Internet, fuck. Especially YouTube.

There was a time when the word was used as it was meant to be used on the internet; to point out people trying to cause a commotion online. Instead, nowadays, the internet illiterate decided to misuse the word. They decided that:

A) Anyone who disagrees with their opinion is a troll
B) Anyone who gets angry is a troll
C) Anyone who makes something with the intent of being humorous, but displays themselves in a serious manner, is a troll
D) Anyone who fights with them is a troll

Because of these people using the word incorrectly, people saw how they used it and continued to use it in the incorrect manner, instead of the intended manner. Now, the word is just lame.

Thanks, 12 year olds of YouTube. Thanks for ruining the interwebs.

I love trolling, It was an art form. Now we got these wannabes spouting memes like Ol' Faithful spouts water. I actually take time to know a person and wreck them down but these kids just run n' gun their way to anger. I once spent a week getting to know some fat girl on the internet just to mess with her. Damn kids have no respect for the art.

Why are you surprised? Every internet term or word has it's time in the spot light and then it crashes and burns.

Usually when it crashes and burns is when it becomes misused, overused, or just annoying.

I've noticed for awhile that even if one of my friends says something stupid on Facebook, a different friend will comment, "Quit trolling."


I respond to every message!

I still think the word "troll" was ruined when it meant much more than something like an ugly creature that lived under a bridge and kept goats from crossing. With that, you probably have much more to blame than 12-year-olds.

I say that would be a devil or an imp.

Anybody who trolls multiple threads should be a "Roaming Gnome"

Welcome to the internet, OP!

People kill jokes/ruin things just like irl!

My favorite example is people who started using FTW.
FTW - For the Win.
A phrase used in online gaming to commend a job well done.
Headshot through a wall for the match-winning kill would be FTW.
Opposites.
FTL - For the Loss.
Some idiot took our flag but died with it on the very top of a mountain.

What retards think it means:
Fuck the world
WTF backwards (fuck the what)
etc.

Also:

This happened to the word "noob" as well, internet culture is starting to be seen as trendy or something and more and more people start adapting its lingo.
