Everyone trolls. There is no exception.

I believe you are thinking of masturbation.

OMG. An unintentional troll. Ban it, ban it, ban it. ;)

Claiming someone is an unintentional troll is just an excuse for censorship. Thinking up complex excuses for doing what you want means you're feeling guilty about it and want to shift the blame to someone else.

Mental masturbation ftw!

Yeah! It feels good to ejaculate your words into someones face. Even if it is a totally stupid subject, it can be very satisfying. The trick is that yourself shouldnt be pissed off about the excrements that other people might leave in a forum.

Means: dont get yourself offended about someone who tries to measure his e-peen. If you do, you got the smaller one.
