Stick to the story, make it believable and don't be a prat?

<sigh>

I know it's shitty to troll and I hate it but at least make it a decent attempt when you do so!

Is there a troll ? What thread - I'm hopeless at spotting them

PaulAnkaTheDog Sun 08-May-16 21:27:00

It's not a taat. Influenced by a recent one but it's what I've been thinking for a while.

ErrieErika Sun 08-May-16 21:30:16

I didn't know there was an obvious one?

Think they can be fun, in a sense when they bring out other posters stories but tend to agree with you.

Condemning trolls is an essential activity on any internet forum. How else can the regulars signal their virtue?

Sparklingbrook Sun 08-May-16 21:44:30

What's that supposed to mean ascasualobserver?

PaulAnkaTheDog Sun 08-May-16 21:47:41

Oh acasualobserver just wheesht.

Troll MN , end up in classics. You don't have to put that much effort in really.

I think we need a Wedding AIBU topic because I am sick of it already.

PaulAnkaTheDog Sun 08-May-16 21:50:02

Olive groves and Maui Coconutty!

I love troll hunting on here... Bad I know but I cant help myself :D

Sparklingbrook Sun 08-May-16 21:51:24

It's more spotting than hunting. there's little or no hunting to be done.

PaulAnkaTheDog Sun 08-May-16 21:51:49

I concur Sparkling. There seems to have been something in the air the past few days.

UterusUterusGhali Sun 08-May-16 21:52:04

I remember Showy & BoF's pomander thread.

That was good ole fashioned trolling.

Not like the goady & emotional stuff of today.

Did you catch the wedding one as well Sparkling? It would usually have been run if the mill but I recognised the username and remembered the olive grove and tindr. Not even a name change! A prime example of making an effort.

Sparklingbrook Sun 08-May-16 21:56:10

I want DanSnowBoss back.

acasualobserver Sun 08-May-16 21:56:15

Internet forum cliché #1: the trolls ain't what they used to be.

Sparklingbrook Sun 08-May-16 21:56:53

Is that all internet forums?

Vardyparty Sun 08-May-16 21:57:36

I might make a wedding thread up to see if canI get a1000 posts,.classics,an article in the DM, and a mention in the talk round up.

PaulAnkaTheDog Sun 08-May-16 21:57:40

Offended on a personal level acasualobserver?

Cutecat78 Sun 08-May-16 21:59:02

The dead baby name and the sister one? I thought that was iffy so didn't post.

It's a bit fucking sick tbh.

PaulAnkaTheDog Sun 08-May-16 22:00:55

I didn't see them cutecat. I was just meaning the daft thread really.
