Classical Trolljitsu is the gentle art of winning an online argument with a troll.
Sadly, there are very few free speech forums where the trolljitsu vs. troll army games can be played remaining.
A trolljitsu / troll “army” was a collection of perhaps 3 to 8 handles run by one individual. Thus you are unlikely to ever see an active trolljitsu master at his/her finest.
Masters – masters are the most advanced of trolljitsu adepts, the esoteric skills of wielding a trolljitsu army and fending off hostile troll armies are difficult to quantify – suffice to say, when you see a master at work, you will stop to admire his/her skill.
Adepts – making the skill transition in vocabulary, an adept cannot become a trolljitsu master until proficiency in defeating trolls is demonstrated without using any profanity – this enables an adept to defeat trolls outside of the shark tank and to politely own an admin or a mod to the great amusement of onlookers without getting tanked.
Apprentices – are working on the basic trolljitsu skills of debate and logic – emotional control is essential, apprentices who lose their temper may be doomed to remain trolljitsu apprentices forever.
Novices – have recently learned that trolljitsu can be fun and wish to try it – sadly their efforts are amusing only due to the sheer amateurish quality – those who are serious about trolljitsu will quickly advance to Apprentice level.
