I'm confused. Which is correct?

On Yahoo! Answers a troll is someone who makes deliberately offensive and/or insulting posts.

I always thought of a troll as being a short, fat, dark, and ugly cave dweller.

    In Rolexeo's case, both are correct, even down to his mom's basement which substitutes for a cave.

      <and ask stupid or annoying questions just to try and make atheists look bad> Yes, though in all fairness, that's clearly a two-way street.

    Trolls here are only trying to irritate Christians, who are trying to help.

    It's probably different in Europe, where they have real trolls.

    A troll lives under a bridge. A Yahoo troll lives under a Yahoo bridge.

  • On Yahoo R&S, a troll is somebody who talks about facts and reality, such as there is no god etc. Religious folks hate trolls.

      The only way they have any hope of gaining a soul is to marry a Christian. That is why trolls love to attend Christian weddings and steal the bride.

    The word troll refers to the trickster nature of internet trolls, and the physical description demeans them because they're usually mean-spirited.
