    When you used to post as 320yearsofhistory, there were many times when a large percentage of the postings in the clean debate section was yours.

    Was that trolling, or just your wanting to dominate the clean debate section?

    Trolling is usually defined as saying things just to piss people off, so I wouldn't say you were trolling. It takes more than just a profligate posting pattern to be considered a troll

    I would personally define the practice of flooding the board with inane threads as spamming...

    Pertinent threads are in the eye of the beholder.

    Say... shouldn't I be getting paid?
    I don't accept credit cards, but I'm good with cheap, gaudy jewelry and beer.

    Impotent, irrational, irrelevant foreigners obsessively scanning headlines every 5 minutes to start troll threads about their betters is certainly trolling.
