Since it was pointed out in another thread

Who thinks I'm still trolling(as thats all I know how to do) the board and who doesn't?

I have not done anything to indicate the former.

Your problem is important to us and will assist you as soon as the next avalible costomer rep. can answer your call.

Everyone is trolling for reactions. It's the type of reaction that one desires that is important.



(once again, first to post in your thread... am I bugging you yet??)

No not everyone is trolling and yes the reaction is based on your personal feelings. As in Dare's thread yesterday, because you are a writer you responded....... the way you did. But as for everyone else, not the same response.

I think I'd be less worried about what others think of you and more worried about the fact that tiny seems to be stalking you.......

Be afraid, be very afraid....

Had nothing to do with being a writer. Had to do with the fact that I know what's right and what's wrong. Had to do with honesty and not taking credit for another's work, even in the most minimal way. It's dishonest and it is stealing, even if it's only ideas or credit regardless of whether money has changed hands or a thousand people have posted it before. There's a purpose to that little quote button, it's to give credit where credit is do, even if it's author unknown.

And yes, everyone is trolling for a response otherwise no one would take the time to post on a forum. The type of response is what's important. Whether you want to get a laugh or cause strong feelings of hope, or whether you want to see exactly how angry you get someone, it's all looking for a response which is in essence, trolling.

According to Wikipedia:
An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial and usually irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the intention of baiting other users into an emotional response[1] or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion.[2]

99% of the posters here do not troll, even in "Off Topic".

I'm OK with the honesty, credit where due and all that other stuff. I guess you gotta pick your battles.

Isn't it sad that honesty is a battle to be chosen.

Need to know your definition of trolling before I can answer that question.

Well, my hair kinda looked like that this morning.

I'm not going to answer if I think somebody is a troll or not. I can tell when somebody is trolling or fishing. They throw that hook out there and see who bites. I don't. If I feel emotional about something, I refrain from posting until I've cooled down. It is only the Internetz.

I will say that you can tell a lot about the character of a person based on what they post over time. I then choose whether or not to give their words any merit.
