Definition Edit

Forum trolling is

the practice of lingering in a chat room or forum and reading the posts instead of contributing to the discussion, often used to denote a "spy" who observes what is being said or discussed and then reports that information to authorities or who attempts to maliciously disrupt conversations or agitate users in a forum or chat room.[1]
