    Default What's a Troll ?

    What is a troll ? I have no idea, the only troll I ever heard of was in a fairy tale.

    Ask all the "dumb" questions you like. I think we all have at times.

    Just like spam which is still meat in a can to me ..... Though now I'm wondering what that meat might really be.

    spammer - that might be locoroo - someone who only posts to sell something. Sends out huge quantities of junk mail to people who didn't ask for it. Somebody must click on the links or buy the stuff or the marketing spam would stop. There's also the virus/scam spam, but that's more like internet fraud

    troll - anyone who posts outrageous stuff just trying to get attention. Named after unpleasant mythological beast that lived under bridges and ate people. Best ignored. Ie pretend you never saw the post.

    I like this website's take on various internet ratbags.
