If "he" means me, I am not a troll.  A troll is someone who doesn't believe
what he writes, and writes it solely to provoke.  I believe what I write,
and I'm not writing to provoke, but to discuss and to warn.

I have coined the words "trollhunt" and "trollhunter."  Compare "witch hunt"
and "witch hunter."  A trollhunter is a person who, faced with opinions
counter to his own, takes the intellectually lazy way out of calling the
opponent a troll.  A trollhunt is many snivelling trollhunters banding
together to shut down dissenting viewpoints.

20% of the world is real.
80% is gobbledygook we make up inside our own heads.
