What is your view?
Did you just say that to get a bit of attention? Or have I just trolled?What is Trolling? We have a perception of Trolling, we perceive Trolling as bad, but really the motivation of the people that do it is attention seeking, and we all crave attention to various degrees, so in one sense we are all Trolls!
Are you saying that trolling is not right or wrong, and therefore should be legal? Or is JP just trolling others by calling them unsophisticated?Intolerance of others’ views (no matter how ignorant or incoherent they may be) is not simply wrong; in a World where there is no right or wrong, it is worse: it is a sign you are embarrassingly unsophisticated or, possibly, dangerous.
Jon, earlier you mentioned that you never know what a persons childhood was like, you never know what strategies they have developed to protect themselves. You also point to Jordan Peterson's quote in my signature. I think the link is that we are in danger of not talking as in "listening" to others. It is very easy to place someone into a category, and from that category derive a complete understanding of that person, construct reasons why you should not interact with them, why you should dismiss them as irrelevant, mad, unworthy... Only by talking/exchanging to/with people can you you break this. If you banish people, then you also disconnect.Are you saying that trolling is not right or wrong, and therefore should be legal?

Cars harm the environment. Shall we ban those too? When I go for a walk, I crush insects. Those poor blighters! Shall I stay off the grass? I hate harming anything, even trolls.Hmm, yep, trolling should be made illegal as I have never seen a harmless troll.
Are examples of rudeness defined differently between Republicans and Democrats? i.e. is there an objective classification of what is rude or is it always subjective? And if it is subjective, who defines the standard if 50% agree, and 50% disagree?All of us define rude. Usually by example.
