Angry Beaver: Internet troll
In internet slang, a troll is a person who starts quarrels or upsets people on the Internet to distract by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses and normalizing tangential discussion, whether for the troll's amusement or a specific gain.
Researcher Ben Radford wrote about the phenomenon of clowns in history and modern day in his book Bad Clowns and found that bad clowns have evolved into Internet trolls. They do not dress up as traditional clowns but, for their own amusement, they tease and exploit "human foibles" in order to speak the "truth" and gain a reaction. Like clowns in make-up, Internet trolls hide behind "anonymous accounts and fake usernames." In their eyes they are the trickster and are performing for a nameless audience via the Internet. Trolling correlated positively with sadism, psychopathy, and Machiavellianism. Trolls take pleasure from causing pain. Their ability to upset or harm gives them a feeling of power.
KeithJ: yeah Echo one of those who are not who they appear to be ,,,just a rehash with another account and by the typoneese language you can tell a lot from " her / it "
It’s annoying, but there might be a way to block it from this thread, Otherwise, I treat it like junk mail: delete, delete, delete.
Thanks for the support, guys. I don’t think Wire Club takes this sort of thing too seriously,
though they say they do. Corwin knows about it but he did very little, Strangely, this bitch got my e mail address, but I blocked her THERE; I am working on doing the same thing here.
Thanks for the info on trolling, Beaver. We know it for what it is and it’s meaningless,
One of life’s little annoyances, you see.
But it doesn’t REALLY annoy me; it just distracts me now and then from other more serious endeavors. If the intention is to cause me PAIN; I have to laugh it off. If THIS was the worst thing I have with which to contend, I count myself fortunate indeed.
