surprised none of your Stewart Lee comments made the cut.
IRL I am a cheery and some might say gregarious lad that talks about girls in mono-syllabic blurts...
is that Sarah Bee's left The Register - hadn't even noticed.
I don't read it as much as I used to, but I did stumble across by chance when having a browse the other week.
While there a few "professional" trolls like CG or Foley who take pride in winding people up but are perfectly pleasant in real life, I imagine a lot of people who are consistly dickish and idiotic on here are probably like that in real life.
that on here, you like to wind people up!
You are also my favourite :)
I'm comparable to moousee?
Its not good enough
There must be a meet, me an moousee, we will line up against the wall and you must choose (like when people pick teams at school and confirm (publically and humiliatingly) what you already knew.....that you are a duffer at football "shall i just sit this game out then?", "nah you can go in goal, or be a cornerflag")
i only ever call people a cunt-eating bastard, IRL obvs.
it's easier to dehumanise trolls (probably because they've already done that themselves), than to face facts that vast swathes of people just need anonymity in order to become dicks
all the trolly types i've ever met have been perfectly fine people. hell, i've acted like a turd enough times on here but people seem to think i'm ok in person (mostly). i guess we're just weird things, people
/in order to express their innate dickiness that they've repressed irl in order to get handshandies in public toilets
Depends what purpose you use message boards for. I definitely think personality shifts are not uncommon...
For instance I'm absolutely lovely in real life. You'd be surprised.
yeh. in many ways, people's unguarded (or guarded-as-ungaurded/mask-as-way-to-tell-the-truth etc.) opinions/reactions are going to be more revealing than just how pleasant someone is when they're at an utr gig watching 'mama and her prolapse(s)' or w/e you DiSers do w/ your spare time. even hte Murdoch's can seem like reasonable if you take them to barden's boudoir
Actually, I don't even know anymore.
When I've been in a drunk group with friends, I've done stuff I'd never do when sober. Perhaps the same is true online. My view is probably slanted by the fact I know several Dissers IRL. I don't know. I don't know.
j/k. interesting read.
keep trollin' trollin' trollin'
but then again, trolls don't use caveats, unless it's a Borat-esque NAAHHT to undo saying something lovely.
some of the comments on the Telegraph's Norway live blogs over the last couple of days have been appalling. No shortage of far-right freaks on there.
the worst comments are from the articulate posters
WE ARE NOT HERE TO BE YOUR STRESS BALL!
But if it stops you from kicking kicks and putting kidnapping babies, then I guess you can continue...
*still can't hear In Da Klub*
Kick kicks(?) all you want, just don't troll me, bro.
Glad it's finally been confirmed.
It's blatantly TROLE.
if I ever had the misfortune to meet him I'd take piss-soaked pillow and ram it down his throat!
theyre probably pleasant irl but on the net they show their insecurities by wanting to be noticed/the centre of attention. Purposefully posting inflammatory remarks to get a rise out of people just seems a bit needy. I also imagine them being unhappy or full of self loathing.
