troll (Internet slang)

I. Noun (plural, trolls)

1. A person who posts to annoy, irritate or generally be off topic.

2. Traditionally used as in deploying benign harassment for the purposes of indoctrinating a noob into a message board by establishing the group norms through contrast.

3. In the modern sense, it has come to be synonymous with "a*shole."

II. Verb ('Net slang "to troll")
to offer up bogus statements meant to provoke a fight online

DISAMBIGUATION
NOT to be confused with TRAWL (fishing term, verb) to drag for, either in fishing or online...
Jackie was such a troll back on that usenet; that noob didn't even recognize she was being ironic. Maybe next time Sam will see it and laugh.

Sam is learning, but he acts as such a troll and stirs up so much controversy on the abortion boards it is a real turnoff to me.

Sam's page got trolled (verb, past tense) by those kids, and it made me crack up because he's so uptight, and they made him look slow and loser-ish by comparison.

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.

As an added bonus, the person sitting under the table may shout "FEE FI FO FUM" intermittently.

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.
I caught a fine Big Mouth Bass with a troll.
