My dear lady, a troll is an internet term for a person who starts a
discussion just to be contrary and encourage negative
postings, then promptly leaves the forum. Obviously you haven't been
on the internet long enough to hear this term.
You came to this site belonging to a person who loves natural henna;
this person asks that black henna discussions be held elsewhere. You
posted a message saying that we were all liars for spreading the truth
about black paste. I believe you began the name calling.
I wasn't calling you a name in the playground sense. I was merely
referring to your volatile expession of negative thoughts on a public
As for me being a nasty lady and needing psychological help, perhaps
you should concern youself with your own mental health and not that of
others. You have chastised me for calling you a "name" and then you
proceed to sink to the level you think I have reached. There are
better ways to argue your point, as any good psychologist will tell
you. On the other hand, perhaps you, who have never met me, should
generalize about my state of mind and my attitudes toward others. I
have been attending this forum for a long time and I think I have
helped people who have legitimate stories and concerns about henna,
but I could really be wrong, perhaps I'm just a nut.
I never questioned your artistic integrity, and I never will.
