LOVE Thy TROLL.

It was only a matter of time before a Troll finally turned up here on my blog. If you are that rare innocent who knows not what a Troll is, feast your eyes on this Wikipedia definition.

Plain English? Someone who comments mean things just to get a reaction.

There are ways of dealing with Trolls. Some like to engage in a game of One-Up-Manship. This could produce a large amount of heated comments which have nothing to do with the original blog post.

And there are those who say it's best not to feed the Troll...just ignore it and it will go away.

But I say - TROLLS! You are welcome on my blog!

You will be greeted with LOVE!

You will be OVERWHELMED by it!

Until you are rendered harmless.

And cute.

Trolls are people too, right?

So tell me about your Troll stories!


Love Thy Troll and TROLL Kitten t-shirts are now available in my Zazzle shop.

You can make someone else smile by sharing.

  2. awww, I love the kitty. I have never personally had a troll on my blog, but now that you have gotten one you are REALLY in the big time now. *MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA*

  3. A true troll comes back and defends his/her trolliness. This was a coward troll, drops a comment and runs and hides.

    A friend had a troll and I jumped in and had a completely stupid discussion with him, he wanted to debate and I rambled like an idiot. I think his head exploded.

    1. That is great. Good Work. Glad you had the time to indulge him in such a good way and keep him out of someone else's track.

  4. Aw dat's so cuuuuuuute!
    I used to subscribe to a blog (defunct now) that had notorious political trolls. Really only two ways to deal with them -- make fun of them or ignore them. Definitely can't argue them out of the site. So congrats with your cartoon :-)

  7. Nothing like a kitten to attract a Troll in the first place.

    Steve - I truly think you're right, that troll is a coward and won't come back. If he does...maybe I'll give him a free t-shirt!!!

    Peach - glad you appreciate the asshole of the Troll. It's the little things that make animation fun. Ha.

  8. I had some chick go to all of my youtube videos and call me fat and tell me what a horrible parent I was. I laughed. Great cartoon!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I too appreciate the a-hole of the troll, but I didn't know how to put it in a PC way, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hahaha! I love this! I love your approach to this troll business.

    I haven't got a troll, so if your troll is sick and tired of being hit with love, he's welcome to mine.

    You are awesome, and that is all.

  11. Blogette - *gasp* wow, she really went out of her way. She probably just needs a hug. Or a kick. Ha.

    Alison - I will gladly share my Troll with you. He's not house-trained yet though.

    ReplyDelete

    I noticed the asshole too! Hehe. Good job!!

  15. Awww..I was hoping to see Pickle Weasel hug the Troll. But hey, TightAssed-Troll-Kitty-Love is just as good. Hug a Troll Today!

  16. Gotta love comments, good or bad. At least they're paying attention, right? Lovely troll.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm sorry if i may sound as a noob in your realm...why is there a butterfly with a bitten wing?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Anonymous #2 - I could make Pickle Weasel hug the troll. I am all powerful like that. Hug a Troll Today!

    Handflapper - yup. It's great that someone is looking and even better that most of them are sweet like yourself.

    Anonymous #3 - The most delicate thing I could think of to have a bite missing from it was a butterfly. Instead of an Apple. For a nasty Troll's laptop. Oh dear god, I've just explained the joke. I'm not supposed to do that!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I must function like you, cuz I got the butterfly joke.

  24. Love this post. JC, you are a genius! A beautiful genius. PS I agree. Trolls are all adorable kitty cats inside.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Anonymous #2 - So tempted!

    Cool Whip - Thanks lady. I was just thinking, if I was a Troll, I'd prolly just want my chin scritched. And a dish of cream.

    ReplyDelete
  26. dispatch the troll with a golden flame of truth like I do

    ReplyDelete
  27. Joe - Golden flame of truth? Is that a bit like a blue angel?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Turned the troll into a kitten! Genius, JC! I've been around a LONG time in the computer field. You definitely got yourself a troll.

    They come in couple of different flavors:
    - hit and run: a site has open comments, so they come in, drop a comment and leave, never to be seen again.
    - contrary: come and sit and be opposed to everything/everyone. this type of troll needs to be banned. but, thry just come back as troll#2, forcing the site to use capchas.
    - bad mood troll - this is the one that says something mean and regrets it. but, it's already out in public, and it not much they can do about it.

