What Barry does and calls "pushing buttons" not only fits your own definition of trolling, he himself describes it as an attempt to elicit angry responses. And it's been very well documented that the posts are "duplicitous."
Nor, of course, is hhe Slate report "duplicitous" in any sense. > Again, dingbat, "pushing buttons" is the term Barry uses to characterize > what he does. Is he slandering himself, do you think? Barry never equated someone being a "troll" with someone posting a message and "pushing someone's buttons"- that's a fib you made up, dingbat. A person who sends duplicitous messages to get angry responses is a troll - like the Slate report you just posted. Go figure. >>
