Internet troll: In Internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, either accidentally or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response ...

Yes, I know that :D ... I mean, someone could be trollish for a number of reasons and can unexpectedly contribute.

Which is why it's best not to concern oneself too much over it.
I actually miss our old troll (not mentioning any names) but it seems we have a new one (again, not mentioning any names) whom is particularly neurotic and pleasingly offensive. :twisted:

Are you so sure you're White? One man's troll is another man's provocative thinker; what makes you qualified to render judgment and then employ behavior that would be condemned as trolling if done by others?

Because I like to (and can) give better than what I get is why.

Yeah, I stoop to their level (and surpass them) so what?

I figured that life's too short to be bothered about being/not being selfish in the face of constant selfishness from others.

If you cannot beat them, join them. So yeah, I am 'queen of the trolls' so little, inexperienced trolls don't know who/what they are messing with. lol

It's not a positive thing to have to constantly be cruel to avoid being hurt by sadists. It's draining.

I strongly suspect some of the posts here are funded propaganda:
