it just seems pretty immature to me.

most people dont want swastikas in their shared art space thing. responding to that desire by drawing swastikas... well, at the heart of it, that's all that is. you can attribute it to censorship or democracy or whatever, but it's just doing something most people don't want for the sake of itself.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

I understand jokingly doing something to annoy, say, a close friend, but the end goal of that is usually to make both people laugh and it's all in good fun. If that counts as trolling, or if like a "ha-ha i got you" prank counts as trolling, then I get that and it's fine, but I just sort of don't understand the point of being just very mean-spirited and then kind of acting like you're above it and above the consequences above it because it's all a joke to you and everyone else is just too serious or something. I see it as like, just being annoying or inflammatory just for the sake of itself.

Pat: Everyone needs to stop being jerks and also interact with media more responsibly.

Also Pat: Hey cousin, lets go trolling!
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

It is a delayed April fool.

Clever.

This is exactly correct. I don't see it as a problem. I can do both.

Buy why? There's a time and a place for both, you can do both.

But the time and place is apparently decided based on factors that are a mystery to everyone else so one just appears wildly inconsistent

Trolling is great when you are just fed up with ****.

At first you are on this crusade to make the world a good place. But then you realise the world is doomed and it doesn't matter what you do.

So you just decide to wreak some havoc and **** it all.

Because at least that causes a reaction.

Unlike all the good and valuable things you have tried to do.

Nope you're just undoing anything good you did do. You're putting other people in a ****ty mood and justifying their own ****ty behaviour.

Every small malicious act makes the world a slightly worse place. Also doing some good stuff doesn't entitle you to be a petty little bitch the other 80% of the time, get over yourself. Look, people make mistakes and nobody is perfect, but intentionally baiting people is lame.
