    Why do trolls do it?
    I believe that most trolls are sad people, living their lonely lives vicariously through those they see as strong and successful.

    Disrupting a stable newsgroup gives the illusion of power, just as for a few, stalking a strong person allows them to think they are strong, too.

    For trolls, any response is 'recognition'; they are unable to distinguish between irritation and admiration; their ego grows directly in proportion to the response, regardless of the form or content of that response.

    Trolls, rather surprisingly, dispute this, claiming that it's a game or joke; this merely confirms the diagnosis; how sad do you have to be to find such mind-numbingly trivial timewasting to be funny?

    Remember that trolls are cowards; they'll usually post just enough to get an argument going, then sit back and count the responses (Yes, that's what they do!).

    Pfftt, all right Kelmo...you and Vortex may take ONE piece of chocolate from the box of Godiva I offered to Petra, but that is all you get. :p

    Also, some here may find it amusing to know that I got my one and only forum ban ever, on the Blizzrard hosted WoW forums for referring to my troll character (my main char), which I always post on there, as a cooperative troll in a reply to someone...they don't get RP there much. :D

    Here is a link to one of the articles I found in my research.

    As for the sock puppets... I found that in my troll research. Yes. Some of you qualify as sock puppets.

    I'm hoping this code might actually work someday! Four+ years is entirely too long to put up with an internet stalker. :thumbdown:

    I think he stole alot of material off some work done on the socially inept, then added the word trolls. The parts that I thought were just meant to be humorious, much like what Kat posted were prolly his own.

    But it works.

    I think anything less than four years and you should just feel inadequate.

    I mean, if you can't even keep a stalker over the long term, what chance would a normal healthy relationship have? =]

    Also, Wulf...I don't think Kat was taking applications for additional stalkers. ;)

    Pfft, I was totally stalking her before it was the cool thing to do.

    Unfortunately I'm lazy, so I'd pretty much just stalk myself until she came by.
