Interesting timing. I have one troll on local community forum who is after me for couple of years. I have him on ignore filter, but he gets quoted by others.
Admins are not preventing it from happening in long terms. They asks him, he gets quiet for few days and then bullying resumes. Last outbreak was yesterday.

I'm always amazed at some of the input that appears on the websites of media groups like TV networks and daily newspapers. Some of these comments are rude, offensive, profane and in so many cases, downright illiterate. I can never understand why the web operator would publish the "work" of people who are clearly moronic troublemakers. Are they really that short of input that they can't trash more of this garbage?...TW

News and story commenting has become a disturbing trend, fostered by anonymity. I won't even read commentary under a story anymore, nor under a YouTube video. And really, why should I? Do I care what strangers think of a story? No. But the traditional role of a community to stop wacky, aggressive behavior is now gone. And it's making people more and more aggressive in their real lives.

Youtube video comments go toxic immediately. Some seriously offensive stuff is written there.
Happily if you post a video, you can turn comments off.

The Mods here do a great job of keeping things on an even keel, thank you folks!

Not having $40 to spend on the full study here are a couple of other articles that give a bit more meat from it.

http://www.sott.net/article/266289-D...in-others-pain

http://www.slate.com/articles/health...ychopathy.html

The charts in the second make me happy and sad at the same time. Happy as there seems to be ways to identify these folks. Sad as we still seem to love watching people getting voted off islands, fired because they didn't get as much money as the next guy, or stop anything the other side wants to do as they are different more than seeking success and betterment.

I think this comes under "We already knew this."

Ignore them. A.K.A. "Don't feed the troll."

Sadly I think the issue often is that offensive, ill informed or otherwise attention seeking posting often brings in a lot of traffic and so advertsing $$$ so more overly commercial forums often tend to turn a blind eye to a lot of it.

I'm sure you're right. It's the only place some people will EVER find a way to expose others to their ill-thought-out and ungrammatical rants, so they attract both like-minded and combative posters of the same ilk. The Guardian newspaper in the UK -- http://www.theguardian.com/uk -- is particularly bad for "btl" ("below the line") comments, with endless predictable drivel from a relatively small number of "usual suspects".

Seriously, it's frightening how narrow-minded, stupid and downright vicious some people are, even when they're not actively trolling. It gives one no great hope for either democracy or the future.

Cheers,

R.

As goamules said its the anonymity the net provides. I remember back in the seventies when long distance drivers used CB radios to monitor traffic conditions and routes, there were always imbeciles anonymously fouling up the airwaves.

Nothing new here.

... yes, don't you just hate ungrammaticalness? Thankfully these trolls haven't taken to swimsuits in their anonymity, that would just be so wrong.

Who decides what constitutes trolling?
quote:Trolls will lie, exaggerate, and offend to get a response

some people think that if they are corrected or offered a different point of view, well they are being 'trolled'

I've been bullied on another forum, as have others by the same person, and it continues because the mods know the troll and think that he is a nice and funny person. Even mods can have a bit of trollism it seems.

As regards trolls I follow the basic principal;

Stewart, the only solution for ungrammaticalness is to send these people into outer space, where the gramma rays will fix the problem..
