Trolling is an art form, and there are a lot of things to know about it. I will cover all of those things on this site. If you need help with anything else, ask me. Contact me at darien_wilde@sbcglobal.net

1.) The Newbie: This is the guy that is clueless to what a troll is, or that you're trolling. They'll believe the silly things you say, and are almost impossible to annoy; because they have no idea you're trying to annoy them. They can be identified by typing of explanation points as !!!11!11!!, and typing in all lowercase, frequent misspelling of simple words such as the (misspelled teh) and other newbie behavior. Just think things you did when you first started online. They are sometimes vets in disguise

 

Tips on how to deal with him: There difficulty varies depending on if they're legit newbs or not. If they are real newbs, then deal with them by tricking them into getting themselves banned from the site, or doing things that upset the regular users, such as inadvertently helping you troll. This sucks morale from the other users. Its gets tricky if they're a vet in disguise. You can tell they're vets in disguise if the other users aren't annoyed by there newbness, they aren't falling for your advice, or if the newbie things they do seemed forced. An example would be something you would never conceivably have done when you started using a computer, or a combination of all the newbie tendencies. A guy that misspells a ton, misses the shift key every other exclamation point, and never uses a period or capitalizes, or who types in ALL caps is not a newbie. They are a vet trying to throw you off. If you discover its a vet in disguise, completely ignore him, until he gives up.

 

Difficulty: Varies

The below user is not a newbie, but it would be good to point out that a user does not always have to be a newbie to have the qualities of one, and the definition of a newbie actually in this instance is more along the lines of naive. Just look. This user actually takes me seriously, and will go on to become the lifeblood of the topic. Up until now, the topic was going nowhere. Tigerfly here has allowed me to let this develop.

You make the challenge you come to us.

We live in Reading, PA. Let us know when you will be arriving and what time, I can attempt to arrange for reasonable accomodations and a place to train locally for a day.

The closest large airport is Philly, and there is a smaller one in Allentown, PA - but I am sure that will be more costly than what you are willing to pay. Additonally, I may be able to pull some strings and get you a reduced rate on a rental car from Enterprise - if infact you are over the age of 25 and have a Major CC to rent with.

You must be at least 18 years old.

You will each be required to sign a release form - agreeing to fight and releasing Djimbe, myself and the location of the fight from all liability. You are required to have your own corner people - with all the necessary Emergency supplies - I will not provide those for you.

We are already scheduled for the first two weekends in March (5th - 8th) and the second weekend (12th - 15th). Additonally we are booked on Friday the 19th and Friday the 26th.

My email address is tigerflyjb@yahoo.com Please contact me with your destination, arrival time and dates - I will then forward you the required release.

Thank you.

Wouldn't it be nice if whenever we messed up our life we could simply press 'Ctrl Alt Delete' and start all over?
 
Not only does she give me more trolling ammo here, but she will keep the topic alive another 20 post with this.
