*yes, trolling is life if done with style.
If you have not wished for the disaster of another conference or MUN society, then you are a real angel. But, in the muniverse, our feelings tend to precede our actions sometimes. Some of us may have spread rumors on/about other circuits/conferences and some of us may have pretended to be part of a team just to give out misleading information and enjoy the respective chaos from their actions. So, how to properly express your frustration but without losing your cool?
1)Unsafe Browsing: Unfortunately, it is extremely easy to trace back digital footprints, especially when the anonymous answering option is included. This is why, if you want to send out a funny application/a love letter or anything else that your twisted imagination can think of, make sure to cover your tracks. Private browsing, safe VPN (your profile on the web) and regular clearing of your browsing history may save you from some uncomfortable messages.
2)Memes: Memes are turning out to be an exercising diplomacy tool, but if posted at the wrong time, may be associated with a specific conference/circuit and generate… discussions about your relationship with that team etc. Should you wish to post something, keep the general concept that your meme wants to indicate and make sure to post it in a more elegant way, increasing suspicions only. If you are a trolling group, make sure to have different time zones of trolling in order to differentiate your personalized style.
3)Oscar-winning stories: Yes, spreading a rumor may be harmful especially within the munopoli’s limits where “word of mouth” is still the best credential out there. But, if your rumor is worthy to be included in the next Game of Thrones season, then you might want to reconsider your career options, your potential psychological residual issues and of course your own reputation. It is better to simply spread doubt rather than facts-Voldemort did it quite successfully.
4)Anything that could be done to you as well: For example, giving a bad review on the conference’s social media, will not bring you satisfaction over your lost time or will not give you back the award that you lost. On the contrary, it may simply mark you as a potential receiver of respective behavior.
There is actually only one: Mind your own business to the best way possible. Because, frankly, if all the time you wasted to diminish someone else’s work was dedicated to upgrading your own game, you would have long “won” and you would not be in need to act in such manner. Self-trolling and admitting mistakes is always useful and saves you from a lot of unnecessary mun drama. The line between humor and bullying is bigger that Trump’s hands and that can’t be changed.
