Inspirational Quote Troll

New troll variety spotted in the wild -- the Inspirational Quote Troll. 

First seen, by this researcher, on Facebook.

I saw this long string of inspirational quotes and their authors, all jammed together, in a long unbroken block of text, being deposited as a comment by The Amazing Post user on Facebook.

The dense cluster of  inspirational text was on a The New York Times thread about insomnia leading to dementia. 

The comment also included a direct link to The Amazing Post's profile page on Facebook, so the comment was clearly a misguided attempt to, not participate in the topic, but to drive people to their Facebook page.

This falls into the category of the Lazy Underachieving Troll species.

Instead of structuring an insincere abusive argument designed to be inflammatory, these Inspirational Quote Trolls copy some group of positive affirmations.

Then they hop around, pasting the clipboard text wherever they feel like disrupting an online conversation, but without exerting much effort.

What's this world coming to when even the criminals and spammers are miserable slackers? Have they no pride anymore?

Very similar to the Recipe Troll that I told you about a few days ago, which posts actual recipes and cooking instructions (prefaced with "I don't know what to post as a comment, so I'll just give you my recipe for blueberry muffins") as comments.

Being disruptive, but in a very slothful manner.

My comment is that dementia is more often caused by dosing non-psychiatric nursing home patients with anti-psychotics to make them easier to manage.

And now...

Here is the actual Inspirational Quote Troll spam, in its entirety:
