What makes a troll a troll?

I've been wondering. The word is probably the most used here on this site along with 'mug' and 'goat'.

Anyone who disputes any of this is a troll.

Re: What makes a troll a troll?

usually it is biased posters who think their opinion is fact. they normally deliberately stoke up trouble by posting things they know will get a reaction.

they tend to have very skewed logic.

Re: What makes a troll a troll?

Trolls don't exist.
They are created by limited posters who have no clue how to deal with them.

Re: What makes a troll a troll?

A good troll lurks for a long time, a bad troll goes berserk and gets banned in 10 minutes - but I guess it depends on the modus operandi.

I think they love what they do whether anyone else does or not!

Re: What makes a troll a troll?

Someone who successfully gets a bad reaction out of anyone.

However, seeing as how easily the majority of the posters here get offended, everyone can be labelled as a troll by MTF standards .

Re: What makes a troll a troll?

Trollolol usually is obvious.

However, there are also some trolls that aren't as obvious, namely those who somehow seem to believe that one isn't capable to appreciate both a certain top player AND that player's rival, just as much.
This specific kind of troll will at times even troll you on other tennis forums just the same, claiming that you're a 'fake fan!', as it's the kind of troll that thinks you should BOW DOWN to whatever the 'one-and-only' fav player says & does.
And, uhm, somehow, I just don't feel capable of that, as I don't have my brains stuck in [insert whatever fav player]'s ass. Whenever one, two, or even more of favs speak out rubbish, I will call them out on that.

And even then, I still remain being a fan.
