A troll is a member of an Internet discussion forum whose main objective is to disrupt discussion by posting insults, off-topic remarks, and incorrect replies. They aim to provoke a negative reaction from other members. Trolls are thus a vital ingredient in making forums fun. Everyone loves a good troll and hates a bad troll.

Troll types

Copy Paste troll

The copy paste troll copies pastes random pieces of text often passing them off as their own to further their agenda. He also gives links to extremely long internet pages that are supposed to support his viewpoints but never do. Naturally he never pinpoints where these long articles support his views and wastes the opposition's time.

Examples of a Copy-Paste Troll

Buffalo Roam

Source Wizard

The copy paste troll should not be confused with the source wizard. The source wizard is able to find a fitting and appropriate reference within 29 seconds.
