Oh well if you guys insist. Here’s a helpful guide for troll identification .
The trolls I’ve known usually use one of two tactics but their goal is the same. They want to get under your skin. When they do they will ride it
for all it’s worth.
The soft troll: they use taunting bait threads, belittling language, and a condescending arrogant language and they talk down to you In a
dismissive manner. When regular posters get mad and fighting back . Because of the soft trolls lack of aggression and language they can label the
other poster a troll. Usually they operate in groups like a cackle of hyenas . Once they trigger someone to the point they can be labeled as a
troll. The group starts reporting them . Their whole goal is not just to get under your skin but to get you banned for fighting back and then
dominate the forum .
Like you said the best thing to do is ignore them . The other thing to do is be smarter than them. Wait until you can prove there position wrong
decisively with the source data . Then you rob them of their tactics. They can’t talk down to you when every time you talk to them they are wrong .
From humiliation will also quit picking on other people when someone like that enters the thread .
The hard troll: almost always a male who is hyper aggressive uses proxies, sock accounts and hunt’s at places with guest posting. Most of them
have a juvenile personality . They pick VICTIMS then relentlessly stalk them for years using pieces of personal information that they pick up during
those years . They don’t want to just antagonize their VICTIMS. They don’t want get them banned. They want to make their on line life a living
hell for as long as the can.
The super troll : Is highly intelligent funny usually only part time and has many tactics not just the above . I don’t have the words to describe
them except . Very dangerous and completely unpredictable
Then there’s the Troll hunter : Again usual male and almost always a former Super Troll. They develop a white knight syndrome because of the
need to look for a challenge . They pick out the most annoying little piss-ant then catch him off guard while he’s trolling someone . Usually the
moderators know these guys so they get a little space.
