Internet Troll Cartoon

Internet Troll by Bearman Cartoons

Ah the lovely internet troll. Anyone that blogs or posts regularly somewhere online has run across this person at least once. Some of you probably ARE the troll. I don’t judge. haha. So give us your best troll story.

This is kind of a search engine experiment. Last year I posted a sign of the wrestler Sheamus. Today if you do a google image search of “Sheamus Sign“, guess whose image pops up first?  So while there are cartoons of internet trolls, it would be interesting to see if I could get this one to page one.  There are a couple other phrases that people use to find my site so I may do cartoons of those in the future.  Any you would like to see?

    Nothing worse than a troll maybe except for Herpes.

  2. Tim Green says:

    It seems kind of obvious, but it would be awesome if you googled the word “bear” and one of your toons popped up first!

    Recently a troll commented on one of my old video tutorials, I went to HIS profile expecting to be schooled on how to make a really slick tutorial, but nope, he had no videos uploaded, and all his activity log was going around dissing on other people’s videos. I assume it was a guy, from the style. The best thing to do to trolls is IGNORE them totally. In fact, at one of the jobs I worked at there was a plugin for vbulletin called trollvanity or something. If you had an obvious troll you would feed his user id into the plugin and from then on, only the troll would see his own rude posts but no one else would, so you were enforcing “ignore the troll” since no one could take the bait because they wouldn’t even see it. It was fun to imagine these sick pathetic losers coming back to see who got riled up in the forums only to see that apparently no one cares. Welcome to my world trolls. I wonder if they have something like that for WordPress!

    • Bearman says:

      That IS the best thing to do. Unfortunately I don’t always do the right thing. I like to play with them, build them up and then tear them down.

    Some trolls are awesome and then some are like Colleen described about. I don’t care for those kind of trolls.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

    Last year there was one episode of my webcomic where a troll by the name of “The Baron” responded in the comments section. He said this:

    “I’ve read every comic thus far you’ve posted and I gatta say…
    Wow. Just… wow. Please stop while you can.”

    The email he used to make the comment was

    Not only did I not stop making the comic, but I inserted a snobby pompous ass of a character named “The Baron” in my comic several episodes later, using some of what he said above plus other snobbish type stuff. I of course took creative license on what he looked like, but I’m pretty sure how I depicted him is accurate. He’ll also be listed in the special thanks of my book when I it gets released. 😀

    • Bearman says:

      That is awesome. George Ford at Addanac City had a similar troll going for a while. Like me George played with his mind for a while before finally getting bored of him and blocking him completely.

    Post anything on YouTube and you’ll meet the Troll. Videos of puppies or babies? The Troll will bash that. Soft piano music? Troll will bash that. Ten minutes of a jar of mayonnaise? You know who’ll be there.

    You can always recognize the Troll by his trademark catchphrase “damn this shitz hella gay”.

  7. G says:

    I can regale you with personal horror stories of trolls who knew me personally, but alas, I won’t do that because not only would it depress everyone here but it would make your skin crawl as well.

    I did write about them on my blog in the early yeara, but at this point, there is no need to revisit stressful times.

    I can leave you with one concrete example: Being heavily trolled in the chat rooms led me to start moderating my blog in the winter of 2008.

  8. lisleman says:

    What do you do if live under a bridge? You play the part and eat Billy Goat. Do trolls phish?

  9. Trolls are a rite of passage, aren’t they? I haven’t had enough traffic at my website yet to warrant a troll, but I will parade him around like the Stanley Cup when it happens!

  10. Friggin Loon says:

    There should be a Troll App like War Craft, where you can hunt them down and turn them into a pop up ad!!!!

    • Bearman says:

      The worst are when you look for the lyrics to a song and no matter which one you go to that same damn pop up shows up on the site.

  11. I’m embarrassed to admit this, but what’s an internet troll? Something bad I assume. I guess I haven’t been blogging long enough.

    “Kate Middleton’s armpits” is my biggest search term. I guess there are tons of people out there that have a fetish for her pits.

    • G says:

      An internet troll is someone who goes to blogs, chat rooms, forums and the like and simply makes inflammatory comments to other people’s posts/websites.

