Troll - someone who says something just to get a knee jerk reaction and attention for themselves.

Good example is going into say the Road Forum and posting that a MTB makes a better road ride.
Also typically a troll will make the one post and then never post in the thread again.

A troll can also be someone that asks an obvious question to attract attention to themselves. For example, someone who posts the question "What is a troll?"

HAHAHAHA! You know, Stacey, that would make a good signature line.

Actually, you had no idea how hard it was for me to post that with all the misspellings.

Oh, back to troll... it actually comes from the fishing verb, trolling.

I troll, you troll, he/she/it trolls, we troll, you (pl) troll, they troll.

I hope this thread never ends!

To answer your original question, Shortrider, A. Troll is someone who is always asking all the hot guys "Hey, handsome? Wanna be my boyfriend??"



By the way, Shortrider06, how short ARE you??
