This whole trolling thing is kind of new to me. Am I supposed to irritate and annoy everyone, or is it just certain people? Are other trolls exempt from my "sand in the bathing suit" antics?
Someone help me--I need guidance.

I think yer thinking about it too much...if you wanna be a good troll you gotta post with reckless abandon...


As my father always said, you gotta be rude....and reckless
Do as you must.
You have to be hard and callous
In your heart and your hands.
Learn to be rude and reckless,
It'd make you a [s]man[/s]troll.[/s]

There are many flavors of troll. There's the spam troll, the cross-posting troll, the cut and paste troll. The cut and paste trolls are cute, they don't even know they're trolls. There are comment on everything, know nothing trolls, pick apart with quotes trolls, and logic trolls. There are love trolls and stalker trolls. Other trolls are rude and abusive, without a thought for spelling or grammar or sense, this troll has variations also. Some hate one person and pick fights with them (I have at least one of those). Others annoy a select group, while others go for everyone on the board. The most amusing are the trolls trying to annoy the BMORG, which is entertaining as we know how often "they" stop by (apologies to the fabulous AG, but you know what I mean). Trolls trolling trolls, that's a flame war in the making. I won't referee, but I will get on your troll ass if you cross the line. The line is invisible to trolls until they step over it.

The community as a whole eats trolls. Kinda like green jerky.

I got a question for you. I am trying to join the Troll Poster's Union, and they want to know how tall I am. Can they discriminate against me if I'm over 6 inches tall? How do you handle something like this?

I have an idea that I might just start writing letters to them with inane information related to my membership, and do this many times a day until they give in and accept me into their Union.

I can't help it if I'm 9 inches, and I find it very unfair that they would try to keep me out of their group based on that. Any help you could provide me BQ, would be appreciated.

Great thread by the way. There are so few just for us! :D
