    Certainly a reasonable question.

    I have friends on social media from family, business, and faith arenas, some of whom I only know casually. So, I do nothing there I wouldn't do in a public setting. I say nothing there I wouldn't publicly announce. I consider social media somewhat of an accountability partner. If I have to think it through before posting it, I think everyone wins.
    Probably using different definitions of social media. I consider message boards social media too. My real name is limited to light snark.

    I consider message boards to be social media, as well. But whatever name you're using, you're still representing Christ. So, I defer to Catholicity's question. How does spewing hate glorfy God?

    Since I am determined to let Catholicity sputter her hypocrisy to herself I must decline from answering the question.
    "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Isaiah 3:12

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    I think baiting people to try and get them all upset is just as bad as spewing hate. Just sayin'.

    I hang out in the Unbelievable? Facebook group, although I'm considering giving it up as a waste of time. It's the Facebook group for a popular British radio show where theists and atheists debate. One of the things I've been thinking about is how some (not all) of the Christians on there blatantly troll. Sockpuppetry, making outrageous statements once one is getting the worse of an argument, making lewd jokes, and the like. While I recognize that converting the hardened atheists on there is going to be unlikely, I have to wonder about the ethics of some of this. On the other hand, Jesus did make statements that riled people up. Is there a line between trolling and wise discourse? Where is that line?

    Ummm....I'm pretty Sure St. James addressed the idea of taming the tongue. So participation in this

    Is covered in James 1:26 and James 3. What comes out of our mouths should be pure.

    Case by case basis, though I can't think of any context where a lot of the things you listed can be permissable.

    Trolling is making outrageous claims that you don't believe yourself just to get reactions (any reaction) so you can sit back and laugh at all the "rubes" and how you are messing with them.
