    Hey Andy, (I believe we agreed I could call you Andy, Andy)

    I admire and aspire to your usurps! I have tried this with one of my own pseudonyms: taking a group which was basically a forum for single mums and calling it “The group for Bitter women and others who find them amusing”. However, the group still has over a thousand members, despite several semi-offensive and derogatory group emails. I feel my mistakes have been the following:
    a) My change of title was too close to the original (which I forget). This simply gave several hundred woman a common enemy to fight, and thus rallied their cause, perhaps? and;
    b) I didn’t get hard enough, fast enough. Perhaps by simply branding all single parents as slack knickered benefit seekers I was being too soft.

    Please advise me on how to improve on my technique for better results next time. Many thanks,

    B. Arney

      Well Arney, I applaud your efforts, but don’t expect to garner the hatred of the internet straight away; it takes persistence. I’m sure after a month or so of spamming these women with links to prophylactics and abortion clinics, you’ll get a decent rise.

      My advice- don’t go for the easy nibbles. Most single Mums are already aware of the ‘benefit-scrounging slut’ cliche. They’ve heard it before, from people who really mean it, so you’re not likely to get a decent rise.

      But if you wandered in there under a sympathetic moniker, bemoaning the treacheries of trying to maintaining a sex-life when you’ve got a little nipper around, then they’ll be all ears. Tell them how active your sex life was before you had kids and this will probably ring true with one or two of them, and you’ve got them on your side.
      Soon as you have their ear, it’s time to launch the grand plan: Orgies with a creche facility next door. The parents could take it in turns to be the minder while the rest of the adults get it on next door. You’re in Dhaka, so tell them that’s what happens there. They’ll believe it. Bingo, that’s about ten pages of hatred.
      But always these people work in black and white. You’re either with us or you’re against us. If you say “I agree” they like you, say “I disagree” and they don’t. Boring. You must stalk these people from the gray areas of social intercourse. Smile, agree, make outrageous statement. Rinse and repeat.

      Also, in my experience, if you’re going to change the title, make sure you change it to something that will provoke your target market:

      “I hate my kid and I want to sell it.”
      “Campaign for post-birth abortions.”
      “Pakis out.”

    Ah Mr Rubble, why did you not inform me of this group you attempted to usurp. I will gladly help you troll on the odd quite day at work. No doubt there will be many a quiet day out in the desh?

    Thanks Andy,

    That was a considerable amount of feedback without so much as hint of abuse; I am both honoured and surprised. I will certainly take on board all of your suggestions and comments for my next usurping, though I feel I am done with the whiners of my current project – the few threats of violence and abuse have dwindled from a small stream to a dripping tap in a cheap hotel room and I have almost lost the will to insult the dump sods.
    Therefore, I feel it is time to carry out the good work on some other inane group. I am really hoping to find one with a strong moral cause full of pricks who think that they will change the world with their facebook group! I know I’m aiming high, but hey, “if you aim for the stars – you might just hit some smug tall twat in the face” .. or something like that.
    Hugh jon: If you wish to attempt to make better my initial attempt you may be my guest good sir, please add yourself to the group and I will promptly hand over the reigns to you soon enough (by soon I mean any time between immediately and 2090)

    Happy trolling.

    Cheers, Andy,

    B Arney

    What is the next step Mr Somethingson? Surely by taking some of the codes of practise you have spelled out and applying them to a more evolved form of Trolling.

    For example. Instead of hijacking a group that is already falling to pieces becuase the upper management have decided to do a runner, what about setting up a facebook group condemning what happened to Baby P. Then waiting until you have about 4,000 self righteous members who all beat their own children (but not to death) and then, when the timing is right unleash the new name. “BabyP got what was coming to him. He wont steal from me in 14 years now”

    Just a thought.
