7. cretu . With all due respect, I am definitely NOT a troll. A sarcastic dork (thanks JJ) perhaps but not a troll.

Wikipedia gives a nice definition of a troll.

‘In internet slag a troll is a person who starts quarrels or upsets people on the Internet to distract and sow discord by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community with the intent of provoking readers’

I do not start quarrels per se I simply respond to responses that I feel are disingenuous, misleading, deliberately hateful and / or ignorant, racist, factually incorrect, or are blatant alt-right agitprop.

(Ok, in fairness, not completely true. Sometimes I will break form and post a comment that co-opts the language, ideology and worldview of people I utterly disagree with simply for selfish amusement. See the anger thrown at me for my Central Coast Spotlight: Farm workers post. And rightfully so, it was hideously ignorant and racist and ethno-nationalist by design and wording but I suspect a number of prominent American alt-righters on Snotr agreed with that gross invective. All I did was paraphrase Trump, Jeanine Pirro from Fox and congressman King from Iowa. I offered zero original thought to be honest and just carried the analogy to the German situation. )

Anyway, back to trolling, unfortunately the act of correcting some people, providing facts, or pointing out the obvious ideological or racist or provided slant of posts – can cause discord, hostility, and rancour. Agreed. However, I always try to treat people with respect and civility, which is not a characteristic of a troll; in fact, it is the opposite.

If anything, I do not suffer fools gladly. And I cannot help it if nomaddaf et al constantly offer themselves of as ripe targets. >:)
