What knowledge changes your perception of whether or not something is beautiful?
two nights ago (it wasn't until today that i noted the ted comment forum doesn't allow links to be posted,it is now on my profile)i had written a slightly longer than allowed response to this on my tumblr page which can be found on my profile as i state in my response (especially toward adriaan braam as i see he is a leader in this discussion) i welcome any new knowledge no matter how it is acquired.

are we feeding 'trolls' the wrong food?
i shall correct you since, as i have dully noted, trolling ,as it has now come to be known as, is merely a higher degree of a natural behavioral response of wanting to either make oneself recognized through a feeble effort or as others might say merely a bit of a fit just for the hell of it, i never stated that i wish for such behavior to expand and extend around the globe. Seeing as you have misinterpreted i shall make my statement in a less complicated way, i understand that my explanations can sometimes be rather odd; since we are able to take note of more people's behavior rather than a small groups behavior (as a result of being unable to sample a larger group in the past due to a separated world) we now view not through a key hole but through the window(due to the internet) the real prominence of trolls throughout and around the world. I feel that yes it does change life in "the real world", but so does everything else i am a very high believer in the creation of alternate futures or ,as some view it, in the theory that every decision eliminates other alternate universes as they are no longer possible due to their elimination via a key action, in this same thought process i find that every single action and breath, any thing, no matter the insignificance, causes our future to change. These changes are more so like a snowflake rolling down a hill gaining a momentum and the increasing mass being the amount of change caused by the first small rolling snowball, where as a deliberate and profound decision starts out big and ends up beyond comprehension, hence the smaller is never noted as our small attention spans are drawn towards the greater more noticeable changes. So in the end i find the question of whether or not it is affecting me or another irrelevant.

first off i mean no insult when i say that you mean curve not curb. it is merely the troll within me. but i have had this troll within me (note i do not use quotation marks as i acknowledge it as a very real terminology since it is used by a vast amount of people) since i can remember. The question that should be posed here is not how should we change trolls but better yet should we attempt to change trolls. For within all humans is there not a troll within us all and within those who have a higher capacity to troll is there anything wrong with this? it is an innate instinct for humans to cause unnecessary conflict among one another. Here is the origin of the troll, basic fact, no matter where you go you will find someone who has an opposing mindset, in the case of most trolls it is merely using false and usually unfunny retorts but it remains nonetheless a human condition, other more advanced trolling methods are simple discussions like these on the TED forums i would hope to be able to say that the majority of us on here have a intellectual keenness to us and poke fun at each other (although we do not know each other, we do it for the same cause, this being to impose our beliefs upon someone else) by stating our beliefs/counterarguments. trolls have always existed within humanity and i dare to say it is only due to the advent of the internet that we have discovered just how many trolls there are. The internet has given us the power to survey websites with vast amounts of information. When speaking in terms of a survey you want the biggest possible sample group, where in the 1990's and prior we as a world were stratified by our location hence we could not survey the amount of trolls that existed, and now we have the internet where we have a sample group by the millions if not billions it comes with no doubt that we would find more and more trolls as more and more people gain access to the internet, i ask why change what, most likely, has always existed?

When you download something online- are you the 'owner' of the item- or are you renting it for a period of time?
Seeing as this is a sensitive topic i will try my best to tread lightly. I find simply that one ( and myself for that matter) does not own a product by purchasing it, whilst one can own a copy, which can be used for personal use, one does not legally retain the right to reproduce, re-sell, or upload said software and/or ideas(paintings ,designs ,etc.). This is a rather oddly stated question since it doesn't give much room for discussion as it (to my understanding) asks if you are wrong in assuming that most people don't know this. The question posed does not ask for any moral or ethical pondering nor does it ask whether or not the law is correct in doing so, i am questioning whether this truly is a debate question or more so a poll of sorts.
