Other anons feel free to add onto this list, as I don't doubt the style of trolling will evolve as we catch on to it.
I've noticed a few patterns with bait-posting/trolling. I hope this can help you not to waste time on responding to these sorts of disruptors. While they may or may not be men, or just very rude women, they're often not worth your time.

- Overly aggressive, often to innocuous statements. Otherwise disproportionately aggressive.
(e.g. Statement: My arms are really weak. I'm hoping to train up my arm muscles!
Response: Fucking pickme bitch, sometimes I wonder if you're secretly a scrote lurking the board. Get some self-esteem, grow a spine, or go kill yourself. Pickmes like you make the rest of us look bad. )
