Fgc Troll Case Study

Decent Essays
FGC is short for Florida Gulf Coast. Who is the Florida Gulf Coast Troll? I don't want to glorify that individual by revealing his Pennock's user name.

The FGC Troll just went negative on my writing skills. In fact, he said this: Ronald is not an intellectual. If he were, he would know how to write to be understood and be able to come to a clear and concise point.

"Ronald" is the first of two names on my birth certificate. I seldom use it online, but I did kind of let it slip out, quite some time ago.

The FGC Troll started with a non-sequitur, because I never declared myself to be "an intellectual."

What about the Troll's putdown of my way of writing?

AI, as I think almost everyone is already aware, is short for Artificial Intelligence. The AI-driven online paper grader that I have salected is called "PaperRater." It has some options that I will not be using, because they require payment. The more basic functions are "on the house."

Is PaperRater a good way to evaluate the text messages from Pennock's members that are the embodiment of this online discussion forum's Off Topic conversations?

I think it makes sense. Generally, we are posting our messages to make a point. To support an observation or conclusion. To present a question. To move a conversation forwards, in some way. I think it's fair to say that any writing that has these objectives is best described as an "essay" style of writing. "An essay is, generally, a piece of writing that gives the author's own argument..." That is how it begins. The Wikipedia entry for

    Not including an introduction to the quote can leave the reader confused when a random quote is thrown into the essay. It is not enough to just insert a quote and not include information about it. In this quote integration example, I did not effectively analyze the quote or explain how the quote is supposed to interpret and explain its purpose. The quality of my quote integration in my first writing assignment is less than…

    This was done out the same lack of interest that Graff describes is failing our education system. It was not my lack of knowledge, or my inability to do it. It just did not make sense for me to write something that won't change opinions, minds or do anything to contribute to society. It did not make sense that I should analyze a play that has been analyzed by scholars for years and picked apart by an academic community. There is nothing I could have possibly contributed that would have changed anything so why not grab a masterpiece from the internet and rewrite it?…

    In the essay, “Times Roman Font Announces Shortage of Periods”, author Steve Martin attempts to be funny by using sarcasm and irony. I did not find this essay to be particularly humorous at all. He starts of the story by stating, “Representatives of the popular Times Roman font, who recently announced a shortage of periods, have offered other substitutes” (1). That statement is what the whole rest of the essay is about and I am having a very hard time to find the humor in a story about a font running out of periods. A font type doesn’t have anything to do with periods.…

    He quotes from Cecil Day- Lewis from his poetic composition, “If it were clear in my mind, I should have no incentive or need to write about it . . .We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand” (Thomson 51). This evidence that Thompson gave us didn’t function to make his argument stronger, therefore this evidence was unsuccessful. This evidence supports old- fashion handwriting rather than using the internet to publish and help clarify the writer’s ideas.…

    Facebook’s policy contains at a little fewer than six thousand words, while the policy for Google+ only contains a thousand words. Also, the Google+ policy is very direct, simple, and to the point (Singel, 2011). The complexity of the Facebook privacy policy shows that they do not want the average users knowing the information they are entitled to. By making the privacy policy long and having a complex layout, the average user will not bother to go into detail about the policy and therefore will not be aware or know of the risks involved with posting anything on Facebook. While with Google+ policy, it contains only a thousand words as opposed to the face book policy which has a little fewer than six thousand words.…

    International doesn’t want to go down, warily stating, ‘everything which is not permitted by law is forbidden’” (Murray 2). This essay was written in October, yet it clearly represents an ability to provide context for a quote. This is a skill that didn’t need to be worked on, unlike MLA formatting, which is a skill that many ninth graders did not know coming into this year. For example, my very first essay this year was a book review on The Nazi Hunters by Neal Bascomb, a book I had read over the summer. This essay lacks any sign of proper MLA formatting, with a bolded title, no date, and no page numbers.…

    Fife and her students concluded that posting a status would "...offer telling information about the persons attempts to affect an audience. "(2010, 558). Fife also talked about how uploaded pictures could be an example of someones experiences. A big part of rhetorical analysis is appeal (Pathos, Logos, and Ethos), so Fife asserted that there were examples of different appeal throughout social media. Fife mentioned the differences of her "please like me" and "this is me" rhetorical strategies found on Facebook.…

    For example, Ms. Davis blogs about real estate. It would be a given she knows something about real estate. Individuals who read her blog may very well be an informed public, or just someone who wants some general information on real estate. A debunker troll will read the article with precision and may then, in the comment area write his reason for debunking the article and to attract attention he may respond in an inflammatory manner to stand out and guarantee that his response will be read and even expect a reply from the author. It has been said while I did the research on the net, there are debunker trolls who are professionals at what they do.…

    It feels a bit scattered and doesn 't feel like it is in order. Your paragraph about his information is fine but I think it needs to be orangized. Does the writer introduce the article’s name, the author’s name, and the main point/argument of the article? Is it effective? Yes, this part was very clear.…

    Badke gives a solution that isn’t a solution at all. He doesn’t talk about the long process it would take to create such an algorithm. Also it would be completely point less because fake news sites will find a way around it. Badke explains in one of his paragraphs about how Facebook came up with a fact checker, but even fake news has facts. Even with the checker it doesn’t remove the article.…
