Do you think that people need to stop calling troll all the time?

I know things are UNLIKELY but if someone has a serious question and is just called a troll it is not going to help anything. Please stop, if someone actually has a situation which you don't believe they're going to be discouraged and perhaps feel worse about it.

  • I don't see people who ask questions called troll nearly as often as smart ass anons who post rude answers for no reason than to try to provoke people. If you discounted the ones referring to blatantly obvious trolls, is the use of the word as common as you think?

  • I do call out trolls if they are obviously just trying to cause trouble and be intentionally mean.

  • Some questions are just too stupid to be serious. "Can I feed my baby formula I found in the attic?" "Is it possible to get pregnant by giving a hand-job?" I have a very difficult time believing any adult woman could be that stupid, and so I will call troll. If they are being serious - oh, well. They're probably too stupid to understand the response given anyway.

  • I agree, sure there are trolls, but it seems to be that often the troll hunters cause more drama than the question to begin with.
