  • I don't know what an od is, but a troll is someone that intentionally says things to stir up the bees. They always have something negative to say about everything, and their sole purpose is to start fights and piss people off. Basically a miserable wench with nothing better to do with her time.

  • I'll give you an example:
    "What a stupid question?? Can't you look it up! You are on a computer. What, can't work google?? I feel sorry that you have bred!"
    And then (depending on the subject) they say really outrageous things. "I hope God kills your children!" "I only beat him when he doesn't pick up his room" "Obama IS the anti-christ!!"
    And usually they have ZERO input in the discussion. Many post anon because they are chickenshit.

  • od might mean oldest daughter?

    Anyway, trolls are people who write stuff for the fun of reading people's reactions. They like the attention. That's why people say "don't feed the trolls" it means don't respond to their baiting. They're bullies and just because this is a mom site do not think they are necessarily moms. Teenage kids and older men (moms boyfriends) come to this site out of curiousity very often.

  • People who write things just for a reaction. Attention-starved people looking for conflict so that they can feel that someone, somewhere is paying attention to them.
