Psychology of Trolling (video, discussion)



Watch on YouTube

I instantly thought of SS after seeing this video, even though a lot of what it describes isn't quite as prevalent now as it was in the past.

Recently, I've amended my views to reflect a greater tolerance for speech, expression, and even non-malicious trolling, but I still maintain that without a fair and extensive site moderation team, allowing for such tolerance in these forums would only result in broken windows. Likewise, the civility and calm that comes with an established authority and order would be, in my view, too overbearing without the freedom to instigate chaos or challenge the way we currently do things here.

So, what do you guys think?

I think too many people here whine and make no effort to do constructive things. (though, lets not devalue discussion. Its the 1st biggest thing missing from school)

I also think I judge things without understanding them.

Purity is to Believe only that which deserves it.
Wisdom is to follow only the Opinion which makes the best use of evidence.
Excellence is to be mindful of all these things in Living.

It's a bit hard to do constructive things when so much of your waking hours are stolen away from you by unconstructive things pretending to be constructive. Not impossible, sure... but difficult.

People with jobs have similar problems... school and jobs are like the biggest things preventing people from being too dangerously constructive on a global scale. There's a conspiracy for you. Razz
