In Internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.
Top trolls that I deal with on each PSEC article:
I will keep track of comments (even the ones that are deleted from Seeking Alpha due to being considered 'abusive') so that readers have context for our continued conversation and hope that others find humor in this blog.
Recent comments from 'koleffstephan':
"Heck, maybe you can sell some of the Hercules BDC stock that you are touting (all of the insiders of Hercules have been selling, why not you too and join the club!) and use the money to have a mental health care professional give you some humbling self-deprecating attitude reality check. Jusy sayin."
" Mr. Buzz: You too "write the same content and hidden biased verbiage on PSEC." Please "don't try next week," to write some more on PSEC - save your time and our eyesight."
" You really are writing and drinking koolaid. I am entitled to read any and all articles on my investments - including PSEC - and while many articles on PSEC are worthwhile, yours are not."
" It is "absurdly extreme" to think that Hercules insiders "have more skin in the game" than the PSEC insiders (including the CEO's of each respective company). Just saying."
