Level 69 Troll

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

I want to learn to be a troll. I picked Troll originally because it seemed most fun, but clearly, if you’ve read my attempts on these forums, I don’t know how. I would like some lessons.

I know trolling doesn’t simply involving calling people “fabulous persons” or “fine upstanding member of societys”; those are just accurate descriptions of the poster and so don’t insult them. There’s an art (not emo kid art) to it and I’m hoping to pick up some general tips and possibly apprentice to a master. Could anyone who knows how to troll please teach me?

An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial and usually irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, with the intention of baiting other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion.

The term troll is highly subjective. Some readers may characterize a post as trolling, while others may regard the same post as a legitimate contribution to the discussion, even if controversial. The term is often erroneously used to discredit an opposing position, or its proponent, by argument fallacy ad hominem.

Often, calling someone a troll makes bumumptions about a writer’s motives. Regardless of the cirgreat timesstances, controversial posts may attract a particularly strong response from those unfamiliar with the robust dialogue found in some online, rather than physical, communities. Experienced participants in online forums know that the most effective way to discourage a troll is usually to ignore him or her, because responding encourages a true troll to continue disruptive posts — hence the often-seen warning: “Please do not feed the trolls”.

Frequently, someone who has been labelled a troll by a group may seek to redeem their reputation by discrediting their opponents, for example by claiming that other members of the group are closed-minded, conspirators, or trolls themselves.

Edit: More proof that the Wiki is very informative while telling you nothing useful.

I don’t claim to be an epic troll or anything, but to be a good one all you really need to do is make the other person feel like they are making you look stupid, when in reality they are failing epicly.

According to the most accomplished upcoming troll on these, the ForumWarz forums for discussion of things relating to ForumWarz (and other topics, in the specified subforums), the prime directive you are required to follow for successful trolling is to be as verbose as humanly possible in order to prove to all posters who cannot follow your over-complicated prose that you are extremely intelligent compared to them and so there is no use arguing against you; a mere 3-page exposition on their flaws should be sufficient to prove your victory in all flamewars with them past, present, future, and indeed in any other time periods yet to be described that those three designations do not encompbum by definition. It is completely and positively unnecessary to follow established rules and regulations for ejaculating thoughts in coherent sentences provided your posted ASCII is comprised of a veritable baker’s dozen of “ten dollar words”, to use an expression rather more suited to commoners than aristocratic and scholarly contributors as we happen to be.

I’m still not getting it.

@Fail: see the OP.

@Paraone: I do that all the time. Am I already a troll?

@BoP: But I’m not a mean person, I’m a nice person. Except when I ban people, then I guess I’m mean. And I do speak my mind, and I’m not a fabulous person head. I don’t even know what one is. Are you one? Could you tell me how to become one?

@Bigguyinblack: I read the wikipedia entry but I don’t trust wikipedia. Are you saying they’re accurate in this one case?

@Fail: But if they make me look stupid, then how does anyone else know I won?

@Amasius: Oops. Guess I won’t ask you any questions then. Thanks for that advice; I’ll add it to my limited repertoire.

@Sancdar: That looks like it takes too long. While I’m certainly capable of going on and on and on, doing so just seems rather forced, and would take too much of my time. I don’t have a lot of time, so I’m looking for ways to troll that wouldn’t take a lot of time. If there’s some less time-consuming way of trolling, I’d find that information much more useful, and would presumably adopt those methodologies as I continue my pursuit of adeptness as the fine art of the troll.

tl;dr: More advice, please!

It was very brave and noble of you to put yourself up as an example of falling to that technique.

OP IZ DA NOOB

HE SUXXORZ AT TROLLING

But anyway. I define a troll as someone who does things for the sole reason of ****ing others off. While calling someone a fabulous person fine upstanding member of society isn’t necessarily successful trolling, calling someone a fabulous person fine upstanding member of society when it’s sure to get their backs up is.

A successful troll builds up hatred, then feeds upon it. Instead of making one big troll post, make lots of little ones. The successful troll is the boil upon the bum of a forum. Wherever there are decent topics, the troll is there to derail them and then dance upon the still-warm wreckage.
