Seriously people, a troll is not someone who has a different opinion that yours. Read up on it if you have to on Wikipedia.

How many times will I have to see this scenario repeated again and again:*
Some poster: X card will be less profitable in the future
Troll dyslexia poster: All card will be less profitable you troll

Or

Some poster: You should think about X
Troll dyslexia poster: No, troll, I disagree.

Maybe, troll, but other trolls can inflame with nonsense opinion, obviously derived from smoke and/or mirrors. Why was troll posting about X card, when basic knowledge/search/reading/comprehension shows X is in the subset of all?

Some poster: X card will be less profitable in the future
Troll dyslexia poster: All card will be less profitable you troll
Meta-troll: What?!? He said troll to "X card" and I didn't get 2 replies! Scoff! I'll show them! Wikipedia troll reference-pow!

You're the first one to call me a troll on these forums; this issue has nothing to do with any potential offense taken by me. I was just trying to inform people on the correct use of a word. Wouldn't a carpenter correct someone who is pointing at a lathe and calling it a planer?

A troll is someone who isn't fully bullish on bitcoin! Wink

Trollology, or the science of trolling, is a long established field, going back to the Boston Tea Party of the American revolution, where white guys dumped some rich dudes tea out into the harbor dressed as Native Americans.

1776 Troll'd

I also think that it is fully possible for there to be hired trolls on this forum.

This is an ideological threat to many of the people in power, not so much economic in the present time.

There are Internet Reputation Management Firms that are hired to influence opinion a certain way on the web.

No joke.

There's no such thing as "correct" use of a word. There is only standard and nonstandard.

I think everyone would agree the use of the word "Troll" is getting rather ridiculous on this forum.

I'm gonna go around saying "Troll" to everyone else who says "Troll" to people who are obviously not trolling.

Using the word troll incorrectly is an obvious troll. It is a art, after all.

In answer to the thread title, my guess is "No." But on a related note, it sure might be handy to have an ignore function on this forum.

Ridiculous, or not, if we can't even come to an agreement on what a Troll is, how are we, as a community, able to debate important Bitcoin matters?

Can we all at least agree that this is how Trolls reproduce?

If you post an opinion that someone doesn't agree with they don't post a critical response on why you're wrong or why their argument is right (which is the standard debating system you realise) they instead just say "nope you're trolling" and ignore it. This is pretty much why the bitcoin forum was disowned by the devs because it just makes the forum look like a load of right wing anarchist lunatics, which they don't really want associated with bitcoin in such an obvious way.
