I know it's a stupid question.......

What is a troll? I see it often in the posts and have no idea what it is. Thanks in advance!

  • No question is stupid on here :)

    A troll is someone who post things to purposely cause drama

  • The only question that is stupid is the question that isn't asked.

  • someone looking to cause trouble or just get a rise out of people

    Not everyone accused of being a troll is one, tho. Someotimes people just don't like the question the OP posted and assume things.

  • Someone who trips into places like cafemom (and email lists, bbs, etc.) and throws out topics, questions and even answers designed to inflame conversation. They like stirring up shit and getting people at each other's throats.

    Lots of sites and email lists have DFTT rules --which stands for Don't Feed The Trolls.
