If it weren't for trolls the internet would be a boring place. Thankfully there are places where trolls can all gather together and have a giant on-topic troll fest where you actually learn shit too.

These traits could be in their DNA. If and when testing is developed to find that trait it may lead to understanding whether genetics played a factory versus behaviorism learned and / or mimicked though life experience.

Or it could be the subject in question or a close relative 1 generation removed was abducted, probed, poisonous venom inserted without their knowledge by an advanced race of frog or toad aliens. If the subject in question displays tendencies to jump to conclusions without knowledge of the facts or vehemently refuses to commit to due diligence researching the material being challenged then these mannerisms suggest frog alien infection. A thorough search of the subject's cavities for mysterious wounds, lesions, pin pricks, needle marks may reveal locus of the brain / mind control injection method. However, if the subject displays tendencies to piss on everything or everyone once said person decides their core beliefs are being challenged then there's a high probability that their brain waves regressed to that behaviorism account prior violations by toads.

These studies are in the preliminary stages. More research will be needed to validate, verify whether hypotheses of probe by frogs and toads is correct.

Trolling used to mean things like Something Awful's pranks and Is Your Son a Computer Hacker. The point was to make someone believe something they shouldn't (The Onion could also be considered trolling). Now it means flaming or spamming or posting something that is indistinguishable from something someone would actually post. It also often means "person who disagrees with me."

"Troll" does not refer to the Nordic bridge-dweller hunted in found-footage movies, it refers to the act of fishing by dragging a wide net indiscriminately.

The troll, since he does not get out much in the real world and has only wishfully perceptive ideas about what people on the Internet are like (even more so back in the 90's, when they were more wishful, had even less of an idea, and got out even less) , believes he can fool them because he is "anonymous" behind a keyboard, and later brags about how many people on a group and how often or successfully he can fool them. BRAGS, no less.
Note to one's self: If you want to keep fooling someone....don't brag about it. Duh-hhhhhh.

I can appreciate trolls. If I'm doing the trolling I really appreciate it, haha!

But even if I encounter one under a bridge, I sort of enjoy taking their bait. When you deal with a troll, you should already know they won't stop what they're doing... but what you CAN do aside from ignoring them, is make them look foolish to everyone else.

If you stick to facts and throw in some condescending attitude when you do disprove something they say, or at least discount it, you'll get 'em! They won't stop but it brings me joy when they have no ground to stand on..!

Trolls can fool others, but also be helpful in consider other things you have not thought about maybe either it being "totally random" comment.

Or you can do both at the same time both inform and make people rage

Obama has been the most successful gun salesman in history! Since he got elected average gun sales have more than doubled and in his 8 years in office more guns have been sold than the previous 3 decades!



Obama should get the "Best gun saleman award 2008-2016"

I wrote my term paper about trolls and the disinhibition effect for my English class last year.
After doing my research, I discovered I have an inner troll.

Well Obama is turning lead into gold everyday! His plan is genius:
1) Talk about restricting ammo/guns
2) Create worry about not being able to purchase ammo/guns
3) People buy vast quantities of ammo/guns creating massive demand
4) Supply can't keep up with demand so prices rise
5) Gun manufacturers make record profits due to insatiable demand.

It's fucking genius! Best gun salesman ever!
