to wonder why bored twats want to troll a site like Mumsnet, of all things.

'Let's go and wind up some mums'

Aside from the deliberate and nasty trolling of the feminist board, what possesses people to come over here on the wind up?

Is it really that thrilling to get a load of potentially outraged responses from a load of strangers?

Bizarre, isn't it. Sad little tossers.

There certainly seems to have been an influx of trolls over the last few days. And a lot of either sock puppets or a group of trolls posted on each others' threads. Really quite sad. And they're all so bloody obvious!

So, what the collective noun for a group of trolls?

I am bored and ill could do with reading these threads!

Collectively - a Twat. A twat of Trolls. grin

They don't just do it here. They get their sad kicks from doing it all over the internet.

Not enough fibre in their diet, probably.

I think the clue is in your title. 'Bored' and 'twats'. smile

I often wonder why anyone bothers to troll at all on any site when the Internet is so vast and interesting. There are so many other things to do.

It's a Gruff of trolls isn't it.

HoneyDragon Sun 20-Jan-13 19:30:48

What I don't get is why they bother on here. Your average Mnetter can be much more obnoxious than even the most hardcore troll.

TheVermiciousKnid Sun 20-Jan-13 19:31:18

I'm not sure. Maybe it's a boredom of trolls?

manicbmc Sun 20-Jan-13 19:31:35

True. grin

There one trying to derail trinityrhinos knitting thread! I have officially seen it all on MN!

They are sad little losers that is why! Always amazes me that people waste their time making stories up. I mean, how sad they must be! Pathetic!

Is coz we're the cool gang innit.

I am fairly new here (joined a while ago but just been spectating!) and the trolls are just so obvious.

Complete wankers who need to do something more useful with their time.

but it is funny when everyone piles in

[fond school memories]

but agree, very strange

They are wankers but i wish i could be better at spotting them...

lol at 'twat of trolls'

I know - there is so much to do on the internet, why deliberately go on a site and make some shit up in order to get a reaction?

They are like the kids at school who lied and said that their dad was a millionaire who was friends with pop stars. Attention seeking friendless morons.

TheVermiciousKnid Sun 20-Jan-13 19:45:41

How about a twatwankgruffery of trolls? Or twatgruffwankery?

You get a better class of wound-up-ness here.
