con-troll. Attribute for systems that are able to live with trolls in relative harmony (similar to troll-friendly).

This is a kind of language-wisdom: con is derived from latin cum (with), so this means "with the trolls", troll-friendly. The trailing "l" has been lost somewhere in history. The correct usage is obviously "to share con-troll" or "to live con-troll".

The notion of "control" is a pervertion of the original "controll". Harmony is displaced by dominance. "Sharing controll" (the ability of friendly communication and tolerance) has been perverted to "having control". See also: uncontrollable.
