Being a douche on the internet because you can. Typically unleashing one or more cynical or sarcastic remarks on an innocent by-stander, because it's the internet and, hey, you can. The art of deliberately, cleverly, and secretly pissing people off, usually via the internet, using dialogue. Trolling does not mean just making rude remarks: Shouting swear words at someone doesn't count as trolling; it's just flaming, and isn't funny.
Wow you're trolling again, doesn't surprise me.

Please stop trolling.

Trolling is simple yet has a few different forms:

This is the form thats missing from most definitions:

Deliberately acting as if you dont know about a subject matter and getting the other person to tell you about it. This is done to antagonize the other person. While a 3rd party laughs about it and you and the 3rd person know that you're familiarized with the subject matter.
