  •  When is a troll a troll? (2+ / 0-)

    Can a typically non-troll make a trollish statement worthy of a HR?  That is obviously a "yes."  But does that make them a permanent troll, or does that make them troll-for-a-day?

    I kind of believe that the answer to incorrect speech is more speech that will correct the record.  In this case, I think there are enough people correcting the statement.

    •  I also think that for criticism of public figures (4+ / 0-)

      a certain amount of opinionated, angry speech is acceptable. Warren Buffett has a thick skin, he can handle slings and arrows from the public. Also, I can sympathize with a general non-sympathy for rich people, LOL. That's why I thought the comment was worth discussing but not at all worth hide-rating.

      Personally, I think a troll is evidenced by being mean to other posters. This one clearly is not such.
