To think some people on here are very naive regarding trolls?

And that there should be a list of common "weird fetishes" which trolls come here to discuss?

The 2nd tickling thread for instance...not Chaos's one...but the one which asks odd questions about tickling....I knew (as did some others) that is was dodgy right away...but people here seem to be impervious to questions like "Should boys be ticklish? Up to what age?" And asking for "stories" about can people not know that there are some weirdo's with fetishes about the strangest things out there?

Of course there have been instances where everyone has shouted troll at an innocent poster....but that will always happen on forums....I HATE that perves and weirdo's come here and get jollies because so many people are so innocent about the oddness that is part of humanity.

It puts me right off.

Whats more disturbing is that they're asking on a parenting forum about children - as the tickling troll has done. Sick.

yes, more fool us for presuming people ask innocent questions

would be so much better if we all yelled troll every time someone mentioned anything that could possibly be a fetish hmm

MumblingRagDoll Thu 14-Jul-11 18:16:25

Oh don't be so uppity TIY I don't mean that! Of course not. But God some people are slow off the mark!
Sortinghat that's the thing....they're attracgted to these places especially because they can get their kicks from people with DC. sad

I don't generally think troll unless someone has unusual circumstances and keeps banging on about their 10 children, triplets on the way, woe is me misery tale. Misery trolls bore the fucking pants off me.

Its hard though

Sometimes I think troll ,but don't do anything about it just in case I'm wrong

I just ignore them ,or poke em if they are obvious

MumblingRagDoll Thu 14-Jul-11 18:17:24

Plus TIY I don't yell troll EVERY time someone asks about feet or tickling...or school uniforms or anything else...but there' a STYLE they have of writing. It's frigging obvious!

Just checking thisisyesterday cause I'm quite innocent, but that was sarcasm, wasn't it?

IroningBoardForSurfBoard Thu 14-Jul-11 18:17:28

YABU to start a thread calling the people who are innocently taken in

if you think you've spotted a troll thread/post or whatever, report it, don't make it anyone elses problem.

Pagwatch Thu 14-Jul-11 18:17:37

I am very slow off the mark. I am a bit dim about that stuff.

HairyFrotter Thu 14-Jul-11 18:18:14

That tickling one has been on Netmums too.

MumblingRagDoll Thu 14-Jul-11 18:19:10

Inthenightgarden you ask if it's a big deal? Yes it bloody is! People like that are filth.

AgentZigzag Thu 14-Jul-11 18:19:22

Posters shouldn't really give out more than they can 'emotionally afford' to.

Maybe the trolls should have their own exclusive spin off forum?

MumblingRagDoll Thu 14-Jul-11 18:20:32

Ironing Calling them what? Slow? Well they were.

thisisyesterday Thu 14-Jul-11 18:20:44

but mumbling... you could be wrong! you cannot possibly tell whether someone is getting kicks from what they're writing.

the OP of the tickling thread asked whether it was really that bad... no-one needed to reply with explicit scenarios of tickling children, so how can they have been getting off on it?

you may think that you're ever-so-clever and able to "spot" trolls... but the fact is you do NOT know and you could be wrong.

I would rather give someone the benefit of the doubt and it turns out I'm wrong, than go around disbelieving every other thread I come across.

I get a bit frustrated with the naievity (sp) of some posters too.

Like yesterday, there was a raft of people who didn't realise that there is a huge market for used underwear and shoes on e-bay, and that people modelling underwear and swimsuits on there are just a notch down from models in Reader's Wives or whatever its called nowadays on the sleaziness scale.

How can people not know?

MumblingRagDoll Thu 14-Jul-11 18:21:14

How do you mean AgenZ ?

usualsuspect Thu 14-Jul-11 18:21:37

A troll forum grin they could all troll each other

Tchootnika Thu 14-Jul-11 18:22:40

MumblingRagDoll - it's true, it's a revolting thing to do, but surely it's better just to report suspect threads rather than risk accusing some possibly very vulnerable (and innocent) person of being a troll?

MumblingRagDoll Thu 14-Jul-11 18:23:12

I dont know bibbity maybe you and I have seen more life? Could be they're younger? I suppose I shouldn't let it get to me but it does a bit....even when a poster has said they're suspicious then people KEEP posting things.

AgentZigzag Thu 14-Jul-11 18:23:16

Yes that's what I meant usual grin

I was trying to think of a spoof name for it but I've got cotton wool for a brain today (yes, thank you for reminding me that I have every day grin)

usualsuspect Thu 14-Jul-11 18:23:18

Trolls are part of internet life

I do think if you use forums ,you should be pretty clued up about trolls though

MumblingRagDoll Thu 14-Jul-11 18:24:24

Well yes Tchootnika But I just think that people plow on...keep posting even when someone has flagged a thread up....nobdy seeems to read the other posts...maybe thats it.
