Trolling should be made illegal because it is mean and hurtful to good people who are trying to be good. It has taken many people's live because it has hurt their feelings about themselves so they feel like they don't have a need to live. It makes people hard work and it makes their thoughts and ideas look like garbage and nobody wants to be on the receiving end of that. Trollers should be banned because all they do is try and make themselves feel better by putting others down.

Why trolling should NOT be illegal
Since you did not link the definition of a "troll" is, I will post it here: http://en.wikipedia.org...

Trolling should not be illegal, why? There are many reasons, for this, it is not a real crime and just people having fun.
NOT all trolling is harassment.

My opponent said " It has taken many people's live because it has hurt their feelings about themselves so they feel like they don't have a need to live."
I find that to be a rather big assumption, as not everyone thinks that and to assume EVERYONE thinks that is outrageous.

He also said "It makes people hard work and it makes their thoughts and ideas look like garbage and nobody wants to be on the receiving end of that."

Oh, heres an idea

GROW SOME TOUGHER SKIN.

Also, many sites that allow talking/communicating have a MUTE button, that you can easily apply to the "troll"

What you seem to have said in your first argument is harassment and not trolling, as they are completly different.

Trolling should not be illegal because it is just a way for people all around the world to mess with their friends and have fun on the internet. If trolling becomes illegal, then pulling pranks should be too. Trolling is pulling pranks, just on the internet
