What is a troll?

A Troll is an internet term used to describe a person who deliberately causes trouble in a newsgroup, forum, mailing list or other online community. Examples of trolling behavior include:

  • Posts that are complaining about or advertising something that is in no way related to the Rebel Legion, Star Wars, or costuming.
  • Any “You guys suck” “get a life” “Star Wars isn’t real you geeks” etc. type messages.
  • Starting topics that are guaranteed to turn into a flame war, i.e. Mac vs PC, Religion A vs. Religion B, Scotland vs. England, etc.
  • Posting lots and lots of threads with no point other than to clutter the boards.
  • Picking fights and saying mean things about or to people without reason.
