When it seems you have become a victim of trolling, flamewar and cyberbullying, go through these statements and ask yourself if they describe the nature of relationships and online dialogue in that particular case:
- All your carefully picked arguments can easily be ignored.
- Anything you say can and will be used against you.
- Anything you say can be turned into something else – fixed.
- Do not argue with trolls – it means that they win.
- The harder you try the harder you will fail.
- Everything that can be labeled can be hated.
- The more you hate it the stronger it gets.
- Nothing is to be taken seriously!
- CAPSLOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL
- Nothing is Sacred
- The more beautiful and pure a thing is – the more satisfying it is to corrupt it.

The most striking in very peculair way is actually this: The more you hate it the stronger it gets. Doesn’t it sound familiar?
“The hate is swelling in you now. […] Give in to your anger!”
also trying to get a grip on something like this:
“too long; didn’t read.”
- The inability to accept, understand or pay attention to information when not separated by a header.
- The ability to arbitrarily read 400 small posts but not a long one.
- A sign of ADD or lack of reading capability.
- A very cheap response and an indication of lack of wit.
- 90% of the time: A lie.
- A desperate attempt at a comeback used by people who just can’t think of one.
- Usually used by people who’ve been torn apart verbally but want one last attempt at looking witty.
- A sign that, not only is someone too lazy and stupid to read but, clearly, too lazy and stupid to even type out four words indicating such.
- Collect every “tl,dr” post online, and you’ll have a good estimate of the number of lazy idiots on Earth, who currently have Internet access.
