I call shenanigans. First, not many 7 year old boys are going to want to play a female toon, most boys that age would find that idea too "girly" and 7 is too young to want to stare at "fine animated backside". Second, the spelling and grammar mistakes look like someone older trying to impersonate the writing abilities of a child, he misspells "diffikult" but gets the much harder to spell "succesful" correct, uses u and you in the same sentence (I would imagine using one or the other thoughout), spells hahah and hahaa and after the latter does the whole !1 as if he let go of shift too soon. Finally, the only people I have ever seen refer to levels as "years" are Roleplayers who are desperately trying to refer to their level in some in-universe-appropriate fashion (I prefer other words, level does not equal age), and I've met young gamers who know exactly what a level is and that the character can be a different age than their level. Overall good "troll" it got mention here so it must have fooled some people.

You got 'successful' wrong though but you're right, it seems like a troll.

How is it a troll, trolls are people who come and post just to be asshats. Also, trolls start in Durotar xP

Baiting is a classic trolling technique sure, but I must say I can't recall ever seeing many 'positive' baiting trolls, mainly because trolls live to cause anger, controversy and/or mayhem.Writing nice and cute and adorable troll posts don't really serve well to achieve that objective...

My 8 year old brother has been playing since he was 6. He's got about 40 alts, but it actually surprises me how many people think he is older than he really is. He can type faster than a lot of adults, and performs very well in dungeons.I don't find this hard to believe at all.
