How To Troll On ATS- An Expert’s Perspective
Trolling is an art form. A disgraced art form, but one nonetheless (like Puns). Trolling requires smartness, levelheadedness and quick thinking. Most
people think UFOlogists are fools but I beg to defer. A lot of them are quite knowledgeable. They are more difficult to troll than an average Redneck
(but easier than an average Redneck with a Shotgun) and they can, when helping each other, tear your post apart. So let me, Satan, who has lied,
trolled and deceived many into performing bad deeds (‘allegedly’, as my lawyer would say), let me help you.
1) Know your opponent:- Go read Sun Tzu’s or Chanakya’s book. It will help you when you start to reply.
2) Don’t underestimate:- EVER. You may think your opponent is a Fat dude, but he isn’t. He is a Smart Fat dude.
3) Research Goddamit :- How freaking many post I have seen that have 0 or bad research. Pisses me off. If you start a thread without thinking, you can
just kill yourself.
4) Stay Vague:- If you can, you can keep ‘em reading without giving ‘em anything.
5) Realistic Overload:- Another technique, a better one than 4, is to give them a lot of information, but be realistic.
“The plane looked like an b-2 bomber but was smaller and had 2 more engines than the b-2” is better than “The plane was pretty big, like a jumbo
jet” is better than “Oh! MY GOD U guys!!! totally saw A UFO!! I’m so kewl!!”
6) Be respectful:- Act like you care for what they say and reply nicely. So,
“Actually, … ” is better than “No. It is… ” is better than “FUUUUUU!!!!!!”
7) Use proper excuses:- “The picture is blurry because the guy is not a professional”, “It’s a 2mp phone camera” etc.
Be careful out there. And always remember to troll responsibly.
