No, I haven't. Probably because I'm not one nor have I ever done anything to warrant the label.

you're a troll if you dont have blind enthusiasm for primary results. i'm a troll because i know he won't get #1 in NH and don't set myself up for dissapointment.

Well, normally someone responds to/quotes a post/thread of yours, emitting the word "troll".

I have unfairly been labeled a troll and then warned by Mod for standing up for myself. The Mods protect some of the worst offenders.

I know who you are talking about and that is an isolated example.

I think the well thought out comment part helps more. I do wonder sometimes if people think at all before they post some things here. Ive seen some patently absurd suggestions and posts here...

Being called a troll is just a reality of being on the internet on a forum or chat. Annoying no doubt.

I've never called anyone Troll. Sure we might have our differences but i dont think we have many trolls here.

This is what happens when former democrats and the old right republicans get together. Oh yeah some independents and anarchists .

There are way fewer trolls than those that are called trolls. But there is a lot of trollish behavior by non-trolls. It's fine to disagree, but its really all about tact. For the sake of the Republic, we should try to set a good example.

I got tagged as a troll at freerepublic.com though I was as polite as could be.

There should be a separate category for freep "trolls". :)

I completely agree that the troll accusations is thrown around fast and loose and unfairly and I think that is incredibly stupid. It keeps us from distinguishing the folks who actually are trolls.

We probably all have to agree, seeing how over half of the voters have been similarly accused (and I doubt the troll-non troll ratio is not that high).

My 2 cents, take it for what it's worth:

If you start a substantial number of threads you tend to be on the self centered side. ;) Not that there's necessarily anything WRONG with that, but perhaps you could use it as a thought for some introspection.

Not everyone cares what you think every minute of the day ;)
Call your mom instead. :p

Yes and it hurt me because the person who called me that has no idea how much time and money my husband and I have invested. Hubby is a disabled vet, his name is included on the miltary endorsement page on RPs site. He has also been called a troll. When I was a child I was taught the golden rule. Now that I am much older and have a family, I have encouraged my children and their children to "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." That is after all the Ron Paul way to do things.

It is not serious. This is an internet forum. We don't actually mean anything by it. Most of this is silly.

I think if anyone on here is causing conflict and name calling even though we are all on the same team, that person should be reported. If they repeatedly make you feel uncomfortable or with one post make some discriminatory remarks that would eventually make you leave, put that individual on ignore.

People should feel included in this grassroots projects. People that take swipes at those and treat them as though they should be excluded are in the wrong.

Also, people calling others trolls for supporting Ron Paul, I question if they are taking someone's post the wrong way or if they are on another team.

There is a handful of people on this forum who have the mistaken idea they are either in charge or have divinely inspired knowledge. They throw the word "troll" at anyone who disagrees with them.
