I am a Norwegian, and damn proud of it i might add, and the use of the name "troll" to describe these morons and basketcases is damn near depressing. I have studied the norse mythology and seen some pretty hefty pictures of trolls and believe me: These idiots do not diserve such a grand title.
So i ask of you to please reconcidur the shame you have cast upon our mythology and call them something else... uhmmm... sewer-mutants perhaps, or something smaller and catchier, maybe mormons...

hmm...

But you know Nero, people use the word "gay" to mean "someone/thing I don't like". It doesn't mean "homosexuals" like some people might think, so it's not offensive to them. In the same way, the people on this board have given "troll" an entirely new meaning. It's certainly not a burn upon Norwegians.

 ...or is it?  confused

I'm aware of that, but still. plus i'm against using the word "gay" in a sentan. Not because it degrading to that sort of lifestyle, on the contrary. I find it just stupid. I knew a guy who could say gay like 5 times in a sentance, and everytime i wish i had a piano-whire to end my missory.

Increase your vocabulary, people!

I don't like it either (though I swear being called "gay" thousands of times in the past has nothing to do with it), but there's not a lot you can do about it bar just living with it. Or killing everyone.

Well, it's not like "troll" is an exclusively PEEL thing. The term is used on the entire Internet for people who try to stir up trouble and flamewars. And the Danish stories I know about trolls (although we call them "trolde" ) doesn't exactly make them Gods best creations. They're malicious, hate-full and eat human flesh. The municipality I live in have a troll as it's cote of arms based on a statue by a famous local artist. The statue is called "Troll Smelling Christian Flesh". Cool statue, btw.

Incidently, you can see said troll-statue here and here.

So basically, fighting the use of troll, trolling, etc is futile (you will be assimilated), and it's not a burn on Norwegians or Nordic mythology.

Welcome to PEEL. Enjoy it here.

I've heard the word "troll" used as an insult countless times, not just on the internet, much less this particular board.

I know it's not exclusive to PEEL, but don't join the hype! Break out, start a cult, do something new and exciting, start saying "ezbaa", rejoice, the new way has come, WOOHOO!

Is anyone buying in to this?

and btw, that attack on Norwegians was uncalled for. That's yet another thing i'm sick off, generalistic twats who made up that "Say no to .no".

So back off sister before i go Bender on your ass! *snaps fingers*

And these idiots are the people who constantly use the words "gay", "retarded", "lame", and "troll". You figure it out.

"Oh, for crying out loud" just doesn't cut it.  This is insanity on a grand scale.

Not that there anything wrong with the word, it's basically just overused. I would loooove to go into a forum and read something like "BLANK is such a daffidill" instead of "BLANk is such a lamer"

Okay, this thread is getting silly ... and spammy. We need mod-action, stat!

Yes, I'm aware of the irony of this post.

Hey!  As a proud Welshman I object to my country's national flower being used as a term of insult!

Actually I don't really care.  Apathy is the cure.  You may want to try it sometime.

If you want to practise getting old, learn the following phrases:

"My social security cheque is late!"

"Stuff costs more than it used to!"

"Young people use curse words!"

I am a Mormon, and darn proud of it, I might add. The suggestion of the use of the name "mormons" to describe these morons and basketcases is damn near depressing. I have studied the Mormon religion and seen some pretty hefty pictures of Mormons and believe me: These idiots do not deserve such a grand title.
So I ask of you to please reconsider the shame you have cast upon our religion and call them something else... uhmmm... Norwegians perhaps, or something smaller and catchier, maybe trolls...

I hate it when people use things that i've said against me, there should be a rule against making me look like an idiot.

Actually i've been known to goof up my first posts at forums.

The forums will not be displayed to protect the ignorant.. uh, innocent.. i ment innocent!
Hey, don't laugh!

Something like "Republican"...

[Flexo]Naw, you're alright.[/Flexo]

Let's here it for being able to reference in context! Whoo-hoo!

And my last post was semi-serious. Suggesting that Trolls be called Mormons... that's just not nice... Normally I don't bother about this kind of thing, but your post lent itself so well to my cause that I just had to.
