Top Ten Tips for Trolling Online

Trolling is like a sport. You must learn it well to win it. Here are some suggestions.
The Top Ten
1 Claim that Evil Things are Fine

Go to videos about tragic or taboo things, like animal torture, rape, or incest, and post a comment like, "Why is everybody so worked up? I think it's perfectly fine." Add fake anecdotes about how you have done things like it in the past. This may be hard if you are not a horrible person.

2 Side with the Minority

Find videos with topics that many people feel very strongly about, such as religion, and choose to side with the minority, whether you truly feel that way or not. Defend your opinion as if it's your newborn child, using as much completely incorrect information as possible. Make sure you bash the opposing view as much as possible.

3 Call Alternative Music Listeners Stereotypical

Find music videos for alternative types of music, and assume that every single viewer other than you is the stereotypical listener to whatever genre or music it is, and bash them like there's no tomorrow. For example, if you were to go to a Hawthorne Heights video, make a point of calling all fans of the band "emo," and branch out from there. Also, make sure to repeatedly state how horrible the band or artist is. People tend to get their panties in quite a bunch when you do this.

4 Be Exceptionally Vulgar

Including an extreme amount of vulgar language and insults aimed at particular ethnic groups can either just fan the flames and produce even more trolling success, or make people dismiss you as not being worth it.

5 Be Creative

If nobody responds to your trolling attempts, it is most likely because people have seen your approach several times before. For example, hundreds, possibly thousands of losers have attempted to troll YouTube by going to a My Chemical Romance video and ranting about how all members of the band are homosexual. While there is still the occasional war between My Chemical Romance fans who would defend the band with everything they've got and trolls, anybody that has looked through more than five pages of comments for any one of their videos on YouTube will see that most insults of this sort are ignored. This is simply because fans have seen comments like them a million times and have accepted that the opinion is widely shared. What I'm saying is, try to be a bit more creative.

6 Use Multiple Accounts

You're going to need lots of different accounts on each of the various sites and games you plan on trolling. Usually, a site will not let you start a new account with an email that is registered to a different account, so you'll need an email for each account that you create on a site.

7 Humor Helps Trolling

If you actually have the belief or opinion that you are centering your trolling around, being funny should not be hard. In my opinion, using larger vocabulary just makes things funnier. I don't know if other people feel that way, and I don't know why I do, but it does. Sometimes, a funny idea can be made unfunny because you write it in a way that is obnoxious or makes you sound ignorant. Humor can be a very useful weapon for a troll.

8 Don't Become a Trollee

On rare occasions, a troll will become a trollee. If signs of this occur, abandon all hope for that trolling attempt, unless you think you are smart enough to get yourself out of it and emerge on top once more. But you most likely are not.

9 Become a Grammar Nazi
10 Say “No U” to Every Argument
The Contenders
11 Be Repetitive
12 Use a VPN
13 Be in Control

Get a high position somewhere (a forum, a friend's website, your own, etc.), wait for it to be noticed, then start being an ass without getting fired.
