    Why do people troll?

    What do you suspect the psychology behind trolling is? I find it pathetic that people have nothing better going on in their loser lives that they spend valuable time trying to get rises out of other people. I didn't even know sh1t like trolling went on until I joined this site. There have been a few recently, and it seems like they hangout online all day trying to piss people off. I'm venting more than anything. Thanks for listening

    Honestly it's something most of us will never understand because it's borderline psychotic I believe. A NORMAL person would not consider doing that just as we would not consider do many things psychotic people do. They do it for attention, makes them feel good or in control in some way but not like you and I would feel good about something.

    They are just different; to put it nicely.

    This is a subject that i've pondered for a couple of years and my theory is this:

    On the internet, people can be whoever they want to be, or in short, they can be the person they want to be on the net, that they cant be in real life. With trolls, it just shows that person is a asshole. In real life, he/she might appear nice, but its a lie. Real life is where people wear the masks, the internet is where a persons truer personality will come out and it's all because there are little to no reprisals. It makes me think, if there was no law, people would be God damned awful to each other.

    It is people just being no life d-bags. . . . I may post a BS post here and there when I pissed or whatnot.


    But, some of these weirdos stay on for like a full 2 days. I kinda think it's the same few people. . . .

    To get a reaction and nine times out of ten it works because it is difficult to ignore them when they get personal and they usually do just to get that reaction.
