Yeah, most trolls are rather obvious and dull very fast, they are almost standardized at this point. Even if it had a valid point or two, trolls always fall in a same pattern of devolving into ad homenim arguments, arguing in bad faith, biggotted slurs (i.e Eastern Europeans only mod for Fallout 1/2 because they can't afford modern hardware) and not bothering to concede the point (especially if the point was debunked or proven wrongly) for the sake of the discussion. EDIT: The fact that it claimed that it won arguments by saying that being labelled a troll equated to a concession is another clear cut sign. It's partially why I didn't bother. No point dealing with a cookie-cutter troll. Extraordinary trolls like Dragonborn were after my time too (I'm a rather young user). Mfkndggrfall is one close to prominence with how persistent it was even when its ship was sinking with debunked points and how we convinced it to signing up at RPGCodex (I was around for it's debacle).
