Many of you have written to say how much you enjoyed Part 1 of the world's first "COMPENDIUM OF TROLLOSOPHY" posted here: http://occupywallst.org/forum/how-trolls-think-trollosophy-exposed/
In fact, so many of you wrote in to contribute some juicy quotes, either from troll politicians or from trolls on this very forum, that a Part Two became a must. Enjoy... and please CONTRIBUTE to this work in progess.
As for you, Newt, Rush and our own very talented "resident trolls", keep your big mouths wide open and let those GEMS OF UNWISDOM flow like a mighty stream! Hallelujah!
