Trolls

No not the film but Internet trolls

Wikipedia gives the definition In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting quarrels or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response

I made a posting in a forum on Facebook this morning and within minutes I was being condemned the posting was asking why a car park was half closed yesterday when there was a big venue in town. Within minutes someone condemned me for arriving late at the concert and how did I expect to find a parking space (For their information my husband was working till 12midday and we couldn’t get there before 12.30, it started at midday BUT I did get a parking space my post wasn’t about that )

Then another troll said well if you could get there for 12.30 when working till midday why didn’t  you walk ( well again for information we are 1 and a half miles away and I am disabled )

What do they get out of it? in fairness, the 2nd troll did apologise when I said I was disabled BUT for goodness sake just think before you start upsetting people. I have actually felt upset about this all day now and it’s a feeling I could do without when I’m not well
