Like watermelon seeds, slaves brought yams over on the slaver ships. It's been passed down. That's most likely the reason.

Online Harassment:

Harassment is not an isolated event. It is not a solitary outburst. Harassment is a pattern of ongoing behavior directed at a specific target. The legal definition of harassment, according to Black's Law Dictionary, is:

A course of conduct directed at a specific person that causes substantial emotional distress in such person and serves no legitimate purpose" or "Words, gestures, and actions which tend to annoy, alarm and abuse (verbally) another person."

High-end Harassment may include:

Publicly posting private and personal information about a user (pictures, address, phone number, name).
Impersonating (or attempting to impersonate) a member.
Knowingly spreading false rumors about another community member.
Publicly revealing a sexual liason with a member without their consent.
Publishing private correspondence.
Spamming a member's private mailbox.
Sending viruses or trojan horses to a member's private mailbox.
Signing the targeted member up for subscription or free services.
Unprovoked personal attack or sexual overture.
Public or private disclosures of affection that are innappropriate to the circumstance.
Attempting to solicit information about a target from other members.
Repeated interactions with a member after they have firmly requested that you stop.
Public attempts to turn other members against the target.
Explicit or implied threats of harm to the target or their loved ones.

It should be noted that high-end harassment may be considered the equivalent of cyber-harassment or cyber-stalking in your jurisdiction.

What is a troll?

The traditional definition of a troll refers to a member of a community or usenet group who makes posts deliberately designed to attract responses of outrage or indignation. It is the troll's intent to "hook" unsuspecting members into responding,(hence the term "trolling"), thus providing him/her self with the satisfaction of knowing they have impact on others.

A distinction must be made between true trolls, newbies who are undergoing growing pains as they attempt to adjust to community standards, and regular community members who simply have strong but otherwise harmless, dissenting opinions. Trolls should be removed, newcomers assisted, and contributing community members given at least a modicum of respectful distance.

Communities Online: Trolling and Harassment

Types of Trolls

Before we begin, it's worth noting that the term "troll" is one of the most frequently cited insults in the online environment. It is often used to brand, silence or scapegoat a member with a dissenting or unpopular opinion. The purpose of this article is to assist those in online communities in determining what a true troll is and what actions can be taken to prevent their creation, welcome, and ability to inflict any harm.

In our experience with online communities, there are four types of trolls...
1) Mischievous: Such trolls have a humorous intent. Often, they are a "regular" who has temporarily adopted a new identity in order to play a good-natured prank. They are not abusive to members and rarely create trouble within a community. Generally there is no harm in responding to them. Some members may find mischievous trolls to be annoying, particularly if their presence leads to lengthy threads that distract the community from its true intent; other members inevitably find that the troll's humor and light-hearted antics provide the community with an opportunity to laugh together, thereby enhancing and strengthening community bonds.

2) Mindless: Mindless trolls have a tendency to post lengthy stories of questionable belief thus promoting good facial tone in members due to excessive eye-rolling. They are generally harmless. On rare occasion, the ficticious posts of a mindless troll may lead to insightful debate and discussion. Aside from encouraging them, there is generally no harm in responding.

3) Malicious: A malicious troll arrives with the intent of being blatantly abusive to the group and/or specific individuals within the group. One of their characteristics is that within a very short time of gaining access they begin targeting and harassing members using both low-end and high-end tactics. In some cases, the troll has a prior history with the group or someone within the group. In other scenarios, the troll is simply looking for a fresh meat market.

4.) Destructive: Around 1999 a new form of troll began to appear on the net in mail groups and online communities. The primary purpose of this type of troll is to completely destroy the group it has infiltrated. Destructive trolls may work on their own, or possibly in teams or gangs.
Trolls have two ways of gaining access to a community: from the outside or from the inside. Outside trolls are newbies or visitors who are new to the community, or only sporadic visitors and guests. They are less likely to target specific members and will be content with "hooking" anyone. Inside trolls are comprised of mischevious, bored, disgruntled, angry, scapegoated or wounded regulars who may have turned to trolling as a result of actions that occurred within the community. They frequently have a bone to pick with a specific member or a select group of members.

Unmoderated or poorly moderated environments are not only more susceptible to malicious or damaging trolls, they are also more likely to create the conditions that invite them. This is because the members themselves have very little in the way of actual power. With few other options at their disposal they will often resort to intimidation tactics and personal attack with the hope of verbally overpowering the offender. If the offender is a true troll, this will only reinforce the troll's sense of purpose, inflames his/her ire, and let him or her know who the willing targets are. Informal community leaders, those who are empathic to others or those sensitive to the slights of injustice are more likely to step forward in cases of troll attack and thus, become their target.

You're just another "Cowvan".

Cap you're the most insecure man on topix. Your insecurities make you an easy target. We don't even have to aim to hit you because you're so insecure.

Accomplishment is the enemy of insecurity. As long as you remain an unaccomplished man, you will be an insecure man.

<quoted text>I can cook really well. Baking is a bit of a challenge for me lol. But I do bake from time to time. And yes, it is true people do tend to take kindness as a sign of weakness. WE both know better though right?:) Today is a good day, woke up hair salon, shopped, nails/toes did, now bout to just relax until its time to go out later...
Ahh the Alpha Goddess has spoken :) I had a feeling that you could cook very well seeing that you are so good at practically everything else. And Today has been a lovely day for myself too.. went to the movies and caught a flick... etc..

And you have your nails/toes/hair done.. that is nice .. There is nothing better than a woman that takes care of herself mentally, physically, and spiritually.

I read some old posts of yours and can tell that you are a spiritual woman. Do you feel that you have become your "higher self"?
