    Somehow the initial post sounds like a successful trolling attempt, has all the characteristics of it.

    While we're on the topic of guidelines for civil conduct on the forums, I think calling people's motivations into question and accusing them of trolling when they aren't even present to defend themselves is fairly unsportsmanlike. Whether or not it's a troll, we can still have a lighthearted-but-sincere discussion about it. Ean may be a little green in terms of having discussions with people of different beliefs but that's no reason to deny him the same right to start threads that everybody else here has.

    I think what he is referencing is the history of Osama's ties with the US. Let's just say this... like Saddam, there was once a time when he was our ally.

    But that is another thread topic.

    i was making a reference to the fact that most 13-14 year olds had no idea who Osama was and why didnt know why people were happy that he was dead.

    Ah. I see. Well... I question why people are happy about it as well, and I'm nearly 26. But my feelings are somewhat controversial, and that's a topic for another thread.

    Hahaha! As a matter of fact dash, that's precisely why I have difficulty with the popular public attitude these days. You're right though - this is definitely tangental to the original discussion.

    Ah, sorry amph. Didn't mean to put words in your mouth. I thought that's where you were going with it, apparently not.

    It all depends on how you phrase it. I believe I left more than enough room for doubt in my post so it is for the reader to decide whether it is trolling or not. And since we touched the topic of online etiquette let me reiterate that the initial POST DOES have all the characteristics of internet trolling as commonly defined:

    "someone who posts controversial and usually irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the intention of baiting other users into an emotional response"

    So please let the man defend himself.

    P.S. Anyway it seems like I'm adding fuel into this fire and thus I apologize and will go and do something productive instead
