That is not the only definition of trolling. A troll is someone who posts in threads that are usually off topic, make no sense and are generally designed to cause problems and are irritating to the thread starter. Usually, trolls are trying to up their post count. On the opposite end, a spammer is someone trying to direct people to a site to buy or participate in something.

Here's a BETTER definition of a troll. Taken from this page in our own forums....

Now, for the sake of not trolling myself, I still think that paintball needs to clean up it's image and until then, they don't need to be in the X, Y or Z games....

Yes, thank you Vike, a troll posts, to bring the thread off topic. Backman your smartass comments are not appreciated, and will lead to your being kicked off this forum for good if you keep it up. You will not be warned or temp banned again.

So did you even bother looking at the defintion there?

Hmmm.... A lot happens while I'm out, aparently. It'd be awesome to see paintball in the X-Games, but in its current state I don't think it is suitable quite yet. As Vike said, it needs to clean up its act some first.

Mainstream Paintball can only HELP our sport...

The more people want to play the more fields will open. As many of you know now fields are few and far between. Some of us have to drive over an hour to get to a field to play and renegade ball, as fun as it is, can be dangerous without the proper officiating and safety gear (Chronos)

Should it be on the X-Games... NO it should still be televised though. Lets hope ESPN got enough requests to keep it on the air.

It amazes me how a post simply put here to ask if you feel it should be in the X Games, and vote if you believe so, has turned into a topic of opinions and, as staff has put it, trolling.

My only intention here was to post a link, and have those that want to see it happen, make it happen. I agree and disagree with some of the reactions/opinions to this post, but I am keeping that to myself. I am here to stay up to date on products from Kingman, get help if needed with marker problems, even meet/make new friends. Aren't these the reasons these forums were made?

If you want it in the X Games, click the link and vote. If you don't, then simply don't click the link. Simple, right?

On another note, I just ordered my VS3 upgrades, can't wait for them to arrive. 3-8 days, man is it gonna be a long week.

Yeah, I don't think there's any real arguments going on here. People like to discuss these things. It was a good topic and it's good for people to get their opinions out. That way, people are more informed about the particular topic.

Seriously, hang around for another year and see what happens closer to the Presidential Election. Last one was a bugger! I think we lost at least 3-4 members due to that one...
