14. You misunderstand the purpose of trolling.

Sowing discord , hyper-partisanship, chicken little type hysteria, doom and gloom, sowing distrust in institutions and leaders .

The manufacturing of problems that don't exist is only one of many techniques I've seen employed on DU.

They want you to question your beliefs, to confuse you, to make you lose hope, to drain you emotionally .

They want you apathetic. They want you to give up on the political process. They want you disengaged.

They don't want you to vote.
