I encountered my first troll last night. Luckily, Jason Cushman (http://aopinionatedman.com/) was on hand to finally give me a decent explanation of trolls.
I was about to reply to this comment
when I thought of a quote from Harry Potter that sums up trolls so perfectly it deserves its own post. Here’s the original:
Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love.
And here’s my troll tweaks:
Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who troll.
Trolls are today’s bullies. The sit on a computer all day – probably in their mother’s basement – and surf the internet trying to pick fights with people. One could say that they are more insecure than the typical bully because they hide behind a computer screen. Honestly, it’s just sad. There’s more to life than that. At least I think so.
