What are you, a bunch of nerds or something?  Quit using it.  It makes otherwise intelligent people look like little children name-calling.  Find something more clever or just keep quiet.  I would love to see the dudes discussing the NYSE on CNBC being like "TROLL!   TROLL!   TROLOLOLOL!"  Seriously.  This is the reason none of you scored any pussy in high school.

Whoa there. People use the word troll in different contexts. If it is being used in it's correct context why are you so concerned?

You know what context I mean -- calling people trolls in response to a dumb, off-topic, negative, or oppositional comment.  In this case, "correct" context is a matter of subjectivity, and in my opinion, this context is reserved for hideous gnome-like creatures living under bridges.  It's a bandwagon word, it shows no originality or thought, it makes the person who says it look equally stupid, it's too frequently used (especially towards those who support bitcoin but happen to have legitimate concerns about it's current state or future), and it's simply unappealing.  Imagine being a newcomer to a town where everyone is running around calling each other 'trolls.'  It makes the community look extremely weird and I'll bet that it does nothing to encourage new Bitcoin users to become part of it.

Thank you for exemplifying my point.  It's a teenage wasteland.

A troll is someone that says things (regardless of whether they believe in them or not) in order to piss people and make them strike back, it's kinda like shaking a stuffed animal at a cat and laugh as the cat starts fighting it.

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!

Yeah, I get that, but I'm pretty sure that people living outside of their basements wouldn't know what you're talking about.  This forum acts as the main hub for all bitcoiners who wish to communicate with each other.  The word 'troll' is so commonly used and all it does is add to the impression that Bitcoin is only for the super-techies and the extraordinary nerds.  And, it's used when people have legitimate concerns about Bitcoin.  On one of my first posts about Bitcoin after I got out of the Newbie thread, I made a serious post about the philosophical shortcomings of Bitcoin as a future currency (even though I also stated that Bitcoin was better than traditional currencies to this point).  I got slapped with troll claims and some guy said something along the lines of, "If this guy continues to post and becomes a member of the community, I'll eat my words."  I forget who he was, but he can suck it along with all the other "troll" screamers.  It's immature, it's thoughtless, and it seems like more and more people say it when the other person is actually right.

What are you, a bunch of nerds or something?  Quit using it.  It makes otherwise intelligent people look like little children name-calling.  Find something more clever or just keep quiet.  I would love to see the dudes discussing the NYSE on CNBC being like "TROLL!   TROLL!   TROLOLOLOL!"  Seriously.  This is the reason none of you scored any pussy in high school.
Hey! You just worry about that 10hours of prayer..... (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=27500.msg374431#msg374431)
There should at least be 244hours of that by my count

244 hours of prayer for what?  Someone requested 10 hours of videotaped prayer, I asked if they were serious, and they did not reply affirmatively.

Too Long; Didn't Read.

Basicly people say that to point someone wrote way more than they are willing to read, or as an indication that a summary of the preceding wall of text follows.

Are you guys seriously this dense?  This is part of the reason that the average citizen wants absolutely nothing to do with Bitcoin.

Now really. You can't say things like that. This is reducing people to an unfortunate minority.

I'm reasonably sure these guys didn't score any pussy even after high school.
