A troll is constantly on the prowl for its favorite booty
Stomping out any new idea with creative beauty

Anywhere there is a sign of thinking and creativity
Count on it becoming a Mecca for Troll negativity

You see trolls only think in back and white
And are blind to other peoples plight

Most Trolls are too stupid to discern the facts
So, they just repeat the words of political hacks

Most trolls are rabid sinners
When it comes to truths they all are spinners

Trolls are always fearful of the truths light
Expose some truths and they'll want to fight

Trolls feed on creating strife
I wish they'd all just get a life

Trolls are like a foul smell at a dinner party: Disgusting, uninvited, and everybody is much happier when it's gone.

Trolls are the boll weevils of the internet cotton patch.

Nice poetry rant!

Well put. I think the worst thing about trolls is that they think they are more intelligent than others when they clearly only take the easy route of getting attention through negativity rather than formulating a well thought out post. They fail to realize that anyone can do what they are doing but don't see a need to because it doesn't serve any purpose.

I tend to think most of them are narcissists myself...
Narcissism Traits:
1.)A person with narcissistic personality disorder has a grandiose sense of self-importance,
2.)Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.
3.)Believes that he or she is "special" and unique.
4.)Requires excessive admiration.
5.)Has a sense of entitlement.
6.)Is interpersonally exploitative.
7.)Lacks empathy.
8.)Is often envious of others or believes others are envious of him or her.
9.)Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.
10.)They have an overriding need to be the center of attention. They must be appreciated and if you do not appreciate them the way they think you should they will take their anger out on you.

Clever!

And since this is your fifth post, perhaps you are a troll?

Just kidding...welcome to ATS, where trolls are fed by the unknowing and the experienced have to fish the victims out like so much trash from under the bridge.

A troll is also a simple name calling thing some people do if others disagree with them. You don't like my point of view? Then you must be a troll. I dunno where it came from some where on here. I saved it.


1. The tendency to deny, rather than doubt.
2. Double standards in the application of criticism.
3. The making of judgments without full inquiry.
4. Tendency to discredit, rather than investigate.
5. Use of ridicule or ad hominem attacks in lieu of arguments.
6. Pejorative labeling of proponents as 'promoters', 'pseudoscientists' or practitioners of 'pathological science.
7. Presenting insufficient evidence or proof.
8. Assuming criticism requires no burden of proof.
9. Making unsubstantiated counter-claims.
10. Counter-claims based on plausibility rather than empirical evidence.
11. Suggesting that unconvincing evidence is grounds for dismissing it.
12. Use of vague, exaggerated or untestable claims.
13. Asserting that claims which have not been proven false must be true, and vice versa (Argument from ignorance).
14. They speak down to their audience using 'arguments from authority'.
15. They put forward their assumptions as if they were universal truths.
16. No references to reputable journal material.
17. If the pseudo-skeptic has a monetary interest (such as maintaining a funding stream or a salary) his criticisms often become vituperative.

Ugh I just dealt with a trollish-post for the first time since I've joined ATS. Yes, this person's opinion differed from mine, but they were SO condescending.


Why do people feel the need to be so condescending? Can't we all just be civil when we disagree?
