Trolling has been defined as:

"In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into a desired emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."

The question is does it exist on SZ and if so what can be done about it?

I think this site is capable of policing itself.

If anyone mugs me off they can expect to have their front door kicked down at 4am and be taken away in the back of a van (an unmarked Bedford Rascal in this particular case)

This thread has all the hallmarks of being directed at me without mentioning my name. I'm not bloody stupid.

I do not go trolling.

I post in the PUB section only 99% of the time.

This board has a few headcases hell bent in driving me away. It won't happen. Engage in a conversation with me and i'm a top bloke.

Mess with me and you will come under it. I can't be clearer then that.

The choice is yours.

Because obviously the 'does cyberbullying exist on SZ' thread isn't a better reason for this to get started

This is the key question.
As Lenin said "What is to be done?"
Might I suggest (also following Lenin) "One step forward,two steps back?"

btw imitation(or plagiarism) is always the sincerest form of flattery.
