  • lol! Dora.

    A 'troll' is a really really annoying jerk that comes on here just to stir up crap. It's a term used all over the internet, not just on CafeMom. They like to annoy people and piss people off. Usually, they disappear just as quickly as they appear.

    You usually can tell if someone's a troll by looking at their profile. Do they have any info, any friends, anything about them? Or is their profile totally blank? Trolls usually start blank profiles just to start crap, but end up getting caught and banned, so they just start up another blank profile under a different name and start more crap.

    But yeah, that's pretty much what a troll is. A mean, rude, annoying, jerkoff of a person that likes to piss people off just for shits and giggles.

  • A lot of them post anonymous as if they don't have the balls to do it in person. They start up controveral subjects such as abortion, breastfeeding, etc and cut down people for their decisions.
