  • What Is A Troll?

    The term derives from "trolling", a style of fishing which involves trailing bait through a likely spot hoping for a bite. The troll posts a message, often in response to an honest question, that is intended to upset, disrupt or simply insult the group.

    Usually, it will fail, as the troll rarely bothers to match the tone or style of the group, and usually its ignorance shows.


    Troll isn't a CM thing, it's an internet thing.  To post a picture from the internet, you have to use the full editor option, and then use the Add a Photo button.  Choose the 2nd tab to paste a URL, or use the first one to upload from your computer.  If you are trying to save pictures from CM, it's a violation of site policy due to someone who was stealing other user's images to create fake profiles.

  • Yes, you're right, a troll is someone who creates a fake account or asks a non legit question to get a stir out of everyone. And I have always did a save as, to desktop or where ever you want, you might be able to copy-paste but i'm not sure about that.

  • You can post pics from online. You need to have the URL of the image then just c/p it into the 'add a photo' tab ' and the 'paste url' tab.
