But
but trolling is fun. D;
Being annoying is the entire point, hmm? Well, it is when I'm doing it, at least. Perhaps I'll just troll children again, instead.

I have yet to get around to really trolling there. Eventually.
Until then, I'll be trolling children.

Ugh I really don't understand what's amusing about finding people that you don't know anything about, have no idea what their life is like or what they're currently going through, and then intentionally pissing them off. When people talk about how much they love to troll I just wonder what society is coming to.

I don't see the harm in it, honestly. >_> The only times I've been trolled were by some bored teenager that just was acting like an idiot. If anything, it made my day better because it was quite funny. I'm not "mean" to people when I troll- it's just to get on their nerves or have some fun.

I find it funny to see people get frustrated to stuffs I say when I'm actually laughing at the fact that they take everything so seriously.

There is some truth in this. A lot of employers will be put off by a lack of a social media presence in a candidate, and for some it can be even more off-putting than a poor social-media presence. No matter if it's legal for them to do so or not.

It's something that I've found very annoying while searching for a job. I don't have a very strong social media presence at all.

You know... some employers demands that you add them on your friend's list and some might even go to the length of asking your PASSWORD.

I'm talking about Facebook, btw.

Personally, I don't mind having to have to add your co worker or boss on Facebook. At least, the idea of it anyway. I don't do anything stupid on Facebook, so no harm could be done.

The point of trolling is pissing people off. If that's not your goal then you're not trolling, you're doing something else entirely.

Although getting on someone's nerves gives them negative feelings. It's really selfish to say "it's fun for me, so I don't care about someone else's negative feelings that I'm actively causing." Can't you find fun without making other people feel angry or bad? :/

I really dislike trolls, no offence. I mean, find something else to do in your time. Seriously.

Yeah, sorry about being harsh Slender, I just have very, very strong opinions on people that enjoy harming other people for fun, lol. Mental and emotional harm is just as real as physical harm.

Edit-
Perhaps I should better explain. I'm not "harming" anyone- just getting on their nerves. If someone seems too ticked off, I stop. I don't "troll" the way other people do.

How do you identify the line between "getting on someone's nerves" and getting someone "ticked off"? To me, those are identical. Getting on someone's nerves = annoying them = ticking them off. Is getting on their nerves not a negative feeling in your definition?

    Getting on someone's nerves means you're annoying them. Ticking someone off means you've made them angry. At least, that's the distinction I've always made.

    I just love posting an opinion people hates and then seeing how they all get mad by it.

    I guess. I just don't make much of a distinction because annoyance is still a negative emotion. And if I knew someone was trying to annoy me for their own kicks, I would be really pissed off and hurt if they were my friend. That's why I just can't understand it. Where's the empathy for other people?

    Although I guess slightly sadistic people always existed, they just didn't have such a wide audience as they do now on the internet.

      @LilJz1234:
      Yeah! *highfive*

      As for the trolling thing...
      If you're getting angry about something that some random guy/girl/other/itsatrap said on the internet then you are taking yourself way to seriously.
      I enjoy trolls/trolling it's meant to be irritating, abnoxious, and ridiculous.

        Lol, I read this and for a second I was like "what in the world is she on about" then scrolled up and ohhhh. I'd not seen the whole trolling discussion before now. Yeah - neither annoying nor making people angry on purpose is alright, online or offline.

        Irritating them is just, well, irritating them. Which, to me, is a momentary thing that doesn't last after I've stopped. Ticking them off is more like something that would stick around and mess up their day.

        Hopefully that makes sense. I'm not good at wording things, obviously. >_>
