  • A troll is someone who has been constantly bothering other people which the trolls are also called "troublemakers". they mark your answer thumbs-down even when your answer is right. they are trying to get you suspended by reporting on your answers and questions for no reason. they are also answering questions with stupid, not related to the question answers that annoys you so much and that makes you argue with them. they also email you with threaten emails. so if you have receive that from a troll, don't reply back. Good Luck! also, I highly suggest that you should keep your answers & questions and network private, so they can't report on your questions and answers and they don't have to threaten your contacts and fans.
