There are a number of ways to be told you have become famous, or infamous, in the Forum. You can get mentioned in the "Guess who I saw in a match" post, which may or may not be still going; you can get called out in matches by strangers who either tell you they loved your post or that you and your posts should die; or you can get your own troll.

When you get your own troll the first thing you will notice is that all your new posts now automatically get a down vote; the next thing you will notice is that all your old posts will be resurrected with new down votes. I gotta tell ya; it's nice to know someone cares.

I mean, what better way is there for a stranger, one who is obviously to awed by your awesome literary prowess and too shy to come out and ever tell you who he really is, to let you know he is taking the time to read every post and make his little opinion heard. That is truly someone whose life I have touched! (and not in that usual way where the waitress slaps me)

And so I say ….. YAAAAAY!! My TROLL IS BACK!! I lost him for a while but he is such a determined little bugger that he never quit! And I say thank you, little wonder troll, for all the warmth and joy you bring to my life each and every time I get a down vote; I feel ya bro! Keep up that good work, and know I will never stop posting and put you out of a job!

You go baby!

Had a regular forum user go off on me in-game last weekend. Didnt say a word to them, but ofc they recognized me from the forum; and had to go on some crazy rant. Was entertaining for a few seconds to say the least. It's the risk you take for posting in the public.

At least they care enough to send their very best (sad though that may be).

I'd love to tell you I know what that meant; I'd love to tell you I was dating Ariana Grande; both would be just lies.

By acknowledging them you are feeding them. Soon they will find out you actually care.

It's all in your perception really. 

I tend to look at frowny faces and boring faces and what not as a "message received, over".   And smiley faces and what not are high fives and attaboys.   You just gotta roll with it.  It's the internet.

Sung no doubt to Elton John's little diddy...

You'd think the forum managers would put a time limit for necros just to neg them.

I've never had a downvote. ever.

even when I tried to start some troll threads, I got upvotes. in fact, the more I try to troll, even when I name and shame, the more people vote funny or cool.

I am insanely jealous, and irrational most of the time. I don't think about anybody but me, and even then don't enjoy the sycophant's positive ++ how cool response to my blistering sarcasm and pointed irony.

I need help. what can I do? how do I do it? you would think I would be good at butt hurting people, all my ex's say so! butt not one here.

sadly, the wannabe troll.

All you have to do is say you like DDs and the down votes will come.  Oh, using data seems to work too.  Good luck.
