A troll is a person living under the bridge Lower Peninsula of Michigan http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lower_Peninsula_of_Michigan

Quote:
The Lower Peninsula has been nicknamed "The Mitten", "Below the Bridge", and occasionally "The L.P." (in parallel with "the U.P." for the Upper Peninsula). Residents of the Lower Peninsula are jokingly referred to as "Trolls" by residents of the Upper Peninsula, because they live "under the bridge".[1]
A Yooper lives above the Bridge. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yooper_dialect

Actually it's the same thing as trolling in a discussion forum. The troll throws out his bait and hopes some sucker bites. Then he patiently reels them in. The more bites he gets, the better day he has.

And then they seem to always start with the personal attacks...like calling your granny fat, calling you a rich boy (not like that's a bad thing, I wish I had money), insulting your intelligence, implying that you screw your sister, etc., etc., ad nauseum.

The pseudo-official definition:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_(Internet)

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[4] The noun troll may refer to the provocative message itself, as in: "That was an excellent troll you posted".
While the word troll and its associated verb trolling are associated with Internet discourse, media attention in recent years has made such labels subjective, with trolling describing intentionally provocative actions and harassment outside of an online context. For example, mass media has used troll to describe "a person who defaces Internet tribute sites with the aim of causing grief to families."[5][6]

It was mentioned that the younger ones tend to troll more, or something like that. My experiences have been that the worst trolls have not been kids. Quite the opposite.

I didn't know unicorns were covered with glitter. Learned something new today.
