[NEEDS INPUT] Excessive autonomous "troll teh forums" action

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Pro

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Backyard SP, Cool Kitchen SP, Fitness SP
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? play a household with a computer
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims will autonomously "troll teh forums". a lot.
What do you expect to see? this action not happening so often.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

Sims will choose to interact with the computer, most of the time, by "trolling teh forums". this isn't related to low fun/traits/lack of objects to interact with, as far as i can see.

Sims will Troll teh Forums autonomously (probably caused by Geek trait)

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

I made a thread on The Sims' Forums where Sims, even with the Good trait, will always Troll autonomously. I'm believing that the Geek trait causes Sims to Troll autonomously because Jennifer has the Geek trait as seen in this screenshot. Only she does it while the others do not. I'm not sure if it's a bug but I'm reporting this just in case, it has been occurring since 2014 possibly since the Pools Update.

 

I know it makes sense for Evil Sims to Troll autonomously but I find it inappropriate for Good Sims to Troll the Forums. I don't think that there is a mod to prevent Trolling but I know there might be a mod to disable auto Computer use.

Really unsure if this is a bug or a design choice.

 

Let me see if I can find out more.

I'm really unsure if this is a bug. I think it be the Geek trait plus low Social and Fun that might lead to Sims wanting to Troll, only Jennifer does it. This still remains in version 1.9.

It would be good if you bump old open thread that aren't using the bug template, that you could make a new one and refer to the old so I can merge the old into the new.
