I thought this would be appropriate since there has been some contraversy about what a troll really is.

A troll is...

"...someone who intentionally posts derogatory or otherwise inflammatory messages about sensitive topics in an established online community such as an online discussion forum to bait users into responding." Wikipedia

"(v.) (1) To deliberately post derogatory or inflammatory comments to a community forum, chat room, newsgroup and/or a blog in order to bait other users into responding.
(2) To surf the Internet.
(3) To hang around a chat room reading the posts instead of contributing to the chat.

(n.) One who performs any of the above actions." Webopedia

Will people PLEASE stop flinging this word around anytime you don't like someone or whenever someone says something that you don't like???

Multiple profiles does not a troll make
A bitch email does not a troll make
A ranting blog does not a troll make

Get a fucking clue!

Hello Belle, good point. My guess is that the online definition of 'troll' will keep changing over time, to include who knows what? It may even come to mean some weird sexual position, who knows? I remember when a Troll was this ugly thing that lived under a bridge and demanded a toll of everyone to cross it, even at the cost of someone's virtue , and probably some were willing subjects.... see the bestiality blog

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, with the intention of baiting other users into an emotional response[1] or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion. Wiki

There are several definitions of what Troll means. And yes, having multiple profiles in order to create emotional response and havoc.. and we all know who she is.. is Trolling.
