    QOTD: "Need more science?"
    There was no scientific basis for this - not even a definition of what constitutes a troll.
    Maybe we "Safe Space" thread where we can go when we feel triggered?

    Facebook was great for trolling.
    I use to find groups who annoy me like militant vegans and extreme oppressive religious groups and troll the siht out of them for a reaction, seeing how many would bite and how angry they got. I enjoyed the feeling of knowing I was sitting at home laughing hard and some militant vegan who was calling omnivorous people monsters was sitting at home getting angry as hell.
    I found that custom tailored memes worked the best.

    I eventually got sick it. I don't even have a fb account anymore. The leftys can keep it for themselves.

    Agreed

    Being trolled is a bit like being offended, it's subjective. Your only getting trolled if your bothered by the comments.

    Also, people who troll can't always be pigeonholed into a specific psych group, it's just not that simple.
    Personally I was seeking out people or groups of people who felt their opinions were more important than anyone else's and challenged their beliefs because they were bullying people who didn't live by their values.
    I was that kid at school who bashed the bullies.
