Everything here looks fine to me officer.

And if you're looking for a bump, call your dealer.

Oftentimes...trolling is simply the term used when a few people or even the forum monitors don't like the content or message of a post. There are posts which are obviously nothing but provocative or insulting comments meant to pull responses... and then there are legitimate, yet unpopular posts which are not troll bait. Even my post here will be considered troll bait by some. So much for free speech.

Quit playing the victim. It is unbecoming of you.

Oftentimes, posters are considered trolls because their posts suggest a lack of understanding of the basic concepts they're trying to argue.

For example, once in awhile a troll will post some garbage, then try to claim that private citizens or admins of private message boards who disagree or disallow the troll's message are somehow committing a "free speech" offense.

I thought we were all in agreement that blather from the laird of the Stately Manor will remain at http://www.thedailypage.com/blaska/. Otherwise, said laird would seem like a weenie for not responding to direct questions, no?

At this time I must admit that Huck is absolutely correct; Blaska is an example of civility and enlightened discourse that we would all do well to emulate.

What? You don't like it when targets respond in kind? Does that make you a "troll?"
