Build-a-Troll

#1
We've had a lot of talk around the site lately about Trolls and Walts and RT's description earlier about his efforts to Walt it as a Civvy.

Got me wondering... if you were aiming to build the Perfect Troll, one that would alienate / generally pissoff the maximum number of users on a website, what characteristics would you design in? Because all sites have different "standards" say, for example, you were aiming to build a common Object of Hatred for all users of Arrse?

I'll start the list with the following.......


Using PMs to try to break persec & gather personal info about other users

Refusing to answer similar questions about itself, thereby ruling out the possibility that it's simply over-friendly

Starting REALLY bone posts, then letting others rip em apart without defending, and just starting another

Usin grama speling and wich is like really crap except in PMs when it suddenly gets fairly literate



Any more pet hates out there?

Sh1t threads in the naafi. Typically ones which are not funny, cut and pastes and polls about how g@y a user is.

For example: How to create a perfect troll.
:wink:

What seems to do the trick is:

1. Ask a mod if they will hand out 'On Warning' labels to impose discipline, and get put on warning.

2. Say that it would look better as a tag-line, like Greenhat does on Mil.com, and get banned. Works for me...

3. Use one site to settle scores with another. Bit tricky, this one...
