Signs that questions here or on advice-giving subreddits are fake?

I know that sometimes people send fake questions to advice columnists or post fake questions here or on relevant subreddits, but I've never suspected that any given question is fake. I think some of you are good are spotting potential fakes. What things tip you off that a given question is fake?

Trolling videos?

I am trying to find some good videos (perhaps on YouTube) on avoiding cyberbullying/trolling which are suitable for an older kid. YouTube search just pulls up a hodgepodge of videos, news reports, pointless amateur clips, and so on. Ideally what I'd like is a Yogscast (from Minecraft fame) type of presentation where experienced gamers talk about how to recognize trolling behavior, how to keep others from pushing your buttons, and why it's pointless to engage or retaliate. Parenting and supervision is working to a certain extent, but maybe a video is out there that would help drive the point home. The trolling has been happening mainly on Roblox and Playstation Network.

A friend recently owned up to being an internet troll. He claims not to understand what he gets out of it. His techniques are baiting, manipulating, feigning innocence, and never getting mad. What makes trolls tick and is it curable? [more inside]
