The Joy of Triggering

By someone else following x   2016 Oct 2, 12:03pm 11,228 views   56 comments   watch   nsfw   quote     share    


Pepe's got me thinking. It's just so much fun to drive easily triggered fools to insanity (any beyond!) by calmly saying or implying something just over the edge of PC-acceptability.

What are the ingredients for world-class trolling? How can I make patrick.net a center for exchange of knowledge in this delicious technique and technology?

A few thoughts:

* The trolling has to be done with an entirely straight face. The victim has to think you're serious.
* The remark has to be somewhat ambiguous, so that you have plausible deniability and can claim the victim simply misunderstood.
* The victim must respond far out of proportion, nicely illustrating their hyper-sensitive intolerant neuroticism.

Hugh Mungus was clearly an expert.

it depends on the area. When I lived in LA, I went on a camping trip and someone said they had just bought a purebred puppy from a dealer. One lady in the group went nuts and compared that to the nazi slaughter of jews-apparently if you don't "rescue" some mutt from the shelter-you are a nazi!!

Not if you're wearing a mask, say a Trump mask.

Listen to Federal Reserve chairmen speak. They have mastered this. It's called Fedspeak.

Hugh Mungus was clearly an expert.

Hugh Mungus wasn't an expert or even a troll. He saw a woman acting neurotically towards him for being interviewed and saying something positive about policing. He attempted to diffuse the situation with humor by calling himself Hugh Mungus, a reference to how fat he was. He was thinking that some self-deprecating humor would have shown this woman that he also is a human being and a nice person. He was shocked -- and you can tell that by the look on his face -- when the bitch went ballistic. This was not what he wanted and then he just wanted to leave as quickly as possible.

If your looking at CIC's keyboard, that white stuff ain't foam, but it did come from his mouth, at least after its last pit stop.

Just thought I'd share some further steps that may be applicable for a successful trolling. Apply at your own risk.

Patrick says

* The trolling has to be done with an entirely straight face. The victim has to think you're serious.

Then follow up with: What do you mean? I AM being serious! And *I* am the victim here!

* The remark has to be somewhat ambiguous, so that you have plausible deniability and can claim the victim simply misunderstood.

Follow up: I can't BELIEVE you would stereotype me like that!

* The victim must respond far out of proportion, nicely illustrating their hyper-sensitive intolerant neuroticism.

Follow up: Uh, hello? Aren't you forgetting something? Knock, knock! -Who's there? The VICTIM is here!

I triggered Dan a few too many times with impeccable logic vs. his quasi-scientific emotional rants. Which is why he put me on ignore. Does that mean I won at trolling him?

It was also enjoyable to troll Yesynot over the Orlando shooter. I called him a homophobe because he was saying the only reason the shooter committed the crime was because he was gay. That was fun to turn the tables. He got super concerned and confused about it all😛

Technical problem, Patrick:

I posted the above (in other words, I was logged in). Then I clicked on the backlink to the Hugh Mungus thread, and suddenly I was no longer logged in. That seems strange, have not seen that before.

UPDATE: NEVER MIND, it was due to using COOKIESWAP extension. I had swapped the cookies but somehow I stayed authorized on this page (backend only checks when loading a new/different page?)

Don't get your panties in a bunch, CIC. I have no problem taking a minute to make trolls look the fools they are. I find it enjoyable to publicly humiliate you. Besides, there is a purpose to ridiculing the village idiots. It makes the position less appealing to future fools.

But hey, if you trolls want to live in a fantasy world in which you believe you actually have an impact on other people's lives, who am I to deny you the one feeble joy in your life. You guys are always good for a laugh anyway. Plus whenever conservatives try to take the moral high ground, we can always point to you as examples of why conservatives are poor excuses for human beings. So keep it up, suckers!

Lie all you want. The entire history of my posts demonstrate clearly that I welcome, even seek, constructive debate of all ideas I have. The fact that you say otherwise indicates how dishonest you are.

My entire philosophy is that everything is questionable and that the truth becomes more apparent with questioning.

Losers like you simply don't like that you cannot argue on an adult level with facts and evidence. You are incapable of attacking arguments, which is why you always resort to attacking the messenger while ignoring the message.

But hey, prove me wrong. Show me a single argument made against anything I ever said that I refused to address. You can't do that.

In the war of ideas, in our system, all are allowed a voice and democratically we choose to listen to what has value. Only superior ideas will remain, and it absolutely matters who the messenger is.

I don't think you have to do anything special... Some people just get a kick out of triggering others. It comes naturally to them, and they will serve this purpose well without you having to lift a finger.

Personally, I don't actually enjoy upsetting people. So, I tend to pull out of the conversation if I think that a person is taking things too seriously... I just don't see the point. 1) I don't really need to be validated as "right" by people I don't know; 2) you never know what is going through another person's head, so why risk it?

The second reason is an important one, to me. You just don't really know the person you are talking to on this forum. Because it's not an in-person conversation, there are a lot of cues that you just cannot benefit from. Is the person on the edge? Is the person in a bad place? Is the person a potential psychopath? I would hate to think that I ever wrote something that turned out to be the final straw before the person took his own life or went off the rails and punched his kid, or something... Or created my own personal stalker. I'm not saying that anyone would do anything like that... but that's the point. You just never know. So, I try not to go out of my way to push people too far... and if I think that someone is taking it too seriously, I'd rather disengage than risk that I'm the one who pushed a person over the edge.

The merit of an idea has nothing to do with who presents it. Even a broken clock can be right some of the time.

Sure, we tend to ignore what idiots like CIC say, but we dismiss CIC because he constantly spouts nonsense. We know it's nonsense, not because CIC said it, but because the content is clearly contradicted by reality.

Also, truth is not a democracy. It is not the number of people who accept an idea that makes it credible. It is the amount and quality of evidence that gives merit to an idea.

However, I do agree that all ideas should be subject to the crucible of testing and verifying.

If one were to look up loser in a dictionary, CIC's fat ass would be the illustration. Here's a guy who
1. Begged to meet up with me in real life and then chicken-shitted out of it three times.
2. Hides in NJ and refuses to give his real address even though he "invited me to his house". How can I show up at his house, or rather bathroom stop, if he keeps the address secret? Obviously he had no intention of meeting up.
3. Doesn't realize that solar powered wireless access points can work at night because of #rechargeableBatteriesDumbass.

This guy is a real idiot and a coward. And he's had sex with more goats than an ISIS recruit.


When not trolling, CIC likes to pray to Allah with his lover.

Honey, the only emotion I'm experience right now is laughter as I laugh my ass off at how easy it is to goat, pun intended, you.

Just because people make fun of you, doesn't mean they are the ones with emotional control issues. You simply deserve ridicule. If laughing at a fool is being triggered, then you certainly do trigger me every day. So keep pulling my trigger and I'll keep squirting on your face. Just pull a bit faster...

Consensus can be wrong. A drug doesn't cure cancer simply because lots of people say it does. The proof is whether or not it actually works. Even medicine ultimately has to yield to the scientific method.

No. Science is not a democracy. Is it any surprise the biggest fools are the ones making these mistakes?

Science is based on a consensus of observation and experiment, not a consensus of people. It's when all the experiments agree and produce the same result that you have a scientific consensus.

This is because you are a girl. Men have no such qualms, and in fact probably would take great joy over sending some wussy man over the edge merely by uttering a few phrases. In fact we're about to find out which accounts are girls pretending to be boys as surely they will come to argue about why not all men are as juvenile in their thoughts as I am.
