  • According to Urban Dictionary:

    "One who purposely and deliberately (that purpose usually being self-amusement) starts an argument in a manner which attacks others on a forum without in any way listening to the arguments proposed by his or her peers. He will spark of such an argument via the use of ad hominem attacks (i.e. 'you're nothing but a fanboy' is a popular phrase) with no substance or relevence to back them up as well as straw man arguments, which he uses to simply avoid addressing the essence of the issue. "

    The CafeMom equivalent would be evil bitchy anonymous people who start questions or answer questions just to inflame others and start drama :D

  • To add to the previous poster, a troll is someone who lurkes the boards and causes problems just because.

  • haha dont feel bad i had to ask my DH the same thing. it is someone who goes to a post or question just to bash or make drama. they are "trolling" for trouble. its like someone who joins a twilight lovers group just to say its the stupidest book ever.

    Its usually also someone who might come into a group lets say about politics and have a different point of view and start fighting with ppl. Or going into a Christian group and being an Athiest and just wanted to cause drama. Trolls also spam things over and over, like post it group to group, question section to section and are usually sad pathetic little people with no life and they get attention this way.
