Here's one for the masses....I consider myself more of a flamer than a troller. I'll open a thread and either try to read and flame in it first go. If I feel like I can flame it second go I will. If I feel like I cannot/would have to troll it, I'll come back to it when I'm mentally stronger.
This is all theoretical, mostly, I don't care how much better I am than you.
It seems like, in today's day and poster world, you're quality of a poster is defined by your best troll. I don't like to troll people though...I get pissy when I cannot troll a noob (Ask J_ung, he has been trolled for like 5 pages in his "Troll J_ung" thread, I was definitely pissed cause I couldn't troll)
So statistically, you're troll limit is a full two grades over your flame limit. So say my best flame is F5, I should be Trolling T7.
So If I were to compare myself to another poster who is posting T6, would I be a better poster than them (or should I ask their hardest flame?)
Remember, this is all theoretical, I know comparing oneself to another poster is a Faux Pas...
For a while, my best troll and hardest flame were congruent (so I figured maybed I oughta try something harder and increased my hardest troll by a number in 3 goes.)
Oh and my actual limits are not posted above, i was just picking numbers (don't want anyone to get the wrong impression.)
So to quote somebody or other, "LET THE FLAMES FLY!"
