    Good old Wikipedia..

    An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial and usually irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the intention of baiting other users into an emotional response[1] or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion.[2]........la

    The trouble with looking for trolls on this board is 90% of posts are
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the 'board pvp' people indulge in here?
    So we just have to try to weed out the
    and make sure the 'on topic' minor trolls don't slip into getting personal

    Of course when you identify a poster who habitually posts in this manner, everyone can simply deny him/her the response he/she is seeking and either ignore the post or respond in a logical, mild and reasonable manner instead.

    True... but, that would mean people would actually be accountable for their own actions... on both ends of the stick.

    On this board

    A troll is anyone who continuously attempts to bait an individual or group outside of the appropriate threads... imho.

    As long as we can do this to Rico, does it really matter if we can define troll or not?

    90% of this population troll or break RoC(which isnt hard/catch 22 per se)...

    So...in closing 90% SP population is 100-90%=10 ppl arent trolls...which means this place would even be more dead if we all got banned for trolling...

    Someone who habitually posts multiple replys of 3 words or less in the same thread. For another example me just going thrugh all the threads and posting a related picture just to be cute/funny or boost my post count.

    So first of all came the youngest Billy Goat Gruff to cross the bridge.

    "Trip, trap, trip, trap! " went the bridge.

    "Who's that tripping over my bridge?" roared the troll .

    "Oh, it is only I, the tiniest Billy Goat Gruff , and I'm going up to the hillside to make myself fat," said the billy goat, with such a small voice.

    "Now, I'm coming to gobble you up," said the troll.

    "Oh, no! pray don't take me. I'm too little, that I am," said the billy goat. "Wait a bit till the second Billy Goat Gruff comes. He's much bigger."

    "Well, be off with you," said the troll.

    A troll - I always thought it was type of lure used for in-motion fishing? I've always wanted to try it from my kayak!

    LOL with a lure like that the fish you are likely to catch would be a fight... in a kayak... (grin)
