Neologism[edit]

This neologism is terrible, and the concept goes way further back. I suggest a move to "professional troll" or similar - David Gerard (talk) 17:16, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

It's a strange article/listicle too. I don't think the arbitrary "noticeable"/"insignificant" division is useful. I suggest merging into one list, or else splitting it thematically (politicians, pundits, etc). I can think of a few additions (Fred Phelps & the WBC, Andy Martin, TheAmazingAtheist, maybe Julie Burchill). Not sure that Richard Dawkins belongs on there: much as I disagree with a lot of things he's said in recent years, there's very little of it I would consider trolling.

And it's pretty clear Dawkins doesn't do this for a living - David Gerard (talk) 17:33, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
I've culled the shitty "anyone I don't like" list. If anyone wants to add people to it while it's at "proll", find people who've citably been labeled one by Baxter - David Gerard (talk) 20:45, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
