What is an Internet Troll?
I've come across this term and an unsure what it means. Can some one enlighten me?
A person whose sole purpose in life is to seek out people to argue with on the internet over extremely trivial issues. These arguments happen on blogs, Facebook, and even Twitter. Ignore them, or report them. It's the best way to get rid of them.
You've come to the right place.. I'm the troll king, my name is David Bowie.. At least that is what I say when someone calls me a troll.. But the name is thrown out at practically anyone who is saying something that is creative, seemingly out of place, some think intentionally to upset others.. Usually when others lose control of a situation and someone seems to be taking over, that person taking over is called a "Troll". This would be the same sort of person that might run out naked on a field in a baseball game or a soccer game, an unexpected distraction, that seemingly ruins the situation or makes it more interesting. But when some who desire control loses it, they will sometimes yell "troll", even if there is none present. You will find trolls on chat servers, in message boards, in video game servers, radio shows, telephone calls, prancing across the background of a news telecaster, the scruffy haired guy with a beard in the movie "ghost busters" who rubs his chin in the news broadcast could be called a troll, or anywhere someone can reside and interact with others or be seen/heard.. Which is pretty much anyone that is interrupting the context of any situation, is a troll.. And vegetarianism inspired the worst movie in history "Troll 2", you just got trolled.. LOLOLOL
An internet troll is someone who deliberately trashes other people's articles, comments or internet content just for "fun", by leaving disrespectful, abusive or controversial feedback or comments. They may engage in long and pointless arguments or just leave stupid comments. Sometimes it is harmless, and some people may be able to see the funny side of it, but at other times it can be extremely annoying, very hurtful and even potentially harmful. I have encountered one or two on HubPages who start up silly arguments on the forums. At least we have the choice to "approve" comments left on our hubs, so we have some control over what appears. I really haven't got time for people with nothing better to do than upset others.
From my understanding, it just means someone who actively seeks out opportunities to stir up trouble, say things just to upset people and get them incensed, and enjoys it.
