    I know I am by no means typical of the average Bully, but the above quote bears emphasis. If you want people to go easy on your child, make a BBC thread about it. Hell, maybe there should be a sticky listing instructors' students and members' children who should be handled with care. My enjoyment of the weirdness was interrupted by genuine confusion when it seemed like someone knew who the random troll du jour really was.

    Long story short: this is Bullshido, and those kinds of posts are never well received.

    I don't want people to treat him with care just because he's my kid, but if you see someone who has a start date that goes back a few years, and has competition footage, TD footage, and a posting history... etc. It's a safe bet it's a real Bully and not a wandering troll. Hell, what troll has "sanda, sambo" in their style field?

    The problem is that the level of sophistication in the eCulture here is too high for most kids. He really had no way to know why he was being trolled in the beginning (posting style/composition)

    Yes we do get kids who post "I traned UFC in the Marne COre!!!1" type crap, but the central problem with that is hardly the use of the language or punctuation.

    Just explain it to him. Tell him he was trolled for the stupid **** he was posting and the stupid way he was posting it. Tell him everyone who posts like he was is going to get trolled. This is what makes this site so damn much fun. There are no "babysitter" waivers here. Also ask him what a "retarted" is.

    @Tom If you read what was posted you'll see that he made a pretty much "normal" post (ie:SIrc is a ***** who doesn't deserve the BB) but got jumped on for presentation. He figured that much out and adjusted his style, but by then the trolls were circling. He was baited with insults to his family, and took it...

    If I wanted him to become an excellent poster with a mature enough grasp of layered irony, reference, and social dynamics to safely navigate a place like this, I'd have him post on /b until he "get's it". Personally I don't think posting there would make him a better person.

    In the end, kids like Ben will always get treated this way on sites like this, because sites like this are significantly about the lulz, and early teenagers are lulzy when they're angry (unless they're yours).

    Personally I would rather he spent less time online in general, and more time doing things like sports (MA's included). The Internet punishes innocence, and passes it off as helping kids HTFU. It's really nothing more than good old fashioned hazing, and it won't help a kid below a certain age become a better martial artist.
