    My thoughts on forum trolls

    Maybe there is something wrong with me, but I enjoy the trolls.
    I enjoy watching them come on full of self righteousness and a sense of intelligence.
    I enjoy shooting holes in their beliefs and then watch them revert to name calling as they have no comeback to our arguments.
    I guess I ama lot like my father who liked debating with anyone no matter how ignorant they were.
    My mon never got it but he considered it high entertainment.
    I understand that sooner or later when they get too ugly, they need Togo away.
    But I like it when we take our time before we drop the hammer.
    Am I alone?

    It ain't much fun if you're the one cleaning up after them.

    There are plenty of on line forums filled with trolls. I'd rather DC not become one of them.

    Kilted Cowboy, I enjoy watching the trolls get taken down but normally I try to avoid dealing with them, unless it's a direct attack.

    Some men can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Way too many more important things than differences of opinion
    and philosophies on a forum.

    Anyone who thinks everyone will 100% agree with you on any subject should probably
    refrain from forums.

    Do we get a lot of trolls here? I must miss them. I know there's that one CA guy that likes to stir things up but I thought DC was pretty troll free overall.

    I define an internet troll as someone who is trying to upset as many folks as possible, just for the sake of it.

    Debating with others, be they right or wrong, isn't the same thing, IMO.

    Roger that. I'm a lead mod on a closed FB forum. Cleanups get old quick.

    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    You would certainly know what it's like then, Mike.

    It's all fun and games until you're the one getting hammered.

    Out of all the mediums to have discussions; forums, reddit, etc. Facebook brings out the worst idiot per capita ratio than any other platform on the innerwebz. I really do not envy you having to babysit those morons.
