Do you call out Trolls?
Ignore them or call them out? Most people say "Do not feed the Trolls" but if I call them out - aren't I'm the one being the Troll then? https://youtu.be/36MWcj98QmY
Well, it depends. Some trolls are harmless and some are toxic. It's best to ignore them, but trolling really shouldn't be tolerated. It brings down the overall quality of any site that allows trolling.
Uh? What does calling out trolls mean. Are they like spirits?
Main Question: Generally no. Consider a troll is firstly defined with complete subjectivity and then collective. To me to call someone out means to challenge them like “Hey let’s meet in the parking lot and discuss this”.
Question #2: This question is regard to strategy IMO. I will ignore, probably won’t call them out, but may enter dialogue if I am not sure they are trolling. Thus, again, is defining some entity as a troll. Consider on the worldwide web a troll can be an entity composed of many persons.
Question #3: No unless you decide to be one. A troll is specific to a nature. Without becoming a Hub (maybe later) a troll is based on olden Norse Myth. A troll is not a gnome or a ghoul / ghost. A troll lives in a cave or under bridge. Their intent is to scare or cause fright.
They want to disrupt a traveler’s journey and then run back into their cave or under bridge. Their tactics are screaming like a banshee, throwing rocks and sticks, and they like the cover of darkness. Sometimes when the collective stops passing by their cave or bridge they may scare another troll out of their lair. More can be learned of trolls with the Poetic Edda and some Scandinavian lore and legend.
Of course this is based upon experience, is a humble opinion, and myth.
Got the audio from 'Beowulf and Grendel 2005 movie. The best version (now unable to find) is Beowulf radio drama, "Out from the misty moors came .. Grendel" Wish I can find that version again.
Thanks twice ptosis :-). Choosing as best and the interesting story to read. I am a fan of Norse myth and Britain legend. I enjoyed reading about Beowulf's life adventure. I found it inspiring. I have a story of patches now in that era.
I wonder what it is that I do but I don't seem to have any problem with trolls. Where do you go to find them? I think I might like to meet one. Are they hideous and disgusting. Or just harmless creatures looking for some attention. Can they hurt you if you do not let them?
Come on little troll. Here is a biscuit.
I don't have to walk over a bridge, so I never had that issue. But I think I might have hit one with my car
I have to watch that. I was referring to the Three Billy Goats Gruff fairy tale.
