Troll ethic forbids trolling on the Trolly Awards thread.  This is a place to discuss your trollcomplishments for the past year and select your favorites.  Many great trolls will enter.  One will win.

Now you'd of course expect me to nominate myself, but, c'mon, I've been winning troll awards since the days of dial-up BBS'es and Usenet.  I've done some good work in 2010 in places as diverse as programming forums, Muslim forums, conspiracy forums, vegan forums, Russian-language political forums, etc, but I think it's time to give someone else a chance...

I nominate...  El Neil !!!

Originally the term "troll" was just a mindless derogatory cliche for someone you don't like, like the term "witch" in the middle ages.  Then I started to use the word in a humorous self-deprecating manner, because I spend a lot of time arguing on socialist forums, where they obviously call all libertarians "trolls", and because I look like a mythological troll-like creature in real life.  (Really, I do.  Most pictures of trolls you see are drawn from my likeness.)  The concept then evolved further and melded with my concept of a heroic "Truther" who seeks to fill all gaps of knowledge, particularly the ones that are the most politically inconvenient.  Also similar is the concept of a social "gadfly" exemplified by Socrates - another derogatory term turned on its head.

And for the purposes of this thread, it's whoever is nominated and then gets the most votes.

The mormon chat trolling cracks me up everytime.

Edit: Also, trolling the PoliceOne facebook page is a top notch good time. But they banned me this week :(

To troll in a trollmination, you should provide a link to the trollastric troll-event, and perhaps some top trolly quotes.

It would be nice if the real identity of the nominee was known, because I'd just love to spend a few hundred dollars on a gag custom "award" statuette to ship to the winner, but there's a fine line between humor and harassment, so I probably shouldn't.  Maybe next year we'll do this proper, with a real awards ceremony on YouTube.   :lol:
