for those accused of being trolls on livejournal
The Merrian·Webster and Garfield Dictionary (DON'T YOU SAY IT!) defines a troll as a number of things.

Used as a verb:
To sing the parts of a song in succession is one. To fish be trailing a lure or baited hook from a moving boat is another. To sing or play jovially is also one of the definitons for troll.

None of these seem particularly bad.

Used as a noun:
A lure used in trolling and also the line with its lure which harkens back to the verb form. Then there's the more popular one most of us kinda know, being a dwarf or giant in Scandinavian folklore inhabiting caves or hills.

Still, not so bad...once you get past the people eating and tormenting of goats over a bridge thang. It is, however, the following one that is the focal ppint of this communtity.

It is annoyingly hard to find good troll images you can use for a community's appearance.Urban Dictionary:
1) One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument
2) One who purposely and deliberately (that purpose usually being self-amusement) starts an argument in a manner which attacks others on a forum without in any way listening to the arguments proposed by his or her peers. He will spark of such an argument via the use of ad hominem attacks (i.e. 'you're nothing but a fanboy' is a popular phrase) with no substance or relevence to back them up as well as straw man arguments, which he uses to simply avoid addressing the essence of the issue.

I have been accused of being a troll, as I'm sure many of you have at some time or another, and I just don't see it. Maybe once or twice but for the most part, not so much. After one time too many of having this mislabeling directed at me I decided to put this community together.
    • Start your post with a link to where it came from.

    • If no such link is available, should your accuser have commented and then deleted their comment so it just showed up in your email (more the coward them) then copy the text of the accusation in your post.

    • Argue your case, in whatever manner you see fit, showing why you are not a troll. Explain what your actual intent was.

    • Wait to see what the opinions of the mob with pitchforks and torches are. Feel free to defend yourself against the mob mentality.

Originally made this for a guy named MonsterRylan who was something of a monster is his own way. Figure if you want to mention the person who accused you, this can be their custom tag in your post.

If you want to advertise any kind of community please do so at Livejournal OverdoseWe·Need·a·Life and not here. I used to allow advertising in any of my communities if it kept to the theme of that community but I'd like to cut down on that a bit...until it dwindles to nothing.
