The term troll, as used in dpreview forums, simply means someone with whom you do not agree.

It is a childish, immature term, akin to "bully," in its original meaning or intended usage.

It's like one kid in the playground saying to another in a whiny voice, "You're a bully!"

So? Is that going to change anything?

If you have to identify someone as a bully (meaning you don't know how to handle them) you have already lost the game.

This just happens to be the second thread of yours that I have opened and it appears that you are trying to draw attention to yourself. Chasing up some website hits, perhaps?

There is a place for Off Topic threads...
