    Default Why are trolls...trolls?

    I mean why are they not called dragons

    or leeches

    or ticks

    or lice?

    Or mosquitos(they're pretty annoying creatures)?

    And what makes a person become a troll?

    What mishap turns one into a troll? Bad magic? Scary mother? What?

    Do they always avoid Billy Goats, Val Kilmer and wand weilding midgets?

    Do they always lurk under bridges and jump out, trying to scare passers by?

    Can you turn them to stone with magic acorns?

    What's a troll's purpose?

    Do trolls know that they're trolls?

    What about reward? What's the payoff for being a member of troll kind?

    If you are a troll, are related to a troll, hope to become a troll or have ever been eaten by a troll, crawl out here and enlighten all the other mythical creatures of this realm.

    And remember...play nice and have fun or I will turn you into a mosquito or a fly and a toad will eat you up.

    Also, don't speak Elven because no one will understand you.

    The verb "to troll" refers to the act of slowly dragging a lure while fishing as bait, and this is the fundament of the internet jargon. It remains unclear if engaging in the practice of internet trolling dooms you to transform into an "under the bridge" type of troll.

    It's just a label to describe something. I find etymology quite boring and tedious so I leave that matter to others.

    To me, a troll is someone who causes discord regardless of their intention or self-knowledge of their behavior. You know one when you see one.

    True, but the term was used in Norse mythology to refer to a menace. According to the Wikipedia, our modern usage of the word still has its origins there. And in the 1970s, the military used the term to refer to tactics designed to illicit a reaction. Still, the purpose of trolling the fishing line is to catch fish. The purpose of lurking under a bridge is to catch Billy Goats, to disrupt, to catch off guard, to illicit a response. So, I sort of played with the terms a bit.

    Besides, trolls under a bridge are more exciting.

    Do you know that if you poor water on a troll it just grows bigger and bigger? No joke.

    if we think of a troll as someone under the bridge that makes sense. one person comes and pokes the troll with the stick, and angers the troll, but it is the person with the stick's fault but they don't get in trouble cuz they look normal in society, while the troll is the one who gets punished. because people are racists against creatures living under the bridge. and maybe the troll wouldn't be an issue if the people with the sticks would get their eyes jabbed out.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Wow - that's actually quite profound when you stop to think about it. Thanks for the interesting analogy there!
