Hello users, I'm posting this for those of you who like to deal with that troll; and if they actually are a troll. Here are some ways to tell;
Generally trolls follow one or more of these guidelines; 
- Pithy put-downs
- Name-calling and insults
- try to negate an opinion by alleging negatives about the person supporting it
- Impugning other's motives
- Emotional rants
- Bullying and harassment
- Completely off-topic posts
- Posting inaccurate "facts"
- Though there are younger users on here, trolls don't generally use capitals or proper spelling
- Going on and on sbout same topic
-  Pretending to be "stupid" (asking lots of questions they most likely know answers to)
- asking lots of questions
- making themselves the main topic
- entitlement, believe everything should be free or other nonsense along that line
- lack of first-hand knowledge
- perfect information (such as long statements or announcing every detail on things they did)
- No matter what's done - it's never enough
- Restarting topics all ready started or made
- low activity with sudden spurts of activity


Before reporting a user 
 
Make sure you're dealing with a troll  before reporting. Sometimes a troll may just be a very stressed out person. Avoid getting heated yourself and try to ask kind questions or make kind suggestions. 

Troll behavior directed at you will usually stop if you don't add fuel for them to play with, a troll's goal is to make users angry, and by responding to their posts, you are "feeding the troll". Leave them be because they're looking for attention. Don't insult, instigate or join them because that's what they want! Please try both reporting and ignoring them(right click and block or raise privacy in settings) if further abuse continues.  

Don't say you're leaving or reporting the user because they will believe they're winning. Also let others know about the troll (preferably mods) to prevent furthers being trolls. 


Keep in mind arguing or communicating with the troll may get you in trouble! 

if you see a gibberish username or profile - report because chances are they're a troll. Most users spend time thinking about a username.
