But whenever I see a troll, I feel a little bad for them, because I know I used to be pretty hard to rein in when I first came online. I posted insulting topics and created drama at message boards without thinking because I was young, didn't know any better, and thought it was fun to behave like a hoodlum because it's just the internet!!!!!!!1LOL You know, there but for the grace of god go I and all that.
(Luckily, I grew out of it in my mid-teens when I realized what a complete idiot I was being!)
Have you ever sided with/defended someone on a web forum who others perceived to be a troll just out to create drama?
Have you ever been accused of being a troll?
Have you ever been a troll?
Do you believe trolls can be reformed into productive, intelligent members of internet society?
