Oh crap just say the word and I'll troll the hell out of this forum. I actually do troll quite a lot in other forums for fun, but not in this one because you guys seem kind of pure and just looking to make some $$$

If you own a discussion board or a forum, sometimes you need a troll to make other members active in the discussion. Troll will go on picking debate with a lot of users which will make the site active.

Nothing is so bad if it will be done with decorum because I hate outright annoying character. If one is trolling in a positive way then there's no problems with that but whereby one is just been excessively annoying then fight is imminent.

Picking a debate is fine, but picking on people is very annoying. I love a good discussion, not an annoying troll who just want to make someone miserable.

@sofs I can really relate because there is one on Mylot it seem to be a troll but he or she does it in a very annoying way that one might be tempted to give him or her a punch on the nose. Troll but do a good job of it simple.

I also enjoy trolling sites quite a bit. It just makes me laugh how angry people get.
I heard there are some gigs where you can even get paid to troll online.

Beauty Pageant forums, Pay people to Troll Venezuelans,Colombians and Filipinos because those countries take Beauty pageants like religion just like how Americans worship American Football. :lol: They will defend their candidates to death.

Soccer forums are also like that, they will defend their teams to death.

LOL That was so funny. I really like the way you put it. Yes, sometimes it does make you feel that way. But I guess the forum owners have a thing going with these creeps. I would hate to be a forum owner if I had to have one of those trolls to help me.

That is sadly the best way to keep a forum active. If you banned all trolls the place will become a ghost town.

I do not agree that trolls are needed to keep a forum active. Interesting topics and intelligent committed posters are what determines the success of a forum. There was a very annoying poster on here a little while back called Little Marge. That poster got on my last nerves with her outrageous silly posts. I reported her posts and marked her negative alongside with a bunch of others until she was banned. Not nice at all.. :thumbdown: :!:

It's really sad that forums have to depend on bullies. Their rules often state that you should be polite and such on the forums. It's kind of double sided if they have to employ someone to keep it going. They probably don't have enough material or posts to keep their forums earning.

Paid forums they are not needed because money keeps members posting but that is not the case on non paying forums.

When people fight, it gives them back and forth discussions which advertisers desire as they see this as a sign that the forum is alive. Mylot a paying forum even encourages debates for the same reason.
