this is a general question and just asking as I have been wondering.
I aways thought a person couldn't be a troll if people had met them in rl.

An internet troll may be a real person. I think you are confusing a troll and a sock puppet.

Here are the Wiki explanations:

A troll can certainly be met in real life. People lie in person as much as they do on the internet.

i have been hereTheOriginalFAB
so if you can meet a troll in rl, how come people always say oh (insert random name) can't be a troll as (insert random name) has met them?

Because they think that proves something. But it doesn't.

Hadn't people met Dizzymare or whatever her name was? And she was a huge troll.

interesting, I aways thought trolls were made up people iynwim and the others were just liars.

Psycho and Flame met CVQ and she was a huge troll.

Well, technically, a troll is someone who comes onto a forum and tells lies/stories/what have you to gain attention. They stir things up. And meeting people in real life can continue that.

bellavita Mon 25-Jul-11 21:32:25

It was confirmed that CVQ appeared under a few other different guises on here too.

bellavita Mon 25-Jul-11 21:33:21

Exactly what she CVQ did Tee.

I don't think I was here for that bella. I don't remember the name.

Her story was.... She had been raped on her way home from a night out, an oldish couple found her badly beaten. She then found out she was having a baby as a result of the rape. Parents disowned her.

Nickschick, I don't know how you are managing to go on after that. Would you like to lie down in a darkened room? Perhaps with a cool cloth on your head?

grin
