Why are there trolls on hubpages? Does ANY site manage to avoid trolls?
Forget the blatant self-promoters / "snake oil salesmen" hubbers, that's not who I'm talking about.... anyway, why wouldn't a troll stay on digg, youtube or a gazillion other forums or websites where they can at least make themselves seem more important?
Trolls probably go where ever they can be noticed and made to feel important by people who respond to their off topic messages.
they go wherever they have an audience, and have a desperate need for attention. HP does try to manage them and also depends on it's members to report any TOS. I think much of their online behavior is due to the fact that they can't act like that in their public life. the key is to ignore them and if they go over the line, report them.
Thanks, I just thought that HP might be a site that trolls and bullys would avoid....Not sure why--- I guess it just seems "above" that.
Defining a troll would be hard enough. Writing an algortithm to remove these automatically, nigh on impossible. Let's face it - you might consider one comment trollish and I might think it hilarious. Trolling is more about the repetively negative comments submitted. The pattern isn't obvious until there are many.

There are some irritating entities in the forums who seem to get into good threads trying to start pointless arguments with pointless questions or are just plain rude for no reason. I have seen reference to trolls...
