No Troll Here
- Greetings Good Gentles;
We are Constables not Trolls. Troll is a cutsy term I don't really mind it but it suggests that we don't work at anything other than steal opps taking your money. We do alot more than the Front Gate duties.
The place where you pay is the Gate or Front Gate and most often for me it is also the Constable's Point. Best place to find me.
Thank you for your indulgence with my clearifications.

- Personally, I find it highly offensive.
I am a person, and a Lady, I have not, nor do I ever plan to sit
under a bridge and exhort money.
I am a lady who donates her time to autocratting, helping other
offices, and working the constabulary. To infer that I am a mythical
creature, and an inherently ugly and unethical one, is very insulting
and disrespectful to me.
Although when people use the term with me, I feel sorry for them,
they are likened to the people who run through the SCA dressed as
satyrs, fairies, and other whimsical creatures, along with the ladies
who think chain mail or fur bikinis are period... - I just assume
they dont' "get it" or are from out of kingdom where it is
acceptable. As a frequent autocrat I would never insult those
constables who work with me in such a manner, it would be unthinkable.
However, although I am well spoken on this issue, which is, as you
can tell, a hot button with me, I have never jumped down someone for
doing it...just forgiven them as you would a child caught picking
their nose in public. Just because they don't have the sense to know
how ridiculous and insulting they sound does not mean I should lower
myself to their level by being publicly offronted.
The ONLY reason you are getting this explanation out of me at this
time...is simply....because you asked.
