"a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."
That, I think, applies to most on here at one time or another.
Exactly the point I was getting at,
Trolling seems to get conflated with "not agreeing with"
The sowing of discord and inflammatory comments could be as easily be aimed at any number of posters, maybe a bit more tolerance and use of the ignore settings all round might help people's blood pressure
Leslie Vainikolo, Henry Paul, Shontayne Hape and probably some others I can't recall all represented new Zealand, were born in New Zealand, grew up in New Zealand but represented England at RU. Don't you think you are being a tad hypocritical? One of the home nations, I don't remember which, it was the Irish or the Welsh just selected an over 30 South African this very week.
We weren't discussing Leslie Vainikolo, Henry Paul or Shontayne Hape or even Rikki Flutey. If we had been I'd have said the same as I did about Rangi Chase, I think national declaration should be a cross code thing, in fact I'd go further and make it across all sports so if Paula Radcliffe wanted to take up Netball when she retires from ####### in the street she couldn't declare for the Silver Ferns if she moved to New Zealand. So no, I don't think I'm being a bit hypocritical in the slightest.
