RE: "Personal Trolls": What motivates these guys?
Well, everything does. But we can apply a general set of rules to make a judgement here. Is the person only participating in the forum exclusively to harrass the other individual, is one of the ones I proposed at the start of the thread. Your tormentor participated in the political discussions, so if he was a "personal troll", he was personal troll, junior grade.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
