    I'll fess up - I'm totally a bully. I'm over it. But it's usually only when people are absolutely ridiculous and they want to name their kids something like Beaupré Macgillicuddy Starburst Giggles, or when people give absolutely horrendous health advice and pose as some kind of expert and say things like you know that if you put pink, strawberry Jelly Bellies in your hoo-ha three days before you ovulate you'll surely have a girl. I'm going to be rude about it. I'm over it.

    Overall I think people are extremely way too nice on these forums. My husband likes to read over my shoulder and see what I'm posting, and at the end of one of my post he said I should add FOAD. I was like what's that? It's F#ck Off And Die, we use it all the time in forums; there's also DIAF which is Die In A Fire. I've never seen those acronyms on Nameberry, nor STFU. I think we run fairly tepid.



    PS I'm using the voice command on my iPhone, and it totally just autocorrected something to Beaupré which I had to look up and learned it's a place in Québec. I thought that would be a decently weird word name.

    Exactly, excellent point. And with all the Cohen stuff today, it's really not cool to call people racist, anti-Semitic, trolls, or hillbillies when they share a "devil's advocate" viewpoint in a tactful manner. Shutting down a discussion by calling out "troll" is my biggest pet peeve. No one is forcing you to read or comment on a thread. Lets not jump on the "everyone who brings up a controversial viewpoint, especially you non-minorities, is a racist" bandwagon.

    A troll is someone whose only purpose on a forum is to start arguments, it's not an insult, they shouldn't even be there to start with. I call out trolls to stop people wasting their time.

    There are definitely some trolls but how do we ever really know for sure...I prefer to give the benefit of the doubt. It is most definitely an insult when it is not true. Example: someone can call me a "troll" now because they think I'm arguing when I'm really only trying to contribute to a discussion, and that would be insulting. The "arguments" they start may be viewed as decent discussions to have and not a waste of time in other people's opinions.

    You have over a hundred posts. I doubt anyone would call you a troll. O_o
