Trolls And Trolls

Recommended Posts

I noted that the BillyShears "House Prices to Rocket" was moved to the Trolls sub-group.

Now don't get me wrong, but there was a string out about 3 weeks ago, with 'lets all pretend to be bulls' because all the bulls had disappeared and there wasn't enough debate. This string attracted over 2000 hits and a lot of debate.

I also think that Billy did a brilliant job of representing the sincere, serious, dumb*rse mainstream that I have to contend with every day, but was quite straightforward in admitting the ruse in comfortable time.

OK so he hoaxed us, and I was as drawn in as anyone else (ouch - that was my ego :lol: ), but the literary hoax is a fine tradition designed to create conditions for thinking freshly and I think BillyShears achieved this without dragging it out to the point of unneccessary irritation.

I don't really see his string as a trolling exercise, since it seemed to be in the spirit of good fun and genuine engagement and debate rather than to cause hurt hurt and irritation.

Maybe others have a different interpretation.


Ouch, that was moved off topic quickly. Maybe it is someone elses ego as well.
