You know, I sort of lump em into a group of unnecssarily loud and abusive a***oles, who just are mean for mean's sake. Exploiting the fact no one can actually beat the crap out of them.
Yeah, Amen to that. They make you wish you could travel thru the phone lines and let them have it on the other end. And, no big surprise that Youtube is a major ground for these types of offenders, especially in the Music Videos and Favorite Bands sections.
As always, no big secret that the political section has enough trolling going on on both
sides for Tom Clancy to write his next major book about (were he still among us.)
As has been my experience, you can usually separate the trollers from the true debaters and discussionists, while other times, someone who feels they 'lost' an argument or got bested by someone will just resort to all out abuse as a substitute for intelligence. Like the rest of you I've had my fair share of these types and it's not likely to stop any time soon, unfortunately.
