In thinking that our Trolls simply aren't trying hard enough these days?

I mean, come on, they used to put some effort into the scenarios.
Now they're just a bit......Meh.

What do they teach these days?!

I mean to say, weird stalker people and blokes who think their wives may be unfaithful as their younger friend has an inhumanly sized wang?

The subtlety is all gone.

There's a bloody lot of them around at the mo though.

I think there is one lurking - wanting her 5yo not to accept presents but donations to charity instead

DorrisMcWhirter Fri 01-Aug-08 17:26:56

Perhaps we could extend them the courtesy of giving them their own section in the summer holidays - trollsnet?

Claricebeansmum - PMSL at giving a goat or a toilet!!

Ah but credit where it's due - perfectinpink was utterly superb.

DorrisMcWhirter Fri 01-Aug-08 17:30:06

Ah yes, the pink wedding one - I did enjoy that!

claricebeansmum Fri 01-Aug-08 17:31:00

I missed the pink wedding one

This is just annoying.

All these new names cropping up with crappy first time OPs.

Think I will call it a day om mumsnet for some time.

Hey! How about DanielJohnston last Christmas huh?

DorrisMcWhirter Fri 01-Aug-08 17:32:50

Missed that one Rhubarb - will ahve to search now as I'm daftly nosey!
Oh don't go QS - just pick through the troll dung - there's still old mnet in there somewhere!

grin Shineyhappypeople was good at doing troll threads.

The pinkweddingone was good because it wasn't nasty any way.

Yes - the trolls have lost their subtley.

It is best when they don't reveal themselves totally in the OP - it only happens gradually as the discussion wears on by which time some other posters are too engrossed to step back...

i miss the trolls of old . . .

wheresthehamster Fri 01-Aug-08 17:35:35

That's why I enjoyed the shuffling mags in the loo one.

wheresthehamster Fri 01-Aug-08 17:36:44

I replied sensibly to the charity present one then noticed '50 friends'...

Rhubarbstalkingarsehole Fri 01-Aug-08 17:37:22

Ah then there was the classic one of the Mumsnetter who put blue cheese up her fanny because she'd run out of natural yoghurt <preen>

Yes, the harmless ones where people are incredulous, suspicious, yet can't quite hold back from posting! They are the best. These nasty trolls are just talentless.

Nagapie Fri 01-Aug-08 17:37:45

There was a bit of a funny cross post in the 5uo posting - x-posted with : Serves you right for spoiling her !!

DorrisMcWhirter Fri 01-Aug-08 17:38:17

Perhaps I could offer 'TrollSchool' where they could learn to create interesting and amusing posts?
