OMG, SHE POSTED THAT?!?  :iconohnoesplz:

Just kidding!  She's just messing around with us guys.  That pic doesn't bother me anyhow, I've seen much worse.  Not as crazy as lying about Tom Cruise being a closet brony though!  www.equestriadaily.com/2012/02… > www.equestriadaily.com/2012/02… Christian Bale likes the Power Puff Girls!  :giggle:

But seriously guys, stop calling her a troll.  Do you even know what a troll is?!  -____-

She also said something about a pic of her topless while holding a girl-it was a picture of 10 year old Ben Tennyson holding Gwen in that one episode...

Actually if you think about it, it's the prequel to cyberbullying. If not handled properly, it can get serious enough to be cyberbullying.

trolling's worse, think about the valentines day prank, or delete sys32, or True capitalist radio trolling

^Those things had way more psychological impact on people than cybering.

If it has more of an impact, then it wouldn't be trolling, it would be harassment or endangerment or whatever the necessary term is...

Meh, as far as I looked around the definition of trolling, harassment/endagerment/whatever is considered part of trolling, in case if you don't know.

AS IF! you don't know how many people were driven to suicide due to trolling (victim) overdose.

Well I would probably call that more of an extreme harassment or bullying incident... Although some people seem to think that trolling is ok cuz it's like pranking or just joking around, but really trolling is more serious than that. I guess in some cases a person who is 'trolling' could cause another to commit suicide even if they didn't intend it. Either way, someone who causes that to happen is in big trouble and can be severely punished.

Right? I wouldn't just up and assume she's "trolling" because I mean that one guy from the travel channel is a brony.. Who knows.. If he is, then awesome! If he isn't, oh well! Haha that's how I see it at least.

"In the late 1980s, Internet users adopted the word “troll” to denote someone who intentionally disrupts online communities. Early trolling was relatively innocuous, taking place inside of small, single-topic Usenet groups. The trolls employed what the M.I.T. professor Judith Donath calls a “pseudo-na´ve” tactic, asking stupid questions and seeing who would rise to the bait. The game was to find out who would see through this stereotypical newbie behavior, and who would fall for it. As one guide to trolldom puts it, “If you don’t fall for the joke, you get to be in on it.” (New York Times qtd. by Know Your Meme)

No links please, I didn't ask for one. And I'm sorry, but I'm not going to believe that if it's coming from KYM, they are a very untrustworthy site to be doing research on.

Oh, sorry. It wasn't a quote of KYM, though, but rather a quote of NYT article quoted by KYM.

"In the late 1980s, Internet users adopted the word “troll” to denote someone who intentionally disrupts online communities. Early trolling was relatively innocuous, taking place inside of small, single-topic Usenet groups. The trolls employed what the M.I.T. professor Judith Donath calls a “pseudo-na´ve” tactic, asking stupid questions and seeing who would rise to the bait." (Mattathias Shwartz, The Trolls Among Us, New York Times 2008)

As for what you were actually talking about, in contemporary American culture, the word troll in a more traditional sense has become synonymous with that of Scandinavian folklore, rather than its use in fishing (Troll, Online Etymology Dictionary). In modern American society, it has connotations of the trickster and the wicked, from which it becomes relatively easy to extropolate why it may have been used originally to apply for internet trolls. As for why a mythological creature that is seen similarly wasn't used, I can't say.

Dragons don't really seem to apply, fairies are seen as good now (rather than the mischievous little tricksters they once were), demons are too religious, imps... I'm not sure.
