I'm not sure how to explain this, but I truly don't think that posters who are not trolls, are in much danger of being mistaken for trolls.
It's not just
the types of stories, or just
inconsistencies in timelines, or just
the fact that details get changed from one thread to another. It's nearly always a combination of those types of things, plus posting style, plus a love of drama that shows through. And often, trolls don't interact normally with other posters because they're usually narcissistic, and are only interested in threads in which they
are the centre of attention.
Not that I'm any kind of troll expert, these are just my own observations. Poirot
, FWIW, I can't imagine anyone mistaking you for a troll.
Please don't feel you have to change anything. I hate to think that this thread would make anyone feel bad because of what some of us have posted in it.
ETA: elephantschild, I think we're trying to say the same thing. I didn't do too well at it, either!
