 i had to look up "troll", and would you agree that this is a
reasonable definition? " One who posts a deliberately provocative
message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing
maximum disruption and argument."

 so, where is the *deliberate* intent? are you able to read my mind?
have you *asked* me what my intent is?

 was there a question here?

 btw i am endeavouring to follow some strict ethical guidelines on
interaction, provide constructive feedback (again, part of following
ethical guidelnes), and also remain polite (which, perhaps
surprisingly, is not actually part of ethical guidelines, but is
present in other guides on group interaction that i've read).

 would you agree that there is a difference between "valued" and "welcome"?

> Arsenic does not improve a soup

 would you agree that it is valuable to find that, on putting arsenic
into a meal and it is discovered to be poisonous, that that is
*incredibly* important new information?

 so would you consider sarcasm to be toxic?
