    What would you consider trolling then, example?

    That's true, too.

    My issue is that.. .... those were the research questions? "... for the lulz"??

    the problems with the term troll, is it's so loosely defined, that sometimes if you don't agree with someone, you can get called a troll. and it's like i'm not trying to ruffle your feathers, you're just wrong. get over it.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Default Internet Trolls Are Narcissistic, Machiavellian, Psychopathic, and Sadistic

    "In the past few years, the science of Internet trollology has made some strides. Last year, for instance, we learned that by hurling insults and inciting discord in online comment sections, so-called Internet trolls (who are frequently anonymous) have a polarizing effect on audiences, leading to politicization, rather than deeper understanding of scientific topics.

    That’s bad, but it’s nothing compared with what a new psychology paper has to say about the personalities of trolls themselves. The research, conducted by Erin Buckels of the University of Manitoba and two colleagues, sought to directly investigate whether people who engage in trolling are characterized by personality traits that fall in the so-called Dark Tetrad: Machiavellianism (willingness to manipulate and deceive others), narcissism (egotism and self-obsession), psychopathy (the lack of remorse and empathy), and sadism (pleasure in the suffering of others).

    It is hard to underplay the results: The study found correlations, sometimes quite significant, between these traits and trolling behavior. What’s more, it also found a relationship between all Dark Tetrad traits (except for narcissism) and the overall time that an individual spent, per day, commenting on the Internet."

    They could be killing people, they could be torturing animals, but instead, they found a much less harmful way to release their impulses. Trolls are good.

    Agreed.

    To be honest,they are also rather amusing in an obnoxious, half-baked sort of way.

    This assumes that trolling is some kind of outlet for an impulse to do something worse. I don't see any reason someone can't be a troll and spend some time torturing animals. In fact, I bet a number of trolls I've come across do.

    Seeing you guys talk about trolls like this is just absurd. It's like you are studying humour. You guys need to lighten up and learn to laugh. Reminds me of this.
