Confessions of an Internet troll

29 January 2013, 11:04
Hi everyone.  My name is ... and I'm an alcoholic.  That's how it goes, right?  For new members at an AA meeting?  They have to confess and just accept who they are.

Well, my name is ... and I'm an Internet troll.

There are three things you never give an alcoholic:  infinite sympathy, a self-help guide on how to teetotal, or a six-pack.
Not to make light of any addiction, because let's face it, my Internet trolling addiction is as sorrowful as someone else's addictive vice. 

So after Zion's trolling article, I've decided to come clean.  It's sad that our beloved forums have fallen prey to trolling evildoers who have nothing better to do with their time and energy than to rile the masses.

Btw, the jury's still out old Zion, who may in fact be the biggest troll of us all, what with over 200 'articles' posted and his dubious talent for being able to attract scorn from even the most docile News24 user.  Well played, Zion.  Well played.

So it's confession time, people.  I stand with my hat in my hand (okay not really), but let's clean up this mess before it descends into utter insanity. 

I shall take my permanent leave of absence at this point, saying farewell to one and all, and simply leave you with 2 questions:
1.  Who is the biggest troll among us?
2.  After closer scrutiny, who on News24 would make your troll list?
