then you have the problem of distinguishing between what is "trolling" and what is simply war2 players interacting w/ one another. if it's left up to mods' discretion then people will always claim it's abuse when it happens to them or their friends. if you try to nail it down w/ some rules/code of conduct or w/e then it rapidly becomes exhaustive & starts to supersede common sense, + people start trying to exploit loopholes, throw the book at one another, etc etc etc

The thing is I actually associate some amount of fun/positivity with "trolling": like, you're saying something to get a reaction or have an effect, but there's generally some laughs involved, or at least some interest in sparking up some activity.  At the end of the day, we have a good time and maybe even learn something.

That's as opposed to just flaming people and fighting and insulting.

I hate all trolls I've ever met. That's after doing 5 seconds of thinking. Maybe some are not so hate-able. Edit: And I'm talking about those active trolls who know they are trolling and doing things for the sake of trolling. Not those unintentional trolls who troll because they are having a fit.

but yea there's something I've heard like... Guys insult each other and don't mean it while girls compliment each other and don't mean it. Some homoerotic guy bonding thing that makes absolutely no sense to me. Edit: maybe it's a guy on guy version of negging. How cute (and gay).
