This is an honest question, okay?
Why do you do it? I know most of you will say "because it's fun" but the root of my question is, why do you think it's fun? Do you ever feel guilty about trolling people for your own amusement? Do you consider trolling to be substantially different from bullying? Does your background have anything to do with your need to hurt/upset/belittle/shock/or disgust others to make yourself feel good? Do you have any mental or emotional disorders? How long have you been trolling?
Edit: Okay I'm getting a lot of responses that people troll but benignly, not to hurt anyone. I think that is true in a lot of cases but I also think that there is a more malicious type of trolling as well. I think we've all seen some really awful troll posts here, hurtful things that just are not funny at all. In my opinion, I see two different kinds of trolls, those that are in it for the lulz and those that are in it for the hurt feelings and anger. This thread is directed at those who are in it for the anger. But others can stillr eply too if you want. :) (IF this edit doesn't makse sense you can read my reply to TheTrollCat on page five, I think i articulated it a bit better there, haha.)
