What is a TROLL and/or TROLLING?

Trolling: It relates to internet, is the deliberate act, (by a Troll, noun or adjective), of making random unsolicited and/or controversial comments on an internet forum with the intent to provoke an emotional reaction from unsuspecting readers to engage in a fight or argument

 

A troll is a person who starts flame wars or upsets people on the Internet by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, off-topic messages in an online community, such as a newsgroup or a forum with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional response, possibly for the troll’s specific benefit.

 

A troll is a person who intentionally antagonizes others online by posting inflammatory, irrelevant, or offensive comments or other disruptive content. Internet users adopted the word "troll" to denote someone who intentionally disrupts online communities.

 

A troll is someone who specializes in BAITING others to react to his or her off the wall posts.
