Primarily because they derive either an innate or an overt pleasure in getting rises out of people, primarily to further their own ends!

Re: trolls, trolls....

I suspect the greatest satisfaction comes from getting long time members banned because they get riled up at each other and misbehave. Some great members of this forum have gotten their permabans on troll threads.

Re: trolls, trolls....

What is it called when a member logs in exactly 31 posts nearly all but 2-3 consisting of "" or "good luck" "take care" "too bad" "will she talk to you"

The member who has logged 31 posts of joing in September but didn't start wracking up posts until this past weekend when a riveting thread went private.

The other member tallied all 31 posts...today! And they were all 2-3 word nonsense replies.

I reported both. But at last check, both are still "members"

So do we call them Fembers?

Fakembers?

How do we get rid of them and what with the trolls and fakers?

I have my suspicions concerning that whole scenario. Something not quite right...

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Re: trolls, trolls....

As a recent member, long time lurker, I have to agree that some posts are too textbook to be true. For some reason, I'm more apt to believe the more outlandish posts because truth can be stranger than fiction.

Re: trolls, trolls....

I've noticed that sometimes, when a new member makes a bunch of posts like Anon mentioned, or if they retype something another poster said earlier (not in a quote of a post, but just typed out), I'll go to their profile and look at the list of all their posts. Most of the time when this happens, there's some kind of an embedded link in the post. There's nothing you can see, but it shows up in that other view. They must be doing some kind of ad click or spam thing? I always report them, and usually they get banned.

I'm undecided on which pants to wear today -- smarty, fancy or sassy?
