Are you a troll?

Trolling is posting something just to get attention.

Trolling is posting something to disrupt the conversation.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

Someone like this is a troll, I pulled a BCB and sent him a tracking pixel (disclaimer; I didn't), turned out he didn't have an IP as he was on the Bridge Hidden Sewer Network.

Actually feel like changing my definition a bit

Trolling is reading the alt coin forum and looking at github developer threads and whitepaper documents with sourcecode
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=579797.msg6333308#msg6333308
And still having other users calling it a scam Tongue

(Hey it beats 95% of the Pre-mined Alt Coins out there just saying that seems like trolling to me compared to all the other stuff that comes out of the alt coin forum)

This is fine definition what trolling is:  Being a prick on the internet because you can. Typically unleashing one or more cynical or sarcastic remarks on an innocent by-stander, because it's the internet and, hey, you can. Nuff said.

For me trolling is usually messing with people and riling them up because it's funny, usually it's some hypersensitive moron or somebody who has a particular hatred about something and then using that to your advantage to get them annoyed. There are people out there however, like mainstream media for example who wrongly label trolling as 'bullying' ( The sugar coated word for harassment ) but that's another thing entirely, that's just being a prick, real trolls usually target people who deserve it like somebody who's being a serious hypocrite or is a generally unpleasant person, though there are some who just like to cause chaos and piss off people with a bad temperament.

What is trolling?

Trolling is the act of sowing discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

Taken in part from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_(Internet)

How is it defined?

Simply put a troll is someone who gets their kicks from annoying someone in any way they can.

For me trolling is usually messing with people and riling them up because it's funny, usually it's some hypersensitive moron or somebody who has a particular hatred about something and then using that to your advantage to get them annoyed.

Are you a troll then? And are you saying trolls are hypersensitive morons or the people they annoy?

The people they annoy and why is it so hard for people on this forum to read an English sentence? I keep finding myself reading back on my posts to make sure I haven't made a mistake and the majority of the time it's the idiot on the other end not reading it properly.

You can find definitions online, but annoying and disruptive.
P.G. is a troll, you can go through his post history.

Well you seem to get annoyed quite easily and your sentence wasn't clear who you meant. So people probably have reason to question your unclear sentences, you just seem to be unaware of this.

LOL!! This thread is awesome! Grin

I tried to make the definition that trolling is subjective comments while regular posting would be objective comments..

   But I believe that definition is completely incorrect.


Let me try and properly troll this thread..


  "You're an idiot.  Whoever posted this thread is a moron.  I would smack the stupid off this guys face if I had the chance to... Who doesn't know what a troll is?"
             
   Well this is actually a subjective comment as opposed to an objective comment so maybe my definition is correct?

 Beyond that How's that for trolling myself?
 Anyone got anything better?

 Trolls awake!  Roast this thread in the most trolling fashion you can muster!  Then we can all know what trolls really are!!

Well based on the objective/subjective definition, this comment isnt actually trolling.  It is truthful and unbiased.  The writer set himself up to be trolled because his comment was subjective and biased, based on emotion.  If ya put emotion into it, chances are you'll be setting yourself up to be trolled by default.  Which isn't actually trolling.  Cool
