1) A person who without substance of argument engages in inflamatory debate in an online forum for the purpose of causing disruption and anger in others, usually for their own amusement.

2) A person or group of persons who expresses an opinion different to the majority in the selected forum. These people, despite possible evidence based arguments, are labled troll as a dismissive measure, so that the majority is not forced to confront an opinion they do not agree with.
1) Anybody who had to look up this definition is an idiot.

2) Troll: I present fact1, fact2, and fact3 in evidence to support my argument that your opinion of the economic state of the US is inaccurate and based on sensationalist media bullshit.

Term that originally referred to internet forum posters who attempted to disrupt good conversation with inflammatory rhetoric. Now used primarily as an insult by real trolls aimed at those making arguments the other forum members don't like.

Although many forum admins won't allow name-calling, members often get around this rule by throwing around the troll ad hominem excessively.
RedState - The supreme court just ended freedom as we know it by passing government run healthcare.
MisterReason - The Supreme Court is not capable of "passing" bills. The PPACA is not a government run healthcare proposal. All healthcare will still be privately run.
DixieChic - Who let the troll in the door?
TheGipper - Someone ban this troll

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.

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.

The meaning of troll has spiraled into being some douche who makes people rage. What being a troll really is is doing something funny that will make many people mad yet, making even more people laugh.
