Default Definition of a Troll?

Not familiar with this term, or forums in general, hell got this " smart phone " and sometimes its smarter than me I'm sure. From what I've read trolls are disliked and just want to make sure I am not doing anything that would categorize me as such... shoebie,,, yes, troll, ,,,,I hope not. Thnxs in advance.

It's someone who posts with the intention of starting s**t.

It's someone who has nothing to contribute to the site.

It's usually teenagers who have grown tired of making trouble on FB, Myspace and Twitter and lack adult supervision.

A troll is a person that posts inflamatory stuff to provoke a negative reaction.

For example, someone posts pics of their rifle and a troll will post how stupid that person is for buying that gun...

Just one example of how trolls work. Most is much more subtle and takes a while to determine the pattern of trolling.

Wow are you serious thats not even close to how a troll works. You obviously dont know what your talking about.

That is how a troll works.^^ Someone that insults, acts better/smarter than everyone or just dosent have anything for the forum and likes to argue or start problems.

Sorry for using you for my example jon but i figued it would be a good way to show him

Your such an idiot for not knowing what a troll is....



For all intents and purpose, nice word for @$$ hole.
