    No most the time people get called trolls because they anonymously post nonsense etc. e.g. 'I threw a live chicken on a fire'. Then they sit back and watch as everyone scrambles to fight them or defend them. Trolls are also defined as bullying figures, but not much of that goes on on TSR as far as I've seen.

    How do you know they weren't serious? There are plenty of cruel people that would throw a chicken on a fire.

    I am not arguing that there arent trolls I am just saying the word get used too much and too mand people get accused of being trolls.

    Fair point, but then again his other threads included 'I haven't been outside in 10 years and I'm scared' and what happened at y big match last week' where he claimed to have been getting on a coach etc....e.g. going outside. Also the way the argument was proposed he made his friend appear to be in the wrong for calling him sick after he threw the chicken on the fire. He doesn't sound like a very reliable character to me.

    Yes, the 'haven't been outside for 10years 'really pissed me off because there are a lot of really nice people on here who tried to help him. Story was full of holes, especially the homeschool angle.

    Just because you state an opinion that someone doesn't like doesn't mean that you get called a troll as we all have different views and real trolls are the type that have no life and have nothing else better to do than to try and score points. Also Trolls tend to call other people horrible names and say horrible things

    You're right of course. But some are very clever and people get caught up, especially if it's someone who is having a really difficult time in life, then it all gets out of hand.
