Rhymes with 'stroll', it refers to a style of fishing where a baited line is drawn in front of fish hoping that one will bite. The person doing is a troller.

The analogy to a baited message hoping for bites is obvious.

Smartass troll:
"So she stopped singing in the middle of her concert to sign a painting? But how inconsiderate of her! That shows she has no affection for her audience. How did you know they wanted that painting signed? She ruined it, she bastardized the beauty of something someone worked so hard on. It clearly shows how everyone's maturity towers above hers."

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.
