The Walking Dead : Why is this not convincing?

Why is this not convincing?

This is one of Anna's responses:

"You mean how I handed you your ass in that thread after making a fool of yourself? You and bents are about as pathetic as people can get. Now I understand why most posters hate the both of you. You all can not stfu about me for a moment. Poor old man bents made 2 call outs. Dumb and dumber the both of you. Yet still u are making an ass of yourself and putting political labels on me when u were told I am not into politics. Bravo to the both of you making yourselves look like jackasses."

I'm not doing this to poke fun at her. I'm fascinated, as someone who has studied troll posts for years, with what constitutes good trolling. Rocket started me on this by pointing out that nobody buys the image Anna wants to project, of her sitting around, sipping at her tea, incredibly amused. What's amiss with the post, I will submit, is the obvious rage behind it. Even inferior trolls like Boreson are too canny to reveal the anger too obviously. The takeaway from this is: the good troll may be angry, but the anger is sublimated into insults that amuse and stick. Timing is also important.

Here endeth the lesson.

What’s your take on Ben then? How would you grade his trolling?

I wasn't around for Ben's glory years, but from the little I saw, the guy was very good. He had a genuine sense of humour, and a lot of malice. I heard he was a consummate doxxer.

Re: Why is this not convincing?

Persistence while using millions of accounts to flood the board was something his strategy relied on. He often would attack someone nonstop until they blocked him, which was kind of a win in his eyes.

He also had the vocabulary to formulate some decent material/insults, despite how English isn’t his main language. I also noticed Ben had a way of figuring out what people’s weak points are, and he would be ruthless with his punches aimed to them.

Edit: He didn’t have much in terms of charisma though.

Re: Why is this not convincing?

I ended up rather liking him. He seemed to think TWD board was interesting, and said a lot of complimentary things about us. Of course, that may just have been him in retirement. I didn't encounter him when he was in full flow.

Yeah, I'm not going to read all that but I want drunkenly said I was ceiling around the coast of Ohio with the queen. Who is the liar now, bitch

🦸‍♀️ Up, up, and away! 🦸‍♀️

Jesus, are you channeling Anna????

Re: Why is this not convincing?

Lol@you quoting Anna! You hardly ever quote anyone. The last female I saw you get into a dragged out fight was Mother of Badgers from IMDb.

Re: Why is this not convincing?

God help me, I'm enjoying this.
Goodbye, everyone.
