Forum Trolling
This is meant to be a quick overview of how to effectively, legally troll someone over the internet, in the form of debate. Note thatthese in constructions are for quick, blatant trolling--If you want to really get under an entire community's skin, try PsyOps.

Ground Rules
DO NOT USE CAPS LOCK, EXCEPT IN A CONDESCENDING MANNER TO MOCK THEIR USE OF CAPS LOCK.1.Always strive to use perfect (or nearly perfect) grammar and spelling.2.Do not directly insult them or appear angry, as this gives them the impression that they're gaining ground. (Note that askilled troll can sometimes use this to their advantage with a sort of bait-and-switch maneuver.)3.
While the ground rules are important, here are a few simple ways to make yourself seem more intelligent.Use '--' and ';' correctly, so as to make yourself seem more intelligent.1.Base trolls on actual situations; Use facts to build up a lie.2.

To rebut an argument, break their post down into quotes, and rebut them sentence-by-sentence.3.. Use lists, ASCII diagrams, images (if allowed), etc to illustrate your point4.Point out every logical fallacy you can find in their argument (e.g. circular logic, naturalistic fallacy). A list of logicalfallacies can be found in Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_logical_fallacies)5.Point out the other person's bad grammar and/or spelling in a condescending manner at the end of your post.6.Use a thesaurus to find big words to use in your sentences, so it looks like you have a larger vocabulary and aretherefore more intelligent.7.Cite your sources, preferably in MLA format, at the bottom of your posts. You may also try using Chicago style citationsto backup individual statements.8.
Prolonged Arguments
The longer you debate, the more opportunities will become available to you. Try to take advantage of all of these, as it will causeyour opponent to RAAAAAAAGE.No doubt your opponent will have 'moved the goalposts' (another logical fallacy, note this as well), and as a result theremay be contradictions between their posts. Point out these contradictions.1.If they resort to using abstract metaphors, apply these metaphors to something else, so as to make both the metaphor and the argument behind the metaphor seem useless.
"The universe is like a book, and God is like an author" -> "Who's the editor? How do we know thatYehova and the universe are not the book and Thor is the author? And who the fuck published this bullsh*t?"1.2.Fragment your sentences. A moderate amount. To emphasize an argument or point.3.Use quotes--lots of quotes. Preferably from famous people. Better yet, quote-mine anyone that they quote or cite for something that aids your argument.4.
Getting yourself out of a pickle
It is inevitable that, eventually, you will say/do something stupid. Here are some things that you should avoid, and ways to avoidthem.
Increasingly long, drawn-out discussions on theoreticals.
This becomes especially common when debating theists,as you'll somehow end up arguing about things *within* Christianity/Islam/etc, as opposed to whether or notChristianity/Islam/etc (or whatever religion/philosophy you're debating against) is actually true. In these instances, whenin doubt, say "prove it".1.If you find yourself lacking understanding of the subject (or part of the subject), wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/) it.2.If you run out of material or can't think, use Google to find other people who have argued on the same subject, and stealtheir arguments shamelessly. Just make sure they don't contradict anything that you've said.3.Now, taking this advice to heart, TROLL! DO IT FGT!
Sites to Troll
Here is a quick list of some of the best places on the internet to troll.
This section includes any site where the main focus is discussion, including imageboards.

This website is dedicated to a great game series, but is kept up by a bunch of people who think they're all 1337 and b0ss. Themods there are an example of thinking to highly of yourself. The mods are also enemies to the lulz (at least 91% of the time.)Troll here if you are an expert or grand master troll, or you could do a (
) invasion.Starmen.net (http://www..starmen.net)
The "Official" Code Lyoko Forum
A bunch of 15-25 year old nerds and weirdos who like to have obsessive discussions on a childrens show that ended 3 yearsago. The forum is broken and has a lot of glitches, and the Admin and most of the mods are never around, so it is considered aneasy forum to troll for beginners.The "official" Code: Lyoko Forum (http://www.codelyoko.com/forum/forumen/index.php)
This site is full of pseudo-intellectual 16 year old Marxists, who advocate violent revolution and RAAAAAAAAAGE at sexism,and yet spend all their time talking about porn and /b/ in ChitChat, and who work at McDonalds.RevLeft (http://revleft.com/)
This is somewhat more difficult to troll than Revleft, as they approve all posts. Forum is full of middle-aged rednecks who gotfired from their construction jobs (for being lazier than spics), and so engage in a white-power-circle-jerk while rambling aboutJews, the Illuminati, Satanists, Communists, and Jews. For bonus points, sign up for an account on revleft and stormfront, andincite threads where they talk about each other. When done correctly, this ends up becoming an all out shitfest between the twoforums, with people on both sides of the divide ridiculing every post in the opposite forum.stormfront.org (http://stormfront.org)
Full of faggots who discovered the site through 4chan, and who think they are part of some special, unique (http://anonym.to/http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Angst) cultural movement. This makes them much more easy to troll than any other chan. Totroll, initiate OS flame wars, stupid attacks against Christians, stupid attacks against atheists, etc. It may also be valuable tonote that SysOp (Kimmo Alm) monitors every post made.Anon Talk (http://www.anontalk.com)
Teen support forum created by a teenager, David. It's rapidly grown more and more overrun with trolls, however it remains tohave a moderation team created by previous members, and a group of Support Leaders who answer eHelps, or emergencyhelp requests from members on the site with a problem they cannot resolve. Spamming and troll posts are removed soon after posted. Previously Banned Members are rebanned (somebody posted here on the post that I am editing that we have no IPbanning--this is not true. The mods can find IP addresses and ban people based on those; I've seen it happen many a time,especially for an incredibly insistent member, Anti Christ, who keeps coming back.) and we generally uphold a level of professionalism while questions are asked. The power distribution is as follows: The Admin, The Oversight Board (randomlychosen to see over moderator actions every week), the Moderation team, the Support Leaders, both Peer, as I describedbefore, and Tech, who help fix up the technical issues on the site, the members, the warned members, and the bannedmembers at the bottom. LiveWire is a hive of emo, fail, pedophilia, horniness, and stupidity, which makes it ripe for trolling.LOL, just kidding, we're all faggots who need a cock up our anus at all times.
