Well yes it enrages many and gives us laughs but overall would you consider it to be a form of bullying? Of course the majority of trolling on things like 'Most Beautiful Teenager Competition' is bullying but there are also non bullying trolls on there as well.


See you next Wednesday

by definition I don't think so, but a lot of the time people use the guise of 'trolling' as an excuse to be a ****ing asshole so the line is usually pretty thin

Would you consider Bulling as a combination of the two?

Depends on the severity in my opinion. Most of the time, I troll only to have good ol' clean fun, When trolling get serious, that's when it can form into bullying. Again, that's just my opinion.

I don't even know how I want to define bullying. I think the term is used too broadly for my taste these days. It has turned into a boogey-man buzz word that doesn't mean a whole hell of a lot and ironically obscured some real and harmful acts pf bullying with its new-found ambiguity and semantic broadness.

I'll put down my troll guns for a second.

Cyber-bullying is malicious, whereas trolling is just good fun. Not only that, trolling is necessary in today's world IMO, because it teaches you not to take everything on forums and whatnot so fuckin' seriously, because you never know if the person you're raging at is just screwing around with you.

Oh my god, I had some fat girl so pissed on one of those when I kept asserting that pregnant women are in no way beautiful but are in fact bitchy individuals with potbellies.

This. It isn't inherently bullying, no more bullying that an innocent prank or sarcasm, but said pranks can be taken too far.

There's a line between trolling and bullying. Trolling is a one act thing, while bullying is a continuous act. Also, Bullying implies that the one being bullied is "under" the bully, but when you troll someone the hierarchy of power doesn't matter (you do it for the lulz).

That's only my opinion though. Feel free to squash it.

I'm probably closer to being a spammer than what certain sections of the media consider a 'troll'.

It'd be a little silly to consider forum trolling as bullying because the troll is invariably outnumbered by more intelligent people and is often made to look like an idiot. It's more a case of someone just making a fool of themselves than bullying.
#28
yes because you cant really tell if the person is trolling you or not. trolling is really dumb sometimes. yeah when its obvious sarcasm its funny, like when people say the beatles suck. but sarcasm is one thing, online bullying is another. just because youre "trolling" doesnt make it ok when you can really hurt someones feelings. yeah its up to you to not be a pussy and dont let online words get to you, but its also not cool to outright make fun of people, to an extent.

Wat. Wouldn't the people being trolled be the ones who are making a fool of themselves? Especially falling for the troll making a bullshit post in the first place, and end up raging over it.
