I have done one debate that earned me the Worse Than Hitler Award.

Am currently doing second debate that will win me the Better Than Dalai Lama Award.

Some want me reported/banned [they are the Concern Trolls]. Soon others will want me elected Savior [I'm arguing against 9/11 conspiracies because I'm the ultimate man for conspiracy-fact].

To the people who accuse me of unworthiness to be here: https://www.youtube.com...

The last website that banned me labeled me the ultimate Troll of the Trolls [and begged me to not get myself banned and to use my awesome genius for Master Yoda's good fight.]

Comments, suggestions, and complaints about how all those delicious grey areas of rhetoric apply to this website?

Are subversive tactics to argue for or against a topic fair game or not [such as arguing for Scientology in such a way as to really be arguing against it and to make it look even more discredited] or arguing for racism in such a way as to make it look even more like a con/ridiculous position. Things which I do.

Thank you.
Ragnar

Welcome to the site, glad to have you here.

A couple links you may want to read:
1. My write-up on trolls here: https://docs.google.com...
2. Our Troll King's write up on how to troll: http://www.ddofans.org...

Try to keep Poe's Law in mind, if people believe you are actually believing certain sarcastic things you say, they cease being funny. Yet what you say really reminds me of when I started a topic on if members of the religion forum were doing that (pretending to be of different faiths to mock the beliefs), it turned ugly fast, and moderators had to delete it.

Whenever I click a link on ddofans.org, it says the website doesn't exist.

That was oddly not an attempt at trolling. Imabench wrote an article about how to troll, and I've reused the same link for a long time to give people advice.

In it's absence, please enjoy a YouTube video pertaining to this topic.

I know it's not. It just annoys me that the link never works for me--not just you, many people have linked me to some page on ddofans.org.

I talked to Imabench, he did not have a backup of his trolling guide, as such the wisdom is lost.
