Trolls are a pain.  But, what is the standard or definition?  It's too subjective to be controlled, I think.  Thank goodness we have more freedom of speech here.  England differs from us more than most people realize.  There's a quote that I can't remember all of it.  But it goes something like "I don't agree with you, but I'll fight for you to have the right to say it." or something like that.

I think they're entering murky territory.

(of course, we're probably spoiled here on WX, being 99 44/100% troll free!)

I was stopped by the local patrol when I was out in the neighborhood collecting those little red topped fellows from people's lawns, trying to keep my neighbors from having legal entanglements.

I guess those were gnomes, not trolls.  Thank goodness the officer was in a forgiving mood.

Yes, but when your right to say it crosses the line of my right to privacy when I want it, how do you balance that? Robo calls on my phone, spam in my email, the collection of my personal habits to support the right to get the message to me as an "interested party" are all defended as rights to free speech. Too bad our founding fathers didn't consider our right to Free Silence.  :twisted: {/personal_rant}  =;

AMEN!!!  =D> =D> =D>

I am glad I am not the only one that notices this. Reason I chose not to participate on other sites for THAT exact reason.

Naw, how about just "branding" a huge " T " on their forehead, with bottom of the "T" running down their nose (wink,wink)?!?!
