There’s no a.k.a about it. I am not a troll, and I demand an apology for being called one. If you’d like you can write on all my threads, in caps, that I am a social satirist (level 8), and therefore people should not respond.
The New Oxford American Dictionary defines a troll (second definition), as, and I quote, “A person who makes a deliberately offensive or provocative online post.” Please explain how humor or satire falls under this category. Or, if you’d like, simply find any post that I’ve made that is trollish according to this definition.
You also never responded to one of my previous posts, so I’ll repeat the challenge: find 5 recent threads, none of which can have been started by you, that are NOT troll threads. I’ll wait.June 24, 2022 10:27 am at 10:27 am #2099983
Um actually hes proving MY point if you haven’t realized.June 24, 2022 10:28 am at 10:28 am #2100003
Common saychel you backed yourself into a wall and now you have no way out. Admit defeat and apologize now before bigger claims against you come out. Also thank you proving my point.June 24, 2022 10:48 am at 10:48 am #2100012commonsaychelParticipant

A TROLL IS A TROLL

But, what is.troll? Do you have the right to question my identity?!June 24, 2022 12:40 pm at 12:40 pm #2100032
Wow! I’m so proud of you. You’ve finally taken the first step toward admitting that not everyone is a troll. Congrats. Although to be brutally honest, any thread centered on a dvar Torah by definition cannot be a troll post, because if it’s a troll post, it’s obviously not a real dvar torah. Let’s see if you can come up with just one more.
As to your second, thought out, articulate, searingly logical point, I’m in complete agreement with you. To paraphrase my 8th grade rebbi, a troll is a troll is a troll is a troll. However, as I have quite reasonably pointed out to you on numerous occasions, I AM NOT A TROLL. As I have said above, troll posts are designed to be offensive and provocative, and my posts are neither. My goal is simply to inject a bit of humor into the conversation, hardly a punishable offense.
I hope that now that I have explained this to you, you will cease and desist your dogged persistence in insisting upon my trollness. Perhaps you’ll even apologize, though I won’t hold my breath. Though Perhaps you understood this all along, and have some sort of personal vendetta against humor and satire, perhaps as a result of some childhood trauma. The possibility that your campaign against my posts is nothing more than projection is not one I’d rule out very quickly.
And maybe, just maybe, the truth behind your words lies in the fact that in fact, the biggest troll here is none other than YOU. After all YOUR posts certainly fall under the commonly accepted definition of a troll post. They’re rude, offensive, unprovoked, and provocative. You insert them into nearly every conversation in the hope of accomplishing nothing other than to get everyone else upset. Did I discover your secret? I’m sorry for blowing the whistle on you like that. Don’t bother denying it, we all know the truth. We didn’t even have to think very hard to realize this.
It’s just common saychel.June 24, 2022 1:31 pm at 1:31 pm #2100078
” You insert them into nearly every conversation in the hope of accomplishing nothing other than to get everyone else upset.”
definitely not applicable. He speaks his mind, unfiltered, and couldn’t really care less what you think. And I would guess that you knew that and wrote it to be provocative, which would qualify your last post as a troll post. Be it your first or otherwise.
Another question, though your satire involves not actually understanding, nor addressing nor answering them…
Why is it more fun to be satirical here versus on discus with your peers? It implies some level of mockery, as in being satirical and hoping to catch some ignorant people off guard. You say that that is not your goal, and I obviously have no reason to doubt your sincerity or honesty, so why the draw?June 25, 2022 10:37 pm at 10:37 pm #2100220
Sure. When I said my roommate was a cat I was trying to catch people off guard and make a mockery of something or another. Whatever you say.
And he doesn’t speak his mind. He calls nearly everything out as trolling, which I would define as trolling. It was not intended to be offensive. It was intended to get him to stop calling me a troll. If he is offended I apologize. If I’m right then I have nothing to apologize for.June 25, 2022 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm #2100257
Is this a two way conversation or you just pontificating on various things certain phrases bring to mind?June 26, 2022 1:40 am at 1:40 am #2100262GadolhadorahParticipant

I dont understand all the people who post the first three words that come to their head after reading a post and dont wait to think it through.
After reading this I request everyone think for 5 seconds before doing anything.
Thank YouJune 26, 2022 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #2100443
As per the decision of my doctor I am taking a mental leave from YWNCR.
YWNCR has been my life for a long time now, thru the dark times and the happy times YWNCR was there for me (and Everyone).I never thought I would come to this point. I dont know how I will continue. I would like to thank those who have stood behind me in the hard times. As for those who have hated on me and tried attempted yet FAILED to break my morale and troll me all I have to say is shame on you. Maybe, just maybe, all of you will grow up and apologize.
Its been a wild ride.
Thank youJune 29, 2022 8:08 am at 8:08 am #2101307
