Even my post here will be considered troll bait by some. So much for free speech.
Oftentimes, posters are considered trolls because their posts suggest a lack of understanding of the basic concepts they're trying to argue.
For example, once in awhile a troll will post some garbage, then try to claim that private citizens or admins of private message boards who disagree or disallow the troll's message are somehow committing a "free speech" offense.
