Internet Troll

“THINK before you tweet, meme, post, tag, and troll. It could ruin someone’s life. Your own included.” Shaune B. Ryder

Who is an internet troll?

“A person who starts arguments and upsets people by posting in an online platform with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response”  Pinterest

Most of us might have experienced trolls on social media.

I am not into a detailed discussion about types of trolls and the types of mental agony they cause to sensitive people.

Many feel helpless

“There was one that was very clearly creepier than the rest of the normal creepiness. It is amazing how disconcerting a single vile, manipulative person can be even if you have never and (hopefully) will never see them. The power that each of us has over complete strangers to make them feel terrible and frightened and weak is amazing. This was not the first time someone had made me feel this way, but it was the first time it had happened through the internet, and it was enough to make me want to withdraw from the whole thing for a moment.”
Hank Green

Internet troll can become sometimes nasty and the person affected may lose sleep forever.

Why people troll?

“People are always ready to hate. They have a lot of things in their lives that are going wrong and they are looking for someone to blame for their failure.”  De philosopher DJ Kyos

Trolling is done by cowardly people, and they do because, they oppose somebody’s point of view or they derive pleasure by causing mental agony ( sadist ), or they hurt the feelings out of ignorance of the topic being discussed.

They troll because they think that nobody knows their identity.

Fortunately or unfortunately Cyber Experts can tell who you are!

It is said women are trolled more often than men.

Do you ever try to reason with your troll?

The more you try to explain or reason your thoughts, the greater the virulence of the troll and at one stage you start feeling as if you are feeding the troll to grow, at the same time you start pitying yourself.

I understand that in some cases people started taking psychiatric help.

Do you agree that everybody on the internet is a troll?

I don’t think so.

But this unique personality has a different view.

“On the internet, you’re a troll until proven innocent.”
 Narcissismus Decimus Maximus

What you do when you are harassed?

Two choices.

1.Ignore and move on or

2.Type ‘So tell me, is your ass….aware that your head moved in’. And now it’s your time to move on…

Take home message

“Don’t feed the trolls; nothing fuels them so much”  Oscar Wilde

Thank you.

      None.
      I was just wondering why people are trolled in social media in general.
      May be you can add your thoughts on this.
      Here in WordPress we are all fortunate that no such things happen.
      I am talking based on my experience.
      Thank you Silk cords

        I was joking, LOL.

        People troll because they have low self-esteem and t being a cyber bully is how they bolster their ego and feel good about their miserable lives.

          Oh Silk Cords…
          You are such a little sweet gal.
          I know that you are teasing and I enjoy being teased.
          You know ..why…
          We all lead a serious life with frowned faces.
          Teasing brings smile on our faces.
          We become calm
          And I thank you for this.
          And I agree what you said about the mentality of cyberbullied.
