What is a Troll ?

Craftjenn
I never thought a troll was meant to disturb, usually it's just that he's not aware of disturbing.
By some definitions, that is true. By your definition, anyone with even a hnt of any sort of ASD is a troll even though there is zero malicious intent. However, in the English-speaking world, the term carries strong negative connotations of malicious intent to cause unrest while not adding even the smallest bit of anything constructive.

Perception does play a key role. Due to my quirky sense of humour, and my habit of ignoring the parts of an argument I agree with while seeking clarification on what I perceive th be it's weak points tends to make folks think I'm more combative than I actually am, earning me accusations of being a (malicious) troll when I simply communicate differently even from most who share my native tongue. (I can't imagine how poorly I come across to those for whom English is a non-native language...)

Do not assume that you speak for all just because you are the loudest voice; there are many who disagree that simply have no desire to waste words on you.
