How to Become an Internet Troll

<!-- google_ad_section_end() --><cite>By an eHow Contributor </cite> What's This? <!-- google_ad_section_start() -->

You're sitting at your , completely bored and looking for something to amuse yourself with. Sure, you can check out porn sites (again), or you can have a little harmless fun by trolling message boards, chat rooms and online forums. What's a troll you ask?

In technical terms, an troll is someone who aims to cause emotional abuse to the participants of an online. In layman terms, a troll is someone who wants to ruffle feathers and stir the pot for their own amusement. They do this by planting inflammatory messages against a sensitive topic, disrupting and discrediting members who support the topic.

<!-- google_ad_section_end() --> <script type="text/javascript"></script> Difficulty: Moderately Easy

Instructions

<!-- google_ad_section_start() -->
  1. 1

    Secure your internet privacy. Hide your identity from the websites that you visit. One way to achieve privacy is by using an anonymous proxy server as a mediator between you and the websites you visit. Another way to do this is by downloading and installing a free software called "tor."

    Also, create an anonymous email for trolling. During the registration, use false contact information to conceal your identity from internet investigators.

  2. 2

    Find an unmoderated online community that is established around a cultural, political or religious theme. Make sure that the topics offered are ones you will enjoy abusing. If you really want to be a jerk, go to one of the more popular portals like AOL and post messages in topics that cover disasters and controversial events.

  3. 3

    Contribute nothing of value to the discussion forum. As a good troll, your goal is to abuse the members psychologically and provoke negative reactions out of them. Go big or don't go in at all. Have fun with it, when someone counter-attacks, get playful with them--nothing pisses off someone in a rage than when you joke around with them.

  4. 4

    Make personal attacks repeatedly toward those who support the ethos of the group. Get as nasty as you want, after all, it's the internet--who's going to find you? Keep it fun though, don't threaten to do any bodily harm to anyone, no one wants to get in a physical altercation.

  5. 5

    Argue repeatedly, using irrelevant facts, so that you disrupt the flow of the thread.

  6. 6

    Expose the stupidity of new, unsuspecting members by trying to engage them in an argument when it is very well-known that you yourself do not believe your position.

  7. 7

    Plague that newsgroup for years. View your troll activity as a form of . Add sophistication and complexity as you progress

Troll activity has diminished in recent months. On the other hand, Steelers homerizm has increased exponentially. Thankfully, Ben Roethlisberger will assure us, by playing, that the Steelers season ends quickly in the playoffs.

Good ridance JJ. You were nothing but a joke anyway. You'll be back in three or four months to hand out warnings and have them overturned again. It's a predictable cycle from a predictable dolt like you. Until then, enjoy your other accounts.
