Someone who is purposefully posting on a forum/messageboard/site sith the sole aim to irritate the regular members.

Contrary to popular belief there is much more to internet trolling than posting "OMG UR ALL SO GHEYYYY!!!1" "OMFG TRIVIUM SUX ASS U FAGS LOL" and the like. People who post such things will usually be one-post wonders and get banned, however the more experienced troll will attempt to cause some sort of havoc under the admins radar.

Common examples of trolling:
The long-term troll:
These guys don't mind waiting around for the fun to begin. They may pretend to be an average n00b, and give themselves the stereotyical interest(s) of the average member of said forum, then once having a few posts they will gradually try to spread dissent. This type may even pretend to be pally to the admin and get their msn (and try to crack their account password of course) whilst causing general disruption. May act under other proxies and slate these fake trolls on msn to the aforementioned gullible admin. These people, to be frank, usually have no life and love bringing message boards to their knees by putting considerable time into their carnage. If they crack the admins password the board is doomed.

The sophisticated troll:
This type will usually have some sort of distaste for whatever the said message board is discussing and try to cause annoyance as opposed to destructiveness. They will parody the members and see how much they can get over their heads. Subtle pisstaking being their route. They'll usually get banned in the end but will annoy an entire community using this drawn out approach.

The faker troll:
A clever troll, the main aim of the game is to, ironically, act really REALLY stupid, this trolls aim is to argue with members incoherantly, usually using text speak. This is a ploy, the troll only needs to spend 10 seconds writing the babble when the member wastes 10 minutes writing a much more wordy reply. The troll will reply with a stupid rebuff making the member post as many long replies as possible. Using the members weight against them and wasting their forum time... If they are good then their act will be believable and they probably won't get banned unless the admin is strict on txt tlk.

The rank and file spammer:
These are the first to pop into peoples minds, they are similar to the examples stated in the first paragraph. No previous experience necessary, this lot will swarm in, again, usually under proxies to maximise the destructiveness, and spam the place to hell. Only causes mild irritation if not in large numbers.

Join any popular forum for a year and I guarantee you'll see all of these.
(let's assume it's a metal board)

Faker troll (expecting to cause irritation):
"Hi im nu here u all seem kl i am rly metal rawrrr i leik slipnot and fall out boys!!!1 they r so metal! see u al on da forum xxx"

Rank and File spammer:
"LOOOOL U METAL PPL R SO GHEY WITH UR SHOUTY MUSIC WRIST SLITTING ANIMAL FUCKING SATAN SHIIIT"

A person who posts things on some online community setting that are designed to purposefully assault and offend large numbers of people for no reason other than the Troll's bias against them, hatred for them or personal amusement at annoying them.

Smartass troll:

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."

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.

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.
