Is there a Law of Trolls?
Posted by c. wagner on November 2, 2009
You’ve head of the laws of thermodynamics, Newton’s laws of motion, and the law of gravity, but how about Godwin’s Law or the Law of Exclamation?
The internet has evolved its own set of rules and laws and some of these are quite humorous. Take Skitt’s Law, for example:
Expressed as “any post correcting an error in another post will contain at least one error itself” or “the likelihood of an error in a post is directly proportional to the embarrassment it will cause the poster.”
Or Danth’s Law:
“If you have to insist that you’ve won an internet argument, you’ve probably lost badly.”
See how many of these you’ve seen during your hours and hours of surfing.
