    Do we need trolls to amuse us?
    Are we so merciful and such good Samaritans we can't even think of letting the troll go hungry, therefore we feed it?
    Are we trolling the troll?
    Are trolls just too sexy?
    Are we that bored?

    Is the answer... out there? :eek:

    Not sure.. But there should be a time limit allowed ... Mods used to let members have some fun with trolls, because there can be some laughs to be had.. But would shut it down after a page or two... Now it just goes on a bit to long.. 50+ pages of someone asking the same question over and over

    For me I take what fun I can from the troll posting and then leave it be... unfortunately I am (a) easily amused and (b) someone contributes something clever and I can't resist riffing on it. :p

    And just think -- if you'd eliminated every troll then I wouldn't still be here. :eek:

    Now please don't break my delusions and point out that you wish I weren't here. :p

    Troll can be entertaining. But I am going to agree that there should be a time limit allowed.
    Seem no one is reviewing these posts.
    And looking at who is feeding the trolls and keeping these threads alive.

    Maybe those feeding the trolls are trolls too???
    I don't know. But as someone who lost interest on about page three I just don't get it.

    go ahead a bite my head off but I'll say it anyway
    it amazing why people think everything and everyone should have to do things the way they think it should be done.
    if you don't like the post avoid it,nobody is making you look at things you don't want to.
    who would judge that a person is a troll, if they are not breaking any rules I see no harm in it.

    But is he a troll? He has one thread and never disrupts anyone's threads. He's asking a question in the seclusion of that thread. He's easily avoidable. He, on the other hand, can't avoid us, because we don't leave him alone.

    Not that I think he wants to be left alone, mind you. Even trolls need company.

    A troll isn't always a troll. A person can be genuine about a belief or feeling they may have. Other people can sometimes misinterpret or misunderstand.

    But sometimes it is very clear when someone is trolling.

    As for feeding them if replying to a troll is entertaining for the people who reply , it's not feeding the troll it's just having banter and fun.
