  • Sure? Most likely they turn out to be the complete opposite of how they act online. You could make a reality show of it

  • I don't think confronting one would do you any good, just don't give them attention.

  • If tailgating a paying commuter through the ticket gates on the subway so that you don't have to buy a ticket counts as trolling, then yes, I confront the person.

    Did it just this afternoon. I yelled 'WHAT ARE YOU DOING, MAN??' at him in in my outraged teacher voice and all my dumpy (for southern Europe) 5ft6 glory, dressed in a flowery jacket, pink heart necklace and white open-toe sandals, in a foreign accent to boot, and the bloke looked absolutely terrified. It felt way better than it should have done.

    • I’ve never heard 5’6 referred to as “dumpy” before. Glad you embarrassed that freeloader though.

      • Thank you! I'd have said 'stocky' but that's too much of a compliment. I'm heavy for my height.

  • There's really no point in doing so. It's best to ignore them.

  • No, it's pathetic.

  • Hell yeah. Most of these are just dumb asses who are trying to get a rise out of people. It's "cute", I suppose.

    I just wish that these dumb asses didn't take themselves as seriously as they do. They occasionally find themselves in positions of authority and it's really fucking annoying.;)

  • No, it's not worth potentially putting your life in danger over (reminds me of a story a family member told me about two groups of teenage guys taunting each other over a CB radio back in the '70s and one group tracking the other down, which resulted in one person getting shot and killed and another spending life in prison over it). Not to mention trolls are usually just attention starved people with way too much time on their hands, so why is anything they say or do worth wasting time and energy on? It's much better to just let it roll off your back.

    You never know what anyone online is like in real life or what they could do to you. I wouldn't try to confront anyone online in person.
