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.
MathMan has it right. You can see remains of trolls that have been exposed all over Scandinavia, mostly in Norway above the treeline or sometimes by the southern coastline.
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
