It could be age, it could be something else, but the quality of the trolls on this site is very low.

Some recent troll activity has made me wish for a higher level of troll. How the site can attract them, and discard these pedestrian players.

Anything would be better than ~"you mother" or "I heart Hitler" posts from the current crop.

Seconded. Trolls like RXR are lame and worthless.

A good troll can keep my interest, make me giggle a bit. He can get a good conversation rolling. These guys are just so week.

I'm inclined to agree. Normally I don't like trolls because they're just annoying, but clever trolls are bearable and sometimes really entertaining. Lately it has dropped to a very elementary level of trolling. I think it's because a majority of people who've joined in the last year are pretty young. With the median age getting younger, I suppose it only follows that the trolling would be of a more elementary caliber.

The last good trolling I saw here was the video Imabench and Airmax made together. Nothing since then has really impressed me trolling-wise.

We all know you hate both max and ima. "I hate trolls ..." - how contradictory of you. I'm thinking of ways to display the stark contrast between you and other trolls, in a beautiful and complex juxtaposition. A clever person annoyed by you may just prepare a conniving guetapens. Even the idea is certainly delicious and, above all, salubrious, at least if it were a meal.

I do think it is about age. The taunts are basically boyish sexual things.

The best trolls can troll you without you knowing it and string you along.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

He's the troll DDO deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

Clumsy alien Jar Jar Binks was introduced in The Phantom Menace for comic relief, but he was initially a two-faced mercenary who was to betray Qui-Gon Jinn, a Jedi Master played by Liam Neeson.

I have a philosophy. "Be the change you wish to see."

As it applies to this situation. Be the troll that you wish to see.
