Some posters have complained that there is too much trolling on Forumosa and that this is ruining the site - while others claim that these posters are being thin-skinned and are too quick to label anyone who disagrees with them as a troll
Furthermore, there are wild discrepancies with regard to how out it is adjudicated by the mods
As such, it might be useful to try and define what trolling is so that posters can at least have some consistent guidelines to work with
A few things to consider:
Should trolling, whatever that may be, be banned, or is it all part of life on the internet?
What are the defining characteristics of offensive trolling? Examples?
Is trolling a troll still trolling?
Is dismantling someone’s argument in a robust manner trolling?
It would be great if people could discuss this subject in a calm manner and hopefully we can all gain some clarity around this complex issue
