Posting a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup, mailing list, message board, or other electronic community with the intention of garnering attention, gaining personal notoriety, goading others into angry responses, causing disruption, and/or inciting argument.
"But, Marti, it's so much fun to goad you people on."

"You know, the only reason I continue to post on this topic is because I
cannot express an opinion without being attacked in a vituperative and
hostile manner. It's sort of like poking a stick at a hornet nest."

"Telling me go F* myself will not stop the conversation. It only escalates it."

Someone who posts nothing of substance to try and strike up emotional responses instead of true discussion or debate, usually because they haven't the intelligence or facts to engage in such discussion or debate. Phrases typically used by a troll are usually found between sentences where they state what little they know and add their attacks (i.e. "Suck it!", "Fail!", "You fail!"). Trolls are generally weak-minded people with a strong motivation to bring everyone down to their crude level of thinking. They seek out topics of the greatest controversy and try to infuriate anyone they can. The only way to deal with a troll is to delete his ass and ignore him. Beware some trolls have their own web sites where other trolls are permitted to operate. These troll havens are easily spotted, because no comments or posts are moderated.
Trolls may say in their comments or posts things like:

"Suck it!", "Fail!", "You fail!"

A person who is more or less 'fail' most or all of the time. This level of failness can likely be attributed to lack of social skills. Lesser qualities include the occasional consumption of billy goat gruffs, as well as consuming large amounts of alchohol which only increases the amount of failness which the troll distributes. One can only be as much of a troll that is warranted by the amount of failness.
Justin, you can't just ask that female if you may "grab her boobs". And quit drinking all of my beer you fucking troll.
