The following is the unbiased accurate definition of trolls as defined by internet society.

1. Trolls (n.) – the most important and integral part of networked society. The largest, most effective, devoutly objective, chaotically neutral, uniform and selfless autonomous collective to ever grace existence as an order of peace, stability and power. A collective that does not require self-awareness. The last true charitable organization, where every action is one that does not serve the cause of advancement, personal gain, discrimination or betterment. And… the only defense we have against ourselves.

2. Troll (n.) - one who upsets another without reason or direct personal comments.

3. Troll (n.) - the only effective defense against internet tough guys and the spread of ITGS (SEE: Internet Tough Guy Syndrome)
Tom - "Hey Jim, if it wasn't for these damn trolls maybe we could actually enjoy this online game."

Jim - "Tom buddy, if it weren't for trolls people would never raise awareness of this online game's shortcomings and promote the cause for the betterment of all online gaming. But yeah that guy was an asshole, lets go play something else."

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.
