Oryus

Con

I thank my esteemed opponent for this debate challenge and happily accept.

The word troll has not been defined, so I will reasonably assume my opponent is referring to the most common use of the word. The word "troll" is a verb which refers to various actions. It could mean the causing of something to move "round and round," it could mean to "sing loudly," and it also has various implications with fishing.
Either way, it is a verb. And as we all know, a person cannot be a verb. A person might be able to *do* a verb, but it cannot *be* a verb.

As you can see from my photo, I have clearly reached the age of 2. So even by the most stringent of definitions I am indeed a person and am therefore not capable of being a verb which means that I am also not capable of being "a" troll.

To sum up:
I am a person (even by the most stringent definitions)
The word "troll" is a verb.
A person cannot be a verb.
Conclusion: I am not a troll.

Thank you, dear readers.
