  • An Internet troll is someone who posts offensive, controversial, or divisive material on an Internet community. Trolls are an unfortunately common occurrence on many communities across the Internet, and there are various steps which can be taken to combat them. If you are currently struggling with an Internet troll, the best thing to do is to walk away, since trolls feed on attention, and they will usually disappear if they are ignored.

  • Some on who posts things on here knowing it will start drama or they know will offend someone. They tend to be people hung up on one topic. They can be anon but many use a screen name. Sweet A Kins, PS Wifey and Older come to mind as people with screen names that are one topic people that only post on controversial topics and usually try to escalate the drama.

  • A troll is someone who comes into a topic and disrupts the thread to cause drama, and anon the defenition doesn't apply to people who post controversial comments, this is what a debate is founded on, otherwise this section would be quite boring! It is the people who cause the drama on those controversial topics, not the people who post it. The drama comes when you find someone who disagrees with you and to defend your side you offend and insult and personally attack the opposing view.