    I hope you have the last one. They are the kittens inside.

    PS: is it Canadian kittens who say "maow" instead of "meow"?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love the kitten!!! Could you put her on a tshirt? Like on Zazzle?

    ReplyDelete
  30. BAD TROLL! Trolls suck! Long live The Animated Woman!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Derek - Wow! That's cool 411, thanks. Canadians usually say "meow" just like US peeps. I wanted the it to sound like a kitten though...I dunno, "maow" just sounded babyish to me!

    GrandeMocha - throwing it on a t-shirt now! Knowing zazzle it'll take about a day. I'll tweet it out when it's up.

  32. Coax, coax, nudge, nugde...Pickle Weasel hugging a Troll...tempt, taunt...beg...begging now on my knees. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  33. You know, you just make me feel good reading here. I get all happy seeing that I have a new post from the Animated Woman in my feed reader. To heck with the trolls. You make me happy and right now I really need that. :)

  34. Ask not for whom the web trolls; it trolls for thee.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks Ginae! You're awesome.

    I hear you #2. Patience.

    Jen - I'm speechless. This comment blew me away. Thank-you.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Phil - that saying rings a bell. Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Trolls have bullied me online. I would just have to push the delete button myself.

    ReplyDelete
  38. This post is exactly why I adore you.

  39. Testing, testing

    ReplyDelete
  40. I always pound them then add insult to injury tell them "now get a girlfriend and kiss her it's not scary"

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh, figures. I can post as anonymous, but it won't let me post as me in any form. *sighs*

    Okay, JC, this is Renee Malove (@rmalove) and I have to say, this is darling. Have DM'd you my thoughts on the ongoing relationship between the troll and the pickle weasel via Twitter, let me know how that goes!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh! Oh! Victory! Whatever you did, it worked :) LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Dear Anonymous #1: I'm going to CC this on your previous post, because I truly feel you need to see this and would hate for you to miss it in any way, shape or form. You see, I think you're an admirable sample of distinguished troll-hood. You have just the right amount of contempt in your voice, the perfect amount of personal slur in your insult, the right catch-phrase to poke a hole where it hurts. You've obviously done your homework!

    Because such a carefully researched example of trolling is so very admirable, I feel a bit of constructive criticism is absolutely required. I'd just like to say that you could use a thesaurus to add a little more inflammatory language to your post to get the proper effect. It felt a little juvenile, unlike the cultured tangent of an experienced troll. Examples of others whose work is inferior with which JC could compare herself would also make this a more well-rounded trolling-but I'm sure those things will come in time.

    In the meantime, I'm proud of you for stepping up in such distinguished company to make a name for yourself! You've obviously worked hard to scan the Internet and find the right blog with the perfect amount of readers to ensure you'll be noticed without getting lost in the crowd. JC's readers are dedicated and willing to defend her work, making it the perfect opportunity to stir the pot. Not many trolls have the time in their day-to-day life to do that kind of research, so buried beneath the obligations of being a responsible family member and employee that they'll stop by and insult any blog that comes along. You're going to do great things, Anonymous Troll. Great, Great things.

  46. That's a good way to look at it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I had my first troll last week. I was a bit sad after reading the comment. But I deleted it and ignored never to think of it again. You, my dear are gracious.

    Love the kitty animation...and yes they are teeny-tiny little asscracks who like to stir the pot.

    Renee- love your comment. I hope the troll sees it.

    ReplyDelete

  51. I had a troll who stuck around for 8 months, what a nightmare.

    Things the troll did...

    Vile sex messages on my blog, several times per day

    Stole a picture of my son from my blog and used it as a forum avatar

    Followed me to every single forum I went to and posted his bile there.

    This happened every single day, for months. until he found another victim.

  52. Rachelle - Whaaa? Ok that is beyond the land of Troll into the depths of true evil. Yeesh, how awful for you.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Animated Woman,
    Don't do it, don't let anonymous drag you into drawing something that wasn't your idea. =)
    But I do love your idea, we're not feeding the troll, we are killing it with kindness.

    ReplyDelete
  57. No trolls here, but I like your approach. So cute.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I've only had two on my FB page. The first one, I ridiculed him a lot and then someone told me about not feeding them, so the second one I just point blank asked them if they were just there to troll. They said no, and I haven't heard from them since.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'm the only person I know who has admitted to being a troll. Here's how it happened.
