The people they annoy and why is it so hard for people on this forum to read an English sentence? I keep finding myself reading back on my posts to make sure I haven't made a mistake and the majority of the time it's the idiot on the other end not reading it properly.

Well you seem to get annoyed quite easily and your sentence wasn't clear who you meant. So people probably have reason to question your unclear sentences, you just seem to be unaware of this.

Legit example of trolling right here.

Or maybe you're trolling. It's clear when you make statements like that that you're one of the people who misuse the word. There's a difference between a discusion with differing views.

Nahh this isn't trolling.  Why I started this thread. I don't think trolling is defined and a lot of forums are trying to ban trolling. Still not defined.

It all depends on how easily butthurt you become. Really irks me when people call someone a troll just because they've lost an argument. It's also sometimes really hard to tell the difference between a troll and an infinite retard though.

Trolling is actually fairly sophisticated depending on who does it and I really mean that, it isn't just making fun of someone or something, it's provoking and sometimes the really good trolls can end up stirring up a shit storm.

What is trolling?
 
  How is it defined?

Are you a troll?

Trolling is posting something just to get attention.

Trolling is posting something to disrupt the conversation.


The definition of the world trolling must have really changed a lot over the years.

Trolling back in the day meant to screw with noobs, as in. Lie to them, make them die in games or just mindfuck the shit out of them. Nowadays the word is used way out of context and by way too many teenagers.

I don't think the natural definition of trolling can extend to every act of trolling. For instance, my Alpha Male thread, 10,000BTC Loan, and 'I have a confession to make/I'm a tree' never really disrupted anyone, and I didn't post them for attention.

It was just my sarcastic way of asking or stating my opinion. Such as, "Why do people ask for extraordinary amounts of loans, and then posts on of the stupidest lies?"

From Wikipedia: In Internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

This sense of the word troll and its associated verb trolling are associated with Internet discourse, but have been used more widely. Media attention in recent years has equated trolling with online harassment. For example, mass media has used troll to describe "a person who defaces Internet tribute sites with the aim of causing grief to families."

Well done I was going to add to that about the media perception of what trolling is but you beat me to it, yes, online harassment isn't trolling, many news journalists know nothing about the internet so they don't know the different, plus they're morons so that doesn't help things much.

trolling
     Being a prick on the internet because you can. Typically unleashing one or more cynical or sarcastic remarks on an innocent by-stander, because it's the internet and, hey, you can.
       
        Guy: "I just found the coolest ninja pencil in existence."
        Other Guy: "I just found the most retarded thread in existence."
                                                                                                             -Urban Dictionary

Normally a "troll" is someone who likes to "troll" or tease you on any video game, social network, etc. Some people "troll" sometimes, but they do not intend it to hurt someone. Other people "troll" other people because they want to hurt them, this kinds of people are the scum of the internet.
