I think it is someone who just wants to be mean for no reason except to hurt others.

but there are others who I think have been hurt who are retailiating against those who hurt them. Do we consider them a troll?

I go back to the first one ....no reason just attacks others. The second one I think is more "hurt" driving the person. For these people I hope that amends can be made. Just my thoughts.

What are your thoughts?

I am here for fun with my friends. I don't see any fun it calling people names. Debate is great but civility is the first rule even if you disagree

Morning Denny, well I agree but everyone is human and hurt feelings can cause someone to give back what was given to them. I think what is scary are the people who have no reason to lash out at someone...those I feel have some real issues.

But one thing that I feel we should all remember is we don't really know how someone might react to be called names or just being really mean. I worry if that person is really sensitive they might get very depressed. We don't know for sure how fragile someone is.

Depends on your definition of a troll...

Some trolls are just obnoxious people you'd encounter anywhere.

Some trolls are cowards who hide behind the (not quite) anonymous nature of the internet.

Some trolls "push your buttons" just to get a reaction (for the lulz).

If you venture onto internet, you enter at your own risk. Contained within is the very best and the very worst humanity has to offer. Developing a thick skin to shrug off the troll attacks or wearing asbestos underwear for incendiary replies is recommended.

Yep, just like diabetes.

Type II trolls are made not born.
