    Not necessarily - they could be looking for verification, of their perceived answer....

    Just like you are looking for others to agree with you.......................

    Or when they ask a very newbie question, then argue with everyone that gives them good answers.

    That's the response I love. It makes the thread interesting. Justify, justify, justify. At all costs, justify.

    you know a post is a troll when it is posted a A.Troll....duh.
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    I know a troll WHEN THEY ASK QUESTIONS IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS! THEN, THEY GET OFFENDED WHEN PEOPLE TELL THEM TO HIT THEIR "CAPS LOCK" KEY.

    ...And how can we forget the ones that refer to new members such commonalities as n00b, newb, newbie, noob, noobie, squid, nooby, etc.?

    Should we forget the member that has 5000 posts, spots a new member, and then all of a sudden finds the need to "dominate" him/her and try to make examples out of them by challenging everything they say?

    Hit the cap locks key! Great idea. Thanks, that saves so much time.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    Okay, you told me to hit the "Caps" key. Now, this is where I'm supposed to insult you, your mom, your dad, tell you how I'm going to beat you up if I ever meet you, and then follow up by "email bombing" you.

    Secret trolls are OK. You know - don't ask, don't tell.
