What is the difference between a TROLL and a BULLY?

Posted by   + Show Post

Tell me.

~~~~~         =^..^=        ~~~~~
I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.  

It's wrong to be a bully with one exception. It's ok to bully those you THINK are a bully.

So I can say something with the intent to hurt you and when you cry bully then I can just say I was getting you worked up, so now I'm a troll? Correct me if I'm wrong but trolls try to get an emotional rise out of you(anger, sadness, frustration), isn't that the same as intentionally hurting someone?

Just trying to grasp that.

lol. A bully is saying something to try and make someone intentionally mad or try purposely to hurt someones feelings. Troll is someone who just bullshits basically just to see other people's reactions.

Troll would be someone that just likes to stir the pot so to speak amoun the entire group.  Basically post BS stories that will get people riled up, and generally anon; but not always.   A bully is someone targeting a specific person and belittling them mercilessly and can lead to stalking (from minor stalking in cafemom land - follow persons posts, PMing them, etc- to actually carrying the stalking into real life by contacting friends or family member, facebook page look up, harrassment, etc).

>.> You're wrong as far as my opinion goes, lol. Making someone pissed isn't being a bully, that's just being a dick  troll But things such as name calling,  physical harm, emotional harm is being a bully. Causing someone to be pissed just to laugh at them when they finally do show that they're pissed off is being a troll. Otherwise anything after that is considered bullying.

Troll makes dumb topics to try to be funny or get attention. Bully attacks people with the intention of hurting their feelings.
