Internet Trolling - A Reposting for New Members
 
http://www.parrotforums.com/images/m...ity/posts8.gifhttp://www.parrotforums.com/images/m...ity/posts6.gifInternet Trolling For those of you that do not know what internet trolling is I want to give a little information on the topic. We have had trollers here on our forum in the past and will have again. This is a person that will enter into a blog or discussion forum for the specific purpose of causing trouble. They will present a point and look to get into a conversation for argumentative purposes. In the trollers mind they are always correct and everyone else is wrong. The best way to handle the troller is not to engage them at all because that is what they want. He/She is divisive and argumentative with need-to-be-right attitude, "searching for the truth", flaming discussion, and sometimes insulting people or provoking people to insult him. Troll is usually an expert in reusing the same words of its opponents and in turning it against them. He (and in 90% of cases it is he) tries to start arguments and upset people. If you suspect someone as a troll please send one of the mods. a PM saying "troll alert" and you can also leave that message as a response in the thread. This is not a free speach forum. That is why we have moderators.


So be on the lookout and recognize the troller. It is against forum policy and the troller will be banned!!

Re Posted for everyone's information. When you feel that someone may be a troller the most important thing to do is not to engage them. This person will try to start an argument with you on any topic and may to sound like an expert.
