  • "In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts 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 or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion." Wikipedia... Basically just an annoying person that has WAY to much free time and not enough friends.

  • A perfect example:
    Oh and trolling will get you banned on here so I would not do what this person did because even if you are anon cafe mom knows who you are.
