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
Trolls don't have friends. On the internet, because they interact with human
beings, they can convince themselves that they are important, the centre of
the universe - that, to them, is better than any friendship.
Don't forget, the troll thinks he is always right, and therefore better than
other folk. In real life, exactly the opposite applies. the troll has no
friends and virtually no interaction with other people.
If he's a teen (many are), then he lives in his bedroom, trolling, playing
computer games with 'friends'(who he doesn't know at all), and joining
roleplay sites, where - of course - he is a hero, or a powerful villain, who
is respected in an inverse ratio to the respect he feels for himself.
If he's an adult, then he has serious social issues. He may work, where
people think he's a weirdo, and avoid him, he may sponge off his parents or
be 'looking for work', which means he blames everyone for his problems.
Most people who are out of work are nothing like the stereotype; most want
to work, and gain their self respect through work and being part of the
world; but the troll IS the stereotype whining scrounger, to whom the world
owes a living.
Almost every troll is male; I don't know why this is.
The troll has few social skills, and most have never had a girlfriend, many
There's a clear pattern among trolls; they are much more likely to ignore
posts known to be from women. And when they do respond to women, they are
much more likely to be brief, abusive, condescending and patronising.
This is almost certainly more due to fear than misogyny - they just don't
know any women. Except Mom. But their attitude rather reduces their chances
of reproducing, which is probably a good thing.
This describes "trotsky" to a tee.....
