When you reply to a troll or group of trolls on the internet, usually angrily and while showing signs of being offended.

When you do this, you give the trolls the attention that they crave. You're responding in the way that the troll wants you to respond. You get upset over something that someone posted on the internet.

There are many trolls on this site. Please don't feed the trolls. Send their "definitions" to Quality Control and then ignore them.
J.B. is a poster who kept feeding the trolls over minor issues. Now the trolls run rampant with his username because J.B. kept giving them the attention they wanted.

Feeding the troll is when one replies to a troll in retaliation (usually). If somone feeds a troll, it may get cocky and cause an even bigger problem. The best way to deal with trolls is to report them and let the mods banninate the said troll.

When someone online gives internet trolls the negative reaction they want. This of course is a very bad sign as all the person himself is doing is giving what the troll wants. The best advice to keep in mind would be not feeding the troll at all, simply ignore it, and walk away.
When you're feeding the trolls, you're basically falling under their trap. They want you to get offended and worked up about something. Think of it as feeding your evil wolf, the more you feel angry, offended and hateful, the more power you're feeding that evil wolf inside of you (this is of course a reference to the famous Native American tale Two Wolves).

At least show some respect for youraelf and don't give any trolls the offended reaction they so desperately want in the first place.
