You started off dishonestly doing that. From there it was down hill.

If you're really not a troll, you certainly sound like one, which is unfortunate. If someone shoots at me 99 times and then somebody points a Nerf gun at me, all I can do then is send flowers and apologize to the widow.

I wasn't dishonest. And look at the behaviour of other people there. How is that ok to you?

Amigo, we see the exact same thing posted on several different forums under different names. That's bog-standard trolling. If you don't want steam-rolled, first rule, don't bullshit us. Some of us have been doing that for a half century or so and we can spot the turd on the plate almost every time. And if it's actually creamed spinach, we'll err on the side of bullshit, because that's the most like scenario.

Not everyone is as suspicious as you are.

Not just a troll, expert troll. Don't worry, we'll keep feeding you for now.

Or as clumsy as you. Good trolls are getting scarce.

Wiki Wrote:In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into a desired emotional response[2]

Under this definition, I have seen everybody troll at one point or another. Some do it all the time, but hey, if they are liked, or a regular, thats ok, right.

My point exactly. On some forums I use my real name, on others I don't. But above all, the thing is that no matter what I do, I'm still a troll in the eyes of the clique. Without the cliquiness, it wouldn't matter what name I use.

And to emphasise again, a good, well run forum doesn't suspect people just because they're different or they're just there to ask lots of questions. If you think about it, that kind of suspicion says a lot more about the people and the history of a forum than it does about the newbie. If everyone is constantly suspecting newcomers, that means it's been trolled a lot, and that in turn means there's something very fundamentally wrong with the forum in the first place.

That kind of comment is destructive to the image of a forum. Without new members, all you have is stagnation. The idea is to make the place inviting, and the unfounded suspicions and triggerhappy accusations are counterproductive. If I ran a forum myself I would quickly weed out people like you as I would not want my forum ruined. Trolls can be dealt with quickly and quietly and without unnecessary drama.

Yeah I do, especially when they're forums on the same subject.
