Okay, so I have been wondering this for a really long time. Why do people keep answering posters whose writing style is clearly trollish? There is one long thread going on right now in which the OP is not even typing in actual paragraphs, but in verses like a song and repeats the same thing over and over in response to other’s points.
And then there are the folks who type really bad English as in, “I need no church cuz I luv Jaysus. He dieded for mai sens and an I be forgiven and need no confaysion. Imma keep my wife and my mistress and thats okay because I be a forgiven cuz I luv Jeesus.” (I think I might just hurt myself typing like this).
I know people will say that some posters might not be native English speakers. Most of my family are not native English speakers and, what I have noticed is that, if they make a mistake, they make the same mistake consistently instead of butchering the same word or grammatical point several different ways in the same paragraph. For example, my mom aways texts me “I will be dare soon” because she cannot pronounce the “th” sound. Same mistake, all the time. So, when I see a post that makes the same mistakes in different ways in addition to mixing in a lot of cutsie text slang and not even using actual paragraphs, I am inclined to think it is a troll and leave it. But, I see that these threads get really wrong and I am wondering, what are people actually seeing?
Now, I do make exception when is comes to people who overuse ellipsis because there was an old poster back in the old forum who used them every few words. He said he was dyslexic, so I figured that is why, although, I did try researching if there were typing patterens typical of dyslexics and people with other conditions, to no avail. If there is someone out there who knows, do tell, for I am interested.
