Troll means 'one who behaves violently' eg. a bully. Nowadays people throw the word 'troll' to anyone who politely disagrees that the Earth isn't flat, or that a triangle has six faces, or because a person has an IQ above room temperature. No-one can POSSIBLY have an IQ above 120! Must be a 'troll'! Nobody can land on the moon! Impossible! You are a troll for saying so! Humans are not a primate! BS!!ASSJJJ;AK!!! troll!

Troll has many Urban definitions:<br />
<br />
1a. Noun <br />
One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument. <br />
<br />
1b. Noun <br />
A person who, on a message forum of some type, attacks and flames other members of the forum for any of a number of reasons such as rank, previous disagreements, sex, status, ect. <br />
A troll usually flames threads without staying on topic, unlike a "Flamer" who flames a thread because he/she disagrees with the content of the thread. <br />
<br />
1c. Noun <br />
A member of an internet forum who continually harangues and harasses others. Someone with nothing worthwhile to add to a certain conversation, but rather continually threadjacks or changes the subject, as well as thinks every member of the forum is talking about them and only them. Trolls often go by multiple names to circumvent getting banned. <br />
<br />
<br />
2a. Noun <br />
Sometimes compared to the Japanese ‘Oni’, a troll is a supernatural creature of Scandinavian folklore, whose race was thought to have carried massive stones into the countryside (although actually the result of glaciers). Lives in hills, mountains, caves, or under bridges. They are stupid, large, brutish, hairy, long-nosed, and bug-eyed, and may also have multiple heads or horns. Trolls love to eat ...

I don't get it. You give negative feedback on a Youtube video, suddenly people are telling you to go back under your bridge. How is that supposed to make sense?

it's commonly used online to designate someone who deliberately says something ridiculous or inflammatory just to get people worked up. there are other uses, too, i'm sure, though i've never heard the one you mentioned.<br />

of course, really it's a norse ice giant. it also used to mean a desperation hook-up at last call. terminology varies widely.

I kill trolls in skyrim. lol. Anyway yeah, in other words bully..but the way people use it, I got banned off of YA for asking what makes elements have a certain color, and apparently those in the community there believe posting science questions that require actual knowledge without copy/pasting is trolling.

Best Answer

ha! i remember "flamers" too, though that also used to mean something different. i'm sure i've heard "trolls" n that context for at least 10 years. but yeah, i'm sure when something is way over someone's head they may cry "troll" because they think nobody could really ask that question ;)
