The Khamma of Trolling

Post by Alobha » Sat Aug 08, 2015 11:05 am

Heya everybody

There's quite an interesting story on Kotaku where 10 former internet trolls talk about their lifes, why they trolled and harassed people and why they quit. If you're interested in the Khamma of Trolling, this might be really interesting and helpful. It's a good lesson in wholesome and unwholesome behavior =)


Best wishes,
Alobha

Thanks Alobha. I'm going to send this to someone I know, who is an internet troll because he enjoys the feelings that he gets when he makes others angry in video games. Maybe this will give him another perspective.

With metta,

James

I used to play a lot of quake 2 online and was pretty good. Most players were civil and polite in chat but some were brats, even to the point of tantrums and death threats when they got fragged.
I had a key bound so that "neener neener neener" appeared on the screen when i hit it, and it would really send some of these guys over the edge :)
