10 Types of Internet Trolls You'll Meet Online
Haters gonna hate, trolls gonna troll

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



An Internet troll is a member of an online social community who deliberately tries to disrupt, attack, offend or generally cause trouble within the community by posting certain comments, photos, videos, GIFs or some other form of online content.




You can find trolls all over the Internet – on message boards, in your YouTube video comments, on Facebook, on dating sites, in blog comment sections, and everywhere else that has an open area where people can freely post to express their thoughts and opinions. Controlling them can be difficult when there are a lot of community members, but the most common ways to get rid of them include either banning/blocking individual user accounts (and sometimes IP addresses altogether), reporting them to authorities, or closing off comment sections entirely from a blog post, video page or topic thread.





Regardless of where you'll find Internet trolls lurking, they all tend to disrupt communities in very similar (and often predictable) ways. This isn't by any means a complete list of all the different types of trolls out there, but they're most certainly some of the most common types you'll often come across in active online communities.
  1. The Insult Troll
  2. The Persistent Debate Troll
  3. The Grammar and Spellcheck Troll
  4. The Forever Offended Troll
  5. The Show-Off, Know-it-All Or Blabbermouth Troll
  6. The Profanity and All-Caps Troll
  7. The One Word Only Troll
  8. The Exaggeration Troll
  9. The Off Topic Troll
  10. The Greedy Spammer Troll

Read details about each type of troll here.

Why Do People Troll on the Internet?

Every internet troll has a different backstory and therefore different reasons for feeling the need to troll a community or an individual on the internet. They may feel depressed, attention-starved, angry, sad, jealous, narcissistic or some other emotion they may not be entirely conscious of that's influencing their online behavior.

What makes trolling so easy is that anyone can do it, and it can be done from a safe, isolated place as opposed to interacting with others in person. Trolls can hide behind their shiny computers, screen names and avatars when the go out trolling for trouble, and after they’re all done, they can carry on with their real lives without facing any real consequences. Trolling makes a lot of cowardly people feel stronger.

Dealing with Trolls

If a troll tries to provoke you,just ignore them. They’re not worth your time or emotional distress. Try not to take anything personally and remind yourself that their bad behavior does not change who you are.

Remember that a person who seems like a troll is actually the one suffering in some way and is trying to distract themselves and make themselves feel better by taking it out on you. If you can, try to have a good laugh and think about how sad it is that people actually feel the need to insult complete strangers on the internet.
If you're feeling strong enough, you might even consider responding to them with kindness by complimenting something about them (such as their profile picture, their username, etc). This is the last thing they'll expect from you, and while you'll have to risk being trolled again, there's always a chance that your unexpected kindness could move them in a way that changes their behavior for the better.

The Show-Off, Know-it-All Or Blabbermouth Troll

A close relative to the persistent debate troll, the show-off or blabbermouth troll is a person who doesn't necessarily like to participate in arguments but does love to share his or her opinion in extreme detail, even spreading rumors and secrets in some cases. Think of that one family member or friend you know who just loves to hear his or her own voice. That's the Internet equivalent of the show-off or know-it-all or blabbermouth troll. They love to have long discussions and write lots of paragraphs about whatever they know, whether anyone reads it or not.

True. And NT has their share of them. I myself am guilty of using some curse words at times in some comments to others, but, I am not at all proud of them, and it does not make me feel smarter than the others. It makes me feel ashamed of myself for doing so in the heat of the moment and accomplishes nothing in the discussion.

Oh, I don't know about that.  I know its a stereotype, but those don't always pan out!   In fact, the opposite may be true.  Lol. 

https://www.sciencealert.com/people-who-swearing-cursing-rude-words-better-vocabulary-science

If someone's ever accused you of sounding less intelligent because you swear too much, don't worry - science has got your back. A 2015 study found that those who have a healthy repertoire of curse words at their disposal are more likely to have a richer vocabulary than those who don't.

https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/swearing-study-intelligent-intelligence-university-of-rochester-a7916516.html

Intelligent people are more likely to swear, a study has found.

It’s the news that every foul-mouthed person has been waiting for – the opportunity to excuse your potty mouth as one of the side-effects of being smart.

Researchers at the University of Rochester quizzed 1,000 people about 400 typical behaviours, and discovered a strong like between intelligence and swearing.

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/health-benefits-of-swearing_n_5a5e44a8e4b0106b7f65b3a6

While swearing may have once been considered an unsavory habit, research has found there are some benefits to using more colorful language. Not only does cursing come with some mental and physical health perks, it also could positively affect how you converse with others. In other words, it’s pretty darn good for your overall well-being.

Need some evidence? Below are a few science-backed reasons why it isn’t so bad to incorporate a few swear words into your lexicon:

Research has shown that cursing might increase the effectiveness and persuasiveness of an argument. Not only that, swearing can communicate how you feel about a certain subject without explicitly explaining it or resorting to a physical altercation, the BBC reported:

By swearing, we not only communicate the meaning of a sentence, but also our emotional response to the meaning — our emotional reaction to something. It also allows us to express anger, disgust or pain, or indicate to someone that they need to back off, without having to resort to physical violence.

