    that study is a troll..

    5.6% of the polled say they were trolls. No, those are the people that are proud of it which does make them all the bad things in this study... id say that the other 44.4% of trolls out there dont understand that they are actually trolls.

    .....People who engage in internet trolling are characterized by personality traits that fall in the so-called Dark Tetrad:
    Machiavellianism (willingness to manipulate and deceive others),
    narcissism (egotism and self-obsession),
    psychopathy (the lack of remorse and empathy), and
    sadism (pleasure in the suffering of others).
    Now I am beginning to understand... This fits both the UK and the USA Govt's ...We are run by TROLLS !!

    Essentially they're people like my brother, with the mask of the internet they can easily reveal themselves.

    ^ Hehe, what does it say about us if we elect those folks to run us? And these people get ahead in the business world too (The military is supposed to be a good career for these people as well, ship out the trolls!)

    Back when I was the news section nazi, this is pretty much what I always suspected, and why I banned liberally and revoked bans almost never. It also explains why the worst offenders were so persistent in making multiple accounts.

    P.S. yes I'm still alive

    Oh, come on. Marc brings liveliness to this community!
    The kind I lost somewhere around 2010

    Wait, I get it, right?
    The joke is on Mr. Beier, since Buckeye repeated many times "No trolling", the real trolling is when Gautam shows up and talks about banning liberally, and bam!

    (I'm not a troll, I'm a garden gnome!)

    Interesting article.

    Is it still trolling if you don't have a bridge?

    Seriously though, this article hardly adds anything we all didn't know already. Although it does ignore causes like mental illness which could explain some trolls & the eAdrenaline Junkies.
