It’s currently holiday time for us UCT students & I’ve been making the most of the vac working, being productive & just generally making good use of the time. Jokes. That’s a complete lie, what kind of student is actually productive during vac?!
What I’ve really been doing is spending my time online, gaming & this is what led me to here. Writing an online plea to trolls. For those of you that don’t know, a troll is a human being who’s sole purpose, presumably, is to make everyone around them miserable in every way possible. You might have seen it on the ever popular (ashamedly so) 9gag posts where people just insult others unnecessarily, miss the point on purpose, excessively rude etc.
Well, in online gaming, they’re a lot more potent. Playing a game called League of Legends (don’t play it, it’s addictive & your marks will suffer), they are in abundance. As the game has over 30 million users, it’s inevitable that you come across them. Trolls cannot be reasoned with, resort to bad spelling & expletives as a comeback to logic & have no sympathy whatsoever.
“stfu n00b” “i am pro, so !?#^ you !@? your muthr n00b” “u mad bro?” “ur mom is ugly” – all common phrases thrown out by trolls. My faith in humanity constantly faces a dip when I come across them. Where’s the fun in making a game unbearable & unenjoyably for others?
So this is a plea to all the trolls out there. Stop it. If your girlfriend/boyfriend broke up with you, go talk to your parents, they have wisdom that will help you through it all. If there’s a school bully that’s making your life miserable, speak to a teacher or your parents about it & get help. If you hate people, join the club, we express it in more classy & productive ways.
Alas, I can already hear what trolls would be saying if they read this…
“LOL n00b, cry more” “hahahahaha u suk u suk hahahaha”
