What is a Troll ?

Translated from french (see ), related to my post on "Is PVP RP?" https://app.ryzom.com/app_forum/index.php?page=post/view/193701 : about this sentence :
" we are all "the stupid troll" of an some other homin :p "

First, some of my personnal "general laws" in life:
1. Homins are more often clumsy than mean.
2. corollary of 1 : we are all "the stupid troll" of an some other homin :p
3. some homin listen but never speak - it doesn't mean they have "no thinking". And think together, elabobate is not necessarily equivalent to taking part in a "hard" way.


I never thought a troll was meant to disturb, usually it's just that he's not aware of disturbing. However, we do not all have the same values, we do not all speak "of the same place" - unless we believe that it is easier to be a slave than a free one, to be an homine than a homin, and/or to be wounded rather than valid and healthy... (the list is long, I'm done)

Most of the time, a troll is just a "nice, very clumsy guy", he talks about his point of view (which is supposed to be... except that... he/she thinks he/she is "majority", "universal" etc), and, in any case, he/she doesn't realize (lack of empathy? imagination? too much fear?) that he/she denies the simple existence of his/her interlocutor: p
It is a group dynamic. That why I talked about "pensée unique", "pensée de groupe" (groupthink).

The so-called "minorities", the marginalized, the "excluded", the poor, the queer, the unusual... all those who rarely have the right to speak, because they no longer dare to take it, because they lack the words: the language itself betrays them, the "tree that covers the forest" famous tip... very well describe the phenomenon :p

In other words : there are those who have symbolic power (and who will intervene, argue, joke, be very comfortable, and publicly - everyone finds their words relatively "standard"), and those who will never get it. D

Sometimes the messenger, carrying bad news, is murdered for revenge. The messenger is not necessarily clumsy, has no bad intentions. But perhaps the messenger had another point of view, which disturbed their comfortable habits for them?

Not trying to offense anyone. Just a thought :p
