Should trolls be fed?


Recommended Posts



In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion. The noun troll may refer to the provocative message itself, as in: "That was an excellent troll you posted". While the word troll and its associated verb trolling are associated with Internet discourse, media attention in recent years has made such labels subjective, with trolling describing intentionally provocative actions outside of an online context. For example, mass media uses troll to describe "a person who defaces Internet tribute sites with the aim of causing grief to families." - Wiki


It is also common knowledge amongst the intelligentsia that trolls are the lowest form of life in the solar system. Yes, even lower than fungus. Psychoanalytical research has found that trolls have lost confidence in their ability to succeed in life so have reverted to an anti-success model to try and find their "place" in society. Unfortunately for trolls, they face serious discrimination in society, and are viewed by intellectuals as the posting equivalent of "bathroom mold". - Tiberius