Yup - some folks just continue to spew cusswords and "may" actually have a broad vocabulary - of which, most of the vocabulary is cusswords.

Just because a person has a wide vocabulary does not mean they have a greater intelligence.

It is not fun when it happens to you.

On Feb 22, 2014 I mentioned on NV that my ancient mother and I would be among the counterprotesters at a Westboro Baptist protest against Jason Collins coming out in the NBA outside the OKC Thunder game the next evening. On Feb 23rd, the next evening, we must have been identified among the small group of protesters and followed because my home was vandalized that night. On Feb 24th three members of NV taunted me openly with their intimate knowledge of exactly what had transpired the night before. Were it not for this I would not have tied it all back to what I had foolishly said about where and when we would be at a specific place and just assumed we were followed.

This is all I am going to share but do beware of what you reveal online.

Yes. He has a medical condition which is treated with mj.

He should have thought about the repercussions of his actions before he decided to harass someone, unless you don't think that I should have defended myself. I reported him to the forum admins' but they said that it wasn't against the TOS.

A metatroll is an internet troll who trolls by deliberately provoking or 'feeding' other internet trolls, attempting to make them believe that people are reacting seriously to the original troll attempt, or attempting to provoke other people into believing the metatroll has fallen for the original troll when in fact the metatroll has not done so.

If left to continue their games, Trolls can seriously affect the quality of the site community, and deter some Members from participating. Especially, those who continually target the same Members whom they feel some dislike for, or have a personal grudge against. When they are allowed to continue this kind of behavior it only emboldens them to be even more abusive.

Some also do their Trolling toward women, as they hold women in disdain, especially, those who are not reluctant to hold their own against their personal attacks.

This applies to most social sites, and we have a few who engage in Trolling here on NT as well.

I believe that TPTB on websies often credit their pet trolls with increasing site participation and maybe even feel dependent on them as individually they do make lots of comments and they do often inspire many others to comment in response to their trolling butt really they ultimately will run off way more members decimating both participation and the overall quality of contributors. Sometimes management is going to make mistakes. It only becomes a tragic folly when TPTB cannot or will not recognize that they merely made a very human error and then take necessary corrective actions...

However, from what I have seen myself, those who continually respond to the Trolls are the same ones time after time. They are the Troll's 'baiters' to keep giving the Troll comments to respond to, thus, continually able to create a less than productive and/or hostile environment which few other than themselves wish to participate in. In the end, the site becomes less and less conducive to those who wish to engage in civil and meaningful discussion.

They never offer legitimate comments or intellectual debate, they just insinuate they are being trolled or the other members are trolls. They struggle to understand what trolling is or what a troll is and then condemn the forum for not disposing of these mythical trolls. What they are really saying is the forum should create an echo chamber.

Sorry John, but, I don't find BF comment 'Trolling'. His comment is on topic and expressing his own POC and opinion. The same as all Members are allowed to do.

Good one. I have seen this a lot where people are wither unwilling or unable to exchange ideas and they try to shut people down simply by calling them a troll. Then the person so-labeled is put in the position of having to "prove" to a closed-minded jury that they are not trying to troll.

Never troll a man with a tomahawk. Life lessons only Newstalkers can teach.

I suppose there is something of a gray area between The Insult Troll and The Forever Offended Troll. How do we identify the lines separating bad manners vs strong opinions and good manners vs extreme sensitivity?

The content troll: Runs to comment early on your article to tell you they do not like what you've seeded or authored. They proceeded to meta about the site and how you've ruined it. They also complain about the classification you've chosen and provided reviews of the author or source.

When their comments are removed for off topic trolling or meta. They wear out the forum operators.

The One Word Only Troll

There's always that one contributor to a Facebook status update, a forum thread, and Instagram photo, a Tumblr post or any other form of social posting who just says "lol" or "what" or "k" or "yes" or "no." They're certainly far from the worst type of troll you meet online, but when a serious or detailed topic is being discussed, their one-word replies are just a nuisance to all who are trying to add value and follow the discussion.

From my experiences over the years on several venues, this type of troll's "contributions" may also consist of the following even when documented facts and evidence have already been provided:

  • Bullshit!
  • Link?
  • Source? 

They remind me of children who seek attention even if it's negative.

Excellent, the one word troll.....

Lies!

Wrong!

No!

The one word troll usually suffers from poor grammar and ignorance of punctuation. The one word saves them from themselves. When they do elaborate it's usually an intellectually inferior ramble. This troll should probably discontinue life on the internet. They are too stupid.

Your block quote doesn't appear in comment 16.1.  Do you have something of value or interest that you could add to the seeded topic?

looks like I must have altered a quote from a NT moderator then. please feel free to report it.

to the topic -

I'm surprised religious trolls didn't make the list. you know, the internet crusaders that threaten the wrath of god and start quoting scripture when their arguments fail at logic and reason.

Only a petty person would report something like that, IMO.

As the article says, the list isn't a complete list of troll types. I'm a pretty flexible and tolerant guy, so religious (or non-religious) folks don't bother me. I don't consider either type to be trolls.
