    hi DGP

    I think many trolls are kids who have just learned they can put rude words on the internet. One of my favourite forums -though recently re-configured used to have a rating system that set all the troll posts to -1 and they didn't show up in a default listing of the forum posts unless you set a flag to show all comments...

    And a lot of it was scary and you learned really quickly to never ever click on a link.

    I know some of my male friends love to troll. They go on sites that IMO are just asking for it. (Google vampire chat city)

    I think it's really interesting that most trolls tend to be male.

    Sorry. I meant to say most trolls I know in real life. Unfortunately, at my age quite a few people think it's pretty funny.

    Yeah, I know. They think a lot of things are funny that aren't. Like the little bastard who stole my car and ram-raided a drug shop and put me through hell, he thought it was funny. Know who he is and he's scarpered from Tassie ATM.

    He'll be back one day, and when he's lying in a gutter with a bullet in him, then I'll see the funny side. Maybe.

    I'm pretty impressed you still are able to see my generation in a good light.

    My son is 14 Dis. I talk with his friends wherever we go. They are most respectful. There are good and bad people of all ages.

    Those kids who are stupid delinquents, well, too often i look at their parents and I don't need to ask the question why. My son is very particular about who he associates with, so the ones I see are worth being proud of.

    Fair enough point DA. I just find that a lot of older people tend to put their 'eggs all in one basket' so to speak if they have a nasty experience with a teenager.

    I'm the same. My mum only hates one of my mates-but that's another story.

    It says a lot about you as a person that you can relate so well to teenagers. (And I mean that in a good way. )

    I agree, many older people do that, which is a shame, because they are missing out on seeing the magic wonderful side of the young. But you will often find those ppl are ones who also turn out bitter and lonely.

    I HAVE to be able to relate to teenagers, Dis. If I couldn't, then how could I truly know and understand my own son?

    I know, that's why I think you must be a fantastic mother. I have some mates and their mums...Jeez I'd be such a liar and a sneak if they were my parent. Even my mum says so. It's like they just 'forgot' being a teenager, or they take out how frustrating their upbringing was by treating their kid exactly the same way.
