Generally, trolling should be considered a sport. So, in layman’s terms, what is trolling?

Defined by UrbanDictionary:

“Being a prick on the internet because you can. Typically unleashing one or more cynical or sarcastic remarks on an innocent by-stander, because it’s the internet and hey, you can.”

Guy: “I just found the coolest ninja pencil in existence.”
Other Guy: “I just found the most retarded thread in existence.”
 
Or
 
“Trolling is trying to get a rise out of someone. Forcing them to respond to you, either through wise-crackery, posting incorrect information, asking blatantly stupid questions, or other foolishness. However, trolling statements are never true or are ever meant to be construed as such. Nearly all trolled statements are meant to be funny to some people, so it does have some social/entertainment value.”
 
That’s UrbanDictionary for you. Keep in mind it’s user edited.
 
Back to the topic, here is some trolling videos, or just plain hilarious videos where people have gotten a rise out of someone.
 
I’ll warn you in advance, language is present!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
As you can see trolling is a common thing, its all over the internet, from gaming to forums, to chat rooms.
 
“Signs that your trolling is successful:
*Your victim screaming in all-caps at you.
*Personal attacks (Calling you a retard, idiot, etc).
*Being an Internet Tough Guy.
*Making a crude remark, before quickly logging off before you can retort.

Signs that your trolling is unsuccessful:
*Your victim identifying you as a troll.
*Identifying yourself as a troll.
*Your efforts being ignored.
*Being counter-trolled (See below)

 
Counter-trolling (Or reverse trolling) is an effective method of redeeming yourself after being trolled. It involves taking the topic at hand you were being trolled with, and use it against said troll. For example:

Jimmy: Hey Ben, I’ve got some feelings I need to talk to you about…
Ben: Yes?
Jimmy: Well I’ve been a bit confused recently, and I’ve decided…that I’m gay.
Ben: Really? That’s weird.
Jimmy: LULZ TROLLED
Ben: I don’t think you were trolling.
Jimmy: ?
Ben: You weren’t lying. I think you actually are gay.
Jimmy: I’m not man, I was kidding.
Ben: Are you sure?
Jimmy: Certain
Ben: You know, it’s alright if you are. I won’t hold it against you.
Jimmy: wtf man. I’m not gay.
Ben: We can talk about it any time.
Jimmy: WTF! I’M NOT F*****G GAY!
Ben: It really is fine with me.
Jimmy: GTFO!”

 
 
 
Generally these people are trying to get a rise out of you. I think the very notion proves many of them are daft enough to be bored enough to get trolled. Of course, counter trolling ensues hilarity by trolling the troll.
 
Not once do I endorse or condone trolling, although it can be hilarious to do and watch.
 
The problem with many of these people who are immature enough to get a rise out of, are in fact children. So, with that perspective, why are they buying games or being bought and playing games they are too young for?
 
On the topic, trolling even happens in real life, Take Steve Green for example.
 
Look forward to more posts on trolls, and likely how to deal with them!

Well, what is there to type, Currently I'm a makeshift editor. sometimes I have problems CONTROLLING THE VOLUME OF MY VOICE. other times I simply do stuff, LIKE RANT ABOUT DISFUNCTIONALITY IN GAMING AND THREATEN TO BITE PEOPLE. But majorly I like classical music, Social interaction IF IT INVOLVES BITING PEOPLE, and writing articles on the occassion about BITING PEOPLE AND RIPPING OFF VARIOUS PARTS OF THEIR ANATOMY. Insanity wolf is a meme designed to be outlandish and offensive. With that in mind, the role partook in any of my comments are done entirely from this -Fictional- Characters perspective and does not coincide with any of my own views.
