    I read a lot of inferences to trolls on here. Sometimes i think they may be directed at me because of my age... not sure. I have never met anyone from rj and who knows i may never, but i do enjoy the forums and connections. I realize i don't look, dress or act my age..... I'm an active person and i realize the body has a lot of regenerative properties under the right conditions. I tend to socialize with people of the same activity level. Unfortunately not those that sit on their butt all day, I guess that's why most of my blading and cycling buddies are in their 20's and 30's.

    Anyway, does age alone determine whether you're a troll. Don't be too harsh...lol

    Generally "troll" here is an internet troll.

    If the kiddies are insulting us by calling us old - perhaps cause they're trolling, lol - they'll usually call us dinos or old creepers.

    EDIT: And just to confirm my dino status, I can't get that link to work....icon_cry.gif

    Trolls walk upright but hunched forward with sagging shoulders. Their gait is uneven, and when they run, their arms dangle and drag along the ground. For all this seeming awkwardness, trolls are very agile.

    A typical adult troll stands 9 feet tall and weighs 500 pounds. Females are slightly larger than males. A troll’s rubbery hide is moss green, mottled green and gray, or putrid gray. The hair is usually greenish black or iron gray.

    Trolls speak Giant.


    Combat

    Trolls have no fear of death: They launch themselves into combat without hesitation, flailing wildly at the closest opponent. Even when confronted with fire, they try to get around the flames and attack.

    Your age only means you're old enough to remember bulletin boards and that you're probably still computer literate enough to use some DOS prompts, not that you can't dumb yourself down enough to run an app.

    That particular link issue isn't you; it is the parentheses Wiki uses but RJ's URL app won't.

    How the generation gap plays out in online forums:

    A) You get called troll if you offer criticism or in any way correct some kid hiding between his mother's legs, complaining that you are picking on someone half your age.

    B) When they bully you, that's just you being butthurt.

    "Troll" used to mean someone that was so ugly they had to live under a bridge. But now it's normally used to describe someone who's so desperate for attention, they will say provocative things just to get a reaction....kind of like a 5 year old might do. Check out the posts of "Dontknowwhy" for a perfect example of a troll.

    A troll is someone who entertains themselves at the expense of others--basically an online bully. The worst offenders usually they get banned, once enough people are fed up with them.

    The accusation however is thrown around quite freely and without merit, so I'm sure nearly everyone has been accused of it before, usually when forum arguments disolve into name-calling. Take it with a grain of salt.

    Thanks guys.... never been accused of it. It's just been thrown around so much i began to wonder who they are talking about and maybe they were making reference to age and hopefully not me.

    Of course, it use to be .... way back when.... if you were trolling too slow you probably snagged one that wasn't that great and you should throw it back. But, that's fishing.. ha. Well it could be st8 dating or any kind of dating... gotta figure that one.
