Default Trolling posts

Why do trolling posts get way more responses then the non trolling ones?

That's what they are designed for. It's inherent.

THIS

When you say something controversial, of course people are going to want to fight you. When you say something everyone just nods along with, there's not a ton to say about it.

Controversial doesn't mean trolling, though.

There's no right or wrong answer, it's just your opinion

Because responding to a serious post asking for advice means that you could be partially responsible (at least indirectly) for someone making a decision they regret later... and you have to actually come up with something useful to say

Antagonizing trolls has very few (if any) consequences, and is usually more entertaining.
