Prevailing Wind: Prevailing Wind: yes it does.no it doesn't
Cythraul: This thread will lead to many additions to my Fark 'Trolls and Assholes' list, I'm sure.
Eddie Ate Dynamite: So far atheism and Benghazi have managed to troll this thread. The atheism one isn't that surprising, but I didn't see Benghazi coming.
halfof33: Uchiha_Cycliste: Well, if you aren't a troll then you are simply a retard. Frankly they are giving you the benefit of the doubt.I think it is important that people realize that he is calling me a "retard" because I pointed out that there was no protest outside the embassy in Benghazi before the attack there on 9/11/12.That is his entire response.I just want to make sure that no one missed this post.Because for his next trick, he is going to count all the way up to potato.
Uchiha_Cycliste: Psycoholic_Slag: I recall the days of Whoopty Woo The Precious Bongo BoyThat was trolling at it's highest level evar. No one has come close.Also Sunny Ray and the Gospel of Thomas.

cherryl taggart: ciberido: sodomizer: The people often accused of being trolls are healthy for conversation, sometimes. Others are just confused, stoned, dehydrated from masturbating, etc.Confused, stoned, and dehydrated from masturbating is no way to go through life, son.Are you sure? Sounds ok to me.

halfof33: Between the Give Joe the Bird thread and the Benghazi threads, Noah could have floated an Ark on the tears of morans calling me a troll.Me: There was no protest outside the embassy.Morans: YOU TROLLMe: the Administration admitted it todayMorans: YOU TROLLMe: Quote from AdministrationMorans: NO LINK YOU TROLLMe: LinkMorans: IGNORE LINK YOU TROLLMe: Link from some libolardo siteMorans: IT IS IRRELEVANT!!!!

MrPenny: In our "culture", Oscar Wilde would be considered a troll.
Chabash: Wait, so if Legend of Zelda was a chick, do you think they would date Metroid?
Day_Old_Dutchie: So, where's the FARK original troll[img254.imageshack.us image 352x320]Come out, come out, wherever you are!
Rapmaster2000: There are also a few alts who gang up in threads here that y'all always miss. Whenever someone posts a dumb zinger and someone else posts "ohsnap.jpg", that's an alt.
Rapmaster2000: One of my favorite trolls who I haven't seen for a while (sounds like Erection) had this awesome technique where he would take your entire post and disagree factually with one single sentence of it. This would require the victim to post a three paragraph post complete with links to prove that one fact.Then, the troll would disagree with one fact in that post using only a few sentences. And on and on. It was awesome. Farkers fell for it every time. He's got to be someone else now.There are also a few alts who gang up in threads here that y'all always miss. Whenever someone posts a dumb zinger and someone else posts "ohsnap.jpg", that's an alt.

diaphoresis: Fark == Trolls
PirateKing: I was under the impression that trolling was simply the deliberate stating of a position contrary to or derogatory to that of your target, regardless of one's personal position, in order to create an emotional response rather than a rational one.Just calling someone an asshole does not a troll make.
