...or is the number of trolls and members who are more irritating than not increasing as of late?

I've ran into three new members in the past day and a half who just spew irritating junk, more than normal.

Or perhaps I'm just paranoid?

There's no need to close your account over it. I get sad whenever someone closes their account.

I closed my account for personal reasons. I had a rough week that warranted no distractions. Besides, I'm back.

Can't tell if trolling right now, or clueless.

There are trolls that flame war, make people mad, and ragequit n' stuff, then there are trolls that like participating in funny/mischievous antics that always end up annoying at least a few people.

Also, the DDO definition of a good troll is really anyone who trolls debates or participates in troll debates.

Well there has been a proliferation of BAD trolls lately. And it saddens me.

I think it's just a cycle. It's nearing the end of summer, and people are anxious before school starts. By September, things will calm down.

I think it will. I recall this happening last summer too, and things calmed down by the fall.

I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid so stupid that it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. Your writing has to be a troll. Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know. I'm sorry. I can't go on. This is an epiphany of stupid for me. After this, you may not hear from me again for a while. I don't have enough strength left to deride your ignorant questions and half baked comments about unimportant trivia, or any of the rest of this drivel. Duh.

It's not just you. I've noticed the trend of new members focusing on trolling, spamming, and general immaturity. I suspect the site's new emphasis on opinions rather than debates has more than a little to do with it.

Or maybe we're just getting old, buddy. Maybe we're just getting old.

I think that you're probably right. My hope is that some of the new members can be brought in from the dark side, but I think that some of them are not going to be able to be reformed.
