It's not fanaticism, but rather it's just a logical progression from point A (where we are now) to point B (where we will be if we continue down this path).
Sounds like you already drank the kool-aid, why not take it to the next level?
The vchip is the mark of the beast the anti-christ...utilize your religious rights in order to stem it!
Sounds like you are trolling this morning.[/quote]
The most essential part of trolling is convincing your victim that either a) truly believe in what you are saying, no matter how outrageous, or b) give your victim malicious instructions, under the guise of help. Trolling requires decieving; any trolling that doesn't involve decieving someone isn't trolling at all. As such, your victim must not know that you are trolling; if he does, you are an unsuccesful troll.
Signs that your trolling is unsuccesful:
*Your victim identifying you as a troll.
*Identifying yourself as a troll.
*Your efforts being ignored.
*Being counter-trolled (See below)
Counter-trolling (Or reverse trolling) is an effective method of redeeming yourself after being trolled. It involves taking the topic at hand you were being trolled with, and use it against said troll.
I don;t fit this bill in my opinion...however I do find some others may!
