TROLL

ok i have been on this site for awhile now and i have a question...
i see alot of questions that people post on here and i cant figure out one thing...
what makes someone a troll? i have seen alot of people say it when people post anon, but i see it when they post under their name as well, so i know its not that, i have seen people say it with all types of questions, so what is the common factor?

    What Is A Troll?


    The term derives from "trolling", a style of fishing which involves trailing bait through a likely spot hoping for a bite. The troll posts a message, often in response to an honest question, that is intended to upset, disrupt or simply insult the group.


    Usually, it will fail, as the troll rarely bothers to match the tone or style of the group, and usually its ignorance shows.

  • A troll is someone who posts something just to start drama.

  • Yeah, it's just someone that's out to get attention by starting something they know will rile people up.

  • It is usually someone whom starts a post just for the drama or a person who starts to attack another in a post and 99.9% of the time the Troll/posts/ comments are all made by someone hiding behind the Anon button...
