We can tell Tony is a troll because he keeps masturbating at his computer games and screaming into the microphone "u mad bro?".

Basically, if you're an idiot, they're the people on the internet that try to aggravate you. This mostly happens to Justin Bieber fans, horny girls and guys on omegle, and idiots in general. Either that, or the troll just has too much time on their hands and trolls any random person for shits and giggles.
Stranger: m/20/california surfer with ton of tattoos, willing to share pics.

Troll: Cool story bro.

An older gay male, usually over 35 or so, who hits on younger guys who aren't interested in him. When they tell him they aren't interested, the troll will often flip out and get angry. Trolls are not just something seen in chat rooms but can be found just about anywhere people hang out/gather. Many trolls are secretly into underage guys but don't talk about it unless they are talking to another troll who is into the same thing, or if they are talking one-on-one with an underage guy.
Some guys are perpetually undeservedly hit on by nothing but trolls. Just because I like classic rock doesn't mean I want to date somebody my dad's age. Get over it.
