  • "Internet troll" is defined as "someone who makes intentionally inflammatory, rude, or upsetting statements online to elicit strong emotional responses in people or to steer the conversation off-topic." Loosely speaking, it's someone who offends the weak-minded, since they are the ones who feel the need to complain. Take note that there is a difference between being "attacked" and "being offended". A different viewpoint might offend someone (and far too often does), but it's not necessarily an attack on that person. But since those weak-minded people aren't capable of carrying on a debate that doesn't follow along the same lines as what they believe, they call it an attack and start with the "troll" accusations. When you have someone follow you around and attack everything you say, it's called being a "troll". Simply commenting on a question they asked or are involved in that disagrees with them (and maybe gets a little rough sometimes) is not launching an attack. But if it hurts your feelings, you can solve the problem by not getting involved in something that puts you in over your head.

      Thanks for sharing! Don't trolls keep us all entertained? That's how I see it. :D

      Having been accused myself a number of times (and banned from a few sites), I'll just say "thanks". That doesn't mean I actually am a troll, but you can't explain the difference to some people. The last line about getting in over your head is somewhat moot. They'll jump into it anyway with the mindset that the moderators have to protect them.

      As long as trolls don't resort to name calling and insults, it's all good with me.

      This meme showed up on my Facebook page. I think it says it best: "Your triggers are your responsibility. It isn't the world's obligation to tiptoe around you."

  • because the internet exists. every forum used to have a resident troll. As most of the forums are now dead there must be lots of homeless trolls sleeping under bridges now. I know of one that spent 15 years posting vile content on yahoo answers when it closed he wanted to sue yahoo to put it back up it was his work for 15 years.

      That's some career. Did he ever mention which state he represented in Congress?
  • Maybe they think that lurking under (network) bridges is fun...
  • They are probably bored and lonely and trolling to entertain themselves. If they can get somebody to take the bait, it is probably more fun than tv.
  • Since the internet is available to everyone that anyone who likes to bully others and say bad things can do so online. They are pathetic people who have nothing better to do. They should do something constructive like learning to build a bridge that they can live under.

      Triggers are not a responsibility. That’s bull$hit talk. It’s the wrong people such as trolls who cause others to be triggered because of something bad that was said. A trigger is a reaction in the brain caused by someone else to make the person feel triggered. Responsibility has nothing to do with it.
  • The internet acts as a mask, it allows those with the desire to act out their darker side, anonymously.
