Views on trolls
A week or so after finding the Furry Fandom, Sam became acquainted with the trolls, mostly through you tube and watching the hate videos. After "fighting" a few pointless "battles" and under the original misconceptions about trolls he approached a few. After initially getting polite responses, and a general idea of what the trolls were for, he secede from the "furry war". Concluding that trolls, for the majority, are often bored teens and college students looking for "lulz" in peoples reactions. And not the hating, nasty,people originally concepted, although he frowns upon trolling, and views it as a waste of time, as always, "to each his own".
Recently he has been dormant in the fandom, but still following along the sidelines. He continues to strengthen his artistic abilities, keep in touch with friends, and learn more about the fandom. He follows the fandom from afar,and plans to become active again in the future.
