    Ok, I'm having a bit of an idiot moment here. Some threads get started and then some people start calling out against Trolls. Am I right in understanding that somehow a poster can somehow start a thread even though he isn't a registered user on GT?

    There is no such thing as a troll. A troll is like stress, which is also an illusion. There is no such thing as stress, it's only your reaction to a situation.

    Besides, if you do spot a 'troll,' it either means your web site is successful, or you are getting under somebody's skin.

    I hate that word. I hate threads here that turn into idiotic pissing matches.
    Look up there at the top left of your monitor. See that little arrow that points left? Just click on it. No more problem.

    While I agree with the general sentiment of your post, the unfortunate fact is that "trolls" do exist. There are people out there that genuinely have nothing better to do than to make accounts to all manner of forums, for the express purpose of then riling people up on those forums, all to get their laughs at the expense of those who take their posts seriously. They're quite real, and can be annoying if they spam a place up.

    That said, they don't happen nearly as often as the word gets thrown around, and they don't last very long when they do show up, especially on a well-moderated site like GT.

    Let me apologize now for my next sarcastic outburst. GT makes me whole. I don't remember ever before having a single day where I laughed, and cried like yesterday. I thank GT for the laughs.
