Is it hard for you to spot a troll?January 29, 2019 12:15 pm at 12:15 pm #1670561
Haaah… This one troll-who’s-on-a-roll, is opening a bunch of threads, and I’m sure you noticed.
Meanwhile he enjoys seeing posters arguing and getting all worked up for his quirky amusement.
Don’t be surprised if he’s otherwise a sane-sounding , mussar throwing ,and serious-sounding schmoozer as he displays on many threads. I’m sure he’s quite normal looking with no hints of abnormality to the casual onlooker, but boy is there something wrong. Quite frankly, I’m about to tune the CR out altogether.
He’s going to read this, so here’s a tip for him:
In your ‘hood, there’s a shrink who specializes in this ailment. He’s on the corner of Ave J & Coney Island Ave, corner apartment house, on the northeast corner.
Come alone.January 29, 2019 12:16 pm at 12:16 pm #1670557Yserbius123Participant
Nah. They are usually eight to ten feet tall, grey mottled skin, covered in warts, live under a bridge, and constantly say things like “Rachmono litzlon! A REAL frum Yid would never have a smart phone!!!!!!”January 29, 2019 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #1670681
Hey, why not, it gives us something to read other than anti/pro-vaccines or Chabad bashingJanuary 29, 2019 3:32 pm at 3:32 pm #1670693
Whenever I read a troll post, I imagine that there is a real person who did not write the post, but is in the same situation as the person who wrote it. Then I respond to that person.January 29, 2019 4:35 pm at 4:35 pm #1670710
1 it’s not just one (unless he/she has multiple screen names)
2 who says he/she live in Brooklyn let alone New York
True but it gets people upset for no reason
Who says that imaginary person likes to read the CR?January 29, 2019 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #1670726
Ha ha you fell for my trolling! (T)January 29, 2019 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm #1670740
Yeah, I’m sure there are more than one, and multiple names.
However, with certain threads I’m betting a crate of long shaitels on Brooklyn, that’s how confident I am.
I’ll even treat you to a free lunch at your favorite coffee cafe and explain why , though it’s rather simple.January 29, 2019 7:29 pm at 7:29 pm #1670749
In accordance with kaballah, a virtual “troll” is a mythical, cave-dwelling CR Poster frequently depicted in folklore as either a giant or a dwarf, typically having a very ugly appearance and capable of seemingly endless expressions of contrarian viewpoints on just about everything. There are some very good anti-troll apps available for downloading at the Itunes store.January 29, 2019 7:29 pm at 7:29 pm #16707422scentsParticipant
You were actually reading the vaccine thread?
I always thought that its just 2-3 of us that were reading it..January 29, 2019 7:29 pm at 7:29 pm #1670743
I’ll take your trolling any day
Ok because t you have to come to the 5 towns 😜January 29, 2019 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #1670778
Nah, you’re not a troll.. You just run threads asking difficult questions and make people work too hard. They’re like riddles, mostly unsolvable..😫😫🤣🤣January 29, 2019 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #1670776
Oh, 5 Towns?? No problem.
In that case I’ll order lunch someplace indoors for the two of us .. Don’t want to be recognized walking on Central Ave.😉😉😉😉January 29, 2019 9:22 pm at 9:22 pm #1670791
2 cents- Na, I stopped after a few pages, got tired of reading the same posts over and over. But since there were so many parallel threads, skipping anything vaccine related or chabad related meant there was not much for me to do in the CR. Trolls or not, it’s more fun here now. Even of the OP is a troll on some threads, the other posters are not…January 29, 2019 10:51 pm at 10:51 pm #16708112scentsParticipant
Ye, at times it seems like the discussions dry up, but sometimes even a short hiatus means you missed a lot.January 29, 2019 10:52 pm at 10:52 pm #1670812
I’ve never heard that defense for listening to לשון הרע/מוציא שם רע beforeJanuary 30, 2019 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #1671070
CA, what are you talking about? It’s not LH if the thread is about a made-up persona with a made-up problem. Those are the safe threads.January 30, 2019 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm #1671117
Most discussion boards have their resident trolls….they provide comic relief and occasionally keep things going during slow periods when most posters have better things to do with their lives.January 30, 2019 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #1671234
But they aren’t resident trolls, they’re visiting trolls
I’m ok with ry23, Joe, or any usual poster making a troll post but some new poster…
Not when the made up community turns into a real oneJanuary 30, 2019 9:04 pm at 9:04 pm #1671291
CA, that’s another issue entirely, but has little to do with it being a troll thread or not, but rather a problem across the board here. even more so with the serious threads.January 30, 2019 9:32 pm at 9:32 pm #1671301
So Winnie, why not start a “serious” thread about the growing number of trolling threads related to the shidduch crisis??January 30, 2019 11:38 pm at 11:38 pm #1671334
Trolls are easy to spot: ANy opinion I disagree with is obviously a troll. It’s not acceptable to call them meshuga or stupid, that is not nice! Instead, let’s givel them the name Troll!. Listen carefully to the mohel at the next bris: V’yira shemo b’Yisrel Troll,January 31, 2019 12:01 am at 12:01 am #1671360
Golden, even though you are a troll, here is a serious response: Many trolls here haven’t expressed any opinions whatsoever.January 31, 2019 11:00 am at 11:00 am #1671599
Na, Gadol, I usually leave starting threads to others.January 4, 2022 10:20 pm at 10:20 pm #2048168TS BaumParticipant
And even in 2022 trolls are still all over…
