    Huh? Trolls have been a phenomenon even before the internet, on BBS boards. They are an actual reality. It's not some deep psychological issue with the people calling it out. Even trolls will admit they're trolls.

    Sometimes trolls call other people butthurt. It could get real easy to mix the two situations up.

    I'll leave it at that then. I thought this was a general question about trolls.

    serioulsy people take a reading comprehension class, it astounds me how far off you all are.

    i'm not asking what is a troll or what is butthurt,i'm asking why this happens. and no i'm not talking about when someone mistakely calls someone butthurt, i'm talking about when its obvious to everyone that they are.and i'm not talking about when someone is a troll and gets called a troll, i'm talking about when someone calls someone else a troll out of anger. seriously people.and further more calling me a troll because you failed to understand the question isn't cool either.

    "Why" questions are generally difficult. People may just be posting because of some perceived level of relevance.

    Thinking someone is a troll may come from disbelief in the sincerity of his/her posts.

    These are the only times I suspect that someone is trolling--when I believe their posts aren't sincere.

    Sometimes, posts seem to defy common sense. This observation, when combined with a history of posts aimed at eliciting emotional responses rather than stating sincere opinions, can cause me to think someone is trolling.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    You put this in a general psychology discussion, so most are going to assume you meant to address a wider subject about "trolling". Your original post is kind of vague and open ended. Now it sounds like you had something specific in mind, about "in grouping" and someone going against the grain with unpopular opinion.

    I can appreciate that subject too, and I agree it's bullshit if someone with a different opinion just gets labeled like that.. but there's no reason to be "astounded" and make insults about people's "reading comprehension". All you have to do is elaborate.

    The irony of this is that the OP heartily endorsed this view, and it's at least equally applicable to the troll who thinks everyone is butthurt because they cry foul.
