You are a Troll!

by • July 03, 2014

The Internet has provided writers with an unprecedented opportunity to be heard. From publishing e-books and updating personal blogs, to commenting in forums and tweeting about your breakfast, if you are a writer you are probably writing something online.

The question is: what are you writing?

The Troll

Do you spend an unusual amount of time thinking of clever screen names? Can you quickly, easily bring up counterpoints to even the most rational arguments? Do you like to argue for the sake of arguing? Have you ever been banned from a forum?

The most sophisticated trolls simply take a mildly contrarian stance on everything, sparking ongoing debates in otherwise placid communities. While we’re all for you exercising your right to free speech (in writing), remember that you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.

We want to hear from you. Let us know what kind of Internet writer drives you crazy, and what type you see in yourself.
