Trolls are a breed of creatures who like to post inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic things on the internet that are often very provocative and misleading and can cause emotional distress. These creatures are usually larger than the average human male, both in diameter and height. The average Troll can often be found wielding a club and a laptop for on-the-go trolling. Contrary to popular belief, trolls are rarely young children and are usually either teens or adults with no social life at all.

Although trolling has adapted throughout the ages, it has always been persistent.
