He said this himself! He's either constantly trolling or never trolling. What he did here is not different, in my opinion, than his normal behavior. I think a ban was appropriate, personally, but 14 days seems excessive due to the past history of the poster always acting like that without penalty! On the other hand, Zuga doesn't know that. If I was Zuga, I'd wonder why I'm being attacked.



The definition of, and penalties for, trolling are very fluid around here. One gets the death penalty, one gets 14 days, one gets nothing. Some of that is who gets their feelings hurts, some of it seems to be biased based on views, and some of it is the vagueness of the crime's definition.

Every time I'm accused of trolling, I always
ask for the posts where I was doing this.
So far not one member has pointed to
a specific thread or post. They just don't
like me, so anything I say is trolling to them.

Trolling is like obscenity. Difficult to define, but you know it when you see it.

Apparently this is not true, because I've yet to
be shown a thread I was trolling in after being
accused.

Well don't bark at me about that. I've never accused you of it.

Exactly what I was trying to say. And I think Buzz is someone who almost never gets a penalty.

Everyone must be trolling you. I think everyone must like you, or you'd have gotten penalized for trolling. Doesn't that make the most sense?

No. That I'm not trolling is what's happening.
Again, the average person thinks trolling is
someone saying something they don't like.
They have not clue one what real trolling
is.

I think the average person has never heard of trolling unless related to fishing...I never had before this site. The average internet user or teenager...I don't think your definition is what they think. I'd agree with RonC, it's certainly vague and has indefinite boundaries. If you're not trolling, and everyone is always accusing you of trolling, aren't they trolling you? Why wouldn't they be...it obviously has you slightly annoyed, and you consider it false and baseless.
