  • 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.

  • It can actually mean a couple different things. 1) is someone who posts just to cause drama, no real purpose. 2) it can be someone that simply comes out to troll the top waters, or someone who is just fishing for quick information because they are too lazy to find it for themselves.
