  • It's someone on here that is just trying to get everyone riled up! They post stupid questions, like "Is it OK to smoke pot in front of my baby?". They also make very rude comments to very serious questions, trying to make the mom feel bad.

  • 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.

  • I think 9 times out of 10, on this site anyway, it's a man who gets his jollies by watching a bunch of women get into a cat fight over something he said, since he gets NO attantion from women in real life. You know the type! The ones who still live in the basement at their mommies and spend all day on a computer.
