    From Wiki:

    Person who sows discord on the Internet by trying to start arguments and upset people. They may do this by posting deliberately inflammatory,extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion

    This. The best trolling ever used to occur on Usenet. Nowadays too many people take honest disagreement, or even ignorance, as trolling. It is all about the intent.

    Tell me about it... I've learned that it is impossible to have a mature discussion on the internet among people with differing views and opinions without several people trying to dismiss the conversation as "trolling." Disagreement is not trolling... Just like lying is not sarcasm (another pet peeve).

    So I have a question - why does the troll get so much enjoyment from messing with people. I mean is their life that boring that they must cause drama with a bunch of strangers on a weight loss website? I barely have time to start drama in real life...let alone on the internet. :smile:

    that is my exact thought, lol.
