> When I obviously know for myself I am not.
This is exactly what a troll would say :-) Not calling you one though, haven't seen enough of your posts to judge either way... talking about trolls in general.
> It is just way to overused to get out of having discussions
It seems clear to me that "billi" opted out of the discussion first, and that those reasonable-sounding questions were only a thinly veiled excuse to start spouting shit uncorroborated by evidence. The constant refrain of "everyone knows that ___" was one very obvious signal.
> These days anyone who you disagree with is a troll
Read the threads by our esteemed researchers below? Ianmcphail and skyestephens show that it is still quite possible to have a respectful conversation in spite of disagreement.
Ethan Edwards gets a lot of hate for having views diametrically opposed to most of the board, but he is not a troll, we can actually have substantive conversation with him about actual issues.
"billi" on the other hand... well, you know what I think.
Aside from everything else I've pointed out, fixating on relatively trivial issues like vulgar language is another hallmark of a troll.
BTW don't let yourself be baited in the other thread, the only way to deal with such users is to treat it like a joke.
