OK, well there is a term used on this forum that I'm not familiar with and maybe this concerns me. Maybe I'm one of them and I don't even know. I don't like to be ignorant. What is a TROLL?Aside from being a useless garden ornament.

We should do a thanksgiving theme but instead of saying what we are thankful for, we should share what our favorite thing to eat is. I will go first
Mine is green beans cooked with bacon of course!

Ok yeah your right so what is a TROLL?

---------- Post added at 07:28 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:21 PM ----------

Found it on google. Hope this is right.
An "Internet troll" or "Forum Troll" or "Message Board Troll" is a person who posts outrageous message to bait people to answer. Forum Troll delights in sowing discord on the forums. A troll is someone who inspires flaming rhetoric, someone who is purposely provoking and pulling people into flaming discussion. Flaming discussions usually end with name calling and a flame war.

But I was called a troll once and I can't see now that I know what it is how this pertained to the discussion we were having at the time. Ah well I've been called worst I guess so I'll have to let run off my back. Easy when you don't know the person .

From what i gather a troll is a person that posts stupid questions just to get other people worked up. That is where i have seen the term used most.

oh, good definition. It is easy to jump to conclusions when like you said "you don't know the person." Some of theese trolls have serious questions but ask in a way that is kinda stupid and then get made fun of, im guilty.

Im guilty of it too. But regardless of what forum, be it car related or whatever there will be a learning curve on how to ask questions. We all had to go through the "do your research" type responses(and much worse). And most of us survived, with minor heartache. If anyone is new to internet posting, they need to develop thicker skin anyway. CSS was my introduction to forums. And i asked stupid questions, got ridiculed mercelessly, and survived just fine. Doesnt mean its the right thing to do, and i try not to return the favor to people but it does happen.

My favorite teacher of all times used to say ''There is no stupid questions just stupid answers. When I was supervisor in charge of 20 guys I got some doozzies and sometimes almost chewed my inner cheak. But not everybody is born with total knowledge, well speaking for myself. Anyways I will never degrade somebody's question just to make myself feel superior. I like this forum and if it gets weeded out a bit it should grow again.

scagnetti76: I saw somebody call you a troll not so long ago and until tonight I thought it was a compliment.
