    Wanting to verbally take down a user or a forum is douchebaggery. But part of the strategy of being a troll is to avoid obviousness. If it's obvious douchebaggery, then there's no way it will work out because then people will be on the alert (thus the saying, "don't feed the trolls"). A troll has to put on the appearance of sincerity, and usually this requires taking a feigned interest in the forum topic. In the case of one very famous troll post, the troll was pretending to be an American complaining about his own country. In fact, he was a Brit stating common European complaints about America based on stereotyping of American culture. If he had been seen as just another non-American America basher, his troll wouldn't have been so successful. As it was, the forum members were so taken in by the OP that their entire energies were put into responding to the troll thread, which became so long and complex, and which was cross-posted to so many other usenet forums, that it became severely disruptive of normal activity on many other forums as well as the original one.

    That IS amazing.

    i'm sure people think I'm a troll on the forum, but the point is, people also think that they're the center of the universe and that society would fall apart if they died so not gonna make much stock into that. In other words I know who I am, you don't need to know who I am. But you do have to understand me, but you can think I'm a troll, it's fine

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I just thought I'd add my thoughts. I'm usually pretty shy.

    A true Troll is the kind that hangs out on youtube and says such trenchant, illuminating remarks such as "Lol, Gay! White Supremacy."

    Ya know who else was a truly legendary Troll of the highest order? Fred Phelps (T.B.H.H.I.P.- may he be Tormented By Hell Hounds In Peace). Wow, what a pioneer! And total shitbag.

    And you know who you are WITHOUT having a firm idea of your personality type based on taking hundreds of online personality tests, as some people do, those who tend to respond to questions with "not me" or "this is me" because they've taken too many tests.

    He was a shitbag, not a troll. It's not as if he wasn't sincere, because he was. Someone who shouts racial supremacy on youtube is not necessarily a troll. An attempt at trolling must feign sincerity, and it must be obvious to some but not to others. Those "others" who buy into the troll's game only serve to feed the troll and the drama that ensues.

    You're too gosh-durned fast. Look back at my edited post.

    ... I'd like to see the Disney version.

    I don't think you're a troll. Not once. And this is coming from a guy that has been told I am trolling a lot, when it was news to me. What did you say @Jennifer? "ENTPs seems to more regularly phrase things in ways other considered "trolly." It's kind of like they have a sixth sense on how to phrase things in a way that will instigate a response. "
