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.

A troll posts stupid stuff.  Posts about things that are so stupid and off base everyone know they are not true.   

A bully is mean and thrives on insulting others.  Even if they don't thrive on it, that's what everyone else thinks about them. If someone disagrees with them they spout off at the mouth like that's actually going to make an impression on the other person.  When in reality, all they accomplished was making their own self look ignorant and pathetic.  In the end they probably feel like they really told someone off but what  actually happened was people just rolled their eyes and made a mental note to never take anything they say serious ever again.  So even when they go to a post and manage to make a somewhat dignified response, people reading it still think they are a little brat.  They're not given much more credit than a 13 year old throwing a temper tantrum - and we all know how we feel about kids who act like that.

Or won't let the billy boats gruff pass

Quoting kcangel63:

A bully steals your money and beats you up.

A troll hides under a bridge and eats you.


I may not be a perfect wife or mother but I am perfect in the eyes of my son and my husband and that is all that matters.

 Trolls smell worse and tend to have more hair.

Well what do you think?

I think trolls are relatively harmless and just say whatever to entertain themselves.

I think bullies are out to hurt feelings.

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