In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

While most webmasters and forum administrators consider trolls to be a scourge on their sites, some websites (such as the BOL 'Cooler) welcome tolerate them.

And here I thought a troll was a lurker, who gatehred dirt on on other posters. Like, hiding under a bridge...

controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages
