A) Do nothing.<br />
B) Contact Cher, telling her to shut the f*** up or you'll kill her mother in front of her.<br />
Question 3: A teenager has died in tragic circumstances. How do you feel about this?<br />
A) Obviously very sad.<br />
B) Very excited. You're about to have a right laugh posting "jokes" of a sexual or violent nature on the Facebook site set up for tributes — and posting not in your own name but under a made-up one.<br />
If you answered "B" to any or all of the above questions, you are an internet troll
This was an English version but you get the idea
Yes, there are self-proclaimed trolls on EP. There are certain characteristics, not sure it is a test. Among their characteristics trolls "hunt" in packs, usually a troll paired with another creepy person, who is probably one of their alter-ego avatars. They like to answer each others questions and they are quite annoying. You will see that they post questions about each other.
Oh, I think they know. Although, some people are really just that clueless and/or tactless. You just have to wait to see if the behavior is consistently troll-like.
