You get an extra life for completely ignoring the troll, no matter how personal the taunt. It's hard, and you need to learn to swallow the bitter pill of pride, but you win in the end.

This game can be practiced at home with the wife.

Sometimes I troll. I don't do it on here, but on another forum since 2004 I have over 60K posts. Most of them were me trying to get a reaction. If I'm bored it's fun. I would always let on (after the fact) that I was trolling, but some people are just angry in general. Typically the angry people are the ones that just like to be jerks without reason.

Also, I think many of them are young. Or they just have nothing better to do. I mean, when some guy criticizes you for asking a question on an opinion forum his life must be pretty boring
Don't fool yourself into thinking that it doesn't happen here either.

Every forum has it's share of assh*les who think they are authorities on every subject and that their way is the ONLY way to do something.

Like it was said...know them for who they are and move along with your life.

I am on a softball forum, same deal. lots of trash talk. I quit logging in as often late last year as listening to all the drama almost drove me to quit playing.

I'm on a forum for just about everything, it seems, and there's always a strong contingent representing the 'unneccesary meanness' corner. This site is has the absolute least rude/ tough/ mean people and as such is my most frequented. This, and the motorcycle forum. I've noticed- DIY type sites tend to have more helpful and fewer jerk members than the "I bought it" crowd. When I get the urge to call someone out for being inconsiderate I usually just let it go. I don't care to get into mindless arguments with someone in Kansas for the next five days. (nothing against Kansans) Kyle

I don't know about that. I wake up every morning, do a SEAL basic training course regime.

I then do it again so that I can be super strong and mentally prepared for the internet.

After that I stand in the mirror and insult myself till I cry. I know real tough guys don't cry, but I'm pretty good.

I then sit down, log in, and go picking fights with people I don't know.

All this takes a few hours daily. It's not easy, so I disagree with your assessment.
