Our favorite past time, Trolling. Trolling has been with us since there have been Message boards posted in Hotels, Work area bulletin boards, to our modern day Message board on the Internet.

What is an Internet Troll??
In the context of the Internet, a troll refers to a person who makes inflammatory or hostile comments, which by effect or design cause disruptions in discourse, or a post made by such a person. Trolling can be described as a breaching experiment, which, because of the use of an alternate persona, allows for normal social boundaries and rules of etiquette to be tested or otherwise broken, without serious consequences.

For the full story look here.

The Best Trolls on the Internet can be found in the Yahoo! News Discussions. The Best Trollers will be the ones that make you laugh or seriously piss you off.

I believe most Internet Trolls are decent people that are breaking loose from their own bounds. Saying things they wish they could say in real time and in person. I see it as a form of therapy for some people, an outlet for agressive behavior, and relaxation.

KEEP ON TROLLIN'!!

Down with the Troll. They are worthless members that contribute nothing to a conversation. They are attention whores screaming “look at me…oh everyone…look at me”. I say off with their heads.

Some of the greatest flame wars i've ever seen in my life have come from VN Boards forums, so many forums, so much flamage.

You'll have 40 yr old arguing with a 17 yr old, and then they both get thrashed by some 15 yr old posing as a 30 yr old female law student/mother/hardkore gamer
