And please Tehdocta, can you explain why he is trolling? You know, to help someone with an iq of nothing (aka me)?
Firstly, please, can you get my nick right, this is not the first time you have misspelt it, I am beginning to think it is deliberate.
From the ever reliable Wikipedia, the definition of an internet troll is: "In Internet slang
, a troll
) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[size=1][/size]extraneous
, or off-topic
messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup
, forum, chat room
, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional
or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion,[size=1][/size]
often for their own amusement."Myrtone
fits this perfectly, by constantly posting personal opinions which have been constantly and repeatedly shown, by multiple posters, to be wrong, but then continues to argue his position despite having been categorically proven to be wrong.
Examples where Myrtone
has continued to argue (well beyond the point where they have been well and truly shot down in flames) include: DD trains for Melbourne; Bypass of the Upfield line to avoid Royal Park; The decision to have a different rolling stock/operational regime for the NWRL in Sydney; His constant argument that there should only be one railway station per suburb, whilst totally disregarding the individual traffic demands of each suburb which might create the need for multiple stations; That level crossings do not reduce line capacity on rail corridors (unless there are external political pressures, which exist on the Dandenong line, but not out west, where he is arguing about at the moment).
There may be others which I haven't seen. Each and every one of these arguments has been shot down, by multiple posters (at least five or six on each and every occasion) with totally sound and rational arguments, yet Myrtone
keeps coming back and arguing his point, totally ignoring the arguments that have been put in front of them.
That is arguing for no other reason than to argue, and that fits the definition of trolling.
