A task troll is someone with a limited understanding of a discussion yet maintains their authority by sending opponents on spurious and pointless tasks in order to evade engagement in the discussion. An aura of superiority can be achieved with little or no substantial credibility. It may "buy time" or lead to one's opponent being exhausted after doing the heavy work.
The task troll wasn't sure how to respond in our debate so he asked me to read five particular academic papers and report back. I doubt he's read even a single paper among thousands that deal with this matter.
