  • 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.

  • But it's weird because I see people calling other people a troll when it just seems they are trying to break the tension with humor. It like other people just want to fight.

  • Some people do just wanna fight just cause they wanna take their bad day out on a bunch of strangers on the internet or because they're just plain losers.
