People who troll online just don't have big enough balls to troll in real life.

Do you troll in real life? On the internet it will get an IP ban at max. In real life you can lose quite a few important things. So no, I don't think your statement is true. It's idiotic to troll in real life. But I met those. Nobody is free from the sin of trolling on the net. Just seat down, relax and do some trolling every once in a while. It serves the purpose to heat up some cold and pointless discussions, because people don't want to talk about certain things, let's say... about cancer... or how they think they are going to die.
