This is most likely a request we will be making in vain, since we suspect none of these things matter to those who entertain themselves trolling websites.

However.

This is an international service provided for free, and with very little funding, to young people all around the world most often earnestly in need of help. Young people whose questions are serious, and whose personal issues and situations are not, in our view, entertaining nor anything to ridicule, pretend or mock.

Trolling makes light of the very real, sometimes incredibly serious and traumatic, people and situations that present themselves here. We also have to stop providing the help we do to those who need it when people come and troll here to manage their mess.

We are not fans of trolling, period, and consider it harassment wherever it happens, including to sites without such sensitive content and so little funding. However, if you feel you simply cannot stop yourself from trolling or find any other way on earth to amuse yourself and spend your time, that you, at the very least, do it in places very unlike this one. There are a million different places to go online, some of whom have almost nothing but trolling going on, and don't seem to mind it very much, or where it at least does not get in the way of people who earnestly need help and support: we have no doubt you can find somewhere else to have your fun.

Thank you.
