    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 a desired emotional response[1] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[2] In addition to the offending poster, the noun troll can also refer to the provocative message itself, as in "that was an excellent troll you posted". While the term troll and its associated action trolling are primarily associated with Internet discourse, media attention in recent years has made such labels highly subjective, with trolling being used to describe intentionally provocative actions outside of an online context.

  • Questions asked to stir up drama. Usually are unreasonable of just plain stupid. Example: How do I know if he Cummed in me? or Is it okay to bath my 12 year old daughter and my 14 year old son together?

  • Someone who starts problems or the post is obviously fake and is only made to start drama. Like the one in the Most Bumps about young moms being stupid. That is a troll post

  • Trolls are people who just come into groups to be jerks. It's fun for the narsissic people who are bored.
