  • Question

    I never quite understood this but why are people who come on police forums to bash on cops and call them names and stuff called TROLLS?? Trolls are midget dolls with hair sticking up if I remember....

      The term "Troll" is used all over the internet on almost every message board. "Troll" is a term used to describe somebody who makes posts to stir up trouble and gain attention.

        It comes from the word trolling, as in fishing. Trolls are people who post incindiary comments in attempts to bait others into making like comments and to expose the emotions of other people.

            I can't believe I asked this stupid question. I crack myself up sometimes.

            So they use the term "trolls" to describe idiots.....so why not just call them as is..."idiots".......

              I think it goes back to the fictional troll under the bridge who comes out and asks you stupid questions in order to cross the bridge. Best answer I could come up with at least.
              "Respect for religion must be reestablished. Public debt should be reduced. The arrogance of public officials must be curtailed. Assistance to foreign lands must be stopped or we shall bankrupt ourselves. The people should be forced to work and not depend on government for subsistence." - Cicero, 60 B.C.

                No! They're not fictional!

                I use them as cheap labor:
