Why Do People Create Trollpolls?

Jealousy

Have a sociopathic disorder

Hope people won't recognize their impersonations

Gives them a false sense of validation

Never learned right from wrong

Can't stand seeing other people happy

Want to drag others down to their level

They think their excrement doesn't stink

They have many other pathetic excuses

All the above

I'll tell you why ... in my opinion it is because they choose to use their hearts in selective manners.
They choose to hold grudges and they choose to hate on others. Pretty pathetic if you ask me, yet there is little anyone can do to change anyone else's heart or behavior and therefore it will continue on ... forever.
Isn't that sad.
I never vote on these things and I don't know how to create a poll. If I did - I would create a more positive one.
We all make mistakes and we all BLEED RED.
PEACE

Well said! I sincerely believe that most people here on Topix are decent people. There will always be a few trolls who want to try and ruin it for everybody else.

I think loads of people use this place as a release.

Unfortunately it brings out the hateful side in some. They read the drama on here and make polls to watch others accuse and continue the bickering.

Revenue? I highly doubt it since this site is world wide. Putting that many different personalities in one room is bound to stir up drama.

That poll was aimed at the fake Harley Hunni and not the real one. She has already accepted my explanation of it and we are on cordial terms. Yes, I am not proud of that poll, but at least I am man enough to admit it while you shamelessly troll Offbeat. The poll would have never been started in the first place if it weren't for all the rash of trollpolls that preceeded it.

One bid difference. The trollpolls I talk about mention peoples names and the creator often vainly tries to impersonate others. My poll mentions no names and my user name is in blue which means I created the poll and not some gutless imposter. Your point is totally without merit which makes me wonder if you might be a supporter of the trollpolls. My goal is to discouage more of them and also show how disgusted people are with such trash polls.

Topix makes money? WOW, what a thought.
But I doubt they have to make troll polls with so many willing to do it for them.
Topix has a good hook here and we all participate.
Go figure.

That possibly explains some, but not all of them. I have seen a few trollpolls removed by the moderators. Don't get me wrong. Your theory does have substance to it.

Of course Im not saying ALL,, that would be a rediculous ASSumption..And the players here do a fine job on our own,,, But we would be foolish to think we are not being manipulated by the Topix gods.. perhaps,,,, just something to think about,, dont you think??
just my "opinion"

troll poll is a troll poll, it's meant to incite, cause a stir, one is no better than the other.
