Journal Journal: Trolling for dollars!

Lately there has been born a new type of troll..This kind of troll, does his nasty work in the background..He posts stuff that gets modded "funny" or "insightful" but when he gets moderator access he abuses his power -that is, he'll mod someone down as a troll simply because he *disagrees* with a post regardless of wether it's an actual troll comment or not.
I first realized this today when I made several comments that disagreed with other posters..They were not rude, but the parent comment was modded Troll and then when someone replied to my comment and I replied back my next reply was *also* modded Troll and I didn't say anything mean at all! A Backyard Troll on a mission...
