Anyone ever had a pet Troll?
I got one recently, does anyone know how to make them happy?
When he was a puppy, Pepa pig videos kept him happy.
Now he is older. only Jeremy Corbyn videos work.
And they are pretty boring after a while.
Are all Trolls socialist?
Why are they always unhappy?
Any tips on making them more friendly?

Thought trolls liked goats that's why they waited under the bridge for the Billy goat gruffs..lol

That would explain, why I keep finding him under the railway bridge.
Its the only bridge around here, no goats though.
There is KFC around the corner, would that be ok?

What? No curried goat takeaway?

No, but they develop fast, he is less than 1 year old, already opened his own furniture shop in Sheffield.
Its next to a Chinese takeaway.

He can easily pass for an adult, he is also training to be a bus driver.
He looks like one of those hairy biker blokes.

A beginners guide would help, but nothing on ebay about trolls.

I've just unblocked all double blocked trolls, (and a couple of other members), deciding to just let Midsummer play out as it rolls ... or as it trolls.

I'm convinced that most trolls are 4ft 2" or less, with small dicks and no comprehension of even the most rudimentary of social skills.

For such physically and socially compromised individuals, communicating online gives them some sense of social inclusion but their experience in relating to normal folk is so limited that they tend to act aggressively, defensively on the back foot, for fear of others recognising their social impotence.

Our current troll ... our current infection ... displays classic troll behavior but, as SQL states, "It is easy to just ignore every statement that he submits"

And that's the approach I intend to take from now on. :-)

Trolls - meaning (newest translation)

Can suffer from photo dyslexia - unable to distinguish that a photo they perceive to be of them, is actually of somebody entirely different.
Can suffer from amnesia - hence multiple profiles at times, as have forgotten they already have one.
Can suffer from divided personality - the same personality divided between four or more.
Can suffer from extreme forgetfulness - unable to remember their age for example.
Can be extremely argumentative - always looking to bait people to continue an augment.
Will always take the opposite view to others.
Prone to nastiness and causing upsets.
Could be ex convict - would account for sudden onslaught, if just released.
Cure - unfortunately none.
Symptoms can be alleviated though, by simply ignoring.
If you continue to light the fire, there will always be sudden eruptions.
........................

Trolls - meaning (oldest translation)

One who sits quietly under a bridge, waiting for the goat that never comes.

The oldest are always the best. : -)

A reference to the source of your info would be useful.

It's always a choice whether to engage with negativity.

Once you accept that not everyone who goes to the park is there to feed the ducks, they become easy enough to avoid.

You post this piece of nastiness
I'm convinced that most trolls are 4ft 2" or less,

And then have the audacity to claim others have
no comprehension of even the most rudimentary of social skills.

If you'd tried to make this claim at a public meeting, you'd have got no further than the 1st phrase before being required, by the elected president of the meeting, to re-take your seat and remain silent.

A fine piece of ...... something or other ...... Ah. Common Sense.

1.0 It's always a choice whether to engage with negativity.
1.1 Where negativity is defined as not being in agreement with the case promoted.
However
1.2 If the proposition is itself negative, algebraic logic shows that the negative of that is, in fact, positive and can/should be engaged with.

2.0 Once you accept that not everyone who goes to the park is there to feed the ducks, they become easy enough to avoid.
2.1 A contemporary version of Ordeal by water much beloved by God Botherers and other Lynch Law Roaders.

It was associated with the witch hunts of the 16th and 17th centuries:
(Clue = Think Baptism)
An accused who sank was considered innocent but was unfortunately dead by drowning

While floating indicated witchcraft - so the guilty was burned to death at the stake.
If a woman, almost certainly without garotting.

Next, please.

Have you considered taking these items in particular to your local Altzheimer/Dementia Support Group and seeking a discussion with one of their professional staff?

Hi minnie,

I thought of you the other day.

I'd taken the new Cube ebike down onto Eype beach and decided to attempt a climb up to the Beacon by way of the cliffwalk which, in places, is now perilously near to the cliff edge.

I did it though.

After the recent hot spell, these current heavy rain storms and showers are the perfect recipe for bringing hundreds of tons of cliff crashing to the beach below so, for now, I'm putting all cliff related adventures on hold. (Tourists continue to put themselves in danger every day though).

Hi Breach,
I can well understand you avoiding cliffs etc. at the moment. A couple of years ago I was swimming at Chapman's Pool near Swanage, (you may know it?) and saw a huge chunk of cliff, when looking to my left, come crashing down. A lovely fine sunny day at the time s well. Thankfully I had not left anything under the that particuar cliff and nobody underneath at the time. There were a few people further along though, sat very close, so yes putting themselves in danger.

Apparently Trolls like to provoke people into arguments.

They like the title Master baiters

Chapman's Pool is lovely but didn't some adventure club lose a punter, (who drowned), when several of the clients got into difficulty a few months back?

Yes. These are the perfect conditions for a big cliff fall.

There has been quite a few collapses recently between East Beach, where TV's Broadchurch cliff and beach scenes are filmed, and Burton Freshwater's beach about a mile durther along the coast.

Billy Bragg's substantial but naff clifftop home is situated adjacent to those cliffs and it would only take a bit more global warming and a few winter storms to wash him and his left wing ego out to sea. :-)

Yes, but winikers are not provocative.
They are more solitary animals.
They enjoy privacy and baby oil.

Yes, be careful Mr Beach. That stretch of coastline has always been a bit unstable, as I remember. West cliff was collapsing when I used to go there. I was thinking I might make a visit down there when the schoolies have gone back and having a wee look around to see if I recognise it all.
