    Trolls come on to websites such as this one, and try and start arguments, and chaos.

    They start "flame wars" and try and get everyone fired up and involved.

    AND.....another little techie term, is a "Sock Puppet" - and that, my friends, is a troll who gets banned, and comes back under another new identity. See one of them here once! ;) :)

    I have to say I have learnt something also.
    Why are some people so twisted. I mean how can you get off causing arguements and insulting people.
    I like the old saying, "If you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all"!

    Let's hope we don't see too much of it again anytime soon.:) We are constantly monitoring though so that the site can have a welcoming and happy atmosphere for all of us and hopefully not too many trolls.
