    Default Trolling political boards

    I often see members from both sides of the aisle calling their political opponents trolls. What's the point of this? Of course our opponents are trolls! Every lefty post that I read here looks like it was posted by a troll, and I would bet that every righty post looks like trolling to the lefties. The weakest retaliation posts that I read here are the ones that accuse somebody of being a troll.

    Sounds like you don't understand what a troll is.

    And that you are an irrational person, if you think left-wing posts all look like trolls.

    Sigh, I don’t know why I bother with you, everything seems to go over your head.

    Have a nice day

    He also posted it in it in the wrong forum, so I’m moving the thread!

    The difference is that you’re not attempting to engage in legitimate conversation but to provoke an emotional response. It boils down to intent.

    You'd lose that bet. At least half the RWers here are rational coherent posters. The other half are racist trolls.

    Well we call him “Legion Troll” for a reason.

    No, but I’ll watch for sure. Wacko will probably be there. It’s a great consultation prize for OSU and USC and a classic match up.
