Why call troll?

So I'm curious about this website, I know someone who was just deleted from this website and called a troll for asking a completely legit question about pregnancy.

  • Really? That's crazy! She should just start a new profile.

  • They don't "just delete" people for a single incident of anything. You are warned first, then suspended, and if you still screw up after that, then they'll cancel your acct. And since they aren't enforcing ANY rules in the answers section until they rewrite them unless they are blatant trolling or racial slurs, etc, your friend most definitely did not lose her account over an answer. Someone's lying here.

  • I just asked the same question for her to help her out and no one has called me a troll. It was asking what to do about a friend who is preg with her 3rd and thinks she does not need to go to the doc because she feels she has enough experience to do it herself.

  • She was probably called a troll because that sounds like the type of question people ask just to get a rise out of people...which is what a "troll" does.

  • But it was a legit question and they should have asked before assuming she was trying to get a rise out of people. She asked on another parenting website and they all gave her advice without calling troll. If she was trying to get a rise out of people she would have B33n TypN LKe diS about being 15 and preg.
