Internet Trolls are Narcissists, Psychopaths and Sadists

Quote

In this month's issue of Personality and Individual Differences, a study was published that confirms what we all suspected: Internet trolls are horrible people.

Let's start by getting our definitions straight: An Internet troll is someone who comes into a discussion and posts comments designed to upset or disrupt the conversation. Often, in fact, it seems like there is no real purpose behind their comments except to upset everyone else involved. Trolls will lie, exaggerate, and offend to get a response.

What kind of person would do this? Some Canadian researchers decided to find out.

Read more at the link provided above. The part I found most interested was that trolls will "lie, exaggerate and offend to get a response".

that trolls will "lie, exaggerate and offend......."

You are so right
just what I was thinking

Matt.12:34
O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things?
( Post good things )
for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth ( Keyboard ) speaketh.

35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth ( Post ) good things:
and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth ( Post ) evil things.

36 But I say unto you,
That every idle word that men shall speak,
(Post on the Internet )
they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

37 For by thy words ( Post ) thou shalt be justified,
and by thy words ( Post ) thou shalt be condemned.

Most evident here at GCF when members post their dribble in a board that is contrary to their own views, in an effort to stir a pot that doesn't need stirring.  ::lookaround::

The FBC

    www.phatmass.com/phorum/i...56861&st=0

    here's what the FBC is all about:

    the FBC is an organized effort by phatmass to explain and defend the faith on protestant forums.
there are four groups right now. each one has a group leader that is in charge of the strategic approach of the group,
for answering questions from his group members, and for maintaining charity.
each group also has a prayer warrior that prays unceasingly for the group to which he is assigned.
in the past we had floaters who would go from forum to forum and help out wherever they are needed
 but i think i'm going to get rid of them. finally,
we have a "chapel" in the FBC board where prayer warriors and group members can post prayers for their group.

    the FBC is an excellent experience for anyone who wants practice defending the faith.
for one, you're not alone. there is always someone there to help you.
and of course, you will learn more about your faith in the process.
this should also aid your prayer life, since prayer is so essential to what we are doing.

    i'm resigning as the director of this endeavor.
Era Might will be the new man in charge. i trust in his abilities,
and i will be helping him whenever i can, perhaps as a "vice-president" of sorts.

    the positions available are:

    --group leader
    --crusader
    --prayer warrior

    when you post, please let me know which position you are applying for. also,
give me some idea of your level of knowledge about catholicism and your experience defending your faith
and engaging in dialogue with others. note that not everyone who applies will be accepted.
if you are rejected, it will not be b/c of your lack of knowledge or experience
but b/c you hold some heretical doctrine or b/c your apologetical approach is consistently uncharitable.

    everyone will be informed via pm regarding the next step in the process as soon as decisions are made
about the makeup of each group and the forum assignments for each group.
if anyone has any questions, you can post them in this thread as well.

    pax christi,
    phatcatholic
