A term used to describe people, typically in a lower age range, who attempt to make a nuisance of themselves by acting like an ass and proceeding to used cliched memes such as, but not limited to "Umad, bro?".
The term has aged poorly, comparable to the way MLG has. Trolling (because no one could have known this!) used to refer to intelligent toying with others to incite rage. However, creativity has waned and now the word is known by basically anyone with an internet connection. Monkey see, monkey do.
This has been a public service announcement.

A troll in the sense of an internet troll has many different meanings. Not all trolls go to a message board and spam it with flames, racism, and Goatse
before getting banned 5 minutes later. Trolling is a hobby in the same vein as prank phone calls, and the true objective of trolling is to be clever and creative in getting a reaction out of the troll victims.
Skilled trolls especially like trolling large-scale websites such as MySpace
where it is harder to get banned. Trolling a site such as GameFAQs
is more difficult, as the TOS
is very strict and the moderators are harder on trolls.
Common victims of trolls: liberals
, gay rights activists
, harry potter

Somebody who likes to buy fruit at the local fruit stand. Trolls typically like dragon fruit and pomegranates. Trolls can be identified by the fact that they wear nothing but a green paper plate over their genitals and a red plastic cup on their head. Trolls also have the belief that giraffes do not exist. Do not try to reason with them that they do for they will tear your scapula out with a rusty spoon.
Do you know where I can get some really cheap pomegranates?" "I hear the local troll is selling them way cheaper than the fruit stand.

Troll sat alone on his seat of stone…
A despicable person on a message board that deliberately tries to get everyone pissed off. Usually, they write in capital letters and make outrageous topics to get a rise out of everyone. Many times, trolls will be regulars but cannot be identified because they make new Screen Names, usually these new Screen Names are named after the topic they're trolling about. Either way, trolls should never be responded too, because theyll just use insults or useless arguments, and you'll never win by arguing with a troll.
Don't ever feed the trolls on a message board.
