To Troll or not to Troll

It's not the lack of emoticons, nor is it inexperience with netiquette - It's the difficulty in knowing when someone's trolling and when you're the one lacking a sense of humor at that moment. (it's easy to figure out: study sun tzu)
Quote:
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.

If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
~Sun Tzu Art of War - Strategem (cp3/pg18)
And for the nerfherders:
Quote:
It is easier to perceive error than to find truth, for the former lies on the surface and is easily seen, while the latter lies in the depth, where few are willing to search for it.
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
    poet; his most famous work was the poetic drama in two parts, FAUST
and for the know-it-alls:
Quote:
An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.
~Niels Bohr
    physicist; in September 1927 Bohr put forward his principle of complementarity which gave a physical interpretation of Heisenberg's uncertainty relations
