英会話ブログ その647     Internet Flaming & Trolling (3)

2015/06/27

Trolling is slightly different from flaming.  In trolling, a person might try to get into various discussions on the web in order to deliberately cause discord and trouble among the other participants.

A person who does this is known as a troll. ( note: originally, a troll was a character of Norse mythology, but this has little connection to the modern usage).

Trolls love to humiliate others or to trick them into revealing embarrassing or personal information.  They might also try to do something mean to net "newbies" just to cause trouble.

Flames and trolling messages are often full of spelling and grammar errors.  Whether this is because the troll is trying to hide their true identity or they're just stupid is a matter of opinion !                                                (G.K)
