Is trolling evolution, or de-evolution?

I was writing a debate round and pointing out a clear case of my opponent doing a Straw Man, and I realized it was not to my benefit to point that out, since half my argument was in fact a straw man against the weaknesses I saw in their case.

Driving hay-bales through enemy arguments has become my most reliable tactic, and I'm not sure I can stop, or even if I should.

I have trolling moods... they tend to be a result of my thinking that someone deserves to be trolled, and they are surely to occur when I think someone deserves to be trolled and no one else has done so. I don't think I'm an especially good troll, though.

I'll try not to worry about it too much. So far mostly it's where I used to type a comment about how someone needs to improve their resolution, I'm sometimes just accepting it.

I have also felt the cold grip of potential trolldom coming for me. Sometimes, when I have given up on any potential rationality on the other side (I am usually in religious areas of this site) I let the sarcasm and non-caring for others wash over me, and my complete disregard for others takes over.
