    Perhaps posting rights should only be unlocked if you pass a test 🙂
    Those lurkers are just plain wusses though.

    I thought all those questions that fella phoned me with was a bit odd.

    Yes sorry I was just curious but WOW you really did that with them 😯

    Wonder where surfmat and he who must not be mentioned would score

    Ultimately, the allure of trolling may be too strong for sadists, who presumably have limited opportunities to express their sadistic interests in a socially-desirable manner.

    So its official they are EVIL and must be killed

    Surprised that 40% + just lurk

    Some of them are a little odd / bit of an acquired taste, but I haven’t met one yet that I’d describe as nasty

    Theres a difference between trolling and abuse which a lot of researchers and the public fail to get…..

    Saw this posted in another forum along with some research links. The link between trolling, iedeliberately creating discord in an otherwise functioning community and doing so for pleasure, carries a strong link sadism. A Sadist will find it much easier to gain pleasure from trolling anonymously than trying to do so in person.
