Hello there.This is the Major speaking. Very Happy
A question?
I am fairly new to computing and a whole new Lexicon and Syntax seems to surround the entire thing,a little like mobilephone text speak.
However,I have noted references to something called a 'Troll' in these(and other)forum columns.As far as I know Trolls are some type of mythical creature much like smurfs,pixies or elves.
It would seem to have another meaning in the computer/forum world.
I am sorry to seem so thick but would somebody be so good as to explain what a 'Troll' is in this context.I can only ascertain that they are not popular and indeed seem somewhat despised.
Thankyou in anticipation.
Great Forum by the way,thoroughly enjoying myself,thanks.

Welcome Major Very Happy

A troll is basically a piece of shite who has no life.

Quote:
An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial and usually irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, with the intention of baiting other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion


Wiki has a rather good description:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_troll

welcome aboard Major, it is so nice to have a polite chap like yourself joining.
Trolls are worthless morons (usually kiddies) who post stupid/inane comments just to stir up trouble. As you can imagine, with a forum membership of our sort, they tend to have the life expectancy of a smoker in a firework factory.
Unfortunately the standard of trolling has been very low of late, think banjos and Burt Reynolds.

Feel free to ask him. I haven't written him in awhile so I don't know if that address works.

Mod edit - unnecessary full quote of post directly above, has been removed - SP

Terrific!
Maybe Cat Bingo is a bit of a problem in Africa.
I'll give him a go straight away,I hope he talks to me about Cat Bingo,I think with practice I could talk about it for ages.I must try and get the Colonel interested in it.Laughing
Thanks for the tip.

Many thanks Rodus.
I,m so impressed I signed the guestbook.
Just mentioned Catbingo to Mrs.The Major and as I write she is rolling around the kitchen screaming with laughter,I only need to look like I'm going to mention it and she starts again.With the proliferation of Cat type adverts on the Telly it could be a noisy night.
We are going to the recording of BBC's Question Time in Brum tomorrow night(seriously)and I am a bit worried about what question she may table now she is party to this esoteric knowledge. Laughing
