A picture's worth a thousand snarks
Commenting on a really well-done photo of a gay-pride rally:
Me: That's a great photo; thank you.
Jerkoff: It's a picture of protestors complaining about stuff. Maybe" great" now stands for "unoriginal" or something, I'll have to check Webster.
Me: Ohhhh, snarky snarky! I was referring to the balance of subjects, angles, and lighting in the picture from a photographer's perspective.
Oh, and if it made you so uncomfortable you had to be snippy with me, then it's an AWESOME photo. ;)
(I'm sure he'll have a retort, so updates to come) Current Mood: amused
Welcome, new FTI (Friendly Troll Investigator) Agent. You are at The Troll Files, where we collect and analyze information leading us to exposing the truth: that trolls exist and are actively assaulting our happy utopia that is LiveJournal.
If you are new, please make sure you have read the rules
for this community. The default security level for posts is "friends", and must stay so for any posts with direct quotes from people. Public posting is fine for non-quoted experiences or discussion. Please respect this rule so no harassment or similar bad stuff occurs. We are not here to seek revenge on trolls, just to expose them for what they are and provide advice to those seeking help.
Feel free to post asking if someone is trolling or just being inane; we'll be happy to give you our two cents. Hopefully, by discussing questionable posts, we can more effectively deal with trolls while giving people who are just lacking in online experience guidance.
