    Scotsmen? Or Greeks? It's gotta be skirt wearing Greeks, right?

    Hmm.. On The Ethnography of Trolls. Why didn't this come up in any of my anthropology courses? It should!

    nothing as enervating as a skirt wearing Greek invading your personal space under a bridge and poking you with a stick screaming, "opa," in your ears.

    It should have been taught in Anthropology 101: Indigenous Philistines.

    Thank you. I would be a clown except for being a clown means you have to be a clown. Instead, I opt not to be a clown. Clowns are scary in so many ways.

    Some trolls are clowns, I bet. (kicks some rocks)

    I'm sure there are many reasons people become trolls. As an ENTP I know I have a tendency to troll, so for some I imagine it's a natural tendency enhanced by the fact that they are not as accountable for their actions online, for others it might be something deeper. As with everyone my policy is to not make assumptions but to steer clear if they cause me problems.


    Taking a concept to it's logical end is rarely logical or relevant to the subject at hand.

    But generally, trolls lie, exaggerate, misrepresent, and often even openly enjoy the chaos and disruption they create. When you see these behaviors, they are evidence of trolling.

    I think there are behaviors that are somewhat similar to trolling, but are not. They include things like:

    1) Playing Devil's advocate.
    2) Trying to create cognitive dissonance. (A necessary thing to change a person's mind in a rational way.)
    3) Pointing out injustices by authorities.
    4) Just kidding around.
    This does clear up my impression of trolling a lot. I had thought of those things as "trolling for good".

    but...

    What if you're just kidding around, but someone doesn't get it and takes you seriously, and then instead of clearing things up, you keep up the joke?

    One person's whistling a tune is sometimes another person's stick-poking. People who take offense are often willing to see intention in someone else's actions, whether it was there or not. Regardless, we are always responsible for our own actions. For every "troll" who flies off the handle at the slightest hint of music, or the smallest twig, there are many who will offer a more measured reaction.

    jesus I wasn't saying we aren't responsible for own actions. I'm saying that sometimes people are dicks, and the real trolls are the ones thats purposely evoke such an action. and that's such a blanket statement, not every laugh or word has that intention. but there are few that do. it pisses me off that you are not getting what i'm saying, no i'm not taking offense at what you say personally, or think you're doing anything on purpose, I just think you don't actually get my point.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    So, my next question is how do you troll [as in the luring way] a troll? When does a troll get trolled? Kind of like when does the hunter become the hunted? So, when does the troll become the trolled?
