    No, I am not totally certain (where have I written that?) I merely give her the benefit of the doubt. Based on my knowledge of what a troll means, she is not one. I've met one who couldn't carry on one discussion without ending up just telling everyone to eff off and calling names (usually after the second reply) and her only contribution to the board (not GR) was always either negative comments towards other members (ie: you are so stupid) or off topic comments. She was a troll. She wasn't expressing her views she just bashed other members' views.

    In this light to me elegance is not a troll. I guess you have an entirely different rule book. I am weirdly interested in how the dynamics are constructed here so that's why I keep coming back with questions. It will pass, I'm heaving a breather for a couple of days then I wont have time to go to gossip sites.

    I feel very, very patronised, several of you trying to tell me to shut up (even when I try to clarify things so I would know) and telling me who I should not speak to.

    Oh I know, i know: tl, dr
    Never mind, I enjoyed typing.

    Well, There you are. We have all sorts of troll at GR, not just weight related one, in fact they're in the minority (be that ana/obese).

Someone mentioned here a troll also makes assumtions of other members and express them in a sarcastic manner but I've seen pure souls doing that too, so I guess that's not really a rule.

    Whatever, I'm ready to throw the hatchet into the wind, this is like real world, don't bother getting involved even if you feel there is injustice being committed because noone really cares and you get trampled on in the stampede.

    How to tell a troll






    Most trolls believe that they are, in fact, funny. Anyone who does not agree with them is obviously either: overly sensitive, has no life, no sense of humor, or is a combination of two or all of these. In many instances, one can see where troll has in fact messed up but is too wrapped in his own little laugh to notice how much of a douche they have really been. These trolls are the easiest to identify, as they often stop leaving comments when it is obvious even to a monkey with a brain tumor that they have fucked it up, or when you see a comment that begins with telling the owner of the site/picture/story/etc that they suck for no good reason. To be absolutely sure, look for the word "lulz" anywhere in their comments, or YHBT at the end of the comments.
    Additionally, attention whores are not trolls, just irl bimbos.
    Beware The Troll







    A Practical Guide

    To "troll" means to allure, to fish, to entice or to bait.
    Internet trolls are people who fish for other people's confidence and, once found, exploit it.
    Trolls are various in nature and the type of damage they do ranges greatly, such as:
    • Cause irritation to others
    • Disrupt an email list or online group
    • Steal money
    • Obtain credit card details
    • Build false hopes
    • Abuse children
    There are some illustrations of these on our troll examples page.
    What is a troll?

    The term "troll" can mean a number of different things, but in essence, a troll is a person who aims to have 'pleasure' at your expense. There are five main types of trolls. The first four are people who pretend to be someone that they are not - they create personae that you think are real, but they know is fictitious.
    Playtime Trolls: an individual plays a simple, short game. Such trolls are relatively easy to spot because their attack or provocation is fairly blatant, and the persona is fairly two-dimensional.
    Tactical Trolls: This is where the troller takes the game more seriously, creates a credible persona to gain confidence of others, and provokes strife in a subtle and invidious way.
    Strategic Trolls: A very serious form of game, involving the production of an overall strategy that can take months or years to develop. It can also involve a number of people acting together in order to invade a list.
    Domination Trolls: This is where the trollers' strategy extends to the creation and running of apparently bona-fide mailing lists.
    Psycho Trolls: These trolls have an unconscious psychological need to feel good by making others feel bad. Such people may use their real names on the internet, and they may not even realise that they are "trolling".
    Dealing with Trolls

    Here are some ideas to help avoid being deceived by trolls:
    • Before you invest your trust in someone - either emotional or financial trust - you should verify their bona fide nature from multiple known, reliable and independent sources.
    • ignore postings that you think are suspicious.
    • beware of off-list emails that praise and flatter, or seem to evoke sympathy. If you feel yourself beginning to like someone, ask first: how much do I know about them from real life sources?
    • if you do get involved with anyone via the internet, seek out verifiable data. Real people will provide information about themselves that is open-ended and leads to a myriad of sources which enable you to verify their genuine status.
    • if you are concerned by email list/group postings, write to the listmaster about it.
    • listmasters can also make their lists restricted, and conduct a security analysis of each list application before allowing them to subscribe. This is probably easier to do in areas that have professional associations or qualifications.
    We have more detailed information on our page on troll tactics. This page provides more information to help you recognise the different types, and tactics you can use to avoid the problems they create.
    There you go.

    i did click on this it says
    "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms."


    edit: language - bilingual, and I've lived abroad a lot but the silly use of words doesn't come from any SL interference, I was frantically trying to come up with some overwhelming image matching what I felt.

    edit again: it's the same thing Chilly already posted.

    so, you won't take our word for it, but you also refuse to read her posts to see if maybe we have a point, and yet you continue to argue that it's not a troll? is that correct?

    but not when it actually matters, apparently. you have so much of a life that you have time to argue, repeatedly, that elegance isn't a troll, yet you won't bother to actually read its posts to see if it's true, even though there aren't many and it would actually take less then arguing pointlessly over something you won't bother to find out about?
    is that correct?

    Nah, we all know that people get some lenience while having fun with the obvious trolls

    It'll happen for you eventually, you just have to find the right one.
