Ha! Normally I'm all for tolerance, but I have =yet= to meet a
troll that didn't conform to what =you= would call "stereotyping".
I don't attack =any= of the peaceful creatures; I pacify -- rather
than kill -- all of the bellicose dogs and cats; I leave sleeping
nymphs alone; I contribute =all= of my gold at =every= temple.

But what happens when I meet a troll? Immediately it's hitting and
biting! Once, I socked a troll hard enough that it went away, and I
let it do so. Did it learn its lesson? No; as soon as it'd had
some time to collect itself, it came charging back to bite and hit

So =enough= of this PC bull____ about trolls. Each and every one of
you is scum. I'd say that the only good troll is a =dead= troll,
but, then, a troll corpse can turn back into a live troll, so even
a =dead= troll can be NFG!

I will agree with you on one thing: You're not a race of practical
jokers. You're TFS for that!

It's always Dark. Light only hides the Darkness.
