What makes you a REAL member at NC.COM.....

.. and NOT a troll. I'm just curious as it seems that some posters are assumed to be real while others aren't being questioned at all. What are the deciding factors when you are determining whether a poster is a TROLL or not?!

Where is that ADORABLE troll emoticon when I need it?!?!
i picked combination - and it's a combination of posting style and topics.

sincerity has nothing to do with the date one joined.

that said - i confronted the coulter-supporter based on "her" joined date because nothing disgusts me more than people who hold strong beliefs and refuse to stand behind them using their own name.

I really don't care if someone is a "real" poster or not.

I do suspect that some posters are former members or friends of members as they seem to know what buttons to push and have certain other posters backing them up for no reason that could be found openly on the board. But honestly, I just don't care. Have at it and have fun.

I do not like it when the hostility comes into play, but, that happens all around. Fingers can't be pointed at just certain posters. It usually comes down to perrception.

I think ZzZoe, has brought up a lot of this troll stuff again as well, and, if someone *thinks* she is a troll, then ignore her! I don't get the hoopla

I take it that my new name here REALLY IS Miss Honey!!
I put that it was the topics they choose to post on because it seems like most of the times when the trolls do pop up it on post that are already senseitive and they just want to add fuel to the fire... OH and I think Miss Honey is a lovely new name you've been given
A real member is someone who wants to join in on discussions, debates, and topics brought up on the board. A troll is someone who joins the board with the intent of starting trouble and pissing people off.

Then there are those who get banned and then create an alias to start trouble all while swearing up and down that they are not said banned member.

Not that there's anyone like that here.

But if there were, I wouldn't necessarily care - unless of course the alias was of said banned member that I didn't particularly care for. In which case I'd probably give them a hard time - but that would be a pretty silly thing for someone to do. I can't imagine someone's life would be that sad.

Thank God we don't have anyone like that on this board!!

No snark intended (but I think you know that, babywavy) .........
I'm just sayin'.........

(don't worry Meg, I think I'm being snarky enough for the both of us )

You are MY GURL!!

as long as I continue to cover my eyes when I see your posts on the race threads..
I think its a combination. When someone storms onto the board and automatically starts being snarky and seems to know background information about other posters- I get suspicious. Usually newbies are nice and docile in the beginning. That's an assumption though.
