  • 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.

  • People who others assume are fake members..

    They live for drama & only post questions to be out of the ordinary.. very weird questions.

  • I always picture a troll with bright pink hair, sitting in front of a computer, under a bridge when I see them say it too.

  • LOL doll with crazy hair.. great answer.

    Usually people call others trolls when they post questions that seem like they are just there to start drama or make people say, "Wow, you're an idiot."
