First of all, what is the point of trying to cause a fight online? Also, purposefully hurting someone's feelings is a bad thing to do. Trolling is also, by definition, a form of cyberbullying.

Very tempted to accept this challenge, however I have to prioritize schoolwork. If still open Thursday (doubtful), I'll accept.

My main case would be that trolling is in fact a form of cyberbullying, and as rude as that point may be, it indeed has a point.

I see no point in this debate because you are 100% correct. IT IS A FORM OF CYBERBULLYING! Some youtube videos show the trollee freaking out because of the troller. What if ~ That person was having a hard day at work or school and wanted to play a friendly game of CoD, Halo, etc. Then all of a sudden someone makes fun of him. He was remembering the times from his childhood when people use to pick on them. It gets to the point of him killing himself.

Yes, its just a game. People are there to have fun whether it be trolling or just hanging out. If someone dies because of this 'trolling' habit people are starting to have, then this WILL get down and dirty and people may get fines or prisoned for this.
