I have seen the term used on many game sites, but it seems to be interpreted differently at each one. I don't mean to start a flaming thread or any such thing, but am curious to know.
For instance, Sega-16 seems to be a good site for allowing posters to openly state their opinion, no matter how offensive it may be to some. I have been at other game forums where merely stating your opinion, especially if it differs from the admin and mods, gets you labeled as a troll.
Any ideas about exactly what defines a forum "troll"?
