I don't know if there is any history of this issue involved here, so just comment on the face of it. Yes, I agree with the idea of there being two different types of provocative posting. The difference I think originates with the seriousness of the posters message. With a troll post the message is ...

As someone who occasionally bans trolls from this site; my definition also includes the posting history of the member rather than one-off provocative posts. Usually trolls are obvious to spot because very few (if any) of their posts are participatory rather than provocative. Occasionally there are ...

A prominent contemporary source defines "troll" as: "One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument." As savvy board-users, what is your definition of "troll"? And what is your view on "provocation" as a ...

1) i stand corrected... apple has streamed 2 events: 9/1/2010 and 10/20/2012 - with various rumors for why those and no others. 2) i'm not arguing for the validity of delaying the release of the video because of bloopers. i'm just passing along the information. also, the lack of a live stream actua...

i don't believe apple has ever streamed their events live. they put up a streaming video of the event shortly afterwards, but to my knowledge steve jobs wanted to control the presentation. if something went horribly wrong, he didn't want that live as has happened with microsoft presentations. withi...

I find the logic of the topic to be along the lines of, "If Hitler was Austrian, Austrians are DOOMED". This is one guy. Period. He cancels out Einstein? He cancels out Jefferson? He doesn't cancel out anyone: He has nothing to do with you or me. There are troubled people in the world--it is a fact ...

Today Apple is launching the iPhone 5. If I'm not mistaken they used to stream these events so interested people could follow along. Now, they have adopted a policy of allowing no streaming, but live-blogging from the event so reporters w CNET, Wired, etc are sitting there literally typing in everyt...

I have Aspergers--very definitely NOT ADD or ADHD. I know people who have this and Im quite different from them. From what you say these things I identify with, and how: - Never finishing tests "on time" - I was INVARIABLY the last one to finish tests in my class. Yet I did very well academically. I...

I am gay and I actually made this mistake once and worked up the courage to ask a friend out who seemed gay, but wasn't at all, which was really embarrassing. He has Asperger's, and I've noticed that a lot of Aspergian males seem gay, so I've learned to never assume again. Being gay and having AS m...

I'm not trying to be evasive by not giving the actual numbers but I simply don't have the exact figures anymore (tried to get a copy from ETS quite recently because I was interested in reviewing this info for a particular purpose, but they don't have this on file anymore)... And unfortunately, I don...

It did not go without saying in my comment. Yes, I think it did. You're welcome to your opinion though. Haha, that's some vague way of expressing oneself, pretty vulnerable for misunderstanding by international speakers. Thanks for your input on my way of expressing myself--this is very helpful. My...

It's everyone's choice to make which side he/she wants to focus on. Of course! This goes without saying--where did I indicate differently? No, they're not entirely different. They are very similar, almost the same. They were never supposed to be merged, they have always competed with each other I n...
