Online, a "troll" refers to someone who intentionally engages in disruptive or provocative behavior to elicit emotional reactions or stir up controversy. Trolling involves posting inflammatory, off-topic, or offensive content with the intention of provoking others and derailing discussions. Trolls often thrive on creating discord, anger, or frustration within online communities or social media platforms.
Trolling can take various forms, such as leaving offensive comments, starting arguments, spreading misinformation, or engaging in personal attacks. Trolls may also use tactics like "flame wars," where they intentionally provoke others into heated arguments or engage in persistent harassment.
