Also, doesn't he have his own forum to post on?

He/she/whoever it is is not trolling though.

oh well, he/she said to be Graham, so I suppose pretending to be someone else is trolling or am I wrong?

Well I think people who use the internet to be someone else or think they can be a loudmouth (right name not sure) because they face no consequences are really sad people and maybe don't have many real friends in real life

I'm just imagining how obvious it would be if someone signed up and pretended to be Damon. :lol:

Not in terms of how unlikely it would be but rather the idea of him personally ever using a message board. I just can't imagine it.

It's not doing any harm though. User's not being abusive or bullying anyone, it's just a bit of fun in any case, whether he's Graham or not.

Agreed. Tweedz wasn't. But sadly other members on the official forum were doing some of this below...

"Question: What Is 'Trolling'?

Answer: Internet 'trolling' is the anti-social act of causing of interpersonal conflict and shock-value controversy online. Named for the wicked troll creatures of children's tales, trolling is purposely sowing hatred, bigotry, racism, misogyny, or just simple bickering between others. Trolls themselves are emotionally-immature users who thrive in any environment where they are allowed to make public comments, like blog sites, news sites, discussion forums, and game chat."

I was referring to Westway when I posted that sign, but I do think someone pretending to be someone else, especially if that person is famous, is a no-no.

I remember Westway being annoying on the official Forum. Was he banned or something? Can't remember.

Anyway... trolls are after one thing: attention. So the worst people can do to them is to ignore them. Eventually they get bored.

By the time he reached his peak (BASED GOD), I was just lurking, having been banned myself at that point (not for being a troll, but for not having a filter and thinking that was fine).
