  • I guess someone who posts things for the purpose of starting drama- something I see nothing wrong with by the way. It's fun...

  • In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response[1] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[2]
