# Mooooore-NING! Help us choose the new Question of the Week
Here we go again with the weekly QOTW vote. Vote now! Vote often!

Text message rage: Drunken texting? Auto-correct woe? TELL US

Four minute warning: What would you do - apart from have an enormous wank - if the sirens went off?

Food fight: Kitchen disasters, culinary tales and actual food fights

Tactless: Tactless is my middle name, you know (Lie. It's Michael)

I thought nobody was looking: Because what the world needs is a collection of stories about people picking their nose on the bus. I'm not really selling this one, am I?

Racist Grandparents: Fuck it, we like this one, but it didn't win last week. Tell us about old people who are naughty and a little bit out of order

The majority of people on this board couldn't care less about /qotw. You clearly care deeply about it, and people find that goading you into primary school comebacks ("no, you're upset!") is more entertaining than actually reading any of the answers. Thanks!

If you wish to imagine it as a seething cauldron of upset, when it looks to me that you're the only one who's at all worked up about any of it, be my guest. Whatever floats your boat, I suppose.

# Oh dear, you're really not very good at this trolling lark, are you?
The "NOT UPSET" response is a useful tool, but it's one of the biggest trolling cliches and is best used sparingly. You've fatally overused it in this thread. It's also backfiring because, as I said before, you seem to be the only one who's actually upset.

The point of trolling is that you're supposed to wind other people up, not yourself. You should ask wormulus for some advice, he's very good at this kind of thing: gaz him a link to this thread and he could probably give you a few pointers in how to troll properly.
