The Pleasanton Weekly Troll

Original post made by DSM-IV on Aug 11, 2009

There is a person in our fair community that has decided to take over the PWTF for personal reasons - most likely a need for attention.

This person is posting as all different screen names, first posting stories, then actually dissenting with the opinion of the original post, then posting another and then posting and agreement to generate fights based on their agenda.

Until the Editors clean up this forum and put in some restraints on posts, perhaps we should leave the PW Troll alone with all of their self-generated personas and "issues".

This is seriously disturbing. Perhaps this individual is a manic-depressive. From the post clock, this person was up between 3 and 4 AM posting well over 30-40 posts. They took a break for a couple of hours and have resumed.

I think they must be having manic episode:

"Mania is an intense high where the person feels euphoric, almost indestructible in areas such as personal finances, business dealings, or relationships. They may have an elevated self-esteem, be more talkative than usual, have flight of ideas, a reduced need for sleep, and be easily distracted. The high, although it may sound appealing, will often lead to severe difficulties in these areas, such as spending much more money than intended, making extremely rash business and personal decisions, involvement in dangerous sexual behavior, and/or the use of drugs or alcohol."

It looks like "Troll Alert" has taken over now. . .
