What is a 10/10 Troll Thread Example?

I see a lot of threads earn 1/10 on the troll scale, and most other threads land somewhere between 4-6. So I'm curious... what sort of trolling constitutes a ten out of ten? What do you fine connoisseurs of trolly trolling consider to be a masterful artpiece of troll? Can you provide any links, or examples to particularly well done ingame or forum trolls (the trolling actions themselves, not the people)?

Scams are alright, but I figure they fall into a different category unless the point of the scam was to enrage the person instead of make money or some other economic thing.

Generally, from what I know of the enigmatic concept, trolling must be believable to those unaware, hilarious to those aware, and generally result in some sort of mayhem and/or tears. Lately it seems causing some effective rabble-rousing seems to be a requirement. Stirring up the revolutionary pot, as it were.

So let's see it. What is a 'good troll'?

I don't think a thread about trolling will survive long before a lock.

Soooo INB4 Lock?

A 10/10 troll is so deviously convincing that nobody realises it's a troll, and so doesn't rate it.

This, a perfect troll is never found out to be a troll.

Katrina, the fact that you promised me at the dinner table that you would stay away from the forums today just proves how you go back on your word.

Everyone, please ignore the Op's post, she is not supposed to be here at all.

We'll chat when I get home from work, Katrina. Stay away from the computer until I get home.

I still want that futuristic segway thing.

To the OP, if you want a perfect troll, go look up some of Tarminic's work on the old forums. It go so bad that they had to bring in CCP Prism X to nerf him.

Also confirming that CCP Tuxford has achieved a 10/10 troll on the game itself by starting a 60 second restart timer on the production cluster (TQ) instead of his local server.

It's not that hard to do this. Let me give a quick guide.

Step 1) Find a topic that everyone on the forums is already raging about

Step 2) Bring up said topic with a list of absolutely ridiculous points that make no sense

Step 3) Profit. Don't even need a ???.

Try it. It's fun.

A thread with a 10/10 troll quality is a thread not troll rated.

Cause people wont ever know he was trolling, that is good trolling.

Now this one of yours barely hits the 1/10 scale.

I agree but there seems to be a whole new breed of dumb people playing Eve and it's becoming harder to tell the trolls from the legitimate stupids.
