What is a "TROLL"

Am I a Troll?

Please explain to me what a troll is, just in case I don’t know what a troll is.

How does one lose the title of "TROLL”?

Very often people mistake as trolls individuals who haven't yet discovered Google.

Ok now!

I asked because it seems this board uses the term a little different than I am use to.

An internet "troll" is usually someone who delights in creating
drama, or illiciting controversy in internet forums.

A topic more suited for the General discussion area here.

Just go to threads started by SinCityCycler - he's got trolling down to a science.

I thought about posting this in the General discussion area, but I was more interested in the opinion of the folks that live here.

And of course it is more controversial if I post it here.

When you say creating drama and eliciting controversy, do you mean like correcting some one spelling constantly, or constantly telling people to use google

Or do you mean like I just did with the above question?

I guess I need to find a support group. Is there a Trolls Anonymous, or something that I can join?

Awww, my wittle dancer from Lansing, I wuv you too.
But when it comes to trolling, Sin is the best in BF - I'm barely a novice. Indeed, how many threads have I ever started in BF? I bet less than 20 in the last year. I'm not a troll...ILTB hit the nail on the head a long time ago...I'm da Klass Klown!

Nah... Trolls are witty and smart, and are able to incite violence between others while standing safely off to one side to enjoy the show.

A select number of posters we get here just want attention. They yell at everyone, everyone yells back and throws rotten produce at them. I guess any kind of attention at all is good enough for some folks. They take all the sport out of trolling. What's the fun in starting an argument when some lonely drunk won't shut up?
