    Please forgive my ignorance,but could someone explain to me what is meant by "trolling"?
    I know that I have been a member for awhile,and can't believe that I have to ask this,but I really don't know what it means.

    I'll even give myself one of these::smashfreakB:

    Trolling is when an individual posts something for the sole purpose of starting trouble/inflaming others.

    Hi Mike,
    I must say I thought awhile before posting the question.
    But you know what they say:The dumbest question is the one not asked.

    Very true Jason. There is a catch somtimes though. Some trolls are good at this. They will join a site or just look at the posts and get a "read" on the people there. Then they will throw issues out there to tear apart the members.......seperate and concur.....this is usually done on a small part of the original discusion that may not even have any thing to do with it.

    Know your enemy.

    A troll is a troll! Google troll !!
     
  9. it can be fun given the right venue, and if you do it in a manner thats just meant as poking fun, but some folks get out and out mean and way to personal

    i will occasionally crack a joke or two at someones behalf on here, but i expect the same from them and if its funny then rock on
     
  10. Well,

    trolling is also always being on the lookout for a post by a certain member for the purpose of making your own post to make the certain member look bad, ill informed, wrong, etc.

    Most trollers make themselves come off worse as they attack but seldom, if ever, come up with any useful observations of their own.

    That's not a Troll,that's a Wish Nick. I used to play with the one my sister had when I was a kid in the early seventies.I used to tie a rope around it's neck and swing it around over my head and then launch it.You could get some great altitude if you tied there hair back as well.
