  • Some one that joins a group just to be a jerk for example if some one joined a breast feeding group just to post how much they hate it when people breast feed in public. My husband always says don't feed the trolls meaning if you find one on line do not reply to what they post if you do they stick around.

  • 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.
