A Prompting Statement is an encouragement to respond, often phrased as an innocent question, a playful tease, or an outright challenge. It's a derivative of the Socratic Method, which is used effectively by The Masters (Good Trolls) to push The Neophytes into enlightenment. On the Web, the most typical use of the Prompting Statement (by Bad Trolls) is to push newbies into the flames. On this wiki, PromptingStatements are almost always examples of the Socratic Method hard at work.
