    1. but to lay traps for producers, for a patentee can sue for infringement even if it doesn't make the product that it holds a patent on.

      Not always a "bad guy" story. Let's say a brilliant but poor woman dreams up a wildly effective design for a rocket engine after years of research. She wisely patents it and tries to get the attention of someone in the space industry. Until she finds a partner (which generally means negotiating a mutually acceptable price for the fruits of her labor), she is a "troll."

    1. Hannibal Barca il y a 1 semaine • @Novum Consilium II V II vous avez tellement raison vive le socialisme et l'autoritarisme. Franchement, les élections, c'est juste les pays décadent capitalistes qui le font. Nous devrions plutôt obligé le peuple a avoir un dictature. Merci, vive les extrémistes! 🙃

    2. Hannibal Barca il y a 7 heures • @Cybermiaou Bien sûr! Tu as à 300% raison! Par exemple l'uruguay est beaucoup plus instable et pauvre que la bolivie et le Venezuela et tout cela parce que ce sont des extremistes démocratiques et pluralistes! Rendez vous compte! MAIS OÙ VA LE MONDE???? Le canada et les pays démocratique sont des impérialiste occidentaux qui tue les populations depuis toujours mais les médias et le gouvernement nous le cache. (Ce sont des franc-maçon) 🙃

    1. I have every reason to believe that the majority of trolls on the English-speaking web are, like Violentacrez, white, male and somewhat privileged. Not because I have personally counted all the trolls on the English-speaking web, but because trolls perform these characteristics. They enact gendered dominance ("your resistance only makes my penis harder," a popular trolling refrain, speaks volumes). They universalize their own assumptions and ethical imperatives (for example the assertion that nothing on the Internet should be taken seriously). They have enough free time to sink hours and hours into their online exploits, and have access to the necessary technologies to do so. I am entirely comfortable asserting these basic symbolic demographics.
    2. In addition to acknowledging the wide variety of trolling behaviors, it is just as important to note that simply saying nasty things online does not make someone a subcultural troll, nor does engaging in "good faith" (for lack of a better term) racism or sexism or homophobia. Not necessarily, anyway. Trolling in the subcultural sense may be afoot in these instances, but maybe not, immediately complicating the impulse to declare every aggressive or otherwise unsavory online behavior an act of trolling -- an impulse regularly exercised by those in the mainstream media.
