Anyone ever heard of people who hired themselves out to forum owners as professional trolls to increase the traffic, and therefore the advertising revenue of the site? The reason I ask is because its seems clear that even most well behaved members show up for the troll circus as their first or second reason for attendance. I have over 4000 posts on a guitar forum for example, which decided a year ago to mop up the troll situation on their site...and lo and behold, there were some unintended consequences. Blowback!
