Is a person who pretends to be new, jumps into the thick of things knowing what buttons to push, a troll?

I would hope the answer to that is self evident 😏

@muttmom

Those trolls do not see themselves as trolls.  Just like bullies, it's always the other person.

Thanks so much for this @newziesuzie. While reading this what readily came to my mind are all of the truly hateful and nasty comments posted online in response to the truly horrific death of the little two year old boy who was snatched by an alligator at the Disney property in Orlando.  The amount of judgement, finger wagging, and general lack of compassion towards the parents who are going through a living nightmare is mind boggling to me.

 

The word that jumped out for me in what you posted is cowardly.  How many of these "perfect" people would publicly confront the parents and spew the garbage they feel justified in saying anonymously?  Not many if any I think.

 

Again, thanks for this.


Amen!

That kind of event draws them out like moths to a flame.  We've already seen it in action recently.

Another thing to remember is that the word troll is often used like the word bully, i.e. inappropriately. Not every post, or every poster, that another poster doesn't like means they are either one.

Good point @Moonchilde.👍

We should  use words wisely or

they lose their meaning.
