Forum Trolls: Someone who actively watches a forum. Not to be confused with a lurker, or just a forum frequenter, the troll annoys, pesters, and generally insults any thread opened. Trolls are people who want to get on your nerves. They will usually lurk around the forums and wait for an opportunity to annoy or attack a user. The best way to ignore a troll is not to flame back, but to report and move on. Trolls are no good and should be exiled.
Examples of such trolls are Squach, Gokeefe, Hiss of Breath, etc.

Gee you really do have hate/anger issues. Try reading your own posts and how you respond to those who have differing or opposing opinions. This is a PUBLIC forum which means that it is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Topix forums and their content are not your private domain. It's not the fault of topix that you are totally incapable of dealing with differing opinions. You open yourself to negative comment by stereotyping anyone who doesn't toe your line as "pro-abuse". I post on these forums because I very strongly disagree with the AR movement and am especially opposed to the use of extortion, intimidation and terrorism. I have diametrically opposing views and opinions to yours and for that I am a troll? No, I'm not a troll, you're a bigot. Plain and simple. I find it rather humorous that the description you posted fits the majority of ARAs posting on topix. Go figure.........

When trolls find that their efforts are being successfully resisted, they often complain that their right to free speech is being infringed.

Trolls like to use multiple online identities and do not hesitate to "talk" to themselves to support their points.

Trolls have no impact on a community if people do not respond to them.

You do realize that this is a response, don't you? Folks who disagree with you post and you respond by posting this. Pretty reactionary, aren't ya?

Classroom pets usually end up being put to sleep at the end of the school year when nobody want to burden themselves for the summer...
