To utter a posting on the net designed to attract predictable responses or flames; or, the post itself. Derives from the phrase "trolling for
newbies" which in turn comes from mainstream "trolling", a style of fishing in which one trails bait through a likely spot hoping for a bite. The
well-constructed troll is a post that induces lots of newbies and flamers to make themselves look
even more clueless than they already do, while subtly conveying to the more savvy and experienced that it is in fact a deliberate troll.
