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.

How to win war on internet trolls?

This article is a 2.5 minute read.

This post is in response to my experience with a reader,who is from non-English speaking country, who mistook my English,and became angry.I fully understand this situation in this particular scenario.I even had to take help of fellow readers(English Pundits)

But many times we are not that fortunate( I mean language problem) and are abused by trolls.

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

You can call Internet Troll as a polished version of mythical creatures in Scandinavian folklore.

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.

If you think trolls are after you…..what to do ?

Very simple.

Just Image You are hugging them…that’s all…. and move on by ignoring them.Don’t even respond,however strong the urge to react!

There are two kinds of Hugs.( my version)

1. Distant Hug-reach out to the person,when the occasion arises and hug in your imagination and you get peace of mind.

2.Physical hug-this you can call it as healing hug.

Time to Hug

Hugs are one of the reasons God gave us arms.So stretch out your arm to some one today.Reach out to those you love or do not love…it will warm the heart of the giver and give light to the soul of the recipients.

Healing Hug

Hugging is a good medicine.Scientists say that hugging is a form of communication because it can say things you don’t have words for.

And the nicest thing about a hug is that you usually can’t give one without getting one

‘Unknown’

We are fortunate in WP since we are surrounded mostly by Gentlemen & Gentlewomen,who either agree or disagree…and there the matter ends !

How do you manage your trolls ?
