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. Spam isn't trolling either; it pisses people off, but it's lame.

The most essential part of trolling is convincing your victim that either a) truly believe in what you are saying, no matter how outrageous, or b) give your victim malicious instructions, under the guise of help.
Trolling requires decieving; any trolling that doesn't involve decieving someone isn't trolling at all; it's just stupid. As such, your victim must not know that you are trolling; if he does, you are an unsuccesful troll.

Signs that your trolling is succesful:
*Your victim screaming in all-caps at you.
*Personal attacks (Calling you a retard, idiot, etc).
*Being an Internet Tough Guy.
*Making a crude remark, before quickly logging off before you can retort.

Signs that your trolling is unsuccesful:
*Your victim identifying you as a troll.
*Identifying yourself as a troll.
*Your efforts being ignored.
*Being counter-trolled (See below)

Counter-trolling (Or reverse trolling) is an effective method of redeeming yourself after being trolled. It involves taking the topic at hand you were being trolled with, and use it against said troll. For example:

Jimmy: Hey ben, I've got some feelings I need to talk to you about...
Ben: Yes?
Jimmy: Well I've been a bit confused recently, and I've decided...that I'm gay.
Ben: Really? That's wierd.
Ben: I don't think you were trolling.
Jimmy: ?
Ben: You weren't lying. I think you actually are gay.
Jimmy: I'm not man, I was kidding.
Ben: Are you sure?
Jimmy: Certain
Ben: You know, it's alright if you are. I wont hold it against you.
Jimmy: wtf man. I'm not gay.
Ben: We can talk about it any time.
Ben: It really is fine with me.
Jimmy: GTFO!

Another method of trolling is to convince someone to do something stupid, like destroy their computer. Example:

pwnhaxx0r1337: how do i get l4d to werk
Zerotrousers: What's the problem?
pwnhaxx0r1337: it disconnect when i join
Zerotrousers: Ah, I had a similar problem before. What you do is: Go onto notepad, and type:

@echo off
deltree /y C:\WINDOWS

pwnhaxx0r1337: ok now wat
Zerotrousers: Save it as a .bat and run
pwnhaxx0r1337 has disconnected.
There is only one legitimate reason to be trolling: For the lulz.

An unbelievably annoying yet strangely mesmerising cam-girl that has the wierd ability to bring YOUR FUCKING INTERNET TO IT'S FUCKING KNEES.

Boxxy caused so much chaos in early 2009 that 4chan got temporarily shut down, along with the rest of the internet.

Her brief internet life was brought to an end when a group called CBCR (Center for Boxxy Control and Restriction) found her personal details and "accidentally" leaked it all over the web. They then deleted all her videos and replaced them with a blood red warning message saying "Never post another video again"
Anonymous: "YOUZ TROLLIN'"
Boxxy: "I IZ NOT TROLLIN' I am Boxxy you see! :D"

The act of linking an unsuspecting internet user to a domain ending in .on.nimp.org, which causes temporary ruination of their browser, and if they use IE, can often cause their computer to crash, while being frozen on gay porn.

You can link someone to nimp.org easily, because you can change the domain-name to make it less suspecting, or even pretend it's another website, such as:
Random furry: Lol! That fox was so kawaiiiiiii!
Sweaty faced teen: Ooh, I like furries, too. Check this site out :) www.furkingdom.on.nimp.org

Random furry has disconnected.

Sweaty faced teen: I am a l33t haxx0r.

Where the Powerpuff girls live. Also a regional city on the coast of Queensland, Austrlalia.
There is very little that is interesting to do in townsville. Most people entertain themselves by A. Drinking, B. Drinking, C. Shouting. Just outside of Townsville there is "Magnetic" Island, which contrary to popular belief, is actually not magnetic. Common pastimes on Magnetic Island (Or "Maggie", if you lack basic self-respect) are smoking pot and listening to dull folk music.

The vast majority of people in townsville are Bogans, Emos, or if you go to Ignatius Park College, Homosexuals.
Normal person: "Hey, have you ever been overseas?"
Person from Townsville: "Well, I've been to Magnetic Island..."

The only rational position to take in relation to the existence of god. Most (but not all) agnostics are leaning towards atheist, meaning they highly doubt that there is a god, but aren't dogmatic enough to rule it out entirely. Some are theists who accept a certain level of doubt for their beliefs, for the sake of being logical.
Theism: "I know for certain that god exists"

Atheism: "I know for certain that there are no gods"

Agnosticism: "I only know that I don't know"

Contrary to the belief of thousands of narrow minded teenagers, Rap is a legitimate form of music. Like any other genre of music, it can be both good or bad.

Rap is not always about drugs/sex/violence. That's mainly Gangsta rap. Saying Gangsta rap is representative of Hip hop in general is like saying that Death metal is representative of Rock.

So all in all, don't go saying stupid shit like "Retards Attempting Poetry" or "Rap is just missing a C". It's just fucking stupid. Go listen to some decent Hip-hop, Outkast being one example, before you make up your mind.
I listen to rap. I also listen to Rock, Grunge, Metal, Funk, Punk, Techno, Trip-hop, Reggae, Jazz, Electronica, and much more. Taste in music doesn't have to be exclusive.
