I used to see a lot of trolls on forums years ago but I think that has calmed <br />
down a bit. <br />
For one. Trolls don't have much of a history at a site <br />
meaning they post under a GUEST account or under an anonymous <br />
account <br />
or they start a real account but only post enough to troll for a little bit <br />
try to stir up trouble then they stop posting. <br />
So the accounts they use dont have a history behind<br />
it you know. <br />
Also trolls are always posting in such a way to just try and tick people off <br />
buy saying something blatantly rude or some deal like that <br />
I am new to this forum myself and have spotted some troll posts <br />
and the trollers that I have seen here like cant even spell. ha ha <br />
They must be like little kids or some drunk dummy with nothing<br />
better to do.
They turn to stone when exposed to the sunlight, don't they?
They do in "The Hobbit"
I thought that was an Orc.
Well, they live under a bridge, and pick on billy-goats gruff.
You mean, like categories of offensiveness? I think everyone has a little bit of troll in them; it depends on the topic or issue in question. But I only flag or block when that nastiness is addressed to me personally.
I never knew there were actual troll types. If a question offends me and I roll my eyes and tsk ...that's a troll to me
