It became a fad long ago for the bottom of the barrel of society, but became mainstream cool & for everybody when it became ok to throw "Let's Meet in the Middle to Work Together" out the window in favor of "My Lying Idiots Are Better Than Your Lying Idiots" competitions.

A) so were you in the group playing DND or the group or the side pretending it was devilworship???


B) That’s funny internet trolls were specifically named after DND trolls .. because people thought they were the equivalent of a ugly coward typing away in his moms basement.

Ever since the troll and chief was elected I have noticed a trend of people bragging about being trolls and/or trolling..

Well in my day trolls were garbage cowards playing tough guy behind a keyboard...

So how long do y’all think this trend continues??



Kinda an odd argument considering the one you are calling the troll and chief actually has the power to destroy entire countries, then go on to say trolls are just keyboard commandos....

In my day we didn’t have keyboards.

And, we still had trolls...


Back in my day we didn't have food, we ate dirt! And we were grateful!

Evidently the first symptom of becoming a troll nowadays is TDS syndrome .
I have been observing certain "folks" posting styles and have came to a 6 Sigma surety that an extreme case of TDS is what leads to one becoming a "troll".

There are those that are imitation trolls that are basically pretending for fun.
Then , there are those that are true trolls that actually take what they themselves say as a dogma . Those are the ones that I speak of.

Thanks for all your input that assisted me in first drawing up the theory , and being one to provide a valuable part of concluding my research.

Trying to emotionally manipulate people finally backfiring?

It's kind of the life cycle of the typical lazy pseudo-liberal.

Produce nothing, manipulate everyone.

If you spent more time producing and not running your mouth, you probably wouldn't have all the pent up angst toward the world and need to resort to talking out of the side of your face in some slack-jawed, passive aggressive post because no one buys the programming you vomit out like a 15 year old discovering the media for the first time.

Great thread, as usually

There have always been trolls, and they exist in every group and ideology.


Edit: 7 out of your last 10 threads are mud pit. You've had some that didn't stay around too.............

What's up pot?

That was said about John Adams. That’s some trolling



Truth. Everyone likes to think they're living in special times. It's all been done before.

Rational, coherent thought was never his goal here. He was trolling.

in my day, Trolls were creatures the D&D kids talked about. The internet wasn't there, we did stuff outside, and met folks from the next town. And we didn't give a rats ass what some pasty face vegan from LA thinks about us. But we are progressing, so there is that.


Actually, the internet meaning of the word "trolling" came from a method of fishing.

You put some shiny verbal bait on a hook, threw it out into the interwebs and waited to see if someone took the bait.

They didn't put the troll creature in till later.

Fixed it for you.



What you just witnessed above is something that can be used to troll people or trigger them, if you wish.






So how long do y’all think this trend continues??



As long as there is someone that can be triggered, there will be trolls.

That makes you sound just as juvenile as when conservatives call Obama "Obummer" or something like that. If you don't wanna look like a troll, try to post like an adult.
