Trolling – (verb), as it relates to internet, is the deliberate act, (by a Troll – noun or adjective), of making random unsolicited and/or controversial comments on various internet forums with the intent to provoke an emotional knee jerk reaction from unsuspecting readers to engage in a fight or argument 

Trolling on-line forums as described above is actually analogous to the fishing technique of “trolling”, where colorful baits and lures are pulled behind a slow moving boat, often with multiple fishing lines, covering a large bodies of water, such as a large lake or the ocean. The trolling lures attract unsuspecting fish, intriguing them with the way they move through the water, thus enticing these foolish fish to “take the bait”. Not unlike unsuspecting internet victims, once hooked, the fish are reeled in for the catch before they realize they have been duped by the Troll/Fisherman

Now this is a real hoot.  I spent an hour going back and fourth with a fellow poster.  Our conversation started with my posts violating the Hatch Act,  to the links below,  before  gruffstuff even added the topic .Nancy

Trump supporters, even "independent" ones, will accept and even defend anything that trump says or does. ANYTHING.

 

They will never ever "feel silly", only look silly.

Through my  interactions with  Service Personal, they seem to feel no respect from Our Commander and Chief.


My military service was from under Eisenhower through Jimmy Carter.  That included Nixon who had absolutely no respect from those of us in Vietnam.  But it wasn't our job to comment on Presidents, nor could we while associated with the military due to the Hatch Act.   We just did our jobs and let the politicians do their thing, and come election time quietly cast our ballots.   Out of uniform and not associated with the military or government service we could.

 

It appears that “your” military personnel is making comments as members of the Armed Forces.  Therefore they are violating the Hatch Act if your posts are true.   Even now if I was to associate my political opinions with my status and rank as a military retiree it would be a violation of that act.

 

Your posts in these regards has been amusing to this retiree who keeps in frequent contact with the military through various venues.  Neither Facebook nor Twitter has anything to do with it.

 

P.S.  I enjoyed what I was doing which is why I remained in for so long.  The rest of your second post is John Wayne movie stuff.