      • Todd Tevlin says:

        Inflammatory -and- maliciously I might add. It’s basically someone who uses the “anonymity” of the internet to be a total asshole to people, because they are hiding behind a computer screen somewhere in the world and think they can get away with it.

        Some do it to get a rise out of people, but most do it because they have some serious self esteem issues. They are basically the bullies of the internet.

        • Bearman says:

          Bullies of the internet because they feel they have no power elsewhere.

          • G says:

            Very true. I’ve seen instances in which this kind of stuff escalated into the offended parties having law enforcement called in to help solve the problem(s).

            It also doesn’t help that the hosting website doesn’t consistently enforce their Terms of Service policy.

            Topix chat rooms are notorious for that.

          • Bearman says:

            Thankfully I don’t have experience with Topix. About 10 years ago I used to visit some Yahoo chats and there were trolls who could send some message through chat that would constantly kick you out of a room. If only I had some computer skills.

          • Thank you all for filling me in on the lovely troll. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before I get slammed too. These damn bullies show up everywhere. If I get one, I’ll be sure to say what my kids tell me works on bullies…”Listen up, Jackass! If you don’t leave me alone, I’m going to tell everybody at school how bad your farts stink.” Think it will work?

          • Bearman says:

            Where I come from a Bully will fart on you just so you know how much their shit stinks.

  12. I forgot to add that he is good looking troll…very trollish.

  13. Binky says:

    I had a little gang of them invade my place a while ago. When I didn’t approve their comments, did they ever get mad. Hard to believe how stupid they were.

  14. Mark Stokes says:

    Haven’t dealt much with the dreaded internet troll, but now I know what they look like! Thanks, Bearman!

  15. Nate Fakes says:

    It’s funny, but STILL the major search word for people finding my blog is ‘Elevator Buttons’. I’m about to just throw in the towel and focus on them.

  16. My number one search term is ‘Chaos Theory’, but my favorites include
    ‘how long can you leave mourning dove in refrigerator’
    ‘this does not make the ribosomes happy’
    ‘random s**t with orchid’…

  17. Bo Lumpkin says:

    Obviously the Trolls are not too bright. If you really want to attract attention and followers, be nice, promote others, and produce something yourself. That is exactly what Bearman does…without gettin’ mushy about it and he has comments and followers everywhere.

    I don’t get enough traffic to get trolled and I don’t have much spam so it is not a problem for me.

  18. Time was, you could find some really nasty trolls on stumbleupon. There were plenty of douchebags (who didn’t create anything themselves) who got a following just by being as vicious as they could with the “thumbs down” comments. Eventually, stumbleupon clamped down on that.

  19. Tony McGurk says:

    Youtube seems to be the most common place for trolls. So many videos seem to have comments from people who have nothing to say but nasty insults. These same ones offer nothing worthwhile themselves.
    How about a Spammer cartoon because your site is awesome & this is just the information I was looking for.

  20. MJ says:

    Ha, great cartoon

  21. I used to have a troll in my BlogTalk Radio show chat room. He called himself (Barrack Obama). I had to call him out for not being able to spell “Barack”.

  22. Scholar Mel says:

    I was new to blogging but was able to begin a group blog. It was going good until the troll came along.

    I was a newbie and didn’t ban the guy. I lost all of my contributors because the butthole wore us out.

    I should have banned him quicker.

    That’s been a few years. He just recently found another blog I have. He starts off by being friendly and that is what he did this time.

    I didn’t answer him and blocked him asap. He sent me an email because he was frustrated at me.

    What a loser…

  23. The internet seems to be the place for so many bad fairy tale creatures.

  24. I say we get rid of Internet Trolls. From now on, no more Wifi under any bridges.

  25. Jande says:

    Playing MMOs you learn pretty quickly to close the chat window when the trolls are out in force. And it usually only takes one. In WOW they called the trolling anal trash-talking “Barrens Chat”, because that was name of the zone where it started. But I felt that “barren” was pretty appropriate.

    You did a really nice job on that troll, though he looks a mite sensitive (never know a troll to exhibit any sensitivity). I think he’d look great on “Don’t feed the Trolls” T-shirt. <3
