    Wikipedia says:

    In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

    The contemporary use of the term is alleged to have appeared on the Internet [sic] in the late 1980s, but the earliest known example is from 1992.

    Oh it is? Thanks I look it up. Now maybe you can answer some other questions.

    Where can I get a good, cheap phone plan?

    I'm looking for a gym in Albuquerque, does anyone know of any?

    Should I get a Chevy Volt or a Toyota Prius, what's better?

    What's better a Mac or a PC?

    Dammit I can't answer any of that right now, I'm busy carefully constructing my thread asking what the weather will be like tomorrow in San Diego, this is the only place where I can have that answered for me!!
