    I wasn't aiming that at you in particular as I'm guilty of lousy writing more often than not. It's just kind of funny that forums rely on good writing skills for users to make their points and it's usually the first thing we toss out while trying to quickly make a point. We're all works in progress anyway. :)

    Well if someone is a really good troll you'll never realize it until people are arguing and you notice that they haven't posted anything since the first page of a 53 page thread. A good trolling is subtle and plays on a group who has set in stone opposing views. Sometimes a trolling will backfire and will turn into a great discussion.
    When someone starts name calling that's not a troll, just bad manners. I don't think a certain recent thread was a troll, just bad manners.

    That was kinda my second point. Inflammatory language detracts from what might otherwise be a valid and useful discussion.

    We're cool. I took your post constructively since I try to write, not just text, and use real English.
