TROLL...

I would like to know the definition of a troll, apparently, many of us think there is a troll among us, yet the Moderators disagree...we shall now find out. I'm addressing this and want to know who thinks we have a troll among us, and your thoughts on what makes a troll...sorry for the length, but it seems another writes long winded
threads and nothing happens, so, I presume I am allowed to air my thoughts about a troubling subject.
Who thinks there is a TROLL among us?

n Internet slang, per Wikipedia, a trolli is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, [1] 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 an emotional response and/'or [2] or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion and/or [3] often for the troll's amusement.

There is definitely a troll. Please, moderators, do something about it. Or contact Jacob. All posters annoyed by the troll would probably be wise to PM JacobJ, the forum owner, and ask that he take action.
It is amazing how blind posters are in control of subjecting others to their troll belief. It is not me, is it one of the posters whom seem to have a lot to say about everything. BTW, when do they have time to shop? Perhaps this post was started by a troll or the replyers are trolls. Who really knows? Be responsible for All contents of your post.
If it types like a troll and smells like troll..........

Kind of like something dead. Once you've smelled it, you always know.

Trolls always run away.....if the shoe fits, tie the laces.

Aren't one post of 50 sentences or 50 posts of two long-winded, accusatory, gang-banging, follower-seeking sentences of the same trollish behavior?
sojo, your posts on this thread sound extremely defensive and angry. Are you under the impression that the OP is referencing you as the troll? She is not. Although I have, as several posters noted on another thread, noticed a major difference in your posts in recent months, it is very clear you are definitely not a troll.

There is, however, a very prolific troll loose in our forum.
I don't think we have a troll. I think we have several and they come and go. One indication is if a poster asks a provocative question or makes a statement that leaves hin/her open to be accused of a noun that ends in "ist" and then disappears, he will be accused of, and may very well be, a troll.
I agree there are probably several. For a while we actually had one or two rearing their ugly heads over the course of several years. They are more prevalent in the summer. You know, when high school is on break.

I'm sure we have more than one troll. We also have those that aren't trolls but are rude, condescending, arrogant, and probably could be diagnosed with a verifiable personality disorder.

Seriously, nobody cares that you're offended.

"We" also have mystery shoppers with so much time on their hands that they have the time and energy to consider the categories of people based on their posts as to weather or not they are verifiable. What's that called?
It's called "The Spanish Inquisition!! And nobody expects The Spanish Inquisition! They have been accused of 3 heresies, sorry, make that four! Somebody fetch the comfy chair!

proudly shopping in the D.
The best way to deal with Trolls is to ignore them. If they don't get the attention they seek, they will go elsewhere.
Moderators, please control the trolls we get, it is a waste of our time and not enjoyable. Jacob, might be time to replace Moderators......

Getting rid of one troll opens the door for another, will it never end, but this latest Political troll is also a liar, and a stalker......guess it's the nature of a forum, the good, bad and the UGLY.

Our only hope is to keep reporting posts that are inflammatory. I'm beyond put out with that person dragging political arguments into every single thread.

I enjoy awkward questions and uncomfortable silences. This gas station pavement is $%^@*#& hot.
