i know the billy-goat kinda troll, but why is gb (or whom ever) called a troll? are they stupid, naive, presently "trolling"? honestly, what are the intonations of a "troll"?

Somebody that posts rubbish on purpose.

edit - It can be quite theraputic. The more they post the more problems they have.

Specifically, someone who posts things that are deliberatly intended to get a reaction. Dean (/Witch King/Troll King/Osama Lives/etc) would be a good example of a troll.
