As far as I can tell. 90% of people on the internet use the word troll incorrectly. Therefore, I am making this post to explain what a troll is and
what a troll isn't.
What a troll is:
-Someone who gets their kicks by trying to inspire an emotion in you. Some trolls try to make people mad. Some try to make people laugh. Some even
tell really sad or inpirational stories to get people to cry. Some trolls have even been known to impersonate celebrities to make people really
-Someone who thrives on drama, by turning people against each other and watching the ensuing hilarity.
-Anyone who replies to this rant by calling me a troll.
What a troll is not:
-Someone offering a differing viewpoint. (Unless it's overtly ridiculous, like "We should kill all of the mentally handicapped")
-Someone who misspoke or said something without thinking. (See also: Cliven Bundy "Negro" Speech)
-Someone who doesn't understand something or requests clarification.
Learn what the word means and please use it correctly. Don't call everyone who doesn't agree with you a troll.
