Ignorant question...

What is "being trolled"? (Seriously, I've read it many times in forums but I have no clue on what it means)


Title: come and fight me
Post by: LooseCaboose on June 22, 2003, 09:27:03 PM
A troll is a person who posts irrelevant, abusive or any other material soley for the purpose of attracting attention. It is believed that most trolls are very socially repressed in the real world and use the internet as an annoymous way of being able to harass people or cause disturbance. Alternatively they can be, as Agamemnus suggested, a spam bot.

Most troll posts are very easy to spot and should be ignored, theres an old saying; "Dont feed the trolls", its exactly what they are seeking and more often than not incourages their pathetic behaviour. Having been trolled, means that you have unwittingly wasted your time in responding to one.

One of the unmoderated usenet groups I frequently used had a resident troll who avoided kill-fileing by frequently changing header details and names (usually to something of a touchy political nature). His racist, sexist and general abusiveness eventually caused enough people to send complaints to his ISP and he got disconnected from them.


Title: Hey. I never waste my time unwittingly...

I put a lot of thought into it!  (Well, okay, only if 5 microseconds worth of it is a lot.)

(http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/assets/Troller.jpg)

Troller is looking for a response...ANY response, and he will chum the waters with complaints, insults, compliments, and inflammatory tidbits hoping that someone...ANYONE, will take the bait. Generally quite harmless - practices a form of catch and release. Nonetheless, he can upset the delicate ecology of a discussion forum. Once a forum becomes aware of his presence, however, all feeding activity ceases and Troller must move on to more promising waters.

That seems to be a HUGE list. Very funny. :)

or he could just be some guy doing this for kicks.  you know, post it, then come back later, have a few friends over, chuckle at their posts and the responses, then post again and laugh again. you know, the guys who have no life.  I know a few.


Title: Uh, yeah. Why is that any different that what...

Now, where's that MIRV I was aiming at DR.V a thread or two ago...


Title: come and fight me
Post by: red_Marvin on June 24, 2003, 08:13:53 AM
It fell down in my garden, expect it back! >:-D

Oh, now my seismograph says something....

I don't expect your siesmograph to say anything when a MIRV goes off. But mine might  :P

Since this topic's gotten way off post anyways.. how the heck did that story go? I completely forgot!

big goat crosses bridge, troll kicks his butt.
medium goat crosses bridge, troll kicks his butt.
smallest goat tries his hardest, kicks troll's butt.
they go eat the grass.

or at least that's how i remember it.  I'll look it up on the in-ter-net.

The MIRV that was supposed to land on DR.V lands on Troll.

They go eat humans.

That's the in-ter-net version.

Eh?

If a MIRV went off near you you wouldn't *have* a siesmograph... you'd be lucky if you had an aluminium *atom* left after it... but my siesmograph (located in New Zealand) would definately feel the blast as a crater the size of europe was gouged out...

I found a version of opera on a free disc with my dad's PCWorld mag, I use it to check that QBNZ is up to scratch in all browsers.

-Ah now I understand, the thing is that it didn't explode for some
reason when it fell down in my garden, I fixed some buggy
M$ circuits, installed linux, added some extra explosives
and finally painted it green before sending it back to you.

And it was the arrival in your garden, my seismograph sensed.

...What you're still alive??? Live in a great big bunker eh?


Title: come and fight me
Post by: oracle on June 29, 2003, 09:48:24 PM
You think I'd send you a crappy M$ product? I use only the best Linux products for my weapons.

I don't live in a bunker. Why do you think NZ is called the "land of the long white cloud"?  :king:

To much smoking? j/k

If smoking causes a "long white cloud" I'd be very surprised... but the MIRV travels straight through clouds... beat that!
